Dinner Event with Sheri Salata
You are invited to dinner with Author Sheri Salata on Monday, June 24th, in Sherman Oaks, at a private home.
The Beautiful NO
She had manifested the career of her dreams, but not the life of her dreams. Now what?
For 20 years, Sheri Salata gave her undivided focus to her dream job at The Oprah Winfrey Show, Harpo Studios and the OWN network. She had access to the most influential, prolific teachers and wisdom keepers of our time, helped millions transform their own lives, and shaped some of the most memorable and moving stories on television. But at fifty-six, she found herself ready and willing to rewrite the story of her own life.
THE BEAUTIFUL NO: And Other Tales of Trial, Transcendence, and Transformation is Salata’s humorous, touching, thought-provoking and inspiring story of how she finally decided to “produce” her own life transformation and how readers can, too.
Launching her middle of life reinvention, Salata realized that much of the cultural messaging for woman in their fifties and beyond was about “winding down the party.” She writes: “In our culture, once women hit fifty-four nobody cares what we think. The media industry stops tracking our opinions, viewing habits, our spending. At fifty-five I ran a television network that, from a demographic perspective, could not have cared less about me.” Salata shares how it takes courage for women in the middle of life to revision their lives rather than continue down a well-worn path. Having the courage to step out and think up new possibilities having lived through decades is very different from the wide-eyed hoping of a kid who wants to someday become someone. On top of that, she says, “many of us are steeped in generational beliefs that will challenge the idea that we are even supposed to make the rest of our dreams come true.”
After a deep and thorough reckoning, Salata embarked on a year of committed radical self-care. She outlined the areas of her life where she would begin to make new dreams come true. Body, Health, Spirituality,Relationships, Romance & Sex, and new professional dream to chart her own course as the cofounder of a media company with her BFF and podcast cohost, Nancy Hala. Step one was establishing the foundational premise that being selfish is not even in the same universe as narcissism. Acknowledging and cultivating your own well-being must come first—it’s the very best offering you can give the people in your life, your community, the world. Salata acknowledges that the recipe will look different for each person and life can present challenges--maybe the kids are still at home, parents are depending on you, you’re burdened by debt--but your own quest begins right where YOU are and it’s never too late to rewrite the story of your life.
