About Sheila

Sheila Stewart has been referred to as a serial entrepreneur. She built her own international advertising agency from scratch with her only assets being $5,000 in savings, tenacity and her unwavering drive to succeed.

Over the years she built an award winning agency with a team of over 150. She was responsible for leading the development and launch of successful advertising and public relations campaigns throughout the U.S., Southeast Asia, Europe and Canada for such companies as Warner Bros., Hard Rock Café, Ernst & Young, Doubletree Hotels, Signator/John Hancock, Verio, Parke Davis and Telematrix.


Empower Marketing

Sheila rapidly grew her award-winning agency, and after six years she reached her COD (Crap Out Date). She realized that marketing is her gift but her passion is working with small business owners and entrepreneurs who are usually most in need of professional marketing services yet often are the most financially challenged.

She set out on a mission to create a marketing system that would empower small business owners with the comprehensive “how to” marketing support that had previously only been available to Fortune 500 companies.

In 2005, Sheila sold off her advertising agency, launched Empower Marketing and wrote a series of 24-books creating the Power-Injected™ Marketing Toolkit system that she launched throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Fueling her passion

Fueling her passion for furthering global entrepreneurship she met with the President of the United Nations in 2009 and has authored two books focused on entrepreneurship: Backwards in High Heels – A Woman’s Guide to Succeeding in Business and 99 Killer Business Ideas.

Sheila most recently created a women’s entrepreneurial and business program that provides support, access to capital, connections and the professional mentorship necessary to build a successful business no matter what economic conditions exist.
