Speaker Shay Grace's   Bio

I'm Speaker Shay Grace...


I used to be one of those talented employees stuffed behind a desk making someone else rich.

I had to leave my kid every day to go to a job I hated, only to not make enough money. When I'd get a day off, I'd procrastinate on my dream of becoming a full time entrepreneur; because of a deep sense of fear, unworthiness and doubt that stemmed from childhood sexual abuse.

In spite of my talent, connections and professional experience I was blocked with limiting beliefs, that keep my dream elusive.


Through many major life setbacks, including becoming a voiceless mute for years, I finally learned strategies and techniques of resiliency, that helped unblock me and allowed me to move into being a successful entrepreneur. 

My passion is to travel and speak to teach others how to beat the odds, when the storms of life hit. My intention is to help the audience understand, that no matter what, they can... "Get Up...and Still Win!"


During those darkest years of my life I learned special techniques to overcome obstacles, depression, poverty and to stay motivated and make money with my other talents and education.

Now I teach aspiring entrepreneurs and those in transition, how to crush procrastination, break fear, I help burnt out entrepreneurs bounce back to cash flow.
