What factors inspired you to Inspiring Lives International? Could you share with us some of the notable highlights from your tenure at the company?
I began as a tenured Professor at RMU after a successful career as a teacher. I went on to lead my own company after a predestined connection with a woman with an inspiring story. From there I went on to interview women leaders from around the world on how they found inspiration, empowerment, and balance through my television show ‘Inspiring Lives with Dr. Shellie’, Empowering Women Radio, and my 13 books.
Speaking of notable achievements, I have been recognized with various awards—from “Entrepreneur of the Year” to “Best Business Woman”. I also had the honor of speaking at prestigious universities such as the University of Oxford and Harvard University as well as on stages such as Passions to Profits in Hollywood and United Way for Women. I take the utmost pride in running a company and the non-profit ‘The Global Sisterhood’ simultaneously while maintaining my family’s work-life balance with my two children.
