Hi! My name is Stacie Mahoe and I am a big family sports mom of 8 active kids living in Hawaii married to my high school sweetheart. I enjoy going beyond Xs and Os and digging into the various intangible life lessons learned through sports.
I grew up playing softball and have been involved with the game in some way shape or form since I was 9 years old. From coaching athletes for over 2 decades, to raising of bunch of them for even longer than that, not to mention being married to one who still trains consistently and competes from time to time, sports has been, and likely always will be a big part of my life.
But as challenging and FUN as being a competitive athlete is, for me, there’s nothing like the joy and love and laughter and happiness AND personal growth that comes with being a mom. I don’t know about you, but my kids push me out of my comfort zone on a regular basis. They push the envelop in so many ways, I have no choice but to learn and grow in the process. Being a mom is a journey like no other and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. It’s provided some of my most incredible moments as well as the most devastating and painful ones too, and yet it remains one of the most beautiful adventures I know.
I’ve learned a TON over the years and one of my favorite things to do is share experiences and lessons learned to help others be their best while avoiding some of the pitfalls I dove straight into.
I hope the articles and resources you find here get you THINKING, and give you new angles to consider your actions and decisions from … rather than living, playing, coaching, parenting, or leading on “autopilot,” not even fully aware of WHY you’re doing what you’re doing nor the implications your actions may have below the surface and/or over the long haul.
While positive coaching and positive sports parenting has been around for quite some time, I believe we’re still just scratching the surface of what’s possible when it comes to harnessing the power of love in leadership.
Excellent leadership is worth it’s weight in gold and that’s where YOU come in! Alone, we can do so little. Together, we can do SO much. Remember, your game (or life) grows when you grow. Your team (or children) do better when you do. Keep learning. Keep growing. Keep making a positive impact in the lives you lead!
I’m here to share my absolute favorite secret weapons, tips, and resources as well as support, encourage, nurture, and inspire you as you do this valuable work in our community <3
So glad you’re here. I look forward to getting to know you better 🙂
