Nearly everybody goes through a truly terrible event that pushes them to the edge of depression at some point in their lives.
For Stan Pearson II, the sequence of events that would defeat him began after he earned his degree and moved to Texas to open a Latin dance studio. As he ran his studio, he continued studying for another degree while also working at a university. He would later land a job with a good-paying consulting firm. He had life figured out, or so he thought. Out of the blue, they laid him off and only offered two weeks of severance pay.
These events crushed Stan’s spirit. It was the first time he felt utterly lost, depressed, and defeated. He would end up living out of his car, afraid to tell his friends and family the truth.
However, Stan did not choose to stay down. Since then, he has worked hard to get to where he is and is now recognized as an Award-winning bi-lingual Mindset Expert and a leading authority on Virtual Engagement for Small Businesses & Entrepreneurs.
Stan is a black male from Chicago who can speak Spanish and salsa dance. Those two unique characteristics that he brings to his business are part of his service offering in some way. Stan also has a coaching masterclass called The SALSA Life, which turned into one of the leading engagement sessions in the country. In those sessions, he shows people how they can take their unique skills and craft them into an exclusive marketing and branding message.
He was able to improve his coaching skills from interviewing celebrities all over the country. The exchanges would give him the experience he would need to coach individuals on how they could be their most authentic selves, regardless of who they were around or who they were speaking to.
Stan’s original brainchild is Breathe Diversity, LLC. He understood that there were two things people could not live without, breathing and diversity. From there, he came up with the name and the commitment to put everything that follows into it.
He has also created Mental Flight School, which is affectionately known as Netflix for Leaders. It is a virtual academy that caters to athletes, aspiring leaders, and service members who want to strengthen their minds, grow their confidence and sharpen their decision making at home and in life.
Stan is also the Chief Visionary for Virtualize Your Enterprise. There he helps entrepreneurs elevate themselves and their businesses in the eyes of their clients and competition to make them more money and secure their virtual real estate through branding, engagement, and effective communication.
He has become the go-to voice in the virtual engagement space over the last several years.
Despite how busy Stan has gotten in his road to success, he has managed to cut down his travel schedule by 50% two years ago so that he can proudly take care of his son, Stan III, calling it Daddy Daycare. He works from home full-time. He will proudly let you know his loving wife, Cynthia brings home the bacon, and he does whatever he can to cook it!
