Sheri Salata spent 20 years up close and personal with Oprah Winfrey as the Executive producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show and then co-president of the OWN Network. She learned from the absolute best. Her Why Not Now? moment hit her one day when she realized that many areas of her life hadn’t been tended to and she said she became scared that she was digging her own grave. She didn’t want to just be known as the woman who “for 20 years had a great job”.

Sheri left the career of her dreams to live the life of her dreams. In this episode, Sheri talks about exactly what happened the moment she realized this had to happen and the very first steps she took to navigate this big shift in her life.

Sheri has been named one of Fast Company’s 100 most creative people in business. She is the co-founder of a media company called STORY and she also co-hosts the podcast, “This is 50 with Sheri and Nancy”.

Danika Brysha is a plus-size model, entrepreneur and icon for taking action. Her career was thriving as a plus-size model until she began to lose weight. She went from being on top earning a healthy six figures a year to getting a pink-slip on her door, going into six-figure debt and living in her parent’s garage. She started a meal-delivery business from nothing and began to work her way back. Recently Danika wrote a check to pay off the final portion of her debt and she’s thriving.

In this episode she talks through what happened the moment she decided to take action and shift from having debt-centric mindset to a mindset of abundance. Danika shares the literal step she took. It’s brilliant and powerful. After doing this one thing, the rest began to fall into place.

Virginia Grohl, mom of Foo Fighters rockstar Dave Grohl, wrote a book titled From Cradle to Stage. She met with the moms of many rockstars and gathered stories about Dave Matthews, Zac Brown, Amy Winehouse, Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine, Mike D (the Beastie Boys), Kelly Clarkson and the list goes on. What Virginia Grohl uncovered after speaking with all of these rock moms is fascinating.

In this episode Virginia tells us what Dave Grohl was like as a child and the challenges that can come with having highly creative and energetic kids. Virginia, who’s a retired school teacher, shares her thoughts about our education system and also what parents can do when they have a child with explosive energy on their hands.

You’ll find that Virginia is a kick! She’s been know to travel on the tour bus with the rockstars and even crack a beer with them backstage. She’s seen and done a great deal and she’s not stopping.

Live interview from stage: Mrs. Tani Austin has been named the Female Philanthropist of the Year and honored at the First Ladies Summit at the UN General Assembly. I was recently in Las Vegas and interviewed Mrs. Tani Austin live on stage at a conference. Mrs. Austin is the co-founder of the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Her husband, Bill Austin, is the founder of Starkey Hearing Technologies. Tani travels the world and has helped more than 1 million people receive the gift of hearing thanks to her Foundation.
 
Mrs. Austin is as down to earth as it gets yet rubbing elbows with former presidents and folks like the Dali Lama are a regular occurrence in her world. I have a great deal of respect for her fierce honesty and willingness to roll up her sleeves and make an impact. Our conversation covers many areas and topics - if you’re wondering how to inject a little more purpose in your life - you’ll find this helpful. And if you have a live event coming up and want to do a live Why Not Now? interview on stage, keep me in mind.
