Meet Financial Life Coach, Sherri Somers

Tell us how you got into entrepreneurship.

My son got sick and passed out at school not breathing and this ended my law enforcement career. I needed a way to make money yet have flexible time to be with my son. I started a property preservation business which lead me to become a real estate investor. I needed money to fund my business so I tapped into my life insurance policy to get access to cash flow to fund my business. This then leads me to work with high-achieving women who are super successful but have the challenge of being busy in their personal and professional live that they don’t have time to optimize their finances to generate cash flow in a way they would like. Using my Revenue Experience Program, I help them worry less about money and start enjoying life.

What’s one of the greatest accomplishments you have achieved in your business and what was key to seeing this success?

My greatest accomplishment is receiving an Invitation to the White House by President Barack and Michelle Obama, for helping released inmates start and market their businesses. As a former corporal with the Sheriff's Office, I saw firsthand the increase in the recidivism rate in my community. I wanted to do something about inmates constantly returning back to jail. No one would hire these inmates due to their records. I took action, I partner with career sources, local pastors, and other organizations to teach inmates how to start a business and become tax-payers. My work in the community got the attention of the president and he invited me to the White House. The key to seeing this success is knowing that my knowledge and expertise in finance and business made a difference in my community.


Where do you see yourself in the next 3-5 years?

Scaling my Revenue Experience Program to help 1,000 women increase their earning power and protect their assets. Now more than ever women need to take charge of their financial independence. This starts by rewiring the way we think about money and using practical strategies to increase revenue.


What do you love most about being a CEO Chick?

The ability to meet more like-minded women and provide a safe space to learn and grow my business.


Who inspires you?

My mother inspires me. My mother is an immigrant from Jamaica. She taught me the importance of hard work and having self-confidence. She came to America with nothing and now she owns real estate.

Where do you see yourself in the next 3-5 years?

Whatever God has planned for us. We don’t want to get in the way of his plans for our business. I’ve learned to set goals but to remember sometimes our goals are not his goals. Learning to trust him and he will direct our paths.
