Growing Businesses, Ideas and Dreamers
In order for Ambitious Dreamers to succeed they Need Guidance, Focus, Accountability and to Gain New Skills, Not Just More Information Dumps.
I believe all Dreamers are sleeping giants. Within them they have ideas and visions that if they became a reality could empower, inspire and help many...and maybe even change the world. Unfortunately, many lack the focus, know-how, clarity, support, belief, mindset or confidence to make their ideas a reality. Think of all the Einsteins, Picassos, Steven Spielbergs, Elon Musks, Joanna Gaines, Dolly Partons, Ghandis, or Coco Chanels, that are living dormant and not creating their greatest work. My goal is to help these dreamers bring their gifts, ideas and grand visions to LIFE. It's never too late.
I offer ONE on ONE coaching, group coaching, online training and downloadable tools:
for creatives, coaches, entrepreneurs, experts, artists, & service-based entrepreneurs
My coaching, training and tools focus on the 5 Foundational Areas of Growth:
Business Development: business, product or service development, marketing, communications & public relations, branding and sales skills and training. And Founder development.
Performance Development: productivity, systems, organization and consistency.
Dreamer Development: confidence, curiosity, creativity, clarity and living from your creative true self. Learning to go from dreamer to creator.
Personal Development: mindset, mental blocks, imposter syndrome, negative inner critic, overwhelm, burnout, self-imposed limits, making change, clear self-sabotage thinking, procrastination, perfectionism, fear, and discovering the power of self-awareness.
Life Development: creating a life plan that is "outside" of your business success plan and supports your well-being, peace of mind, and quality of life.
My mission behind what I do is to unleash the creative potential of the human spirit and engage people of all ages & backgrounds to create impact, new inventions, balanced success, creativity, human connection, happiness, awakened souls & true innovation in their work, lives, community, & themselves... by living "from" their true creative self.
When you empower one person to innovate & re-imagine their place in the world and then help them GO live this EXPANDED version of themselves....you empower families, communities, industries, and generations. A person's reach touches their kids, family, friends, community and their work. And now with the internet, you can empower the world. I want to inspire and empower people so they can empower everyone around them--so they can transform their little or big corner of the world. That's how the world is changed... transforming one person at a time, from the "inside out", to live from their True Creative Self, rather than living from their ego, fearful, or wounded self. Or from a self that doesn't understand the true science happening in their mind...right now. The more people we have living in alignment with their emotionally healed self the more we all can create the lives we dream of. This will trigger a ripple effect. It's time to trigger your OWN ripple effect by discovering your place, purpose & path in this world...so you can become a True Leader of yourself, your life, your mind and your soul.

About Shari Kingston Adams
Mom, Wife, Writer, Micro-farmer, Emmy Nominated Producer & Curiosity Junkie
My name is Shari and my story has not been a straight path. It's been a winding road full of peaks and valleys-- and a few plot twists. Before becoming a mindset and business coach I had an eclectic career that has given me a very unique set of skills and experiences, coupled with some life tragedies that have shaped me to my core.
I started out in sales in the natural food & health industry when it was in its' infancy and then climbed the corporate ladder to become a marketing executive in the industry. I was a part of forging the path for many now multi-million-dollar brands. As this industry changed, I decided to take a new path in product research in the area of neuroscience and natural therapies. I worked with research teams, universities, doctors and alternative health practitioners. Studying & testing how to correct neurotransmitter imbalances, improve well-being, enhance mental performance and improve focus with natural medicine, mindfulness, psychology, self-therapy, food, detoxing, and non-traditional therapies. I created education systems to share our findings.
After being laid off from my job, I realized that I didn't want to go back to the corporate world, so I started consulting. I started consulting other natural health companies and health practitioners in marketing, product development and building a brand. Soon, entrepreneurs, non-profits, coaches, and creatives, not in the natural health industry, started reaching out to me for the same support. My consulting evolved to include the years of neuroscience and human behavioral research I had done previously, to help my clients with leadership, mindset and productivity. I was working with New York Times best-sellers, Olympic coaches, and CEOs. On paper all this looked impressive, but there was always a tug at my heart, that said, "Shari, you were meant for more than this." I just never knew what that meant.
Everything started to change in 2013, when I lost both of my parents unexpectedly a few years apart, a health scare with my son and my business mentor and his wife committed suicide. It was during this time that I was forced to remove all my preconceived notions about what I knew about life. Pain, loss and uncertainty has a way of either destroying you or awakening you. For me it was a little of both. Many parts of me were destroyed or broken--yet I found little by little, "life" sprouted in the brokenness. Before the loss of my parents, I was getting burnt out on work and I knew there had to be more. I needed to find my way back to my creative & inspired self. The loss of my parents launched me on a new journey to not only find work I loved but a life & Self I loved. This path brought me back to my true creative self. It was the path that showed me the power I had to create my own path, my own happiness, my own fulfillment but it could also create my own misery and my own overwhelm. I had been experimenting with this powerful creative process for years, but it wasn't until I lost my parents that this process transformed me as I moved through my grief for them, and led me as I've grown my life, business and spiritual self.
How everything began to change...
This creative approach to living, flooded all areas of my life with inspiration, clarity, focus and success. It also freed me from decades of emotional blocks that kept me from moving towards my inspired life. I finally felt like I was following my true path and living my "aligned life". A life that aligned with my thoughts, desires and what mattered to me most.
When I say "creative" I'm not referring to an artist but instead someone who 'creates" their own reality, their own happiness, their own path and their own fulfillment.
This process helped me become an Emmy-Nominated producer, successful writer, designer, urban flower farmer and even helped me continue my neuroscience research. I also became a stronger mom, wife and person. The best part is I started enjoying life more because I felt aligned and awakened. Developing The Creator's Way helped me discover that most people who are looking for more out of life, aren't looking for "more" they just want their desires and values to be aligned with what they do and create every day.
These breakthroughs for myself have led me to sharing this powerful process with my clients. I started helping other dormant & lost creators find their way back to their true and creative self, to launch brilliant ideas, projects, businesses, adventures & even lives. This process transformed my business also. I started taking special projects that excited me and scared me. Ones that helped non-profits, military families, service dogs, homeless families, flower farms and even Formula One race car drivers. My shift ended up helping people across the country and I even became an Emmy-Nominated Producer along the way.
Personally, we bought a travel trailer to travel more with the family and started a tiny flower farm in the heart of the city. It has been a series of tiny steps that have led me to where I am today. I still don't have it all figured out because my life is constantly evolving. I've discovered my creative way is my true north. It's a path & perspective I follow, not a destination or dogma to follow. I'm still evolving--and that's the good news!! One of the best parts has been sharing this with others and watching their life transform personally and professionally as it creates a ripple effect of happiness & success for them.
Stories from Shari's Clients.....
See case studies
"Rodman and I have struggled to take our PBS television show to the next level because we’ve had similar, yet different visions. Being a husband and wife team adds a unique dynamic and we needed someone strong enough, who we both trusted, to lead us down a path to truly reflect on why we were creating this show and where our hearts were guiding us next. After working with Shari, we felt reinvigorated to unfold our movement in a way that honored each of our unique gifts. We are confident, and slightly giddy, now that we have renewed direction and focus. It is also magical to see the other pieces of the puzzle fall into place once we said our vision out loud."
--Gina and Rodman Schley PBS Hosts and Producers of 3 seasons of Urban Conversion
"Shari is the full package. She understands the skills needed to create successful projects and successful people. She's a true leader in what she does."

--Julie Nirvelli Entrepreneur
"We are a small, start-up nonprofit organization who, like most early stage businesses, were narrowly focused on our business plan and painfully unfocused on creating brand and brand awareness. Shari opened our eyes to the type of message we wanted to deliver, and broadened the horizon of those who need to hear it. She helped us start our "movement". She is patient, creative, intuitive, nurturing - and best of all, Shari knows her business. I cannot recommend Shari Kingston Adams highly enough." Mike Hales Executive Director and Father to the Founders Chris and Matt Hales Goggles for Guppies
"Working with Shari was refreshing. I've talked to many business strategists and none have laid out such a thought out plan for me like Shari did. She asked a few questions and then jumped in quickly with a list of steps that I could take to get me where I want to be in my business. What I loved most is that she focused on my "big dream" (my WHY) for my business. I get so mired in the details of running a naturopathic medicine practice that I sometime forget to focus on where I am heading with it. Working with Shari was action-oriented and it was the first time I could see how I could get to where I want to be. It was just what I've been looking for." --
Denise Clark N.D.

"I had big dreams about what I wanted to do but for some reason I was always too scared to start. Too many imposter syndrome thoughts. I worked with Shari and found my core trauma.

The imposter syndrome doesn't stop me anymore!"
