Sha yearned for more than what her life had become
Sha sparks was a hairstylist for 29 years. As a business owner, she enjoyed the freedom but also understood the challenges that come with relying on yourself to create a paycheck.
A few years ago Sha got the itch to see what else was beyond the horizon. She started trying new things to expand her comfort zone. She began to take improv classes and attended a startup weekend. Rather than having a predetermined agenda, Sha wanted to see what was out there. What she discovered was that by stepping out of her comfort zone she began peeling back the layers of herself.
Stepping out of her comfort zone led to shifts in every aspect of her life
This new way of thinking and living changed the way she spoke to her dad, herself, and the people around her. She was finally able to show people how she wanted to be spoken to and how she wanted to be loved.
Listen in to hear the impactful story of how Sha’s transformation led to a fundamental shift in the relationship that she had with her father. Her story will warm you and maybe even get you to rethink the way you communicate with others.
Now Sha leads a life full of intention
Sha recently took the brave step to step away and take a year to strike out on her own and live purposefully. As a hair stylist, Sha discovered that she has a knack for listening to people and helping them work through their problems. This skill led her to become a Certified Fearless Living Coach so that she could help others find their way during transitional periods.
Sha has discovered that it takes self-awareness to overcome fear and open oneself up to the realm of possibility. Taking fearless action doesn’t lead to passing or failing, it simply leads to learning opportunities. With a growth mindset, anything is possible.
To get to the next level of any outcome it is important to go out and do, not simply sit back and think. Make a decision and act so that you can learn, iterate, and move forward. All action starts with one step so go out there and take it.
