Well hey there...you made it! Welcome to my polka dotted slice of life. Slap on some colorful new glasses and let's get this party started....
Here are the party non-rules:
What’s the party for?
I want to help as many people as I can to re-spark their souls and create lives and businesses that they love instead of feeling dead and numb inside. While I know that sound a bit harsh, once you can admit you’re in THAT place….you can start climbing up to a better one, right?
It doesn’t matter if you feel as though you are too young or old to make a change. It doesn’t matter if you think you are playing by the rules you are SUPPOSED to be playing, living the life you were TOLD is good & right...if it doesn’t feel it every day when you pop open those baby blue, brown, green or whatever eyes, then that’s where I come in.
Let’s chase that feeling together. I believe authenticity, truth telling and vulnerability, especially the messy kind is the key to healing the past and diving into a new Technicolor future. I value honesty, humor, a lot of cheerleading and gentle mirroring can help someone open up to new things and admit what they’ve always dreamed of in order to go make it happen.
Who’s coming to the party?
(we all ask that one before we venture out, let's be honest)
You may be asking yourself, ok yes she is talking my language but how can she know where I am or get me out of here?
Hiya, I'm Shari, a free rebel spirit, soul explorer, transformational coach & business sparkle maker with a passion for living life as colorfully as possible.
Well, listen up...I knowwww where you are. I lived there, I saw the gray, I dreamed of more and didn’t believe I had a chance at anything different. Once we get comfy with a cup of tea (or flask of vodka..no judgements!), we will dive into as much of the nitty gritty as you need and want to but suffice it to say that a numb, hurt, bored and scared mom of two in a bad marriage caught in a Stepford life is where I began.
So now you’re thinking- okay, so she then just woke up one day and knew what to do to change.
All I knew was I couldn’t live like that anymore but I saw nothing in front of me. But I chose to start to move, walk, skip and dream. Even when I had no idea where I was going or what I could change my start was I don’t want to die in this place. I danced, I found yoga, I painted, I journal-ed, I cried, I avoided, I went high and low and everything in between. When I fell, I kept getting up. Until I could FEEL again and remember who I was underneath all I had become.
That journey was the hardest, lowest and darkest journey a peppy little sparkplug could go on. And frankly, I wouldn’t give back a day because I made it to here (ok maybe a couple of doozy days but you get my point). But doing it on my own and feeling lost and invisible was not the most ideal way to go. And now I know that.If only at that time I would've had a cheerleader, a confidante, a non-judgmental person who I could even just scream to without the annoying fix it answers, my road would have been shorter and brighter.
And that is exactly what I offer to you.
An outloud colorful existence with a cheerleader & partner in crime.
Who could turn that away?? Whether you have read this page over and over and scurried back to Facebook to make it go away or you are ready to roll up your sleeves and dive in, I am here. I SEE you, I GET you and I KNOW you.
And now to the after party!
Come hop over to the podcast on iTunes and Stitcher! join the conversations in my new podcast, The Creative Soul Lab!
The Creative Soul Lab is a variety show of Shari musings and interviews with entrepreneurs, thought leaders and everyday success rockstars pulling the curtain back on how their creative spark, passion and individuality fuels the success and fulfillment in life and business.
If you are ready to get started on your new sparkly road, I am waiting for ya over here at my work with me page in a variety of ways. Let’s do this!
(Cue Beyonce...to the left, to the left..CLICK!)
While we are on the topic of different strokes for different folks, you may want to know how and IF I know what I’m doing. So to the technical stuff....drumroll pleaseeeeee!
As a lifelong learner, I have studied social work, art therapy, and completed a year long life coach training in Mentor Masterclass with Jeannine Yoder. I am also a certified yoga teacher and a multimedia artiste’ who works with decoupage, mosaics and paint, interior design as well as a makeup artist. (Yes I decorate anything that stands still-ish.)
So there’s my official tool box but the real way I know how to help is because I come to the table (or sofa) with an open heart, an open mind and a love of helping souls find their way.
