About Shari Kingston Adams
Truu North Founder, Mom, Wife, Writer, Micro-farmer, Visionary, Over-comer & Life-long Student
For 20 years I've worked with CEOs, TV Show Hosts, Olympic Coaches, writers, artists, entrepreneurs and non-profits helping them innovate and grow their ideas. I've helped them generate over $150 million dollars. But over the years I saw many of my clients find professional success but they were still unhappy...unfulfilled. I realized that was how I felt also.
It wasn't until I lost both of my parents unexpectedly a few years apart, a health scare with my son and several other difficult losses that I realized how fragile life was and how professional success doesn't create WHOLE LIFE success & happiness. I realized that life grants us no guarantees and being happy had to be my choice. After all of these experiences it made me want to "be" a better person, a happier person, help more people and experience more of life. Even though I quickly "decided" I wanted to make changes, the changes didn't happen immediately but the transformation has been a powerful one in my life, business and spirit.
How everything began to change...
Truu North was born out my own need to figure out how to build "whole life happiness & success". This wasn't an attempt to create an "Instagram Perfect" life just a "fuller" life and to live more "truuth-FULLY"--while building intentional & transformational success. As a result, I shifted my whole consulting business and started Truu North from scratch. I think in hopes of finding my own Truuth and Truu North in the process. After starting Truu North, I shifted who I worked with and how I helped them. I prioritized my happiness and what was truuly important to me--and started living from that core. I took special projects that excited me and scared me. Ones that helped non-profits, military families, service dogs, homeless families, flower farms and even Formula One race car drivers. My shift ended up helping thousands of people across the country and I even became an Emmy-Nominated Producer along the way. Personally, we bought a travel trailer to travel more with the family and started a micro-farm in the heart of the city. It has been a series of tiny steps that have led me to where I am today. I still don't have it all figured out because my life is constantly evolving. I've discovered my Truu North is a path & perspective I follow, not a destination or dogma to follow. I'm still evolving--and that's the good news!! One of the best parts has been sharing this with others and watching their life transform personally and professionally as it creates a ripple effect of happiness & success for them.
Our purpose behind Truu North is to unleash the creative potential of the human spirit and engage people of all ages & backgrounds to create impact, new inventions, creativity, human connection & truu innovation in their work, lives, community, & themselves... by living their Truu North. Living your Truu North isn't perfection, it's trying, exploring, testing & experimenting new ideas on your journey of living true to your heart's desires so you can innovate, transform and re-imagine your place in the world and help others do the same. Truu North is about being an independent thinker & doer. It's about living 'truuthfully" to your own gut feeling, rather than obeying other people's truuths--while not getting lost in the pursuit and ignore the important things in life.
When you empower one person to innovate & re-imagine their place in the world and then help them GO live this EXPANDED version of themselves....you empower generations. A person's reach touches their kids, family, friends, community and work. We want to inspire and empower people so they can empower everyone around them--so they can transform their corner of the world. That's how the world is changed... transforming one person at a time to live their Truu North Life will trigger a ripple effect. It's time to trigger your OWN ripple effect by discovering your place, purpose & path in this world...to you can become a Truu Leader of yourself, your life, your mind and your soul.
