Entrepreneurship is a coveted field in these times. And why not? After all, all of us grow up with some dreams in our eyes. We want to be our own boss. We aspire to clinch the top position by doing what we truly and passionately love. And with the advent of several opportunities and means, which continue to multiply each day, it is now a little easier to challenge the limits and norms. It is now a tad bit easier to be who we are meant to be. However, in the end, the key to success remains to be ...more

Dr. Shellie leaves no (wo)man behind on the path to success. In her much anticipated 13th book, Ball Gowns to Yoga Pants, she removes barriers and creates opportunities for the hopelessly romantic entrepreneur.

Dr. Shellie provided me with an intern-mentorship after graduating from Duquesne University. She is an inspiration, and a fighter. She always does what is right, not only for herself, but for her tribe. I remember that being one of the most influential takeaways I took from that position

"Your why is known ; you need to establish the how!"

We're often told to set on the path of mediocrity. We can be so much more but not at the cost of our lofty comfort zones. We think it's easy for those who made it big in the life.

I was skeptical when I began reading Ball Gowns to Yoga Pants. I didn’t consider myself an entrepreneur. I wasn’t developing a niche market or selling the world a unique product that would change lives. I’m a novelist who needed a plan to help an agent sell my book to a publisher. Within a few pages, it was clear Dr. Shellie’s book was a perfect roadmap. The specific questions and pro tips are invaluable. Both firmly structured on a foundation of research, and sweetened with personal stories and ...more

I knew Dr. Shellie while she was still a tenured professor. As I was reading the book, I realized that I knew her when she was at a very pivotal point in their life. I noticed at that time that she was driven. You could just tell that something was up and that she was driven to achieve her goals. Looking back on those many years, she has clearly killed it!
