Introducing Boss Makers Presenter: ShaRonda Sammons

Sometimes your spirit just connects to another person. There’s something about them that you feel comfortable with. Life happens. You move on, but there will always be a special connection. That’s how I feel about Boss Makers presenter, ShaRonda Sammons. It’s hard to believe that I’ve known ShaRonda for almost 20 years, but I did the math twice and it’s not changing.

All around the city that I grew up in (Akron, OH) young adults are making life-changing decisions that are ending lives. Children are dying in the streets daily! It’s easy to feel hopeless. It makes sense to be afraid. I can understand being angry, but we raised them. We made them. We are their community. So what can we do?

6 Dimensions of Wellness

March 1st marked the launch of my new initiative, the Selfishly Happy Academy. The goal of the program is to unite women in the spirit of community to encourage, educate and empower us to live and excel in our own happiness. I am a career coach.
