Presentation Title: The Dream Is Free, but the Hustle Is Sold Separately


Stanley is the single mom of a tiny toddler who lives and works in Downtown Dallas (CBD). She is a real estate broker/mediator and owner/founder of Ashley’s Apartments LLC and proud parent of a three-year-old Basenji dog. “I can be found most days at Main Street Garden doing back flips with my son, him, not me. Those days are over! Oh, and I am finishing up my last year of Graduate School at SMU.”

Anything else?

Stanley says life is busy and cannot be left to chance, good fortune or luck. “Dreaming, hoping and wishing must be accompanied by drive, determination and dedication. That requires planning because you have to be ready to receive success.”
