The owner of Ideas Influence, Steffanie Barger (that's me) is also a writer, probably before having the ability to pick up a pen. Scribbling dreams on paper with crayons and crying when unable to figure out how to open two puzzle shops in the backyard at the same time...


I live and love and play with words, pictures, thoughts, ideas and create (what I feel is) magic and bring that inner love and purpose into all of my work, for anyone. Building mysteries and puzzles and ciphers and reading any and everything helps me be creative with you as well. If you need advice on a project, social media, a brochure, magazine article or if you would like to be part of Happy Insides as we reopen the world... call, email, text 24/7.

"If you want to be happy, be." Leo Tolstoy

"It is everlasting and will never be. It will always and on no occasion, be that way, not for only a moment." Steffanie

a writer of no words

"I once wrote a poem. I lost it. Wrote it again, better. Decided to start writing the same thought from scratch over and over every day until all the voices in my head had their way. "

They all came to the same conclusion one day.



"influence the world with your ideas and watch the world inspire you."

A traveler with no trail

his feet shall dance without knowing

the sun is but directly overhead

as he waits for the rain. 


that which hurts you

cannot heal you.

that which heals you

will not purposely

hurt you.

that which you allow,

is your will.
