Atlanta, Georgia , Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stephanie Hess once lived in a powerful world of Fortune 500 companies. You’d think this is a success story about a woman climbing to the top. Instead, this success story was how she freed herself from a life she didn’t love and then built one she did. 

With a prestigious background in business and having worked for major movers and shakers like Estee Lauder and the New York Knicks, she thought she’d found her way, but something was off. In fact, when she did finally leave her corporate career, she found she’d been diagnosed with “Corporate PTSD.” How was that possible? She’d been doing everything she thought she was supposed to. Where was the happiness and satisfaction, along with her authenticity?

The amazing part is that after learning of her diagnosis, she was able to heal and move forward, unblocking her way. It was this very challenge that helped her reach her entrepreneurial mission and succeed.

It was when she let go of the notion that she had to do things one particular way, that she finally found her best life, one that suited her and brought her complete success, a thriving business, and a full heart.

Today, Stephanie teaches other high-achieving entrepreneurs how to design their signature “secret sauce” offer, package it as a premium ticket service, effortlessly enroll the right clients and create predictable $10k, $15k+ months while filling your soul. She understands the many challenges people have that stop them from fully implementing a life they love. People get stuck at the hurdles, and she helps them move the needle in their businesses, so they can increase their bottom line

Flowhub hires former Glassdoor exec Stephanie Jenkins as SVP of sales

When Stephanie Jenkins got on a Zoom call in early May, she knew it would be one of the toughest days of her career.

Then an exec at the job-hunting site Glassdoor, Jenkins says she understood the economic recession caused by the pandemic hurt many industries, but perhaps none more than recruiting. As company budgets dry up, hiring is usually the first cost on the chopping block. 

“I had to fire my entire team of about 160 people over a Zoom call that morning,” Jenkins told Business Insider over the phone. Glassdoor laid off around 300 people that day, mostly shuttering its Chicago office, and Jenkins said that as part of those layoffs she’d be leaving her job by the summer.

Jenkins said that while she was still at Glassdoor, she’d had a series of conversations with Flowhub CEO Kyle Sherman. When the two set up a formal interview, Jenkins said what was supposed to be a 45-minute interview turned into a two-and-a-half-hour conversation.

“We talked very theoretically about where the business is going, how it’s operating, and how to make it better,” Jenkins said.

In September, Jenkins made the jump into the cannabis industry as Flowhub’s senior vice president of sales, a strong signal that investors and executives from inside and outside of cannabis think that the tech side of
