"I never felt there were enough platforms to celebrate women.”

"They all have a huge purpose. A purpose that is bigger than them.”

"Learning to figure out things along the way. As women, we can do that.”

"Having that mindset of abundance. You’ll attract more things into your life."

"Surrounding yourself with great people…will give you feedback on what you can improve on."

"How do I see myself if I were this confident person?”

Sheena’s favorite tidying tip: “I wear just three colors to make my life a lot easier. It helps me focus on other, more important things.”

What sparks joy for Sheena: My podcast! I love helping women…and if I can help one person, I have done my job. It’s all worth it if someone out there hears it and thinks, “If its possible for one person, its possible for me.”

Parting words of wisdom: Behind every great woman is herself. You are what creates success.
