When one describes Grammy Shep fear would not be one of the adjectives used. She treads into areas of discussion which are headline news. Subjects like racial and gender issues; ethics; systems of justice, education and health care; the church; the media; politicians; attorneys; doctors; businessmen and women; athletes; and parents. Entwined throughout her presentation Grammy Shep addresses specific social issues including marriage and divorce, parenting, values, responsibility, obligations, and etiquette.
Judith G. Shepherd is succint, perceptive, and delightful.
It is evident that she has earned her Ph. D. in Grandmaology from

Founder/President of Charisma Pros Inc.
Judith G. Shepherd is a farm grown product of Champaign County, Illinois. She attended a one room school, was a member of 4-H, taught Sunday school, and followed the standard practices of the rural Midwest.
Following college, Judith's career took her to Indianapolis, Indiana where she met Harold "Sam" K. Shepherd. After their marriage they did the standard middle class couple things; built a home, had a son, and dreamed about retirement. Those dreams were short lived when Sam died just before their seventh wedding anniversary. Their son was five years old.
Terry Bradshaw, quarterback of the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers, once asked Judith how her company came into existence. She responded, "Desperation motivation - I had a five year old son that I wanted to personally raise. I needed to be able to house, feed, clothe, and educate him. To do both required a home-based business. I looked deep within myself, decided on what my natural talents were, and proceeded from that point. In the early 70s, it was quite a task to overcome the odds."
Shepherd not only overcame those odds, she continued to meet new challenges with the same standards of ethics and sense of responsibilities about children, family, and work place.
Grammy Shep's perspective about American life as
a female entrepreneur, a single mother, and an advocate of "good sense"
is, indeed, an interesting and fun learning experience.
