Singer/Songwriter, Entrepreneur, and Fitness Guru, and Devoted Mother, Stacey Jackson proves she can juggle it all

Stacey Jackson continues to prove to the world that she can do it all. As a singer/songwriter, entrepreneur, and fitness guru, Jackson鈥檚 favorite job is being a mother to her four children. Stacey鈥檚 story is an incredibly unique one as she launched her music career and shot to fame at the age of 40. Stacey is a firm believer in never giving up and following your dreams. She continues to instill this powerful message in her now grown children especially to her 14 year old daughter.

Stacey鈥檚 journey to where she thrives today was not an easy path. After graduating from college, Stacey worked at Lifetime Television in the publicity department in New York City. In the evenings, she sang in the Motown band, Fuzzy Dice. After her second child arrived, Stacey shifted gears and started her own public relations company enabling her to have a more flexible schedule, and spend more time with her growing children. Stacey was at a crossroads when she moved to London and had the opportunity to be a US publicist based in London or pursue her dream to create music. She decided to go with the latter because she knew deep down that music was her real passion. 鈥淚 didn鈥檛 want to be 80 and look back at my life and think 鈥業 could have done that鈥 emphasizes Jackson.

SSENSE GLOBAL

Jackson admits that she was a bit insecure starting off in the music industry, an industry that tends to favor newbies who are typically younger. But what powered her was that she was able to use her previous life experiences in the entrepreneurial and PR world to propel her music career. After having two more kids, she got her first ever music gig in London at Cafe de Paris. Jackson knew this was her chance to record an album and fulfill her lifelong dream of recording music. After contacting a bandmate, she created an album for a music charity that would ultimately change her life forever.

Stacey was able to work with hundreds of talented kids from all over the UK to raise funds for the charity while also recording covers for her album. Jackson reminses, 鈥淎nd then one DJ remixed one of the tracks off this charity record and suddenly I鈥檓 sitting between Lady Gaga and the Scissor Sisters on the dance charts. I was literally catapulted in the dance music industry– a genre of music I grew up listening to and teaching fitness classes to, back in the 1990s鈥. Following the success of her debut single, Stacey went on to release 4 albums including a single with the iconic Snoop Dogg. She has also gone on to collaborate with Papa Levi and other well-known dance music producers and remixers.

 

Stacey鈥檚 dream to pursue a career in music was finally fulfilled as she had the opportunity to tour the world and take the stage at Pride and perform at major stadiums in her trademark high heels and hotpants. Internationally recognized for her music, Stacey decided to pursue another project she had always dreamed of fulfilling. As someone who started dancing at the age of 13, Stacey has always loved helping others realize their personal fitness goals and sharing her passions for health and fitness.

Constantly in search of the perfect sports top that was easy to get in and out of and offered full coverage, Stacey knew what she had to do. With no luck finding the perfect one, Stacey decided to jump on this opportunity and create one herself. Initially selling her StaeFit tops on a UK home shopping channel, the tops have now expanded to Staefit.com and Amazon.co.uk. At the age of 48, Stacey has also designed leggings to compliment the StaeFit tops and an 鈥榓t home鈥 exercise video with the goal to encourage women to be the best possible version of themselves.

With a huge social media following and many things to juggle, Stacey鈥檚 key advice for others is 鈥淪upport, support, support! I prioritise my family and have never missed a school play, a parents鈥 night, a birthday or any major milestone鈥. Especially during the pandemic and lockdown, Stacey has cited it was an adjustment getting used to her whole family living under the same roof.

Luckily, she has a recording studio in her attic and she was able to spend some alone time, working on her debut musical book titled 鈥淗ow Snoop Dogg Made Me A Better Mom鈥. Jackson co-wrote the book with friend and former journalist for The Times, Ruth Elkins. 鈥淚t鈥檚 the first complete book of a trilogy that鈥檚 in development鈥 explained Jackson. Stacey also has a number of projects set for release in 2021 and the near future including a cameo appearance in the film 鈥淩eboot Camp鈥, her remastered record 鈥淟ive It Up :Rebooted.”

With many exciting new projects on her plate, Stacey Jackson is proof that no matter how old you are, it is never too late to pursue your dreams.
