Today we’d like to introduce you to DrStacey Venable.
Hi DrStacey, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
This is how I started: One day, I went to a business hub to rent an office space. When I arrived there, the atmosphere was so stale and had no energy. I didn’t stay there long. Know one say good morning or good evening.
I figured if they can open up a business hub, why can’t I. I started on this journey with another woman. This business hub was for women only. This would have been a great idea if there were enough business hub women in the area. We had a hard time selling suites and memberships.
So, a year into our business, we parted ways. I was devastated. I was left owning my business hub and running it as well. I decided to move forward and keep the business. I changed my name and decided to get another partner who is a long-time friend.
We opened The Business Suites At Brass Mill. This Business Hub was for everyone to occupy office space and participate in our membership program. We have gotten involved with the Seniors in our community and organized a club that meets every Tuesday and Thursday. We also do annual Pop Up Shops with other small business owners and entrepreneurs.
The Business Suites At Brass Mill offers business coaching, mentorship, and Concierge packages that fit the needs of all business owners, and we also have a web designer. We have a Podcast Studio on the property as well. We love to say “we are a one-stop shop”! I decided to continue my success and open other business hubs
in the surrounding areas.
It has truly been a stressful journey. Only the strong survive in the world of business and entrepreneurship. I am a survivor, and I plan on traveling the world and selling my business plan to other individuals that would like to start a thriving business hub.
All the trials and tribulations I underwent were necessary to make it into the winning circle. The Business Suites At Brass Mill has accompanied so much over the past two years. And I am proud to be the owner. When you come to Brass Mill, you gain not only a business you gain a family as well.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been fairly smooth?
Starting the Business Suites At Brass Mill was a struggle. My partner, who owned the other business, walked out on me, owing me thousands of dollars. She left me to manage and operate the company on my own. I was at the time a full-time professor and a business coach as well.

The very first vision I had of Entrepreneurship was being a Cosmetologist. I worked as a Licensed Beautician for 5 years. And I still have my license today.
