The internet is a virtual world crowded by billions of people, some searching to be the next internet sensation, while others are seeking to connect. Then, there are individuals like Shadé Y. Adu who are taking the internet by storm by being an example of what it means to combine intelligence, willpower, failure, success, and strategy to live out their dreams every single day.
I have been following Shadé for quite some time on social media. Shadé’s ingenuity and realness are what I love most about her. There are too many people on Facebook Boulevard who pretend to live a perfect life, but not Shadé Y. Adu. This radiant woman shows up in such an authentic way, sharing her failures and wins so that people can know the truth of what it takes to be a successful and active participant in creating the life they always wanted. For these reasons, I had to tip my crown to her and celebrate her journey to fulfill her God-given purpose.
Shadé Y. Adu is an international speaker and personal brand strategist. She was born and raised in Irvington, New Jersey, but currently resides in Madison, Wisconsin. Shadé is the CEO of Savvy Solutions Consulting. Her consulting company provides exceptional branding and marketing solutions for entrepreneurs, particularly women entrepreneurs, so that they can create their first $1,000 to first $100,000 online.
Savvy Solutions Consulting firm came to fruition when Shadé realized the great need to help individuals struggling to live to their fullest potential. She started out as a life coach and has transitioned to helping people succeed in their life and business. Shadé’s commitment to the success of her clients has positioned her to become a highly sought-after consultant. Her clientele consists of multimillion dollar clients as well as those who are just stepping into the world of entrepreneurship. No matter where you are on your journey, Shadé has the tools and know-how needed to take you to your next level of greatness.
Being an affluent business owner doesn’t come without hurdles though. Currently, Shadé is a full-time entrepreneur, doctoral student, and traveling speaker, and there is a constant battle to appropriately allocate her time and energy. However, she would rather have the struggle of choosing how much time to give to her dreams than to not live them at all. I have no idea how she does it, but the girl is rocking it out with the twenty-four hours we are given.
Shadé is not only showing up big in the marketplace but also in the educational arena. Becoming 1 of 20,000 worldwide Gates Scholars was a monumental achievement for Shadé. As a Gates Scholar, opportunities began to come to her at an alarming rate. Her desire to learn and teach has continuously positioned this astonishing woman to become a business mogul.
Shadé is not only seeking to change the lives of women but also young girls. She is determined to be an inspiration to young girls in her community of Irvington, New Jersey, and worldwide. Shadé wants those coming behind her to know that traveling the world, making money, and making the world a better place is possible if they believe in themselves and take action. She also believes that your surroundings don’t have to determine your future, but you hold the keys to your success.
As she is inspiring and supporting others, Shadé has her own support team that constantly pushes her to be all of who God created her to be. Her biggest supporter is her mother. Her mother’s hard work, faithfulness, and out-of-the-box personality inspire Shadé daily. Thank you, Mrs. Adu, for encouraging your daughter, who in return encourages the rest of us to be the best versions of ourselves!
With so much wisdom flowing through her, Shadé’s greatest advice to women pursuing their dreams is this:
Just #ADUit. Go for your dreams because you deserve happiness. Don’t worry about what others say about you and allow God to use you as a vessel. Take that leap of faith and make it happen.
Shadé is on a mission to leave her mark on this world. She desires for her legacy to consist of her leaving her family with generational wealth and for the world to know she was here and made a difference that lives beyond her.
In the words of Shadé Y. Adu, “Love your life, and enjoy every moment!”
