About

THE INSPIRATION LAB

Inspiration Lab is a working women’s membership group that fosters personal and professional growth and meaningful connections through coaching, networking events, workshops and an annual conference.

Established in Wilmington, North Carolina in September 2015 by Stephanie Lanier, a REALTOR® and owner of Lanier Property Group, a seven-member boutique real estate firm that merged with Intracoastal Realty in February 2020.

The perspective that Stephanie brings to The Inspiration Lab is unique as she is a business owner, wife and mother whose son Oliver is medically fragile and has special needs. Oliver is a cancer survivor, has had major brain surgery, was life-flighted, and has had more hospitalizations and seizures than Stephanie can count.

The idea stemmed from Stephanie’s own experiences as a wife, mother, small business owner and former clinical social worker. She saw a need to help working women identify ways to blend their work, family and passions together, and The Inspiration Lab was born.

The Inspiration Lab began as biannual luncheons hosted by Lanier. In February 2018, the Lab transitioned into a membership community and grew significantly into what it is today — a 260+ member organization with a staff of two and a wide array of live and online programs where women can converse and support each other in a way that is real, transformative and inspiring.

These family and work experiences have inspired Stephanie and she is equally passionate about encouraging weary mothers who are also caregivers, and in helping family-owned businesses grow and flourish.

Membership is open to any woman who wants to live a better life from the inside out.

Membership total as of March 2020 is 320.

The majority of members are located in Wilmington, NC, but a group is being formed in Raleigh in 2020 and the Lab has numerous members who participate remotely.

Basic is $15 per month and includes invitations to the monthly meetups, various events and the private, members-only Facebook group.

The Premium membership is $35 per month and includes quarterly Banner Year Workshops and monthly group mentoring with Stephanie and industry experts.

There are two membership levels – Basic and Premium.

Programming

BANNER YEAR BLUEPRINT

Banner Year Blueprint (BYB) is a quarterly workshop and the Inspiration Lab’s signature program. It is designed to help members set goals, stay on track, and give themselves grace when plans go awry.

Exclusive workbooks and worksheets are created for each session and encourage members to think deeply about where they’ve been and where they’re going.

The Banner Year Blueprint workshops are led by Stephanie Lanier, who carefully curates materials that foster personal and professional growth.

BYB workshops are held in January, April, July, and October each year.

The workshops are focused on goal setting and reflection, and each has a unique theme. This allows for a stand-alone experience, but the program works best when members commit to all four sessions.

SMALL BUSINESS SQUAD

The Small Business Squad is for members who own small businesses.

Members are required to have an EIN to participate.

The group meets 10 to 12 times a year to discuss business-related issues, read relevant books, and provide support for each other.

CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS

Half-day and full-day classes and workshops are held at various times throughout the year on topics such as Self-Care, Public Speaking, Parenting and Leadership.

MEMBER MEETUPS

Networking and socializing for members only at various locales throughout the community. All members are invited and encouraged to attend.

REAL ESTATE ROUNDTABLE

Lanier

Stephanie is the leader of Lanier Property Group, an award-winning real estate team at Intracoastal Realty in Wilmington, North Carolina. She was named one of Wilmington’s Most Intriguing People and voted Best Real Estate Agent by the StarNews. She was also named to StarNews Media’s inaugural “40 Under 40” list in 2019. She is a winner of the North Carolina Association of REALTORS® Rising Star Award and was named to Wilmington’s inaugural Power 100 list in December of 2019. She was also named to an exclusive international list of real estate influencers by Inman News in 2017. Most recently, Stephanie was honored with the Cape Fear CREW Award of Excellence for her dedication to advancing the careers of women in real estate.

 

Stephanie is firmly invested in her hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, named one of the South’s best coastal towns. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Her investment in the local community includes founding The Inspiration Lab, a membership community that provides teaching, tools, and connection for working women. Stephanie is particularly passionate about empowering women who want to grow their real estate businesses and those who own or want to start a small business. In the fall of 2019, Lanier Property Group and The Inspiration Lab teamed up to host a women’s conference in Wilmington with an entire day devoted to real estate and marketing. Hundreds of marketers, real estate agents, and REALTORS® from across the U.S. and Canada attended.

 

Stephanie is known for her ability to provide inspiration and tangible takeaways. She does this whether speaking with her real estate team, her buyers, sellers, and developers, or new audiences. She enjoys writing as a contributor with Inman News, the real estate industry’s leading information source, as well as on the Lanier Property Group and Inspiration Lab blogs. 

 

As a parent to a child with special needs, Stephanie has made a study out of work-life rhythm and self-care. When she isn’t leading her businesses, volunteering with charities close to her heart, or caring for her team and her family, Stephanie speaks to audiences on fostering work-life integration. She also speaks to business owners and entrepreneurs about best practices for content marketing and personal branding.
