Those experiences cultivated her approaches to, and insights into people, personalities, and propensities, and she looks forward to seeing how those skills support her through her doctoral studies the next couple of years. Sharmayne released her 1st book, “Before You Begin”, a guided journal to support powerful goal setting in 2020, and has 2 popular online coaching programs - Reinvention Roadmap Accelerator small group coaching program, and Bounce Back Boldly, a self-guided mindset reset program.
