Shari Hughson

spirited and bold.


How a life full of extreme adventure, survival through instinct, and entrepreneurship led to an evolutionary experience and a unique perspective on humankind’s greatest survival instinct.


From a boardroom to the bush and back again.

I have lived a life full of extremes and it has undoubtedly contributed to my rare perspective on life. I have been successful in the capitalist world and also lived an environmentalist’s dream. I’ve been an entrepreneur, intrapreneur, social advocate and innovator and I have grown profitable businesses from 0 to M’s. I have the mind of an entrepreneur, the heart of a nurse and the spirit of an adventurer.

Life is an evolution. I’ve been a pioneer and a business woman. I’ve lived with comfort and with bare survival essentials. It’s through that journey which I have discovered that the best solutions are often down an entirely new path.
