What if the hard things you’ve experienced in life lead to unique opportunities to be able to help others? Perhaps the things you’ve walked through and the lessons you’ve learned along the way are exactly what someone else needs to hear today. In healing and moving forward, you’re able to extend a hand up to the person who is in the place you used to be.

If this resonates with you, you won’t want to miss my conversation with my friend, coach, and podcaster, Shā Sparks. 

Growing up with a father who was unwillfully drafted in the Army to serve time in Korea, Shā inherited her father’s “I don’t have a choice” mindset. Later she realized she did have a choice and overcame abuse, addiction, depression, anger, low self-worth, being a bully and being bullied. Today, she has proactively changed that fear-based phrase “I don’t have a choice” into determination, inspiring others to make fearless choices. She guides leaders to re-ignite their passion into a more aligned purpose and transform it into increased profit. She knows that if she can take her own traumatic experiences and transform them into a treasure, then so can you!

She is the CEO (Chief Excitement Officer) of Sparks of Fire International, a Certified Fearless Living Coach and Trainer, host of The Power of Investing in People podcast, host of the “Hey Shā, What Do I Say?” Facebook Live show, author of “How to Get Your Voice Back”, and Co-Founder of #FIRESTARTERS Book Project.

Shā shares her story of moving past difficult family relationships and an abusive relationship to find healing, her journey of discovering her calling to work with active military and veterans, and what she’s learned about herself and her purpose along the way.

Some additional highlights you’ll want to hear include:

  • The benefits of journaling and why guided journals can be helpful
  • The importance of prioritizing family relationships
  • How one conversation changed the direction of her work and life

Please join me for this conversation and let’s reflect together on how the challenges and hard times we’ve faced may have prepared us to be exactly what someone is needing today to move forward in their own journey.
