Making Music from her Heart, singer and songwriter, Shab
January 20, 2022
Hosted by Jodi Harrison Bauer
In this episode, I had the honor and pleasure of meeting breakthrough musical artist, Shab. A product of three continents, Shab is an American singer and songwriter who was born in Tehran and the youngest of 13 children. She shares her journey of fleeing from her country at 8 years old for Germany and then coming to America at 14. Fluent in Farsi and English, she released her first album singing in her native Farsi language in 2016 & 2017. In 2018, she decided to crossover as an English language entertainer. What I found most beautiful about talking to Shab was her heart, and it makes complete sense that she wrote her hit single, 'Music To My Heart." She cares about the message in her music and the importance of empowering her fans. Practicing yoga, having gratitude, never allowing fear to stop her and allowing the universe to guide her is how she lives her life. This is a "must listen" episode.

Jodi Harrison Bauer is a two-time World Bikini Champion, founder and owner of JodiFit boutique fitness studio, host of Fearlessly Authentic podcast and the oldest woman to ever compete for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, making global headlines and the Top 60 finalists in 2019.
Growing up, Jodi was a people pleaser and scared of everything. She graduated with a BA from Simmons College in 1983. Jodi’s life changed forever when, at 42 years old, she built the courage to take control of her own happiness. Since then, Jodi has worked relentlessly to better herself, build her business, nurture her relationships and create the life she knew she always deserved, one with passion and purpose.
In doing so, she hasn’t followed the rules or fit in the box society wanted to put her in. She started competing in fitness shows when she was “too old,” opened a business at 50 and got re-married eight years later. She competed against women more than half her age for a spot in Sports Illustrated Swim to prove age and beauty are not directly correlated.
Today she defines herself as an ageless warrior and an advocate against ageism. In her studio, on her podcast and across her social channels, Jodi focuses on empowering women.
Jodi is the proud mother of two grown daughters and a rescue pup. Outside of JodiFit, you can find her on the beach or dancing like no one’s watching. She lives by the words “Never let fear stop you from being YOU."
