Here’s the thing you absolutely must know about Maggie Stephens: She’s your best friend and personal cheerleader from the moment she meets you. She wants you to succeed as a small business owner, and she will give you the tools you need to get there!
As the Direct-to-Corporate Leader for the HOME Team, Maggie is our Mama Owl—and she owns that title flawlessly! Her HOME Team has over 1200 designers across 47 states plus Puerto Rico… and soon we will be adding Canada to the mix!
The HOME Team has achieved AMAZING things under Maggie’s leadership– six of our designers earned the 2014 Origami Owl Incentive Trip to Maui!
Because of her success story, Maggie’s been asked to speak at several Origami Owl training sessions: two National Conventions, the 2014 Director’s Academy, the 2014 Leadership Summit, and the 2013 SOAR event… plus, she serenaded us all at the 2015 SOAR event in Nashville with her bluegrass band! She’s multi-talented, and she uses all those amazing talents to help you ROCK your business. In 2013, she earned the Making the Origami Owl Difference Award for her inspirational leadership in cultivating a team that is absolutely committed to the O2 mission: being a Force for Good.
Outside of O2, Maggie is a full time mom to her own amazing daughter, Lilly. She also helps her husband Brian rock all of his musical endeavors… he’s a fantastic guitar, banjo, and mandolin player! In her free time (what free time?!), Maggie sings and plays bluegrass with Brian and their band, rides show horses, and volunteers with the Monroe Junior Woman’s Club. She’s even found time to earn her Doctorate of Education in Teacher Leadership!
