Intimate. Powerful. Transformative.
A once-in-a-lifetime 12-week immersive course that unleashes the power of focused, guided personal writing to up-level your life experience, begin to heal the shame that’s kept you stuck, and conquer the limiting beliefs that restrain you from showing up in the world with fearless authenticity.
Throughout - The Course - you will undergo a metamorphosis, discovering how to liberate your voice, open your heart, and become ready to share your story with the world (or your personal journal, but we have a feeling you’ll want to broadcast your experience).
Are you building obstacles out of excuses or procrastinating because of a fear of failure or rejection?
Perhaps you’re telling yourself certain things in order to NOT make your dreams of transforming your life come true. Things like:
I don’t know where to begin. It feels overwhelming.
I feel like it’s too late and I should just accept things as they are.
I’m not good at writing about myself.
I don’t have time.
I’m not sure if my story is interesting enough.
Or you find ways to continually rationalize the words “I can’t”...
Break through those limiting beliefs as we help you take your story from your heart to the page.
Here’s how the magic happens:
You’ll experience 8-weeks of a deep dive “Beautiful No” transformation based on the experience Sheri shared so vulnerably in her acclaimed memoir The Beautiful No: And Other Tales of Trial, Transcendence and Transformation.
Then, you’ll sharpen your personal writing skills during the 4-week bonus course, which focuses on memoir-style writing.
That’s 8-weeks of pure inspiration and transformation followed by 4-weeks of laser focus on building your personal narrative.
Whether you wish to become a published author who shares your story with the world, want to build a blog, write your own memoir, or simply elevate your private writings - The Course - will transform how you manifest your thoughts into reality.
You will be given the inside scoop on the exact process that allowed me to bring the The Beautiful No to life. And you will apply these tools to bringing your own creation to life.
Why take the
Write Your Story | Transform Your Life course?
- If last year showed us anything, it’s that when we do not take action on our dreams, we may miss the opportunity entirely.
- Because this year, more than any other in recent history, is a chance to re-vision the life you have created so far.
- As you build new dreams for your life you must become equipped with the tools to take action to make those dreams come true.
- It’s time to discover the “unlived” corners of your life, face the shadows, and blast them with the light of possibility.
During this 12-week experience you’ll connect with the deepest truths within your soul while you’re supported by a safe, private, like-minded community here to encourage you and build you up. A community you can continue to travel with long after the twelve weeks are complete.
You’ll gain the confidence to WRITE YOUR STORY, all at once or one gem (or blog) at a time. Plus, we dive into memoir-style writing during the bonus 4-weeks of the experience, which will polish your writing to become publish-ready.
Throughout this transformational experience you’ll build a personal connection with author and producer, Sheri Salata, one of the most prolific storytellers in media.

A personal message from Sheri
"We will never register a more intimate group or offer this opportunity at a lower price. Yes, there are succinct easy-to-follow modules + exercises. But, the secret sauce of this program will be the 20 workshops you + I spend together - LIVE - with Q + A. I’m going to personally link arms with you, open my heart + walk with you step-by-step through this 12-week journey.
In this 12-week course, you + I are going to co-create your own “Beautiful No” experience like I write about in my best-selling memoir, The Beautiful No: And Other Tales of Trial, Transcendence and Transformation. This course is essential if sharing your story (either in a book or personal blog) is a bucket list dream for you! When I was writing my book, I almost threw in the towel 3 times. I wanted to quit. I felt overwhelmed. I didn’t know where to begin. Frankly, I was a little scared to be so vulnerable. And like many of you, I wondered if anyone would care about my story.
In - The Course - I share the techniques that helped me put my heart on those pages + finally publish a best-selling book. (I recorded the audio book too!) I’ll also reveal some of my favorite writing secrets + tricks that I developed during my years at The Oprah Show. Step-by- step, we’ll find your authentic literary voice + I teach you how to excavate the gems that will inspire your audience. I’ll show you how to create your story outline, your personal writing calendar + how to master the art of “the edit.” I’ll be right by your side each week as you begin to tell the story that matters most-YOUR story. The most important part? We’re going to connect heart to heart, support one another + have FUN! Will you meet me inside the 20 LIVE workshops that I have created to deepen our connection + fuel our progress?"
