Welcome to ShelleyGoldbeck.Com
The arrogance of naming a site after myself almost convinced me not to buy the domain.
But the pragmatic marketer in me prevailed. I was surprised my name was available. I guess I’m more unique than I thought! Some folks wish they could own their name domain. All that agonizing over what I would call my brand was for nothing!
Now that the name thing is out of the way, what will you find here at ShelleyGoldbeck.com?
You’ll notice I call myself Thinker. Writer. Speaker.
Notice that Thinking comes first. For eight years I have written a blog at www.OneWomansOpinion.com where I share some of my thinking on a variety of topics.
When I started writing my blog, I began calling myself a writer. My writing career began when I was eight years old and my Halloween poem was published in the provincial scholastic magazine and read on the radio.
Over the years, I have written for business and pleasure in many media including my blog, radio, print, copywriting, songs, poems, books, and lately, writing speeches.
Finally, there’s Speaking. For seven years I have been on a journey to become a professional speaker. That included writing regularly, reading lots of books and grooming my speaking skills through Toastmasters and the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers.
I founded Accent Reduction Company( AccentReductionCompany.com) a program designed to help people with English as a Second Language reduce their accents so they can be more productive and have happier business and personal relationships.
Most recently, I’ve become a Funeral Celebrant. Fewer Canadians have religious affiliations than ever before and they need someone to help them honour and grieve their dead. I feel called to share my skills and gifts in this field.
