Sheree Fletcher Talks Positivity - Page 3
Sheree: It’s something that I’ve absolutely given consideration to doing. I think that you can do anything and everything that you want to do in life; you just have to be careful of the timing. I started a business when my son was about three-years old. I had a business partner, and we had a small fashion line. It was my first business venture, so I didn’t understand what it took to run a business – the time commitment, the research, the energy level that it takes.
I had to make a choice because I had a little kid at home, something has to give. I can’t give my child 100% and the business 100%. Something has to suffer. So, I made a choice. It’s different if you have to get out there and provide for your children – you have to put food on the table, a roof over their heads and keep the lights on. That’s not something I had to do, that was already being take care of. So, I decided to be a full-time mom and give Trey (her and Will's son) what he needs. I put everything else on the backburner. I knew one day that the right timing, I would have the opportunity to do things. That opportunity is now. The skincare thing was a fluke; I never stopped and thought that I wanted to do skincare. Now, that it’s working out – I think I want to try some different things.
Bryan: How much of what you do in the eyes of the public is influenced by the fact that you’re a mom?
Sheree: For me, that is first and foremost. Everything that I do is filtered through the fact that I’m a mom first and foremost. I ask the question – how will this decision that I make affect my child? I understand that I don’t live in a vacuum, the things that I do will affect him. I want my son to be honored by his mom, I want the things that I do to make him proud and I want him to hold his head up high and really be proud of the things that I do, the choices that I make and the woman that I am.
Bryan: That’s cool. Again, to touch on the positivity – you, being a woman of faith and being on a reality TV show where you and other women have moved on from situations that might not have been the best things for you at the time – despite how high profile these men might have been, the situation didn’t work out the way that everyone hoped it would. You’ve moved on and shown everyone that there can be a new beginning after an end. There is a future and there is letting go. Beyond that, what is it that you hope that young women will receive from all that you do?Continued on the next page
