We had the good fortune of connecting with Stacey Lindsay and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Stacey, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
I strive to collaborate with people that hold two things paramount: They aim to put out a product or service that lifts up people, and they follow through on the message they present by practicing it behind closed doors. This means founders and “leaders” who treat their employees well by providing equity, respect, good pay, and inclusive, malleable working conditions. As an editorial consultant, working with such individuals motivates my work. It helps me to help them amplify their story. And on the journalistic side of my work, I strive to always cover the stories of people really following through on trying to make the world more inclusive and equitable for people.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I’m proud to lead a dual career in which one side feeds the other. Firstly, I’m a multimedia journalist and writer. I’ve anchored and reported the news, worked at various magazines, and had the opportunity to interview hundreds of incredible people. On the other side of my career I am a creative editorial consultant. I work with mission-focused brands to help them home in on their mission, tell their story, and build authentic and compelling content. My clients widely vary, from a mission-focused bespoke clothing designer to an alternative food magazine to a weekly digital newspaper to an impact investing magazine to others, but they all have one thing in common: They are truly aiming to make the world a more beautiful, compelling place, and they strive to treat those with whom they work very well. Helping people to tell their stories gives me hope. And, I must say, creating compelling content that is well-written and well produced is one of the smartest business moves a company can make right now. Good, clean, honest content rises above the clutter on the web, for sure.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
As anyone familiar with this city know, LA is filled with eclectic, amazing spots all around. My favorite places to have dinner include Blue Cow Kitchen (which sadly closed, but it’s worth noting), The Reel Inn, Santa Monica Seafood, The Heights Deli, Casa Bianco for pizza, and Lowboy (for a great burger). I aim for casual these days. The LA Historic Park in Chinatown is an incredible gem. Head there for a Saturday afternoon of frisbee, then grab a bottle of natural wine at Angeleno Wine Company afterwards.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to give a shoutout to Teal Cannaday, by far one of the entertainment industry’s most loyal, savvy, kind, dedicated entrepreneurs and PR mavens out there. Teal and I met when I first moved to LA many moons ago. (She was behind my job working for James Caan.) She is the most incredible friend and person to have in your court—ever.
