Hi–I’m Sheree Martin: Catalyst for change. I’m a writer, creator, explorer, teacher and entrepreneur–just like my hero Ben Franklin.
And I have a mission: To inspire YOU to be curious about the world around you and to become the person you were designed to be.
Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Thoreau, Helen Keller, Leonardo da Vinci…..They weren’t stuck into boxes or pigeonholes. They weren’t trapped by people who said, “Stick to one thing, that’s the path to success.”
They set out to live the Renaissance ideal of pursing knowledge in all realms and becoming masters of their lives, despite whatever odds or forces were against them.
Throughout my life, I’ve followed the model and path of the Renaissance thinkers and do-ers. My goal has always been to become my best self, to pursue the vision and purpose for my life.
And, in doing so, to serve others and make the world a better place.
I believe that we have a responsibility to live in a way that the world is better because we were here. Not to destroy or tear down, but to enhance and restore. We are here to be gardeners and caretakers.
I believe that the principles espoused by Ben Franklin are still relevant in providing a guide to health, wealth and wisdom.
Real food, physical activity, time in nature, and proper rest are the keys to health. Today offers the greatest opportunity for financial freedom, for those who are willing to see the doors that are opening. And wisdom includes the courage to step outside your comfort zone: To explore, to discover, to learn, to grow.
I’m here to tell stories….
….that will help YOU live a better life.
Join me in the journey to live, to grow and to capture the potential of this new Renaissance age.
Discover. [Be]Inspire[d]. Grow. Shine.™
I began my formal career as a business lawyer and spent more than 10 years helping others establish and grow their businesses. Eventually, I outgrew the confines of traditional law practice and chose to pursue my own business goals.
I’ve been self-employed, both as a lawyer with employees and as a writer. I have more than 12 years experience teaching at the college level, ten of those years as a full-time. I stepped off the tenure-track for a while, then started over, then stepped off again.
I’ve finally come to realize that, as much as I love ideas and learning, I’m way too multi-disciplinary to fit into the silos of academia.
In addition to my law degree and Ph.D. in mass communication, I have a certificate in sustainable food systems leadership and I’m working to grow Shine Springs Farm into a showcase for sustainability.
