Biography

Barbara Sher is a business owner, career counselor, and the best-selling author of six books on goal achievement and teamwork. She has taught team building, goal-achievement, communication skills, networking and brainstorming in schools, companies and at conferences all over the world. She has appeared on national and local radio and television, including Oprah, The Donahue Show, The Today Show, 60 Minutes, CNN and Good Morning America.

Ms. Sher's first book Wishcraft: How to Get What You Really Want (Viking, Ballantine Books) has sold over a million copies since its first printing in 1979. The book came from her 1972 motivational innovation, "Success Teams," small groups whose members meet weekly to help each other find and achieve their dreams. The "Success Teams" were an instant hit and were written up on the front page of The Wall Street Journal and in The New York Times. By 1976, she was running workshops to teach people how to create "Success Teams" throughout the United States and Europe. Today, her teams are operating in colleges and universities, career centers, Fortune 100 companies and entrepreneur associations in countries from the US to Nepal, Siberia, Israel, Canada, Thailand, Australia, and Bulgaria.

When Barbara Sher discovered that many people were unsure of their goals, she began hosting problem-solving sessions and developing dozens of powerful techniques that freed people from "goal-paralysis." These techniques are developed and refined in all her books, workshops, audio courses and television specials.

Barbara Sher's next three books were published by Dell/Delacorte: The New York Times best-seller I Could Do Anything if I Only Knew What It Was; followed in 1996 by Live the Life You Love in Ten Easy Step-by-Step Lessons, which won the first award ever given for "Best Motivational Book of the Year" by the Books For A Better Life Award Commission; and her fifth book, It's Only Too Late If You Don't Start Now, How to Create Your Second Life at Any Age, a highly unconventional look at the second half of life. Genius Press Unltd published Ms. Sher's latest book, Barbara Sher's Idea Book, in 2003. It is the first in a new series called "How to Do What You Love Without Starving to Death."

Two more PBS specials followed Ms. Sher's first: "Live the Life You Love/Map to Success," and "Barbara Sher's Idea Party". Her originality, humor and compassion continue to create excitement and draw new supporters to public television year after year. Her work has been called "standup comedy with a message." In 2000, She won an honorary Ph.D. from Lasell College in recognition of her "extraordinary achievements...and inspirational leadership in helping people to attain their personal and professional dreams."

Presently, Barbara Sher consults with individual clients, runs lively interactive workshops as well as telephone classes and idea parties, speaks in front of companies and organizations around the world and travels every spring and fall to her second home in Central Turkey where she has started a foundation called Hands on Hips, Inc., to teach e-commerce to village weavers.
