Before she began helping people reach their financial goals, Stormy Wellington was struggling to keep her own head above water. According to Wellington’s personal website, Wellington grew up moving from home to home in an unstable environment that, at one point, included foster care. After dropping out of high school in the ninth grade, working at a strip club at 13 years old to provide for her family, and becoming a young mother at 15 years old, Wellington managed to turn her life around. Years later, Wellington is a self-made millionaire and is coaching others to reach their financial and spiritual goals through several entrepreneurial endeavors, including Girl Hold My Hand Inc., Economic Excellence, 1000 Families, and CBD company, Wells CBD, according to Motivation.
Through Girl Hold My Hand Inc., Wellington provides coaching services to women all over the world looking to build their own self-esteem. Economic Excellence and 1000 Families are financial-based projects launched by Wellington that aim to bolster a level of economic success for Black people and other minorities, per Motivation. “As a Black woman who comes from where I come from, and has been through what I’ve been through, I didn’t see anyone make it out,” Wellington told Motivation. “So I decided that once I got out, I was gonna show my peers, my friends, my family and my community that if I could do it, they could do it to. My goal is to always be the example, never the excuse.”
