Chapter 110-Shelly of Black Girl Ventures

Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Shelly.

In this chapter, Shelly shares her experience growing up in North Carolina, the unwavering support from her mother, and the gifts the women in her family gave her.

Shelly knew early on the power of branding and the power of her presence, so she made sure to be visible through photos while putting her ideas out in the world. She takes us through her creative life from computer science, to poetry, to renting a tent in her home, to running a printing business, and talks about how the importance of community drove her to create Black Girl Ventures.

By experiencing herself through her various businesses, Shelly began to understand the importance of seeing her impact and being intentional in knowing the gravity of her work and worth. She says resist the urge to be average and believes that we should talk more about how to be the dumbest person while in circle.

Shelly is a problem solver and practices hacking her way to what she wants, a rebellious path that started from her questioning her Pentecostal roots. She experienced a transformation working with a coach to help her dial into her intuition and speaks about radical self-love and the connection to money.

Travel changed Shelly’s worldview on how to serve and the many ways of living life and she walks us through her process of asking about what is true that helps her to overcome her challenges.
