Are you sick and tired of others dictating your life … telling you what to say, how to act, and even how to feel? 


Do you want to break free from the past and step into a future you design?


Discover your authentic self? 

Your true passion? 

Your dreams? 


I know how you feel!

And so do my guests.


I'm Ellie Shefi.


I am a survivor of rape and domestic abuse. I’ve been homeless, lived in my car, and eaten the food restaurants were throwing away at the end of the night. For over 20 years, I’ve endured countless medical surgeries—often with little hope of survival. At my breaking point, I even begged God to just let me die. (Now that is hitting rock bottom!)


Yet, today, I am a thriver. I am a successful attorney, entrepreneur, #1 international best-selling author, sought-after international speaker, strategist, philanthropist, coach, and consultant. Many consider me a medical miracle because I’ve survived cancer, anorexia, and, for decades, have defied doctors’ death deadlines. 


You see … Like so many of us, I, too, have scars—emotional, mental, and physical. But through a lot of hard work, I have learned that I am not my scars! I have healed and moved beyond the scars and the wounds and burdens that caused them. I have cast off the chains of the past and set myself free. I no longer allow my scars to hold me back…to deny me my personal path toward a life of authenticity and abundance.


And you know what?! You are not your scars either!


If you’re sick and tired of being defined by events, circumstances, and beliefs—if you’re longing to shed past pain and rise beyond your adversities—if you’re looking for post-traumatic growth—then this podcast, You Are Not Your Scars®, is for you!


On this podcast, my guests and I show you how to shed your scars. We equip you with everything you need to find your voice, stand in your power, and become the architect of your life. We guide you in charting a new course for your journey, help you build a resilient mind, and help you develop your unique, authentic, and aligned soul signature that no one can imitate or destroy.


Joining me every episode are masters of resiliency, mindset, personal development, overcoming trauma, and more! They are here to offer you the tools, resources, and strategies you need to break free from the past and become the architect of your life and legacy!


You don’t have to face your scars alone. We will join you on your path; journey with you in your mission to take control of your life; and support you while you break the chains that hold you back from the future you truly desire.


No matter how deep your wounds are, you are resilient, unbreakable, and unstoppable. You have control over your life.


Live life on your terms today.


While you may have been forged by fire, you are free by design.


Remember: You Are Not Your Scars®!
