Do you remember that commercial where the guy sits down in his leather lounge chair with the remote control to his t.v. in hand, turns on the surround sound, and all of a sudden extreme amounts of power & energy begin to pour out from the speakers? So much so, that it begins to push the man AND his chair backwards towards the wall. Well, THAT is the kind of energy that oozes from Stephanie Alva… a life-changing spirit and passion. Born in West Covina, CA into a single parent household, Stephanie had to grow up very quickly, and was given large amounts of responsibility at an extremely young age. It was her tough upbringing, along with the life lessons she learned from her mother and grandmother that helped her develop a sense of responsibility and an eagerness to help others. Even as a child, Stephanie's personality was magnetic. The kids, and in some cases even their parents, seemed to be drawn to her. She was always able to help the people around her tap into their gifts and talents. In junior high school, Stephanie discovered a passion for both broadcast and written journalism. She became the head Anchorwoman for her school's weekly news program, where she developed different segments that were designed to help students become better able to accomplish their goals. Her innovative ideas won her an award for Excellence in Leadership. Stephanie continued towards her goals throughout high school by participating in Leadership, volleyball, and basketball. She also engaged in community service, and even participated in and won runner up in the Miss T.E.E.N. Los Angeles County be pageant. She became the first person in her family to be accepted into a major university, San Diego State, where she also received a full academic scholarship. Although she was honored, Stephanie didn't feel like college was where she belonged so she turned down the scholarship to pursue her music career. She was quickly asked to become a member of The Gospel Gangstas, one of the forefathers of Christian rap. She was immediately signed and began performing and touring the country, working with artists such as Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, & Crystal Lewis. One of Stephanie's favorite parts of each performance was at the end of the show when they were able to speak to their fans. She had a unique ability to look at the problems and issues that people would talk to her about and present them with a solution, as well as instill in them the idea that they were enough, just as they were, and that they were capable of greatness. She quickly became a fan favorite. It was then that she knew that her purpose was to help and inspire others. After touring with the group for close to 2 years, Stephanie decided to leave the music business and begin pursuing her vision of touching others lives. As it does, life started to happen, and she ended up getting a 9 to 5 job and her dreams were put on the back burner. Her Grandmother had a series of health issues and it became imperative that Stephanie become her primary caregiver. She cared for the woman who helped raise her until she passed away, January 17, 2002. This event shook Stephanie to her very core. Her Grandmother was like her mother. She was the one person whom Stephanie had always depended on for guidance. On her deathbed, Stephanie made her Grandma two promises: 1) To finish losing the excess weight that she had gained and 2.) To become what she was born to be. With an unquenchable flame in her spirit, Stephanie began to search for how to live her purpose.

A series of inexplicable events began to occur in Stephanie's life that always seemed to place her in the right place, at the exact right time. She began writing for several blogs, including a VH1 spinoff blog where she had the opportunity to interview cast members from various reality television shows. She also hosted her own BlogTalk Radio Show, "The L-Down", which quickly became one of Blog Talks top rated shows. This is where she met Solomon Heyman AKA "Mr. Wise". She helped him to win a spot on VH1’s hit reality show, "I Love New York 2”, and he asked her to become his Personal Manager. Within weeks, Stephanie had organized his company, (Wise Owl Music), started him a clothing line, secured interviews and appearances, and got several meetings with major recording labels. She quickly began to pick up other clients once word spread about her ability to make something happen out of nothing. She has worked with David Otunga AKA Punk (VH1’s I Love New York 2), Misfit Dior (VH1’s The White Rapper Show), Persia (VH1’s The White Rapper Show & Miss Rap Supreme), Byata (VH1’s Miss Rap Supreme), Big Regg (MTV's Jackass & The Dr. Steve-O Show), Cowin Mills (2008 Olympian, Beijing) just to name a few. Although Stephanie was successful as a Personal Manager, she knew that there was something more she should be doing. And then, tragedy struck. She lost her house and was forced into homelessness. Nobody knew that she was showing up on the red carpet with her beaming smile and when it was over, she was sleeping in her car on the streets. In an effort to try to change her situation, she began learning about the power of positive thinking, positive affirmations, visualization, and meditation. She started to grow spiritually and unfailingly stuck to the belief that if she did her part, the Universe would open up and begin to work with her. Being true to her word, Stephanie kept her promise to her Grandmother by losing the excess weight she had gained. To date, she has lost 110lbs and is a brand new woman, inside and out! Her faith paid off and she got back up on her feet and was lead to do a 7 Day Mental & Spiritual Cleanse. During the 7 day retreat, Stephanie received the idea to utilize all of her talents and become a Life Coach and Motivational Speaker. !

In December, 2009, she founded My Life Keys, LLC and like magic, all of the pieces of the puzzle began to fall into place. Through a series of miraculous events, she met Tavaghn "Montster" Monts, (Vice-President, My Life Keys,) and Madeline Smith, (COO, My Life Keys,) and together, they began building the company up piece by piece. She also started reaching out to people via Twitter, and giving them the hope that she herself once needed in order to live. Every day, you can find Stephanie motivating the masses on Twitter and inspiring us all to live our best lives and to discover and live in our purpose. She is also currently recording several positive affirmation CD's, writing Positive Affirmation books, as well as working on her first novel. Believing that if we build our children up from the beginning, they will accomplish everything they put their hands to do, she also started a non-profit organization called My Life Keys Mentoring Program where she plans to offer one-on-one mentoring, Life Coaching for kids & teens, and a summer camp where kids ages 5-18 can come to be inspired to greatness!! Meeting Stephanie is an experience. It's not really something that you can describe with words. She is a passionate creator; an innovative, fiery woman with an energy that can only be described as contagious. She has this uncanny ability, no matter how bad your situation may be, to convince you that it is ALL working together for your higher good and that if you can just look beyond the pain of it all, there is a beautiful rainbow just waiting for you to admire and acknowledge it. She will always give you more than anything you can imagine or anticipate. She is predictably unpredictable. Once you have been in her presence, you will never be the same… THAT, we guarantee!

"It has been a pleasure getting knowledgeable advice from Montsterr. I was really going through a trying time in my relationship that ranged from infidelity to problems with family. The advice was phenomonal and pointed me in the right direction. I enjoy reading his topics covered durin "Monster After Dark". Its amazing how he touches lives in so many different ways. It is a true blessing to have someone out there listening with a clear mind."

"I feel compelled to tell everyone I can about such a special woman such as Stephanie. She appeared in my life when I really needed encouragement! I don't think I knew that I needed the extra push until I received it. She's so determined, honest, compassionate, and warm. .. What I like to call a kindred Spirit to me. In just the short time I have know her, and even from afar, I see the resilience! Workouts twice a day?! Making time to give undivided attention to others, and yet keeps time for herself. Remarkable! She is a true blessing! Her great deeds are being rewarded 10 fold. Gods speed to you Queen. May you always be blessed and be a blessing to others as you have been to me." -

"Monts has always been a positive person for as long as I can remember. Ever since high school when we used to dance in the hallways at Ribault he always been a good friend of me, my brother, and my family. It's great to see Montster really showcase his talents to the world and at the same time remain extremely humble. He is destined for greatness and y'all can Montster that!!!!"

"I was introduced to Stephanie Alva about 4 years ago by my wife, Angelina. From the moment I shook her hand I knew that I had just met someone that would enrich my life in a most positive way. Stephanie is a genuine person. I don't think that I've ever met anyone who, even when they were down, went out of their way to let you know that she knew that a brighter day was ahead. You can't help but to elevate your disposition when she's around. What a joy and honor it is to call her a friend. I've been a witness to some of the trials thrown her way and not once have I seen her waiver from her unshakable belief that God truly has her back. I have no doubt that the lives that she has touched and the paths that she has crossed have benefited from her strong belief and her ability to articulate. Someone once said, "Love and Happiness are perfumes that you can't sprinkle on others without getting a few drops on yourself". Stephanie Alva absolutely pours Love and Happiness.

"I would love to give a testimony of how Montster has motivated me. One day I was going through some personal turmoil and wanted something to take my mind off of what I was going through. I got the invitation to go to a Ustream broadcast presented by Montster, and I thought that it was going to be simple entertainment. During the discussion on the various topics, Montster took the spin on talking about life and how the things in life are attainable. He talked about how he is thankful to God for taking care of him even though he was doing something that was not smart. (e.g. driving to work with barely any gas in the car). This moment of transparency ministered to me in my situation and told me to look for the bright side of any situation that I am going through. I have been following Montster on Twitter ever since and he has helped me laugh and think so many times. Thank you Montster for keeing a tamborine player motivated."

"It's difficult to put into words my feelings about Stephanie Alva and the impact she's had on my life. She's the ultimate example of: "please take my advice because I've been there." I remember her struggles and obstacles and how they affected her life. Now that I observe her take complete control of her life and her decisions, all I have to say is: Watch out world!!! Though her methods are unconventional, her tenacity and her ability to adapt are very apparent. Charisma and likeability are understatements, and she has the uncanny ability to find humor in everything! I love where she's been, who she is and what she will become."

"Tavaghn "Montster" Monts: Spend a few minutes conversing with him, and you will quickly realize that there is a lot of thought and maturity in his words. When he talks, people listen, and everyone is sure to end the conversation taking away something that will make a difference in their thoughts, actions, day, week and life. Whether in person or on Twitter, he has a knack for making people relax, listen and talk to him freely. It's not because he makes funny jokes or gives the latest and greatest scoop on what's hot or not. It's simply because he gives you the motivation you need to feed your ambition. For me, Montster's tweets always seem to come at the right time. I would be having a frustrating day at work and open up my timeline to read him telling his followers that as bad as it seems, someone else would give anything to be in our place. I could be having a hard time with my mate and read that I shouldn't give up without a fight. I would run into brick wall after brick wall and he would say that obstacles are opportunities. I struggled with the decision for a while to leave a job that was comfortable but inhibited my advancement in life. I read Monts' Motivate Your Motivation telling me the differences between successful people and people who settled, and decided to make that plunge. I tend to sit back and read more than participate in the conversations, and over the last few months he's helped me through some tough times and helped me make some difficult but much needed decisions. Thanks to him giving me lots of motivation, I've been able to step out of what is comfortable and into what is unfamiliar, but what I truly want. As a single mother with 2 sons, one who has special needs, I've had a few mornings when I felt like putting one foot in front of another was like climbing a mountain. I'd read or remember some of his Motivate Your Motivations, say a prayer and keep it moving! I am so excited to be a part of his growth and to watch him turn into something bigger than he even dreams about! Montster has motivated me in more ways than he will ever realize! I have often thanked God for using him to bless so many! Keep doing it Tavaghn!"

"There is so much I can say about how Stephanie has allowed her light to shine, but for the sake of time I am going to keep this short and sweet. Although there has not been a lot of interaction between Stephanie and I, the most important of all is the consistency in her personality. She is always smiling and full of encouraging words, most definitely does she keep the "food for thought" on deck! I am appreciative for her smiling face as it was wonderful to see and made me realize that things are not as bad as they may seem. I am excited to see her allowing God to use her to keep that smile going and passing along the joys of life in those less fortunate. Hands down Stephanie Alva is a delight in life!!! May God continue to bless her and everything she is involved with!"
