Meet Sheila

 Sheila Kennedy headshotBelieving everyone has a story to tell, Sheila Kennedy supports others as they write their wisdom, speak their stories and impact the world with what they have been called to share.  Sheila serves best by leading those she is blessed to know through the minefield of vulnerability traveled when sharing hard-won wisdom with others.

A two-time solo author, a co-author of a best-selling memoir of Honorable Joseph D. Valentino and an award winning anthology, keynote speaker, publisher, and a mentor to self publishing authors, Sheila opens the doors of opportunity for authors and speakers to be seen, heard and hired.  Aside from her daughter, her greatest joy in life is connecting authors with the resources and audience they need to succeed.

Sheila knows a thing or two about facing challenges.  She built a platform constructed from abuse, the strain of perfectionism and bound it all together with victimhood.  All that she built crumbled as her divorce, financial instability, single parenthood and a crisis of confidence were more than could be supported.  As Sheila stood in the rubble, rather than choosing to build a fortress to protect her from the outside, she would use the rubble to build a bridge to a better life.  Sheila chose to be a victor with vision, using the lessons learned from mistakes and failures as steps to higher ground, with a view that she continues to enjoy today.

A natural teacher, Sheila shares the skills and strategies needed to overcome adversity and thrive.  She creates a container for others to explore who they are, what they have learned, and how they show up to serve the world. A self proclaimed, Advocate for Action, Bullhorn for Bravery, Promoter of POWER, Writer of Wisdom, and Marketer of Moxie, Sheila is a fireball who passion is helping others share their stories.

“As a Direct Sales Director, I find that I spend the majority of my time leading, training and encouraging my downline and I don’t leave enough time and energy to do the same for myself. This training reminded me of how important that is and also gave me some wonderful ideas for accomplishing that and it could do the same for you – I highly recommend Sheila Kennedy’s training for all!
