The @SkinnyBrands Story – Turning Passion Into Reality! #77

In this episode, we talk with Sherie Stevens about how she turned a dream into a reality, a passion into a company called Skinny Addictions.  Sherie, is a former fitness trainer who founded Skinny Addictions, a cookie company driven to create a healthier alternative to sugary sweets.

What she shares: An insight into the entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to reinvent yourself at any age by choosing to follow the path that leads to finding, as Paulo Coelho (author of The Alchemist) writes, our own Personal Legend. As well as finding the balance of a healthy lifestyle by choosing to eat smarter (and train smarter).

Many of us have said things like this:

I have this great idea… if only I could find the time. I have this vision to do something different, something I really love… I think the reality is if we only truly understood how achievable are dreams were, how many more of us there would be reaching for them. It takes gumption, bravery and a little bit of crazy to enter the world of entrepreneurs and boldly live your passions where no others have gone before.
