This week on the show we have Sheri Fink. She’s an inspirational speaker and writer I met at Los Angeles Comic Con, and a fantastic interview.
Don’t take my word for it though. Here is her massive bio straight from www.sherifink.com.

In the words of Jack Canfield, co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul and New York Times Best-selling author of The Success Principles, “The Whimsical World of Sheri Fink children’s brand is an excellent resource for award-winning and quality children’s books that encourage actions of tolerance, acceptance, and, perhaps the hardest lesson to be learned of all, staying true to the core of one’s self.”

Sheri and her books have been featured in hundreds of articles, programs, websites, and shows, including on NBC’s The 10!

In addition, she is a founding member of the Evolutionary Business Council, an international, invitation-only council of speakers and influencers dedicated to teaching the principles of success in order to make the world a better place, and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
Sheri’s newest adventure is a contemporary romance. She was inspired to write Cake in Bed, her debut novel, to empower women to be their authentic selves and to not settle for less than they deserve in life or in love, because everyone deserves to have their cake and eat it too … preferably in bed!
I didn’t know what to think of Sheri when I met her at Los Angeles Comic-con, clad in a Harley Quinn outfit, but she immediately impressed me. The fact that she friended me on Facebook before I could add her was even a better indication of her legitimacy, but then I saw her website and it blew me away.
I loved talked to Sheri because she perfectly balanced the whimsy and inspiration that pumps you up with the tactical and practical information that can help get you to the next level. The thing that really resonated with me from our conversation was the idea of becoming a magnet for the right people.
Right now Wannabe Press and this show are working very hard to push our message to as many people as possible, but her message was to create a brand where the right people find you. It’s not easy to do, but I’ve been working very hard over the past year to magnetize ourselves to the right people, so Sheri’s message really hit home.
