Joshua B Lee - President, Co-Founder
I’m looking to improve the world through expert online education programs. I do this by helping experts, executives and entrepreneurs build their authority, Google position and overcome technology hurdles.
You may have seen my work on – Forbes, Fox Business, CNN, Huffington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, Inc. Magazine, Yahoo Finance, USA Today, Noobpreneur, Techli, The Verge, Small Biz Technology, Small Business Trends, Smart Blogs, ReadWrite
I founded and act as President of the advertising agency LF Media, inc. Over the last decade brands under this corporation include:
• Austin Advertising Alliance
Collectively we serve over 100 BILLION online impressions each month.
I’m always looking for the next adventure.
The life of an entrepreneur includes multiple activities. I sit on many Advisory Boards, co-founded Mega Media Buzz, Hidden Profit Path and help as a life/business coach. I helped my wife start Cal-Tex Swim Co, a swimming school to extend her talents.
A local passion project I started is Monstapreneurs. This is a networking group started in Austin for fellow entrepreneurs and C-level executives. We connect monthly to help "Relax, Reset, and Refocus" through epic experiences. These shared experiences bring flow to their lives and keep their drive to excel every day.
MySearchNetwork.com is the newest project I’m working on. I feel it’ll change the way people search and connect online because, "A million people searching together is more powerful than one searching alone"

Stephanie Miller - President East Coast Region
"I take great pride in recognizing 'Stand Out Authorities' who make a profound difference," said Miller. "The benefit of media attention is that it amplifies good deeds and can elevate your authority status, resulting in higher demand for your products and services."
For years, Miller traveled regularly as an undercover investigator. She provided brick and mortar retail chains detailed reports on how to increase sales, retain more customers, reduce losses and improve overall customer experience. To be close to family, she started a national finance company with a partner. They helped business owners obtain capital equipment. Its success resulted in the company being purchased by a financial institution after thirteen years. Miller now brings her knowledge and experience to the Stand Out Authority team.
'The Authority Mindset,' an Amazon #1 bestseller in multiple categories, followed another best-selling book Miller co-authored, 'Small Business Marketing Roadmaps.' She has been described by marketing strategist Jack Mize as "Thinking outside the box," and "She made it to the other side and came back with a map for the rest of us."
Miller has been quoted in the media, including The Wall Street Journal, for her work as the creative force and lead designer for I.C.E. KEYTAGS.
Her work has been syndicated to affiliates of ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX, garnering media attention for her clients, which include celebrities, authors and musicians. For the inventor of I.C.E. KEYTAGS, this has also meant: Radio guest spots and television appearances, including the pilot episode of GamePlan with Kevin Harrington, one of the original Sharks from Shark Tank.
Miller supports child abuse awareness by donating her time to promote events for Battle 4 Children Charities. Although she still has the Boston accent of her native Massachusetts roots, she now enjoys life in Down East Maine with her husband, C. Frederick Miller, D.V.M. and their menagerie of animals. In her spare time, you'll find her in a kayak, tending the vegetable and woodland gardens, or creating chaos in the kitchen.
