Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away.

This keynote is inspired by Sheri's 2nd book, published in 2012, also called Working From Home & Making It Work©
In this very resourceful and customizable keynote (or workshop series), Working From Home & Making It Work©, Sheri Andrunyk will become your new and trusted "Go To Person" on almost everything-from creating the elusive work/life balance, healthy and lasting relationships, and exceptional self-management, to defining challenges for what they are, embracing change and enjoying true success on your own terms.

Sheri proves what is possible when you come from a place of integrity within yourself and with others, and truly want to make a difference whatever your role. This has been the inspiration and driving force for her own personal transformation over the years-and she generously shares it with us in Working From Home & Making It Work©.
Sheri also writes a very informative blog on the business of writing, marketing, publishing, and entrepreneurship, and you can follow her on Twitter (IC Publishing), LinkedIn (Sheri Andrunyk) and Facebook (Women For Women Canada and Companies).
This is often delivered with a panel of story contributors accompanying Sheri for part of her message, depending on the time available, and needs of event and audience.
Sheri Andrunyk is the Author and Publisher of Hearts Linked by Courage, a powerfully poignant, hope-filled collection of real-life stories. In this exceptional keynote, Sheri will awaken you in your own journey, and remind you of the often similar path that others are on. She will stir compassion and healing. Her message is meant to move you and it will; it's meant to encourage you and it does!
"...The purpose of this book and message is simple. It is to encourage compassion and kindness in others, and to look beyond what you see or hear. Everyone has a story, many actually-like the ones in this book, and also like the ones that are not in this book, because we're not quite ready to share and embrace the pain associated with those experiences. When we are ready though, we will always have a choice, and there are many ways to heal-sharing your story is one way, because it helps another know that they're not alone ... and perhaps it reassures us too.
I believe that the difficult and challenging times in our lives, is what defines us most. There is profound teaching in every situation, if we are open to it.
What this book is not about, is magnifying or belabouring these sometimes incredibly tragic moments-it is about honouring them actually, and celebrating the learning, wisdom and appreciation we gained for what is . . . and isn't 'now'.
Hearts Linked by Courage is a collection of inspirational stories, ones of courage, cancer diagnosis, surviving and thriving after abuse, the loss of a loved one and more! They're meant to give you hope and encouragement that inspires you to have faith, learn from your experiences, be present and thankful every day, and take the higher road in life, regardless of what life throws at you.
And when you are in the depths of the "going through" phase, let these stories be a reminder that this too shall pass and you are not alone."

What Others Have to Say...
"Sheri has acted as emcee at my "Woman's Worth" event for 4 years in a row as well as our motivational speaker one year. Her dedication and commitment to the event, along with her organizational skills has contributed to making each event a huge success. She not only speaks to the audience but she reaches their hearts. I look forward to working with Sheri on my future events."
President, The Business Agents
"...I was struck immediately, not only by Sheri's professional demeanour but also by the warmth and sincerity that filled the room when she spoke. I continued to observe this in Sheri as we became business associates involved in two networking groups chaired both by Sheri in the capacities of President and Vice-President. As an Independent Professional and Team Leader Sheri's integrity shines through. She is articulate and well organized, thorough and always informative. Sheri's efficiency and her communication skills, both written and verbal are excellent. She always leaves her listeners inspired and with much to think about... Sheri never asks more of anyone than she is willing to do herself, often going above and beyond what is required. Sheri lives by her mantra by motivating and encouraging everyone around her to be the best they can be. In addition to being a leading professional, Sheri has a generous heart and is devoted to her friends, family and colleagues. She has an innate ability to take the focus off of herself and to concentrate on the immediate need of the person or persons before her. I would highly recommend Sheri to encourage others as Motivational Speaker, Consultant and/or in any Team Leadership capacity..."
