Are you sick and tired of being held back by the chains of your past? Of others dictating your life … telling you what to say, how to act, and even how to feel?

Are you searching for a way to silence the inner critic, breakthrough limiting beliefs, and come "home" to your true, authentic self? A way to find your voice and speak your truth? A way to laugh, love, and play again?

Are you ready to step into a future you design? 

If you're looking for actionable tools and strategies to take back your power and create a life you love, then you're in the right place!

I've done it again and again.
And so have my guests.

I’m Ellie Shefi. I am a survivor of rape and domestic abuse. I’ve been homeless, lived in my car, and eaten the food restaurants were throwing away at the end of the night. I'm a cancer survivor and medical miracle who has been defying the doctors' death deadlines for decades. I’ve endured countless medical surgeries—often with little hope of survival. At my breaking point, I even begged God to just let me die. (Now that is hitting rock bottom!)

Yet, today, I am a limitless thriver. I am a successful attorney, entrepreneur, #1 international best-selling and award-winning author, sought-after international speaker, strategist, media host, publisher, philanthropist, mentor, coach, and consultant. I have mastered turning fear into fuel, and pain into purpose, and now I am blessed to live joyful life I love.

You see … Like so many of us, I, too, have scars—emotional, mental, and physical. But throughout my journey, I have learned that I am not my scars! I have healed and moved beyond the scars and the wounds and burdens that caused them. I have cast off the chains of the past and set myself free. I no longer allow my scars to hold me back…to deny me my personal path toward a life of authenticity and abundance.

I'm here to help you do the same.

If you’re sick and tired of being defined by events, circumstances, and beliefs—if you’re longing to shed past pain and rise beyond your adversities—if you’re looking for post-traumatic growth—then this podcast, You Are Not Your Scars, is for you!

On this podcast, my guests and I show you how to shed your scars, claim your internal freedom, and create a life you love. We equip you with the tools and strategies you need to find your voice, stand in your power, and become the architect of your life. We guide you in charting a new course for your journey, help you build a resilient mind, and help you develop your unique, authentic, and aligned soul signature that no one can imitate or destroy.

Joining me every episode are masters of resiliency, mindset, personal development, overcoming trauma, and more! They are here to offer you the tools, resources, and strategies you need to break free from the past, claim your future, and create a life you love.

No matter how deep your wounds are, you are resilient. You are unbreakable. And you are unstoppable. You have control over your life!

Live life on your terms today.
While you may have been forged from the fire, you are free by design.

Remember: You Are Not Your Scars!
