Shelley Streit is a passionate entrepreneur, speaker, financial advisor, and author. Known for her sincerity and candid, but non-judgmental style, Shelley is a sassy dynamo who gets fired up by empowering women to live life to its full potential. Experience drawn from a difficult life as a youth taught her the value of learning, making tough but intelligent choices, and hard work.
Before authoring Beyond the Rear View Mirror, Shelley initially began empowering people by teaching them how “living in the black (financially speaking) is sexy!” Shelley first discovered her passion for finance in 2003 and moved on to educate others about cash flow and debt management in 2010. Now, as the CEO of Guiding Light Financial and the founder of The Cash Creator program, Shelley has been featured numerous times in local newspapers such as the Calgary Herald and The Beacon, national industry publications like Advisors Edge, and online at Advisor.ca.
Apart from her accomplishments in the financial world, Shelley was a nominee for the Fierce Woman of the Year Award (Phenomenal Female Category), sponsored by MOM Magazine, holds a diploma in Correctional Services, is a member of the Kinettes, and is the founder of the Real Growth Retreat for Women in Business.
Shelley feels she lives a rich life by design with her husband, Ron, and two boys, Chase and Wyatt, on the family farm in Stettler, Alberta.
