New York City born, but Philadelphia, PA bred, Cheryl A. Pullins is no stranger to challenges. Adopted at the age of two, shot by a stray bullet at the age of nine, at the age of twelve she found out her neighbor’s children were her younger siblings, met her biological mother at the age of eighteen and was previously a pastor's wife for fourteen years, Cheryl knows what it takes to overcome and transform lives because she started with her own. For more than twenty years Cheryl worked in Corporate Human Resources, but had an epiphany that because of her personal experiences she was to make a bigger contribution and have a greater impact on the lives of others and leave an imprint on the world.
She took a leap of faith and started her own business. In less than two years she became a respected voice for women who beat the odds and turned lemons into lemonade. Cheryl has received both national and international recognition for her work and commitment to working with women entrepreneurs and professionals to help them produce rewarding results in their personal and professional lives. Cheryl is the internationally acclaimed Founder and CEO of Awesome Lifestyle, LLC, Certified Coach, and an Amazon Bestselling Author.
Cheryl is also a frequently sought after speaker in the areas of life management, leadership, social media, strategic planning, marketing and business start-up. She has been featured in numerous magazines and as a guest expert on a long list of radio shows. Her greatest joy is being a wife, mom and grandmom to four "grandgirls."
