"Sheri has been a true inspiration to me, as a writer and businesswoman. I attended Sheri's Book Writing, Publishing, and Marketing Tele-class. Sheri's warmth, generosity, and genuineness was present throughout the entire tele-class, as was her professionalism. She willingly provided many ideas, tips and techniques that have helped me grow in confidence as I consider navigating the world of self-publishing myself. Sheri dreams big - encouraging the whole world to dream with her!" ~ Laurie Crookell, Canada

"I have learned so much from Sheri--from marketing techniques, to the ins and outs of independent printing, to great writing habits and time organization. Sheri emanates such joy when helping others reach their literary goals, as well as inspiring many people with her books!" ~ Danielle Soucy Mills, United States

"Sheri has been a big influence in my life as a writer, illustrator and entrepreneur. She is always available to give advice and is very knowledgable about entrepreneurship and the publishing industry. Sheri's mentorship has led me to start my own publishing company (EG Press (dot) com), as well as write and illustrate my own books. Sheri is someone that can be counted on and trusted. I recommend Sheri as a mentor to anyone who wishes to reach their dreams as a published author!" ~ Natalie Catania, Canada

"Sheri and I both own our own companies. She has been very successful as an author and when I was getting ready to publish my first book, I asked for her help. Sheri gave me an extremely valuable to-do list of things that would help me promote my book and make it successful. I know it would not have been anywhere near as successful without all the advice she gave me. I would definitely hire Sheri if I were a first time author. She is self-published and highly successful with several best-sellers under her belt. Take advice from those who have done it, and keep doing it consistently! Sheri loves to coach people to success and she's such an example of what is possible if you are willing to do the work!" ~ Donna Dawley, United States

"Dear Sheri, Thank you for providing such a clear and informative tele-class! I feel much more prepared for the publishing and marketing of my new book / the startup of my new business. You're a fantastic teacher." ~ Leeza Metrovich, Germany

"Having watched Sheri go from talking about the dream of writing a children's book to becoming an Amazon best-selling author, who is regularly interviewed and speaking about her book, I am confident she will be able to help other authors publish and publicize their books. On a recent call, Sheri was able to provide me with not only crystal- clear information on how to get my book Wildflower Meditations: A Gift for the Spirit listed on Amazon, but also to lay the groundwork for a future Amazon best-seller campaign." ~ Patty Hankins, United States

"Sheri is one amazing lady! When it comes to marketing her message and putting together a campaign to introduce a new book or idea, I have witnessed Sheri in action. She knows her stuff! Sheri has an impeccable way of working with people. She has an impeccable way of communicating with children. This is one lady I highly recommend when it comes to putting a book on the best seller's list...along with getting your message out. Amazing lady!" ~ Sheila Unique, Canada

"Sheri Fink is a #1 best-selling author and a great author mentor. She showed me ways to make more money in my business right now and recommended ways to expand my product offerings and serve more people. She gave me strategies to get my book done while achieving my other professional goals, and suggested ideas to launch the Truth and Change Institute faster than I thought possible. Sheri lives her values and beliefs, I was looking for someone with integrity and kindness yet who would be direct and sincere with sharing her business knowledge and wisdom to help me get set up with my own business." ~ Elouise Di Luce, United Kingdom

"Sheri is an author and leader with great vision and heart. Her books are geared toward empowering children, helping them see the beauty within instead of buying in to 'media' beauty. She inspires them to gain self-confidence and inner strength - a fabulous gift to help them gain a much more positive future. As a writing group leader, Sheri brings that same vision, heart and drive to help new authors uncover their own gift. She is a great collaborator and exceptional business partner. I highly recommend working with Sheri and also invite everyone to share her books with the children in your life, so our world can heal and grow stronger." ~ Jana Beeman, United States
