August 11, 2016
Hosted by Amy Braido
Plagued and embarrassed by her name, made worse by a nomadic childhood that made it impossible to build lasting relationships, Shenandoah Chefalo developed a tough skin at an early age. Along the way she learned to deal with disappointment, push through discomfort, overcome adversity and accurately gauge people, qualities that have helped her to succeed. After spending nearly 20 years as a Law Office Administrator, Shenandoah became unsettled by the ever revolving door of people into the criminal justice system and set out to find a way to change it. Please join me as she speaks about how she's taking action to change the lives of foster care children!

Imagine if we all listened to the inner voice that tells us that we can do great things? What if you could take your negative life experience and turn it into a positive for others? Maybe these actions would impact the world, the community, or change the life of a single person. What if you were chosen to take a risk that seemed too big, ridiculously scary, or incredibly uncomfortable? What would you do with that prompting? Would you ignore it and believe it to be impossible or step up and attack the challenge? Listen to others as they teach us how to apply the proper skills to move forward in action, who accepted that tug on their heart, despite personal gain in some instances, and learn ways you can RAISE THE BAR for yourself and those around you, in order to create positive change and outcome. This show is about empowering ourselves to be our best while developing this belief in others for the common good of people.
