We had the good fortune of connecting with SharRon Jamison and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi SharRon, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My business was divinely inspired to address 5 key areas: Healing, Self-Liberation, Self-Love, Justice, and Fulfillment! I wanted to address those core, foundational needs because everything people want to create, challenge, and contribute in the world depends on their ability to heal their souls, acknowledge their innate gifts, trust their inner wisdom, liberate themselves from societal norms, and love themselves. When people honor themselves, they can usually honor and respect others. Without honor and respect, there can be no justice and peace. Everything is connected, The individual always affects the collective. The personal always affects the political. The spiritual affects the systemic. And the private affects the public. I wanted to address those inter-related needs and offer services that helped people be more whole, humane, and grounded in God and themselves. I wanted to help people SOAR!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My career/calling is to help women be who they were born to be, so they won’t settle for what society has taught or told them to be. I do that by helping them reclaim their true identity and appreciating their unique history so they can understand how remarkable and amazing they are. When women courageously peel back the layers of social conditioning, oppressive ideologies, and toxic traditions, they thrive in every aspect of their lives. They recognize their gifts, access their inner wisdom, and cultivate their inborn talents in innovative ways. They make value-based, heart-centered decisions and liberate themselves from the crippling status quo. There is no greater honor than seeing a woman light up, take up space, and live by her own rules – rules that honor her gifts, truth, and purpose.

I am always asked why I am so committed to this work even though I have a corporate job. My answer: I am so fiercely committed to this work–this ministry – because for years I settled for the status quo and played by societal rules. Decades of conforming and compromising left me feeling numb, insecure, and unfulfilled. Most of all, I was not maximizing my gifts because I was trying to fit into places and in relationships that were not aligned with my vision and values. Trying to fit into societal paradigms was painful and exhausting; it made me feel devalued. I never want women to feel like I felt. I want women, all women, to believe and know that they can thrive, reimagine their lives, recalibrate their careers, build businesses, and love who they want to love. I want women to feel liberated, to live their truth without permission, apology, and approval. And, I am committed to lending my hand and amplifying my voice to accomplish that goal. That’s why I created unique sisterhood programs to support women. One program is called “You Can Depend On You” and it is a self-paced program to help women discover their innate gifts, identify oppressive narratives, and dismantle negative belief systems that affect their ability to dream, create boundaries, and co-create healthy relationships. “You Can Depend On You” is based on the strategies, tools, and wisdom that I used to heal my heart. It is based on the same insight that I shared in my first book, “I Can Depend On Me.”

I also have a 6-month high-touch, high-accountability mastermind for women called “ I Dare To Be Me.” In this program, we discuss diversity, colorism, racism, sexism, and other ideologies that encourage women to devalue themselves, deny their truth, and divest of their individuality. We delve deep into backgrounds to understand what internalized, unconscious messages are undermining their ability to see themselves fully. I believe when women SEE themselves like GOD sees them, they build, confront, reimagine, love, and live fuller, more satisfying lives. They change careers, start businesses, and embrace their innate strengths. They heal, thrive, and soar, which helps others do the same, too.

If women are unable to join those programs or work with me in a 1-on-1 setting, I have books that provide support too. My latest book, “Deciding To Soar 2; Unwrapping Your Purpose” was just released last November. In “Deciding To Soar 2,” I provide strategies, wisdom, and insight that I gained from working with amazing people. The book also comes with a Reflection Guide to help people consider how the information can apply and affect their lives. The book has received rave reviews, and I am grateful that people are finding it helpful.

Overall, I want to help people, especially women, heal and soar higher than their past, trauma, social conditioning, circumstances, or anything that prevents them from being who they were born to be. That’s my goal and my mission. It’s my calling, and I feel honored to serve as a vessel.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Since we are in a pandemic, I would go to Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain, Georgia. I would go and enjoy the mountains, commune with nature, and enjoy the lakes. Right now, the world is in transition, and everything we know is changing. It’s unsettling, but I am grateful because so many of our systems, policies, and beliefs need to be updated. So many perspectives need to be confronted, challenged, and changed. So many people need to be cared about and cared for. There is so much work to do. So, I would sit and just talk and imagine what’s possible, determine what’s next, and pray for guidance. That would be fun for me.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
When I think about my journey, I am most thankful for everyday women who defy the odds and strive amid adversity. Even though they are champions, trailblazers, and change agents, we rarely recognize them for the sacrifices they make to raise their families, support their communities, care for their elderly parents, while maintaining full-time careers or building businesses. Those women, many who remain nameless, are my (s)heroes who inspire and embolden me to take risks, amplify my voice, challenge injustice, and pursue my purpose. These women, who never get applause or recognition, deserve praise for their courage and commitment to humanity.
