    Sheri Salata, guys. What. A. Lady! You may know her as the past executive Producer of the Oprah Winfrey Show and former Co-President of Harpo Studios and OWN, but Sheri’s current venture is just as exciting!

    Her action-packed days as Executive Producer on The Oprah Winfrey Show have come to a close when she chose to leave to co-found her own company, STORY, a media company producing print, digital, and live event content...

    Sheri has been named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business, The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Power 100 and the 2017 Feminist Press Power Award winners. She is also a co-host of the popular podcast series “This is Fifty” where she summarizes mid-life as she sets out to make the rest of her dreams come true.

    Today, I asked Sheri to come on because (let’s be real!) I just want to hear her story! So many facets of her life are inspiring to me! How she worked her way up working for Oprah, what it takes to “make it” in a media world, her work ethic, her creativity, and ultimately, what it was like leaving such a comfortable, well-known job to pursue her own path! Giddy up, Goal Diggers, because you are about to hear one amazing story!
