Gresham Harkless 0:26

Hello, hello, hello! This is Gresham from the I AM CEO Podcast and I have a very special guest on the show today. I have Sherrell Mooretucker of sherrellmooretucker.com. Sherrell, it's awesome to have you on the show.

Sherrell Mooretucker 0:36

Thank you so much for having me, Gresham.

Gresham Harkless 0:38

Yeah, no problem. Super excited to have you on. And what I wanted to do before we jumped right in is just read a little bit more about you so people can hear about all the awesome things that you've been able to accomplish. And Sherelle is a speaker, author, trainer, and trauma-informed wellness expert who specializes in leadership and stress management, a proud military veteran who fights for the well-being of others, draws upon her more than 10 years of experience in human resources, yoga, and natural health and her adventures in the military when delivering impactful and transformative wellness presentations. Sherrell, are you ready to speak to the I AM CEO Community?

[restrict paid=”true”] 

Sherrell Mooretucker 1:11

I am!

Gresham Harkless 1:12

Awesome, let's do it. The first question I had was to hear a little bit more about what I call your CEO story. And what led you to start your business

Sherrell Mooretucker 1:15

Wow, my CEO story actually started while I was still on active duty. I didn't know it at the time. But it was the beginning of the story. So while I was on active duty, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis. And that led me into the wellness community, mind you, I've always been a very active person drawn to running dance, and the arts, but I never really engaged in anything that was kind of a slow pace, such as yoga. And so my doctor recommended that I give it a try.

And that was my introduction to the wellness space. And I loved it so much that I wanted to teach. So I began to get my certifications to teach yoga. And that kind of led me to why don't I kind of, you know, turn this into a business and that like open up an array of different things along with the skill set that already had an HR, my military background, I began to see other ways that I could teach wellness, but also teach leaders and people in corporate industries as well.

Gresham Harkless 2:20

Awesome, awesome, awesome! So it seems like you've been able to take that traumatic experience. Yeah, that frustration. And it kind of happened, I guess, for a reason when you kind of look back at it, and it helps you to kind of redirect to what you're doing. So I know you've touched on it a little bit. But I wanted to drill a little bit deeper to hear how you're helping to support the clients that you're working with.

Sherrell Mooretucker 2:37

Yeah, absolutely. So I have clients in different industries, whether it's the community efforts, and so the way that I help them is through coaching through teaching different yoga programs and offering wellness presentations, whether it's through organizations, community organizations, or churches, providing that information in a way and in a language that people understand and they can apply it. And then I also have a quart more of a corporate offering where I go into corporate settings and help people to realize that they can have the Zin right in their corporate setting, help them get more information on how stress impacts the team and its leaders and how they can find some very holistic and simple tools for decreasing that stress for increased productivity in the workplace.

So I look at it as you know, I deal with people in the community, those people that may have time and energy and space in their calendar to come out for yoga classes or wellness presentations. And then I'm also a part of that world that is in the workspace. You know, I still work for the federal government full-time. And I know what that's like when you don't necessarily have the time. And so I love those opportunities where a business will bring me into a corporate space. And I can share with people how they can still have those amazing stress-relieving benefits in the workplace, and how it will benefit them based on whatever projects they're working on at work.

Gresham Harkless 4:05

You might have already touched on this. But I wanted to ask you for what I call your secret sauce. And this could be for you or your organization, but it's what you feel kind of sets you apart.

Sherrell Mooretucker 4:12

I think what sets me apart is I think that a great thing is that a speaker is someone that serves their community or serves in corporate industries, what makes me is a combination of my secret sauces, and my diverse backgrounds, so people are very surprised. I will say people in the corporate industry are very surprised that I'm a prior military. But I will say that if there's any time that there are military personnel out when I'm doing a presentation or speaking on something, they can always tell because you still carry some of that military mindset with you even when you're presenting and so I think the military in addition to the spirits that I had and human resources with the federal government and to top it off, I'm a yoga instructor and a meditation teacher. I bring an array of wellness components to leadership and to wellness, I bring some of those leadership components as well. And so I think that I have a really good diverse background to understand people in the military, people in corporate, and people that may be working inside the home in their community as well.

Gresham Harkless 5:20

Absolutely. And I feel like that's also where, you know, some great innovations happen as well to in different perspectives, because you are able to marry those different things. And so one, because people are kind of thinking these things are siloed here where it's only best, you can only be stressed out at work, but in reality, you can incorporate some of these wellness attributes and practices into your overall workplace.

Sherrell Mooretucker 5:41

Absolutely. I mean, I have the amazing benefit of teaching weekly yoga classes to people that are dealing with some type of stress or trauma. And let me just say this when it comes to trauma, I think that as a society, we are moving more to a place where people understand that trauma isn't just quoted, unquote, PTSD, like your trauma, could be all of a sudden, you're an empty nester. And you're like, What is my life purpose like my kids are gone, it could be a divorce, it could be the death of someone in a family, it could be moving to a new city or state or country. All of those things can be traumatic in nature, anything that shifts or there's an upheaval of your norm. And so I believe that in doing community classes, I can speak to that as someone that is prior military and used to moving around and dealing with different things.

Even my health ailment was, you know, traumatic because I've never dealt with something where all of a sudden, my mobility was limited and ineffective. In addition to working in the military, I know what that life is, like, I know some of the woes and some of the things that come with that lifestyle. And then I also work for the federal government. So I know what it is to be a leader to be a supervisor or a team lead, and you're working on projects, and you're in service through the federal government. And so I think that that makes my job so exciting.

Gresham Harkless 7:04

Yeah, absolutely.

Sherrell Mooretucker 7:04

I mean, just meeting people are at different points in their life.

Gresham Harkless 7:08

Awesome, awesome, awesome. And now I wanted to switch gears a little bit and ask you for what I call a CEO hack. And this might be an app, a book, or a habit that you have, but it's something that makes you more effective and efficient.

Sherrell Mooretucker 7:18

Well, I know, it may sound cliche, but this is something that has really been helpful for me. And I want to do a caveat to that even when I say it. So I think that is very important for people to know that they have the power, and they can make the choice to set the course of their day. And part of that is to engage in some type of meditative or reflective moment, at the very start of your day. That can be devotion or scripture, reading some type of sacred book or affirmation, because I found that in not doing that, I felt like I was kind of like left to the whims of the day versus establishing some things at the onset.

And along with that, that comes with not plugging directly into social media at the beginning of the morning. So I tried to really allow my morning time and not the entire morning, but a portion of it to be very, very sacred so that I can really set the course for my day. And I found that that has been most helpful so that when things happen during the course of the day, I'm not kind of tossing here and there. I always go back to my why my establish affirmation or scripture or that thing that grounds me, regardless of what happens during the day.

Gresham Harkless 8:33

Absolutely. And that makes perfect sense. It's funny, a lot of times when you start out your day, with being, I too meditate, you know, at the very beginning of the day, sometimes you can have the world just, you know, dump everything on your doorstep and you realize and forget exactly like what you're doing each and every day and what your why is and how it all kind of fits together.

Sherrell Mooretucker 8:53

Yeah, I mean, just starting out with just speaking something positive or affirming to yourself in the mirror or sitting down and just taking that time for yourself to say, this is you know, this is my goal for the day. This is what I expect out of myself. And mind you, it doesn't have to necessarily be goal-oriented, but it can be more of an intention. I intend to, you know, respond with kindness as much as I can today. I expect to remember my why with everything that I do everything that I touch, and I think that makes our lives just more meaningful when we can start out with it.

Now mind you, it doesn't have to be like hours and hours on end. Like you know, the wellness industry is like a billion-dollar industry now and you can fall into that mindset that you have to do all these elaborate things like you got to burn the incense and get the candles right. And then you have to have on the right clothes, but it really is just about saying I'm gonna take five minutes before I log on to my email, my social media accounts to just check in with myself How am I feeling? How am I doing? What is my why? What am I expecting today,?And to be able to be reflected on those little things that happened during the day. And then when you go out, I believe that you have a clearer path, more focus, as you engage with people and you go about your life business.

Gresham Harkless 10:14

Now, I wanted to ask you for what I call a CEO nugget. And this is a word of wisdom or piece of advice. Or if you can happen to be a time machine, what would you tell your younger business self?

Sherrell Mooretucker 10:23

Wow, I have always had an issue with time. Time, in the sense of, I feel like I'm running out of time. And you know, this started really early, like, I can remember being a 15-year-old, and I'm a 90s kid. And I can remember watching a different world. And from that time of like, 15-16 years old, my aspiration was, I gotta hurry up and get to college because it's going to be just like a different world. And I can remember looking back at my younger self now, and being in such a hurry to grow up and live this life, that I miss some key moments in my childhood. So what I would tell my younger self? And what I continue to tell myself now is, there is enough time, there is beauty in the journey, and your journey is unique to you.

And part of that uniqueness also incorporates time, so where it looks like your counterparts may be just sailing through with no issues, time is relative. And so that's one of my nuggets to just pace yourself. I can remember when I first started going into business for myself, and you want to have the website perfect, and all your social media handles perfect. And what I've learned and being in business for myself for the past couple of years is you evolve as a person, give yourself the time and the space to continue to evolve and your business will also evolve with you. And it's okay to rebrand. It's okay to say, okay, it's time to sunset, that particular thing and to move to something else. Because we're always evolving, we're always moving. And so that piece of advice is to give yourself time.

Gresham Harkless 12:03

Awesome, awesome, awesome. I love that piece of advice, if you see my younger business self to also tell him that as well, too, because that's a great piece of knowledge and information and a great reminder that we all need to remember CEOs.

Sherrell Mooretucker 12:14

Yeah, I think so.

Gresham Harkless 12:16

And now I wanted to ask you my absolute favorite question, which is the definition of what it means to be a CEO. And we're hoping to have different, quote-unquote, CEOs on the show. So, Sherrell, I want to ask you what does being a CEO means to you.

Sherrell Mooretucker 12:26

For me being a CEO means really just working for your purpose. And it doesn't necessarily mean that it has to equate to money, it could equate to being a CEO and your community where you're making an impact in your community through service, public service, or private service. And so that's what I would say, you know, is really about finding out what your life's purpose is. I actually have a business coach that I work with, and she is helping me to cultivate a life purpose statement. And that doesn't necessarily mean that it mimics exactly what you're doing for your business or your community. But what are those things that you are purposed to do that you do very easily it flows from you without any effort, that is your purpose. And you can walk in your purpose, and an array of different paths and just allow yourself to have the openness to explore those different paths, I really think is about purpose. And sometimes we confuse purpose with what we're good at.

Sometimes we can start something and we develop a skill set because we do it over and over again. But that doesn't necessarily mean that that's an indicator of your purpose. And so I believe that if you don't know what your purpose is, you should take some time, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, to really just take a reflective look at your life, even going back to your childhood. And what were some of those things that came naturally to you, whether it was caring for animals, and it was something that you always wanted to do, whether it was caring for people, or maybe you were always teaching someone something, there is an I believe that purpose is cultivated, and it appears in children. And so if we will take a moment to go back to our childhoods, and sometimes before the world gets a hold of us and everything we do is generated or focused on money, we will see what our true purpose is in this world.

Gresham Harkless 14:20

Absolutely. That's definitely a powerful message and a great reminder for us CEOs and entrepreneurs and business owners. Great reminder and I truly appreciate you for sharing that with us.

Sherrell Mooretucker 14:28

Yeah, thanks. I appreciate it.

Gresham Harkless 14:30

No problem. And what I wanted to do was pass you the mic just to see if there was anything additional. You want to let our readers and our listeners know, and then how best they can get a hold of you.

Sherrell Mooretucker 14:39

Yeah, I mean, I would just say that I understand that someone that has maybe never stepped foot in this industry and you look at it from afar. It can seem very scary. It's a lot going on whether you're like how do I start meditating? How do I start yoga when I feel like I'm maybe not the right size? I'm too old. I'm not flexible. All of those things come up when you want to make it change. And so what I would encourage anyone to do is to use 2019 to explore those uncharted territories, just step outside of your comfort zone. And you'd be surprised at how your wellness is impacted. Because one, you're stepping outside of your comfort zone, you feel that invigoration and that rush of wow, I'm doing something brand new.

And two, you may find a whole other group of people that you wouldn't have found otherwise, that can be a great source of support for you. And so I just want to offer that to people that are like, Where do I even start in this wellness journey? I want to be well, I want to live well, I'm stressed out but I don't even know where to start. And I say start with whatever your personality is, what are those things that bring you joy, and then step outside of your comfort zone and step into that world.

But I wanted to drill a little bit deeper to hear how you're helping to support the clients that you're working with.

Sherrell Mooretucker 2:37

Yeah, absolutely. So I have clients in different industries, whether it's the community efforts, and so the way that I help them is through coaching through teaching different yoga programs and offering wellness presentations, whether it's through organizations, community organizations, or churches, providing that information in a way and in a language that people understand and they can apply it.

For me being a CEO means really just working in your purpose. And it doesn't necessarily mean that it has to equate to money, it could equate to being a CEO and your community where you're making impact in your community through service, through public service or private service. And so that's what I would say, you know, is really about finding out what your life's purpose is. I actually have a business coach that I work with, and she is helping me to cultivate a life purpose statement. And that doesn't necessarily mean that it mimics exactly what you're doing your business or your community. But what are those things that you are purposed to do that you do very easily it flows from you without any effort, that is your purpose. And you can walk in your purpose, and an array of different paths and just allow yourself to have the openness to explore those different paths, I really think is about purpose. And sometimes we confuse purpose with what we're good at. Sometimes we can start something and we develop a skill set, because we do it over and over again. But that doesn't necessarily mean that that's an indicator of your purpose. And so I believe that if you don't know what your purpose is, that you should take some time, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, to really just take a reflective look at your life, even going back to your childhood. And what were some of those things that came naturally to you, whether it was caring for animals, and it was something that you always wanted to do, whether it was caring for people, or maybe you were always teaching someone something, there is a I believe that purpose is cultivated, and it appears in children. And so if we will take a moment to go back to our childhoods, and sometimes before the world gets a hold of us and we everything we do is generated or focused on money, we will see what our true purpose is in this world.

Absolutely. That's definitely a powerful message and a great reminder for us CEOs and entrepreneurs and business owners. Great reminder, and I truly appreciate you for sharing that with us.

Sherrell Mooretucker 14:28

Yeah, thanks. I appreciate it.

Gresham Harkless 14:30

No problem. And what I wanted to do was pass you the mic just to see if there was anything additional. You want to let our readers and our listeners know, and then how best they can get a hold of you.

Yeah, I mean, I would just say that I understand that someone that has maybe never stepped foot in this industry and you look at it from afar. It can seem very scary. It's a lot going on whether you're like how do I start meditating? How do I start yoga and I feel like I'm maybe not the right size. I'm too old. I'm not flexible. All of those things come up when you want to make it change. And so what I would encourage anyone to do is to use 2019 to explore those uncharted territories, just step outside of your comfort zone. And you'd be surprised at how your wellness is impacted. Because one, you're stepping outside of your comfort zone, you feel that invigoration and that rush of wow, I'm doing something brand new. And two, you may find a whole another group of people that you wouldn't have found otherwise, that can be a great source of support for you. And so I just want to offer that to people that are like, Where do I even start in this wellness journey? I want to be well, I want to live well, I'm stressed out but I don't even know where to start. And I say start with whatever your personality is, what are those things that bring you joy, and then step outside of your comfort zone and step into that world.
