‘No Shade’ author Cherisse Stephens empowers women to succeed through positivity

Share Michelle Obama once said, “When they go low, we go high”—a precept an Atlanta-based television host and author was living out long before the former first lady coined that phrase.

Now Cherisse Stephens, who has written No Shade: A Self-Empowerment & Inspirational Journal, is taking her brand of positivity on the road with a 2017 national tour to empower women to rise above all the negativity.

Her No Shade - Time To Shine Empowerment Tour is a mix of inspiration, triumphant praise, and helpful seminars, giving attendees both an educational and motivational experience. Best of all, it is free and open to the public, and is drawing women's groups, teens and pre-teens, because it offers something for the entire family.

Stephens, who is a successful entrepreneur and in-demand speaker knows that putting others down is no way to reach the top—something she discusses in her No Shade book.

“I chose the title No Shade because the word shade is used in today’s society as a way to describe people who are negative, jealous, vindictive, haters and the list goes on,” explains the CEO of Praisem Worldwide Publishing and Entertainment.

But according to Stephens, who is now open for 2017 bookings, being petty and concentrating on others’ flaws is counter-productive, which is why she teaches women to “do a self-evaluation to discover the true you.”

“We are sometimes our worst enemy,” she says. “It’s time for us to change our thought process about who we are. Once we do that, perhaps we will then see others in a different light with no shade.”

Women would be well-served to heed Stephens’ advice.

Her choice to focus on her own God-given talents, while remaining kind to others, has catapulted her to great heights. Stephens is the creator of the wildly popular Cherisse’s Dip gourmet spinach dip. She recently launched the new accompanying product line of chef’s hats, aprons and t-shirts called 2 Scoops of Patience. Stephens has also authored the book series: How to Be God’s Cover-Girl; W.O.W. Word On Wednesday; and The F.A.B. Life – Favored And Blessed.

A well-known media personality, she has hosted TBN’s “Praise The Lord,” WATC’s flagship TV program, “Atlanta Live,” and appeared as a guest on The Word Network, TCT, Impact TV, as well as many other networks.

Stephens is ready to teach you how to live the shade-free life, make your own mark, and shine for Christ.

Follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
