Sheri Salata spent 20 years up close and personal with Oprah Winfrey as the Executive producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show and then co-president of the OWN Network. She learned from the absolute best. Her Why Not Now? moment hit her one day when she realized that many areas of her life hadn’t been tended to and she said she became scared that she was digging her own grave. She didn’t want to just be known as the woman who “for 20 years had a great job”.
Sheri left the career of her dreams to live the life of her dreams. In this episode, Sheri talks about exactly what happened the moment she realized this had to happen and the very first steps she took to navigate this big shift in her life.
Sheri has been named one of Fast Company’s 100 most creative people in business. She is the co-founder of a media company called STORY and she also co-hosts the podcast, “This is 50 with Sheri and Nancy”.
