about sharon

Everyone was telling me to either deal with it or get out...I wanted something better.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be an artist, a teacher, a therapist, a hairdresser, and a financial advisor

In other words, I wanted to create beautiful things and help people live beautiful lives.

But my very practical parents had something else in mind, and I was very eager to please and impress them.

I became an engineer instead.

I was very good at following someone else's plan for my life. Until I got out into the working world and realized that not everyone loves a smart, accomplished woman (even if they're married to one).

I didn't know what to do when my achievements and accomplishments weren't enough to get everyone to love me.

I had to learn how to speak up for myself. Not just at work, but in my family and my marriage also.

Things got pretty bad before they got better.

I left my job after my second child was born to become a very unhappy and unfulfilled stay-at-home mom to two babies under two.

I argued with my husband constantly about his lack of support and appreciation for all the work I was doing on my own.

After we hit rock bottom, I finally learned how to speak up for myself without pushing all his buttons.

People have always said that we make a great team, and now it's actually true.

That's a gift I believe everyone should have.
