true you


how would it feel to walk into any space knowing you are worthy, valuable, loved, and that you hold the power to make all your dreams come true?

Picture yourself sitting next to a stranger and you are the first person to strike up the conversation. Maybe your sitting in a lecture or meeting and you raise your hand without hesitation to ask a question or add value. How about you submit your resume for that promotion you've been wanting all while thinking to yourself how qualified and capable you are for the position.  You register (or re-register) for college knowing you are fully capable of passing each semester and you see yourself walking across the stage with honors. 

You've created a vision board with all your BIG dreams on it but you've backed up and started to focus on the ONE that is most important to you. You have bite size daily goals that you are consistently taking action on and you see yourself moving closer to living your big dreams without overwhelm. Worn out is a word that you have intentionally removed from your vocabulary because you've created a lifestyle of simplicity that works for you and your family.

Perhaps you realize the relationship your in isn't meeting your needs, it's unhealthy, abusive, or toxic and you put your foot down and exit without looking back! You've been dating someone and things are going well you feel it's time to take the next step and make the relationship official so you voice your feelings knowing that you deserve the absolute best.

When making decisions you no longer think back to your past and allow it to make you feel unworthy, incapable or undeserving. Instead you look forward and say "YES" it's time to go for what I truly desire without letting the doubts and fears from my past keep me stuck. 

I know you're the woman who has turned away from one or all of the experiences above. Your shy, you deeply fear embarrassment and rejection, speaking up totally freaks you out and procrastination takes hold in your life every single day! This means that you have SETTLED and you haven't stepped into your truth. Not to mention you haven't created your version of lasting happiness! 

How did it feel to picture yourself doing the things above? Exciting, freeing, exhilarating, amazing, satisfying, ecstatic, courageous, liberated, pleased, tenacious, and spirited?! I want you to know that you can totally be, do, have all of those amazing experiences above AND SO MANY MORE!

"Staci is one of those rare people in life that if you're lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with her, you do. No questions asked. She has the ability to truly help you see the light at the end of the tunnel, even when you feel like all hope is lost. Her own personal journey is incredibly inspiring, and her ability to build such a successful life and business so full of heart and soul - is even more inspiring. I am honored to have had the chance to work with her, I only hope more women get the chance to do so too."

  • The woman who is ready to go from stuck to started when it comes to her goals/dreams/aspirations 


Are you currently feeling like everyone but you has something to offer, some sort of talent or amazing skill? Are you confused about your life's purpose? Having trouble stepping into YOUR truth?

Finding yourself stuck in a cycle of draining and unfulfilling jobs? Maybe you're scared that you'll never feel whole and complete? Or maybe you're afraid that you'll never be the confident women God has called you to be in Him?

You're feeling unworthy, undeserving and beyond repair. You have floods of self-doubt constantly rushing in, and you're asking yourself who am I. You doubt that you actually matter. You feel like everyone else has it all together except you.

You knowing that you have God-given talents that this world NEEDS. You're completely aware of your life's purpose. You are embracing YOUR truth and living your life according to that truth. 

You're now going after or creating that career that set's your soul on fire. Your life is filled with an overflowing gratitude because you have allowed God to come into your heart and change your life. Due to you deciding to trust God you clearly see how He is faithful in giving you what you need, even confidence.

All your shame, guilt, and doubt have been left in the past because you believe God has made you white as snow. You live your life knowing you are the daughter of the most high king. You accept that you don't have it all together and neither does anyone else. All while knowing the truth that God doesn't call the qualified He qualifies the called! You wake up each day excited about your life because you have stepped into your truth and have put God at the center of your life.

All that self-doubt, lack of confidence, and those feelings of unworthiness have shifted into knowing and accepting that you are worthy and have been fearfully and wonderfully made. You are fully aware that God is using you to do amazing things in the world. 

How to be confident

Maybe you've read some books on personal development, listened to some podcast, and followed some amazing inspirational people on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Despite all that you just weren't able to put their inspirational messages into action all by yourself.

Don't forget all those long chats with your BFF who totally gets it and wants to change as well. So the two of you have vowed to help each other change, but fail on the accountability aspect. Each of you are thinking how can I tell her what to do when I'm struggling in the same or similar area? This leads to both of you letting each off the hook. You swap excuses and manage to make each other feel better about the fact that your not actually creating the life you desire. 

How do I know all of this? Because this was me, I was doing all of these same things. I was spinning my wheels trying these same things over and over only to grow more down on myself because I wasn't getting the results I truly desired. 

YOU HAVE FINALLY FOUND THE RIGHT PLACE AS I BELIEVE YOU WERE GUIDED HERE FOR A REASON. I AM CONFIDENT I CAN HELP YOU STEP INTO YOUR TRUTH AND LIVE A LIFE THAT TRULY MAKES YOU HAPPY!

"Staci one of the kindest, most supportive women I have ever worked with. She related with my life quickly and easily giving me advice I was able to put into action in my personal and professional life! Her easy going attitude, loving spirit and conversational coaching style make her a joy to work with.  Her southern accent is easy on the ears too!" 

- Melissa Kaye, Whole Life Success Coach


I'm Staci Gustiuc, life coach + change agent to women who are ready to go from worn out and stuck to relaxed and started with their goals and therefore their life. All while becoming free from doubt- doubt caused by rejection, domestic abuse, regret, mistakes, mindset blocks, or a combination of these. Freeing women from their doubt allows them to step into their truth and work towards their God-give purpose. I'm here to empower you until you know this truth, YOU were created on purpose for a purpose.  

Helping women break through old patterns of negative thoughts, belittling self-talk, and the belief that their past has rendered them unworthy, undeserving, and beyond repair is what light's me up inside. Being able to witness when a woman realizes how amazing, valuable, worthy, and totally capable she is leaves me speechless (in a fabulous way)!

By helping you change your thought patterns into positive and empowering messages you are then able to step into your truth and begin living a life of freedom. I help you learn to tell fear to grab a seat in the back and enjoy the ride as you fulfill your God-given purpose. 

Helping you take your BIG dreams and break them down into doable bite size daily goals/action steps truly lights me up. It's then that you begin to see just how much is possible and that you can start without overwhelm instead of being sent into a panic that would cause you to give up. Taking those BIG dreams in your head and putting them into focus so they become your reality is what I live to create with my clients!

I help you do all of these things because I once struggled with them as well. I allowed my life to pass me by due to a number of these things. I don't want you to do the same. I'm here to empower you to step into your truth and live out your God-given purpose. I allowed all those negative thoughts, belittling self-talk, doubts and fears to hold me captive for far too long. I will help you become the woman of God you were created to be.


SUCH A GREAT QUESTION! SO GLAD YOU ASKED, I LIKE YOU ALREADY!

how to go from self-doubt to confident and bold

I mentioned above that I struggled with self-doubt, negative thoughts, belittling myself, mindset blocks, and the belief that my past had rendered me unworthy, undeserving, and beyond repair just to name a few things. All of these things deeply effected the decisions I made and the course that my life took. There were many years where I was lost, unsure of myself and my abilities (actually I didn't think I had any), settled in my relationships, and allowed others to run all over me. This was all because I was too fearful to step into my truth.

For as long as I can remember I've been the shy girl who hid behind her mother afraid to speak up.  I was considered shy, easy-going, quite, loyal, fearful, and naive. I never wanted to speak up about anything out of the fear of being rejected, embarrassed, looking/sounding stupid, or being the odd one out. This meant I kept most of my true thoughts to myself or wouldn't bother to check-in with my feelings. I didn't create boundaries with people in my life. I didn't speak up for what I believed in. Worst of all I didn't value myself or my thoughts. This caused many trials in my life.


I constantly found myself in relationships that were unhealthy, unfulfilling, degrading, and left me feeling worse about myself after each one ended. I settled time and time again feeling like I didn't deserve more due to decisions I had made in my past. I was running from God trying to live by my own rules.

I'll share a personal experience with the intention to inspire you and to show you that it doesn't matter what your past is you can create the future you desire. 

At the age of 19 I entered into what would be my first serious long-term relationship. Prior to this I had just left an unhealthy living arrangement with "friends" and moved to another town. While hanging out with a girlfriend I had recently met at work I was introduced to several of her friends that we ran into one night. That night is definitely a blur to say the least, but I do know I gave him my phone number because he called me later the next day. I had NO IDEA who he was (scary)! I remember asking him to repeat his name like three or four times before I could recall him. After that he recapped how we met the night before which jogged my memory a bit. That was the beginning to a very rocky and long five years of my life!

Like any good mom my mother could clearly see red flags flying up all over the place and that was without me giving her much information about him. Naturally, I did the exact opposite of what she wanted me to do and ran straight towards him! (Side note, she will be pretty excited to see me admitting that she was right.) Since I was living with her at the time and it was her house and her rules I decided I had to get the h-e-double hockey sticks outta there and into my own place. My choice of words has greatly improved since then and I'm happy to admit that! 

So there I was living in my very first apartment alone. But not really truly alone in the physical sense. By now my new boyfriend was staying basically every single night with me. At the time I was completely happy about this you know the whole my house my rules kinda thing! The problem was I wasn't taking notes from my mom about what type of rules I should have for my house. Again, I lacked boundaries in every sense of the word!

 i had blinders on, ear plugs in, and was completely naive! 

I can recall him picking me up from work one night and us driving to my apartment. On the way there I heard voices yelling his name and as I turned and looked out the window I saw a car driving beside us with a few females inside. I don't remember him saying much or anything about it and I honestly thought they were some friends being silly. We make it to my apartment, got inside and got situated. I remember he was giving me a back massage when we heard something break outside. Someone had thrown a beer bottle at his car as they drove by. Not long after that there was an anxious and loud pounding on my front door. He reassured me he would get the door and handle the situation. Once he came back inside he told me it was nothing just some crazy ex-girlfriend who wasn't over him yet making a scene. I totally believed him. That was the first of many scenarios that played out while we were together. The only thing that really changed throughout the years was me not believing his stories as much. 

yet i wanted to believe him, I wanted it to work, so i stayed!

As time went on I became more aware of his non-committal behavior, his constant lies, his angry temper and outburst, and his lack of respect towards me. You know if I was reading this and someone else was the author I'd be screaming on the inside LEAVE! LEAVE and never look back, he's no good for you, girl you deserve so much better, just leave. I'd also be wondering why in the world does she stay? Is she stupid, blind, desperate to be in a relationship? It just wouldn't make sense to me. But since I was knee deep in it I couldn't really see things like that. There were many occasions when we broke-up due to me catching him in a lie or finding something inappropriate on his phone, MySpace Page, or in his email. Yes, I had turned into that crazy girlfriend who searched through his things because he had given me plenty of reasons not to trust him. I had become a detective as he liked to refer to me.

Other times I was receiving phone calls from girls telling me about their encounters, letters in our mailbox, or my car was being vandalized. Despite all of that we would quickly reconcile and I'd still have hope that this time would be different. I hoped things would be different because we had so much history together. You know the story we had been through the good and the bad together. Not to mention we had invested so much of our time and effort into the relationship and if I quit then it would have been all for nothing. I just wasn't ready to let that happen, so I held on and I held on...

live in a constant state of stress!

Seriously stress became a normal feeling for me over the course of many years. Our relationship had exploded into more of a mess and turned dangerously toxic. It had become abusive both mentally, physically, and emotionally! I remember the very first time our argument turned physical. I don't remember what the topic of the argument was but I remember him pacing around the apartment in anger. We were yelling at each other going from the living room to the bedroom. At some point he took my cell phone and threw it and there it was sticking out of my bedroom wall. I was shocked and pissed off all at the same time. Then he pushed me down and I fell onto the bed. The look on my face gave it all away. He knew immediately I couldn't believe what just happened, I was so shocked he put his hands on me! I don't recall how he left but I remember going to lock the door and him coming back very quickly wanting back in. I remember him sitting outside the door begging for me to let him in, he was crying, and apologizing. 

I was shocked, scared, pissed off, sad, and confused all at the same time. This was my first experience with a man putting his hands on me. I couldn't believe I had allowed this to happen to me. How did I put myself in such a position? I had always said no man would ever put his hands on me. Yet there I was. It was over I thought, I'm done! What's sad is that was the least aggressive physical altercation we ever had and that's because our relationship wasn't over. We quickly made up and went on our way. Did he promise that he would never do it again? YES, he sure did. Did he tell me numerous times he was sorry? YES, he sure did. Did I believe him? Absolutely! 

I feel like I should add this little side note in. I realize that some people might think I'm making a big deal out of a very small situation. I use to be one of those people who thought that way. But that's because I had been surrounding myself with people who experienced these types of situations (or worse) or were the people causing them so they were normal occurrences in their eyes. It wasn't until many years later I truly learned that this type of behavior is wrong, totally unacceptable, totally inappropriate, and completely out of line. I urge you to research the effects of domestic violence especially the generational ones. If you find yourself in an abusive relationship seek out help now.

There are many parts to this story but I'm sure you get the idea by now. I was in this toxic and at times abusive relationship for about five years and it wasn't pretty. It was stressful, demoralizing, confusing, heartbreaking, and painful. However I dug deep within myself and left for good. I had to move about eight hours away to give myself plenty of distance while I separated my head from my heart and got back on my feet. 

I found confidence in myself and my decision. I made fear take the back seat as I changed the course of my life (doing this was terrifying). I created boundaries. I became courageous! Most importantly I stepped into my truth!

Once I did that so many things in my life began to change for the better. This wasn't an overnight change though as I still had many things to work through. I can tell you this I was able to enroll in college full-time, made amazing new goal driven friends, met and married an amazingly supportive and loyal man, graduated with my bachelors of science with honors, and started my own business that truly makes a difference in the world. My biggest accomplishment to date is being a mama to the most amazing daughter I could have ever asked for. She was with me every step of my journey, she is my WHY, she is my reason for dreaming big, she is my motivation and inspiration. She is the one who opened up my eyes while she could barely open her own! Had I not had her I might still be in that relationship. God knew what I needed to wake up and get my life in order!
