PH - 61 | Shelli Varela | How To Think Like A Possibility Hacker

How To Think Like A Possibility Hacker 

This time around I interviewed Shelli Varela, first female firefighter in Canada’s 6th largest city. Graced the tedx stage twice, podcast host of the yes effect podcast.

She embodies the path hunters spirit, and what she calls the possibility hacking, deciding that she wanted to pursue a career of a firefighter but at the time there were not female fiire fighters. Later on she asked herself a question “why not me?” The only catch was Shelli is 5’2” and 108lbs. That didn’t stop here though she was determined and after 1162 days later she became a full fledged firefighter.

 

A huge thing that Shelli mentioned is that it was her ability to constantly say yes and decided to take action which enabled her to do so much. She was living, breathing and visualizing every single day of that phone telling her she got the job as a firefighter.

Then it dawned on her, she has cracked the formula and did the impossible, she became a firefighter and this exact same power helped her stand in front on stage and gave 2 TEDx talks. She calls it possibility hacking.

Shortly after that she created the Yes Effect podcast where she interviews entrepreneurs, and people who just constantly said yes to their dreams and their lives and now helps other women empower themselves to live their dreams.

She is actually featured on Chris Guillebeau’s book – Born For This

I really loved interviewing Shelli as she dropped amazing insights and hearing her journey, her challenges and struggles but the point of it all was that she overcame and beat the odds.
