Leadership is Influence

Shelly Bays is an entrepreneur and advocate for living a life of significance. She is an internationally certified Speaker, Trainer and Coach with the John Maxwell Team and 14 yearveteran with the Aflac insurance company. Shelly brings the leadership principles of the worlds leading expert on leadership development, John C. Maxwell, to life through her work with entrepreneurs, teams, and individuals.

With over 30 years experience as an entrepreneur building successful businesses and teams in multiple industries; having been the leader of multiple volunteer organizations, and having served two terms as a school board member and Board President in Lansing, Kansas, she brings personal experience and lessons learned to her clients in a way that helps them engage, discover, grow and empower themselves and others.

With a passion for empowering women, Shelly’s philosophy is to help build others up so that they can live the life that they desire. By becoming intentional about personal growth, and developing leadership and empowerment skills, she believes in the “power of multiplication” and that by helping others to reach their maximum potential, we can change the world.

As a wife, Mom of 7, Grandmother of 5 ½, Fur Mom to 1 rescue dog, and entrepreneur, she enjoys spending her “spare” time attending her children’s sporting and school events, riding “Lola” (Harley Davidson motorcycle) with her husband Alan, traveling, camping, any kind of new adventure, enjoys a glass of wine on occasion and writing.

Forget the trick and give a treat by donating at The Russell Company Blood Drive, Monday, Oct. 31 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at 2506 Covington St., West Lafayette, IN.
