After almost 21 years as the executive producer of the Oprah Winfrey Show and co-president of Harpo Studios and the Oprah Winfrey Network, Sheri Salata realized that she had created the career of her dreams, but didn’t have the life of her dreams. This inspired Sheri to forge a new path for herself and redefine ‘the middle of life’ to create the dream life she wanted for herself.
Sheri’s new book, The Beautiful No, is so powerful that you will want to gift it to every important woman in your life. An epic talk about life lessons and creating your dreams at any age, Sheri is reimagining life in the middle and thriving because of it.
When you are able to commit to your own version of radical self-care, gain clarity on what is serving you on your journey, and make room for the things in your life that make you feel good, you can turn your negativity ship around and manifest what is supposed to be happening for you in this life.
If you are stuck feeling blue, lonely or not totally in love with your life, Sheri is here to ask you, if not now, when? By making dreaming a part of your daily practice you can harness its power as a quantum act and serve yourself through the constant and deliberate act of going after what you want in life and not settling for anything less.

“Who you let into your life and what kind of conversations and intentions you share is serious business.” (12:45)
“Everything begins with words and language, and being able to begin with ‘I am not there yet but I am willing to try’, just the smallest thing, I’m willing to see this differently, I’m willing to grab onto some piece of hope so that I can begin to do some serious dreaming about what I want for the rest of my life.” (15:40)
“My dream work is to keep noticing how dreamy my life is and how dreamy it is becoming. Because the more I do that, I end up to to be like sticky paper where things are just happening and flying in.” (19:18)
“A mood is not something that happens to us, it is the result of our thinking, our speech, the content and the information that we let into our lives, that’s what creates our moods.” (26:57)
“No need to have catastrophe and disaster and depression and depletion, be your inspiration. Just really decide, look for the models of well being, and decide that you want some of that too.” (37:07)
