EP.17 – Hobby to Multimillion-Dollar, Celebrity-Endorsed, Brand with Shari Fitzpatrick

Shari Fitzpatrick takes us on a journey into the world of building the world’s famous line of gourmet-dipped strawberries known as Shari’s Berries and how she reinvented herself on travels nationwide as an inspirational speaker sharing her down-to-earth, heartfelt business story and encouraging others to follow their dreams – even when business and life don’t always go the way we’ve planned. Shari’s tells us the secrets of how her brand attracted international attention through appearances in O Magazine, on the Today Show, on Food Network, The Apprentice, In Style Magazine, People Magazine, and shows like Wheel of Fortune, QVC, and Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneurial Soul.

I met Shari at the WIA conference in California where she was the keynote speaker; I was so moved by her message, her epic life journey and the trials and tribulations of her tremendous berry business.

With no business education or experience, twenty-five-year-old Fitzpatrick had only a $1,500 cash advance and a passion for chocolate-dipped strawberries when she started a home-based business.
