The YES Effect
Summary: Shelli Varela is no stranger to possibility hacking. She overcame many obstacles when she was hired 22 years ago as her city's first female firefighter. More remarkable than this, was her starting point. As an artist weighing in at a mere 108 lbs, she made a decision that she would do whatever it took to become a firefighter. After struggling daily for 1162 days, she built the skills, knowledge and experience the job required from the ground up and reverse engineered her goal. During her journey she became obsessed with the power of the mind and in particular, the transformational power of the word YES. She began to notice patterns among top achievers who accomplished bold feats and realized it was time to inspire others with their stories and to share how one simple word can impact not only a life, but the world. Welcome to The YES Effect Show.
After the 2008 recession, while living in Italy and realizing her family couldn't even afford to eat, Afton took to the Internet to find her own opportunities. What started as a humble virtual assistance gig to survive soon turned into a legitimate six-figure business that allowed her to work from home, a coffee shop, or a tiny island far, far away (she's done all three).
