“The Bold, Brave and Beautiful (BBB) Movement is a time of networking, motivation and fellowship for women business owners and high level women in business”, says Ms. Royal Brown. We are honored that Ms. Ernestine has partnered with us to launch her first book, and I am confident the ladies who are attending will be blessed by her journey to fitness.”

“I am so happy to see this book finally be available so that women and men can be inspired to get fit at any age. I started my journey at fifty-six, so I know it can be done, and there are no excuses for not making the most of the time you have here,” says Shepherd. “If my book does one thing, I hope it inspires people to get outside and move.”

The book is being released two months before her 80th birthday and will certainly serve as an inspiration to those of all ages, but especially those who are middle aged or in their retirement years, who don’t want to believe their best years are ahead of them.

Segment I – USA (April, 2016 – November, 2016
