Take The Reins! 7 Secrets to Inspired Leadership


Shari’s Best-Selling Book on Amazon!

After 10 years of talking about writing a book, I finally did it and reviewers are calling it a “must-read!” This book blends the best of business strategy in leadership and sales with wisdom from my herd of horses. Each secret is supported by heartfelt true stories from my equine-assisted business coaching program. I’ve used these secrets to grow a start-up business to $2.1 million in its first year. I also used these secrets to successfully compete with my hot-headed little mare and design the life of my dreams. It took lots of bumps and bruises to learn these secrets! I hope you enjoy them. Here’s to your success! – Shari

As an avid lover of horses growing up, and an avid reader of leadership development as an adult, this book promised to merge two worlds that excite me. It was everything I hoped for and more… especially loved the stories of the horses. The examples showed us how we can build trust in our lives whether it’s with fur-covered or two-legged beings. Brilliantly simple and powerful.

I have read many books on leadership in the past, but I can safely say that [Shari’s] book has helped me more than any I’ve ever read. Full of insightful leadership advice and step-by-step instructions, she clearly explains the techniques she learned the hard way – by riding a head-strong, highly nervous, chestnut Thoroughbred mare… I highly recommend reading this book and applying her techniques.
– Bobbi McIntyre, Retired US Navy Captain, Owner/CEO, Fireside Memories

Shari inspires the reader to build energetic connections with others and allow the powerful leader inside to shine through. The journey the reader takes is powerful, valuable, and insightful…I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to take their business and brand to the next level and beyond!
