Stormy Wellington – Event Visionary
In business as in life, Coach Stormy Wellington had humble beginnings and though she was born with a burning desire to succeed, she had yet to find the vehicle to take her to the heights she was destined to aspire. A genuine product from Miami, Florida. Coach Stormy has literally traveled the world helping thousands resonate inner peace and wealth. In the book, The Quiet Storm, authored by Coach Stormy Wellington, she shares how her mother wanted to abort her and she was even named “Stormy” because her mother felt that it captured her pregnancy. What a way to begin – but as it has been said, “it is not how you start but how you finish.” Because she refused to let her past dictate her future, she has since become a multi-millionaire several times over. Stormy Wellington has truly lived her motto that “Faith is Power.” She believed her life could be better no matter how dismal it looked at the time, and that nothing was impossible. She now instills that belief system into everyone around her. Coach Stormy Wellington is driven by her desire to help people. She believes “Each and every one of us has a role, and that role is to solve someone else’s problem! Once you get in alignment with the problem that only you can solve, is when you discover your life’s purpose.” Her campaign to help 1,000 families make six figures earned her the Visionary Award from TLC in 2016. Her philanthropic efforts extend to the Wellington Angel House in Africa, and she has also opened The Well Foundation, a non-profit organization to give back to communities in need.
Annetta Powell – Host
At the age of 24, I was tired of living paycheck to paycheck and I decided that I was no longer going to work as a Materials Coordinator for Johnson Controls, a job I had started when I was 19. I realized that I was never going to be rich working for someone else. True wealth comes from having multiple streams of income. I assure you that you will learn so much about how to create true freedom in your life. You will grow as an entrepreneur and as a human being.
Marvin Sapp – Musical Guest
Bishop Marvin L. Sapp is a passionate orator and biblical teacher, who desires to be a living epistle glorifying our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ both in word and in deed who serves as the senior pastor of Lighthouse Full Life Center Church as well as Bishop over Global United Fellowship North Central Providence. Many say his voice is instantly recognizable with a characteristically raspy ringing with power and authority as he masterfully illustrates with excellence the Word of God. Not only is his delivery exemplary, but his knowledge of the historical text brings to life the message of hope and healing. Singing since age four he has shared the stage with many gospel notables and his gift is celebrated across musical genres. He began singing with the gospel group Commissioned in 1990. In 1996, God led him to go solo. He released his first CD “Marvin Sapp”, then Grace and Mercy”, then his CDs were as follows: “Nothing Else Matters”, “I Believe”, “Diary Of A Psalmist”, “Be Exalted”, “Thirsty”, “Here I Am”, “I Win” and in 2013 he released his Christmas Card CD that featured his three children. The backdrop for the CD “I Win” came from him mitigating the pain of the loss of his wife through conversations with God. The title “Here I Am” for gospel star Marvin Sapp is more than a little ironic when one considers that, “Never Would Have Made It” from his 2007 release “Thirsty” has been among the most ubiquitous gospel and R&B songs. According to Billboard, Marvin Sapp single “Best In Me” matched the 2008 peak of his seminal “Never Would Have Made It.”
