    Darlene Hawley: Knowing Your Worth

    Darlene Hawley: Knowing Your Worth

    In this episode, Sherley speaks with Personal Branding and Online Business Coach, Darlene Hawley. As a teen mom, Darlene had to grow up very quickly. Things were steady for awhile but steady does not equal fulfilled. Then, losing her mother, catapulted Darlene in a new direction. She knew that the imbalance of retail management and motherhood had been unhealthy for awhile. But it wasn’t until the biggest loss of her life that she made the tough decision to recalibrate and step into entrepreneurship. Once she stepped into this space, there was a battle to stand her ground in a society where people often look down on young entrepreneurs. It certainly wasn’t easy. Darlene, being a naturally helpful individual, continued to use her strengths helping other people succeed despite the doubts. If you are in need of that push to take a leap or keep going if you have already made a leap of faith, this is the episode for you.

    Kim Boudreau Smith: Talks Smart Entrepreneurship

    Kim Boudreau Smith: Talks Smart Entrepreneurship

    In this episode, Sherley is in conversation with Leadership, Communication, and Business Coach, Kim Boudreau Smith.
    After falling asleep while driving at an intersection, Kim knew she needed to make a change. A life change. Running on autopilot, she was a bit lost, shall we say. From working in the fitness world to working in the corporate space, Kim had to figure out some things. That included figuring out what she needed for herself instead of leaning on what society told her she needed to be. It was a tough lesson to learn but for her, it was a life-saving one. Stepping into entrepreneurship is not easy. Evaluating the why of it all is even more difficult when you are being honest with yourself. Kim walks us through her journey as an entrepreneur, acknowledging the privilege that allowed her to do so and the lessons she learned with that space to grow.

    Sarah Tuberty: Stop Hiding Yourself

    Sarah Tuberty: Stop Hiding Yourself

    In this episode, Sherley speaks to Flight Attendant Sarah who has a Doctorate in clinical occupational therapy. It’s quite fascinating learning about the different roles of an occupational therapist, especially as Sarah uses her experience as an accessibility coordinator. And that’s just the beginning! Next, Sarah shares anecdotes of disability advocacy, the importance of eliminating inspiration porn and offensive, insensitive language to those with disabilities, as well as mindful communication and messaging to children regarding disability. There is so much to learn and appreciate here in this episode, so be sure to share it with all of those who are looking to expand their compassionate muscles. Everyone has their own journey when it comes to self confidence and self-acceptance. This is your reminder that you are enough just as you are and other people’s ignorance and discrimination does not take away from that.

Pure Perfection!

It honestly doesn't get much better than this! Listening to Sherley speak is invigorating . She is beyond knowledgeable on the topics she discusses and her authenticity shines through in her podcast. There are so many podcasts out there that are over the top or that consist simply of people looking for attention with no real substance behind what they're doing, but Sherley is different. If you want someone who is REAL and who prides herself on giving her audience only the best listening experience, tune in to Femme Parler!
