"I have been a home based business coach for just under a year and am BEYOND grateful that I joined the her Refinery team, but even more so that I have Seay as my up-line coach. From the moment I told her I was ready to join her team she has been an amazing mentor. From the very beginning when I had no clue where to start up until now she has given me the resources, tools and support I have needed to be successful in this business. It is no secret that she is the “Nutrition Queen” and knows just about everything about it, but what a lot of people do not know is how caring, sincere, thoughtful and intelligent she is! Her degree in psychology and her corporate background have certainly been put to great use in this business! Her passion for Nutrition and healing with food takes it to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
What I REALLY LOVE about Seay is how INSIGHTFUL she is and how she really digs in to help you figure out what you need to do next. When I say “what you need to do next” I need to clarify that it is not HER agenda, EVER. When I have scheduled calls with her she sets aside HER time and agenda and listens to what is going on in my business; she then helps me figure out a plan of action not by TELLING me what to do, but through series of questions that lead me to my own realizations! Her commitment to helping her team GROW and DEVELOP is paramount! This has contributed to her success in this business as well as her team’s success!
Something about Seay that I think is so unique is her ability to see the big picture view in this business—> she always takes it back to truly helping people live better, more fulfilling lives which is what it is all about. By staying true to this calling she has developed a phenomenal business while helping OTHERS do the same. I thank my lucky stars for HER as well as THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY everyday!" -Tracy Adams
"A mediocre coach will tell you. A good coach goes further to explain. A superior coach then demonstrates. Seay INSPIRES!
Seay is everything a leader/mentor should be. She is practical and relatable. Seay took time to help me build my road map to success. She introduced me to other professionals which allowed me to build my network and grow. On so many occasions she has been a sounding board and a safe place. More profoundly, she has listened to my hopes, dreams, and my fears. Seay awakened a fire within me that I lost somewhere between being a coach, teacher, wife, and mother. She saw potential in me when I didn't see it in myself. Seay has become one of the most influential people in my life. Being apart of her team "The Refinery" is a gift, a blessing....truly greater than I ever imagined. I'm beyond blessed to call her my coach, mentor, and friend." - Becky Hilty
“I thought I was sick for a while. The only time I got out of bed was to go to work. While there, I was only giving 50%. Meanwhile, WONDERING why I was not getting a raise. I went to the doctor for blood work for Rhuematoid Arthritis, thyroid and even pressure tests and blockage thinking, “I must be sick because I feel awful all the time”. The results all came back normal. I bumped into Seay one day on the FB Feed. I told her what was going on and she was dead honest with me. I was just being LAZY. I did what she told me. I have been drinking her nutrition shake every day since January 1, 2012 have more energy and have lost weight. I feel great and it shows in how I spend my day. I got a raise at work and with that, was able to afford the Ford Escape that I wanted ♥ My relationship has been improving with my husband & I’m no longer laying around inbed all day either. I have my life back” - Kelly L.
"I think you Seay Eyles Stanford are the best representative of what a coach mentor should be and an excellent leader. You've set the bar pretty freaking high. I got some pretty short legs, but I'll do my best to make you proud." - Dr Alan Noble, Internal Medicine Physician | Veterans Hospital
"When I started gaining weight as an adult, I bought into the lies that sugar free was better. I had a 3-4 diet coke a day habit, plus I used Splenda and equal in EVERYTHING. When I joined Weight Watchers, I feel like that was encouraged even more. I ate so much processed diet food and I STRUGGLED SO HARD to lose weight. It was not until I started researching for myself and learning about the benefit of whole foods and clean eating that the weight started really coming off. Not to mention I FEEL so much better! My favorite sweeteners if I need them are stevia, local honey, and coconut sugar!" - Rachel Schweiger
"When is a person considered a great mentor/leader..it is when they are able to impart to others their knowledge and be able to show the way to success instead of simply sharing it.
Seay, you are one amazing mentor. When I have questions and not knowing where to go- you gently yet firmly guide me to where I needed to go. You always seem to know when to say the right words enough to encourage me to keep on going and not giving up. Thank you for seeing the gifts that we have, the strengths that we have and helping us develop that while at the same time encouraging us that our weakness can be developed. For me personally, your belief in me made me see my purpose in this life.
As a leader, you not only lead by example but you encourage all of us that through hard work, dedication, pure good intentions-the vision that we have set before us will soon become a reality and that it is within our reach if we do not stop believing. You set up a high bar and instill in us that we too can achieve it-- we can truly live a life that we have designed but it does take a lot of sweat, perseverance...but thanks to your countless hours of working the business and unselfishness and truly adapting the practice of duplication- we now have the tools to succeed at a rate much faster than when you first got on the business. I love that you are a strong, objective and fearless- you stand by the values and work ethics that has made you successful and you are not afraid to go after the things that you know will make the team successful and you're not afraid to let go of things that may be detrimental to the team (and you have this graceful way of going about it). I love that you have a BIG and generous heart--giving back to others the blessings that your are blessed with.
Thank you that you are a teacher at heart...knowing when to nudge people, knowing when to pick them up, knowing when they're ready when they doubt themselves...I know because I am all those. Thank you for you--- I could go on and on, but at the end of the day-- all I can sum this up to is that I am grateful that God gave me you as my COACH, because of you, my family and I are where we're at now...better than before. Because that's who you are...you leave behind positivity, confidence and truth that we can truly be a difference maker if we dig deep and never give up. I love you and thank you for being such an awesome coach, leader, mentor, friend." - Jen Pinili Taala-Valencia
"Seay inspires leadership, confidence and action by consistently doing what she says she’ll do. She’s present daily, enlightening our team with perspective and nurturing a team culture that is extremely positive and breeds teamwork. Everyone is engaged. Everyone shares. Everyone is eager to grow. As a business partner and friend, I count on her for telling me like she sees it. Her spunky nature doesn't fail me there. What impresses me most is her unending attentiveness and thoughtfulness with each and every member of our team. Confidence is SO critical in business. Everyone that I introduce to her absolutely loves her. Working with Seay for just three months, I’ve gained more confidence in my own ability to grow as entrepreneur than in my previous twenty three years of professional life. She has given me a home and the belief to make it happen." - D. Lewis
"Seay you are Awesome! You care so much about all of us and you give so selflessly. I am so thankful I chose you as my coach!" - Tracy Bryne
"Seay Eyles Stanford you ooze amazingness and leadership without even trying. You are one of the most selfless people I've ever met and you rank #1 in your team's eyes all day long" - A. Kaytes
"As a brand new coach, you really want to know that you are going to get the guidance you need and the expertise that only comes from experience and proven success. I didn't have that when I first started...and then I met Seay Stanford.
Not only did her guidance and extensive knowledge of the business give me solid footing in my own business...but her compassion, understanding and friendship helped to give me confidence when I had none. And she didn't have to take me under her wing and bring me into the fold of her amazing team...but she did because that's just who she is. And I know that it's that kind of person that I want in my life because I know she wants to make true and meaningful differences in peoples lives and success.
Her leadership, coupled with her genuine friendship and mentorship, has given me an ally in this business that I wouldn't trade for the world. Not only does she know exactly what she's doing and exactly how to pass on that information to people in the most effective way possible...she also has passion that is overflowing. She has passion for what she does, the products, her coaches and especially her customers and their success.
I feel more than blessed to have the opportunity to work with Seay professionally and have her as my mentor. I feel even more blessed to truly be able to call her my friend. But I'm not the only one...that's kind of her thing. ;) Friend to all, and kick ass business leader." - S. Chamberlain
"Approximately a year ago I was starting to adjust to my life as an empty nester as my daughter was preparing to “fly the coop” and head off to college. While she was still at home, I was already feeling separation anxieties. This took a huge toll on my mental health, weight and my future. I was not making the best choices when it came to my meals. I was overindulging in my love for wine. I was depressed and before I knew I had gained a whapping 20 lbs. and felt miserable.
In late December I had decided the New Year was around the corner and I was to get my act together. Over the years I’ve tried working out on my own, various weight loss programs, and working with personal trainers here and there. Each time I was successful in losing a little weight, but never quite the results I was looking for. I never had anyone holding my accountable or there supporting me. I decided I needed help. Enter Seay.
Seay was a friend of mine from High School and I had been following her on Social Networking sites for two years. I followed her post daily about her personal transition with her own health, fitness and nutrition.
It is now four months later. I am fitter, mentally stronger and have lost 20 lbs. Seay has worked with me on my motivation, my diet without being on a diet, given me reading material, has been a friend, mentor and coach. She has taught me that weight loss is a journey in so many ways. It is also about your Personal Development, changing the way we think, how we look at situations and how we respond – not react. There have been several times I have wanted to give up and quit, because I was so out of shape and it was hard to push myself to keep moving. She kept me going and not allowed me to quit by holding my accountable and her support daily!
Seay is fitness professional with emphasis on professional. She has academic credentials coupled with Pharmaceutical Sales experience AND Nutrition certified. She knows people and focuses on her customers and her coaches. She monitors progress and help you meet your goals. She is without a doubt at the top of her profession.
I have a ways to go on the Personal Development side of it, but I know that Seay will be with me every step of the way. She wants me to be healthy, fit, and successful in all my endeavors. AND I will be, because I have her support. Seay is simply the best!!" - C. Stephens
"Seay is a passionate and dedicated leader/mentor. She learned how to run her business on her own and she could be selfish about it yet she is willing to “GIVE” freely to those who are dedicated to their business as well. Seay is full of knowledge and I am proud to say I get to learn from the best in the business. I love that she has taken me under her wing to help me be the best I can be. She believes in me and she sees the greatness in me and I love her for that. Just in the last 4 months I have learned so much about myself and how to run my business the right way. She’s given me a couple challenges and I was successful at them because I felt I owed it to her and I couldn’t let her down after all the time and energy she invested in me. Seay, you are an amazing person! Thank you for being tough on me!" - M. Lee
"Seay Eyles Stanford! Can I just say how much I love you? One thing I have always admired about you is how authentic you are. Who you are online is who you really are! You're also one of the most business savvy, SMART, witty, and caring individuals I know. You have a gift for connecting the dots as you mentor others and give advice. When I want to know how it is, you're the one I go to! You're also the one I go to at events if I want to laugh. I try really hard not to compare myself to you or else I'd feel like plain yogurt to your deluxe parfait of awesomeness.
What you're doing in this business is incredible though!! It's so clear to me how respected you are in this community." - B. Linford,
"Seay there's nothing I can say that hasn't been said but I just want you to know YOU completely changed my life!! I was a lost, depressed, overweight soul in a black hole & YOU helped me find my way back to me again!
You never gave up on me no matter how long it took which in turn made me never give up on myself. I will be eternally grateful." - A. Magill
