Hi, I’m Stephanie Be and I believe in the power of story-telling.

I can do the things I love (such as travel), because I manage a location independent career.

However, it takes more than coffee-binges to tell a good story.

Writing, photography, video, sustaining community engagement, managing partnerships, implementing growth strategy — and blog intelligence such as CSS and SEO — demands real, tangible skills and time!

An award-winning and fast-growing blog, allow TravelBreak to share our stories and professional knowledge with you:

If a brand or destination aligns with the personal interests of the TravelBreak team, we can develop a partnership to curate and distribute engaging content.

Please see more under “story-telling.”

If you’d like to learn to tell your own story, as an organization or personal brand — I also offer consulting packages in content curation, brand development, growth strategy, pitching, and beginner’s blogging.

Please see more under “consulting.”

Over 250,000 followers in under 18 months of blogging.

Stephanie taught me to showcase the value I offer clients. I didn’t know what they were looking for, but she had the marketing experience to see their side. Together, we developed my pitching strategy. I always knew I wasn’t selling myself short, she taught me how to prove it.
Taylor Burk, Photographer and Influencer
I had no idea what I was doing reaching out to influencers and press about my new product. I saw a HUGE change with Stephanie’s strategy. We have a lot of work to do, but it helps to have an expert to call on for feedback.
Sunny Sangha, Small Buisness Owner
Stephanie taught our team how to create original content for our social media channels and develop operating procedures, so that interns could sustain and implement a master strategy.
