Adversity is a part of the human experience. These adversities challenge us to our core. We’re forced to choose our path and in this way, our response to the adversity we face speaks volumes as to who we are and who we become. Stephen J. Bailey is living proof that no matter what life throws at us, we are the masters of our own destiny. Owner of With a PH Digital Marketing & Development, Stephen works daily in web, social media, video, photo, and advocating for northeast Indiana.
Stephen was born in Fort Wayne and raised in the Evangelical faith, unaware of any other way of life. As Stephen grew up, he felt friction between the happiness he desired and the life he was told he needed to live. His relationship with his faith changed as he learned more about the world and stopped hiding his sexual-orientation. After years of bearing the heaviness of who he is, he reached a breaking point at 28 where he contemplated suicide. It took years of having the courage to face some of his biggest challenges before Stephen stepped out of a life of shame, sadness, and codependency, and created one he loved. He left a management position in corporate America and opened his business full-time. Overcoming numerous obstacles, Stephen was determined to follow his heart.
Stephen now lives a fulfilling existence. He’s a shining embodiment of someone who was able to overcome incredible odds to create a life of abundance. Join us for this inspiring event as Stephen shares with us his most vulnerable moments, and tells us how this resurgence into a beautiful life came to be through having the courage to face some of the most daunting challenges and how we can do the same.
There will be a cash bar and food will be provided by Caliente.
