Truu North Founder Speaking
Shari Kingston Adams, Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Truu North, mom,
writer and entrepreneur. She has worked 20+ years in PR, marketing and
sales for multi-million dollar companies (Whole Foods, GNC, Chrysler & Canon)
and running her own communications consulting company,hired by multi-million
dollar companies, start-ups, non-profits, New York Times best selling authors,
Olympic coaches and even a reality star and Nobel Peace Price Winner.
There hasn't been much she hasn't tried, seen or encountered in PR, marketing,
branding and sales.
With a busy career and a family she was working hard to keep it all
going, then the unthinkable happened---twice. In 2013 she lost her
seemingly healthy mom unexpectedly, to a massive heart attack. They were
sharing a coffee in the morning and that afternoon she was performing CPR
on her mom trying to save her life. Shari's life was changed in an instant. Then one year later
her then 10 yr. old son spent three days in ICU fighting for his life and was diagnosed with a severe case of Diabetic Ketoacidosis, which ultimately led to her learning he had Type 1 Diabetes. She learned that
his condition was so critical in the hospital that he narrowly escaped with his life. Her life was turned upside down again.
She began to question every part of her life, asking "What now?" "What next?". Answers didn't come quickly but Aha! moments did...like when she realized she was over-stressed,over-worked and under-inspired. She also abruptly discovered that life grants us zero promises and we don't have all the time in the world to "be", "do" or "have" all that we desire.
In time she learned to DO Success & Life differently because she decided that life without fulfillment was a waste of precious time.
She realized that moving products and pushing sales agendas wasn't how she wanted to use her skills or how she wanted to help people. She wanted to "move people", "push" missions--and find purpose. She wanted her work and life to move "her" again....so she fired most of her clients and started helping non-profits, passionate entrepreneurs, start-ups and mission based organizations start their movements and change the world. It was time to build a life instead of a resume! And now it's her ongoing journey.
Her story and experience gives her a unique style that is blatantly real, to the point, entertaining, insightful and rich with content. She'll share thought provoking stories, laugh til' you cry stories and stories that will inspire you that anything is possible. She shares insightful content that gives individuals and organizations
a rich understanding on how to rise up, overcome and excel in business and in life.
She brings INSPIRATION, LEARNING and IMPACT together in a way that leaves audiences begging for more. More info:
