I believe its about what you're made of. When I speak this becomes a reality to my audience. I was the "Queen B" of Reading. I was a pimp, a drug dealer and I hung out with murderers, thugs, and Bloods. I nearly lost my life and my children due to not only my lifestyle, but my drug addiction. I found a way- the ONLY way to overcome both, and I know I can't keep it unless I give it away. I have a powerful message that is real, inspiring, and triumphant. I know what its like to be at the bottom of the barrel and now I know happiness and success. I just finished my first book - a biography about my life and those who influenced my transformation. I am also a speaker on Asperger's Disease.
from just meeting Stacy, you feel an amazing energy that ALONE can change your life. that should about sum her up! i'm hitting eight months sober myself soon, and i think putting stacy's book or meeting her in person should be on everyone's bucket list. incredible, sweet, caring, STRONG AS HELL, amazing. i love you, stacy!!!!
My name is Christian and I work for the Soverign Center in Reading. I hired Stacy recently to speak at a Regional recovery Banquet/Celebration. She was one of 10 speakers scheduled for the banquet. This is an annual event. She spoke last as I hired her last. Her story had the room completely silent. She had the audience captivated. All eyes and ears were on her. Her message was heartbreaking and triumphant! She made us laugh, cry and love her. She was the only speaker to receive a standing ovation. And it was loud in that room. She was mobbed afterword by her audience. They wanted more of her. They "rooted" for her. I will have her back every year. Best speaker I have seen in a long time. Real, honest and endearing. Powerful, Powerful message of recovery, street life, devastation and VICTORY over not only addiction, but acceptance. I will personally recommend her to anyone that inquires with me about speakers. AMAZING!

"Motivational speaker Stacy Butler didn’t start out changing people’s lives. Far from it.
Coming from a loving household, Stacy was a
high school head cheerleader, homecoming queen, star
athlete, and trendsetter. Her friends and family adored
her, and she believed she had it all. Then, out of
curiosity, she began flirting with alcohol and drugs, first beer and bourbon, then marijuana, then cocaine. The rush of power that came with coke led her into the world of prostitution, not as a prostitute or even a madam, but a full-fledged, hardcore pimp who had no qualms about hitting a man or woman in the face if that’s what it took. She became the infamous Queen B, short for Queen Bitch. Stacy wore the title proudly— literally—as a tattoo on her right arm.
In her early thirties, she became addicted to crack cocaine, then in order to support her habit, she sold it and ran a crack house in her mother’s home. After being under police surveillance for more than a year, she was picked up by one of her best customers, who turned out to be a state trooper.
The trooper offered her a deal. Become a confidential informant and avoid jail time and continue using in exchange for her connections. Stacy considered it but knew that accepting the offer would come with the high price tag of losing her special needs son to the social workers who were already on her trail. She couldn’t do it.
Instead Stacy began her journey to change her life for the better. Two years later, she walked into prison to face a four-year sentence, clean and sober with a new life, new house, new job, new car—and four months pregnant. A model prison, she mentored more than three hundred inmates while incarcerated. She was allowed outside gate clearance, which was unheard of, so that she could speak to schools about drug addiction.
When she had been out of prison a year, her mother, who had finally accepted Stacy back into her life, was killed in a car crash. While still grieving the loss, Stacy turned to Michael, her best friend and Prince Charming. A Vera Wang wedding followed. A white picket fence. Her two children. Clean and sober, Stacy was living the dream. Four months later, Prince Charming left her for another woman. Turning back to drugs was not an option. Giving into grief was not an option. Neglecting her children was not an option. The only option was to move forward. That is the ultimate message of THE QUEEN B. The only way out is through, and broken dreams are no excuse for giving up. Sometimes humorous, sometimes brash, always inspirational, Stacy Butler is a courageous voice for survival."
I was made to speak. I am a professional. I am always early and prepared. I generally speak for one hour but can enlarge or reduse my platform based on a clients needs. I speak in recovery forums, Christian forums, motivational forums, business and education. I have lived in Reading, PA all of my life. I speak locally and will travel. I have just finiished my first book which is waiting to be published. I am particularly fond of all-women audiences. I have been speaking for 3 years consecutively, but started in 2003. My fees are very reasonable and conducive to appropriate market conditions. I have negotiated in some situations and I speak free of charge in certain circumstances which will be discussed privately with clients. I love what I do and maintain a professional work ethic at all times. My clients and I have ongoing business relationships and I have done many repeat performances. I also have an associate who is a professional speaker that is available under the same platform. Her message is just as powerful and similar. I am an overcomer of abuse (all kinds), mental health issues,drug addictions and drug dealing- and most importantly I am a lover and respecter of women- an amazing feat in and of itself as I used to sell them for sex and money! I live in Exeter with my husband and children. I am happy and successful.
