FROM HOMELESS TO SIX FIGURES
Hello! My name is Shalena D.I.V.A. Broaster. I am the best-selling author of "Fire Your Friends: A Woman's Guide to Becoming Her Own Best Friend”, an award winning speaker as well as a global life and business coach. Through my company, AFM Global, LLC, I specialize in showing women how to create sustainable online businesses. I've helped hundreds of women create ecommerce stores, launch their coaching and speaking careers and write best selling books by offering courses on my online school http://www.bestsellingyear.com.
My journey to success began in June of 2012 when I hit rock bottom. I became homeless and jobless after I ended a toxic 6 year relationship. For almost 2 years I was homeless and jobless. I couldn’t find a job even though I had a great education and skills.
I didn’t realize it, but I possessed valuable social media skills, too. Over the years I had fallen in love with social media and built a loyal following. A good friend advised me to put those skills to use. Although I was PETRIFIED of offering those services because I was COMPARING MYSELF TO OTHERS, I had to earn a living so I turned to the internet.
In October of 2014, I moved past my fears and launched my online business with my laptop, wifi, and my cell phone. Within one year I earned six figures! I created a better life for my son and myself.
THE MAKING OF A D.I.V.A.
I call myself a D.I.V.A. because I learned how to discover, invest, value and appreciate my life and business after I hit “rock bottom.” I had to learn to discover my gifts and invest my time, talent and treasure into them. This discovery led to me falling in love with myself and learning how to define my own value and worth. True self love led to total appreciation of my life's experiences. Ultimately I learned that I have EVERYTHING I need to create a life and business I love. You do, too.
I am passionate about helping women to earn online income because I realized that having an online business doesn’t have the expenses of a traditional brick and mortar business and offers many women the flexibility they need to be more present for themselves and their families. That is why I am dedicated to educating, equipping and training women how to earn great income from home or as a side hustle while still working their 9 to 5.
