RnS Ep 14: The Freedom of Freelance Writing & An International Perspective on Racism
Sharon Hurley Hall is a veteran freelance writer and mentor to others wanting to make their living freelancing. She’s lived all over the world and shared with us not only invaluable insight and wisdom into what it means to be a freelance writer, and the qualities required to succeed, but also shared what it means to be a black woman in different parts of the world.
In this episode of “Rise ‘n Shine! Not Just for Mornings Anymore,” we explored:
· Getting started and succeeding as a freelance writer, the lifestyle and the opportunities available
· Her recent decision to be more open about her personal experiences with racism and the response she’s received from her professional networks
· “Exploring Shadeism,” Sharon’s recent book about colorism and how it shows up in Barbados and the Caribbean
Sharon’s expertise and compassion run deep. Her ability to combine academic research with everyday language to blend knowledge and wisdom with heart and soul, make her a very unique, powerful, and wonderful human being. To learn more about her and her work, visit www.sharonhh.com.

Live Your Purpose.” She’s also a digital nomad, and co-host of the weekly radio show, “Rise ‘n Shine! Not Just for Mornings Anymore.” Her writing and conversations challenge old paradigms, bring light to dark places, and reconnect us with the WOW in our lives — our Wise One Within — opening doors to living a life that sets our soul ablaze!
As a woman who lost her way and needed the proverbial 2 x 4 as a wake up call, Lori Anne knows the journey from feeling lost to living on purpose, and mentors women through the choices and challenges along the way. A few of her personal stepping stones along the way have included overcoming abuse, raising a child with special needs, earning a Masters in Organizational Communications and Leadership, being divorced by her teenage kids, becoming a digital nomad and expanding beyond her natural introversion to do live radio.
Along with her books, Lori Ann shares a few of the diamonds she’s found to live in alignment with our heart’s call in her free series for women, Mindset Matters: Thriving Through Change. Books, links, and more are available on her website at www.LoriAnneRising.com.
