Bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert says the universe buries strange jewels deep within us. Nothing seems more true when you hear the surprising story of broadcast journalist Sheree Franklin, who became a successful marketing entrepreneur only to trade it all in for a new career as intuitive coach and meditation counselor.
And, then there’s the intriguing nod from the universe when Sheree Franklin is selected from more than 100,000 applicants to join Oprah Winfrey on her Ultimate Australian Adventure in 2010. This Down Under with Oprah trip led to her being selected as a person of interest to interview for the two-part show.
What’s clear is that Franklin has lived an incredible life of discovery and leadership with much of it about mining those hidden jewels. She has also been featured on various news programs including NBC’s Channel 5 in Chicago, and other prominent media outlets like WBEZ radio. Franklin been a featured columnist in Ebony Magazine and Black Enterprise. But her most recent and compelling work as an intuitive coach suggests she’s just getting started.
For Franklin, the process of living well and harnessing your dreams begins with the tools she offers in her book, Intuition: The Hidden Asset Everyone Should Learn to Use. While most people think of intuition as that little voice telling us what to do when a decision arises, this definition falls short for Franklin. She believes each one of us has it and that “intuition is the God-given gift to sense and feel what is going in and around us at all given times.”
