New Alberta author launches book


March 8, 2012 (Stettler, AB) Entrepreneur, financial advisor and now author, Stettler, Alberta’s own Shelley Streit will be launching her book Beyond the Rearview Mirror on April 11th at the One Eleven Grill in Red Deer, Alberta from 6 pm – 9 pm.

This debut book is the inspiring story of Shelley’s life – full of detours and hurdles. Beyond the Rearview Mirror is the story of how Shelley defied the odds of success after experiencing abandonment by her own mother, repeated rejection and abuse, all combined with the experience of going through the child welfare system.

Excerpt: To this day, I don’t know why I believed her. I was smarter than that. But after everything we’d gone through, I still hoped this was an attempt to make peace with me, to finally give me the attention I wanted and so badly deserved. But instead of the mall, my mom dropped me off at Child Welfare and left me there.

While she easily could have slipped into a less than desirable life she chose to forge ahead, instead she rose above it all and has since achieved multiple successes in life, business and love.

“I wrote this book to inspire women to push through their circumstances and reach for the success that is on the other side,” says Streit. “Everyone has a story. The desire and willingness to change your mindset is what sets apart those who thrive after the fact and those who seem to be a victim of their circumstances.”

Beyond the Rearview Mirror will soon be available at Chapters/Indigo locations and online at and on Amazon.
