How does someone accidentally get famous? When they show up on a billboard - in Times Square - in her underwear.
If that's all she did, Stacy Nadeau would be worth talking to.
What if I told you that's barely scratching the surface. That Stacy Nadeau is all about building OTHERS up, having a support system, and how to build your own supportive network if you don't have one in your family or existing network.
And though you wouldn't guess it, this is the FIRST ever podcast Stacy has ever done. Give it a listen, and you'll figure out how you can make a difference with your own image, whether you're male or female, tall or short, skinny or not so skinny. Stacy calls this your "Esteem Team" and you can use this in your business and your life.
She also provides some great insights into networking, body image, and why she hired a direct competitor to be her business coach.
And a bunch more than that!
In the summer of 2005, six women made national news when they appeared on a Times Square billboard, dressed only in their underwear. While other nearby billboards features actresses and supermodels, this one, promoting Dove brand products, promoted real women with real curves and the nation went wild. Dove’s mission was “to make more women feel beautiful every day by widening the stereotypical theme of beauty and by inspiring women to take great care of themselves.”
Suddenly, Stacy, an industrial organizational psychology major at DePaul University, was thrust into the national spotlight. As one of the real women featured in the ad campaign, Stacy quickly emerged as a spokeswoman for healthy body image. She appeared on the Today Show, CNN, Ellen, Dr. Phil, Tyra, and Oprah (twice).
Since then Stacy has committed her life and career to helping women feel great about themselves. Stacy lives in Chicago, IL with her husband, Tim and pup, Dyson. She works full-time as a speaker, consultant, and coach to empower women everywhere.
