Taking time for oneself every day, some might call that selfish. We say ​own it!

This is your Personal Playbook for your mindset. Your tool kit to cope and ​grow. It’s unique to you. It gets you back to the best of You. Yes, it’s a good ​thing to take care of yourself. You’ll bring more of what you cherish and ​value to the world and those around you.



Individuals and companies are prioritizing wellness, personal development, and mental health.

Companies have extensive training meetings for their employees, speakers at kick off events, study groups, and ​monthly meetings so everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.

But the challenge is—

How do you make it stick?

How do you remember the strategies that serve you well when you’re having a challenging day, month, or year?

This is precisely the WHY behind the Playbook approach.

About Us

SELF!SH was born out of the collective desire of individuals coming together to make a meaningful ​impact, all while juggling their full-time careers. Each member of this dedicated team, joined SELF!SH ​as a 'passion project', investing their time and energy to lend their expertise and help bring SELF!SH ​to life.

In 2018, actress Stephanie Szostak developed her Playbook as a tool to prevent valuable insights and ​guidance from getting lost or forgotten. Her personal Playbook not only consolidated and integrated ​knowledge but also helped boost her self-esteem in a career (acting) that surely does wonders for ​one’s confidence (not!).

In 2021, a phone call between Give an Hour and Stephanie laid the foundation for an extraordinary ​vision. The idea of a webinar series sparked during that conversation, later leading to the SELF!SH ​workbook, and the SELF!SH app. Give an Hour consultant, Nickie Silverstein, has played and ​continues to play a pivotal role in strategizing, coordinating collaborations, and outreach efforts.

In 2022, Stephanie connected with tech expert Kowsheek Mahmood, who enthusiastically joined ​forces after hearing the vision for the app. The concept deeply resonated with Kowsheek's mission to ​use technology to help people in their efforts to heal from trauma.

Finally in 2023, the vision came to fruition when Pam Long and John Nunziato of Little Big Brands ​joined the project. With their magic touch in naming, designing, and branding they brought the missing ​piece that tied it all together.......

"I hope your playbook

empowers you on a lifelong journey of

discovery, learning, and growth."
