We had the good fortune of connecting with Sheila Bella and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sheila, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
The beginning of 2020 I was the poorest I have ever been in year’s due to my business being shut down by the government. While I was down and my financial state was the most unstable it had ever been I saw that as a REASON (not an excuse) to SPEND the most money I ever had spent on MASTERMINDS & BUSINESS COACHING.
I didn’t have the money, so I borrowed it.
I ended 2020 with the MOST MONEY I’ve ever made, working LESS than I ever have, completely debt free and bought my dream house.


Business coaching works.
Having guidance works.
Being in community works.

The universe rewards RISK.

You are being called to show up for your future. Take a leap of faith. See the OBSTACLE as the REASON TO DO IT SOONER, not as an excuse to let life happen TO you passively.

You will NEVER feel READY.
It will NEVER not be SCARY.

When it feels scary to jump, that’s exactly when you should jump.

Otherwise you stay in the same place your whole life and that can’t do.

What should our readers know about your business?
I have an online coaching program specifically for beauty entrepreneurs. When you look at beauty professionals I think most people think they are the dumbest crew in the bunch. Most did not graduate college or have a formal education. You don’t necessarily think super successful our leader when you hear that somebody is a worker in the beauty industry. My mission is to change that. Not necessarily change it but bring forth the reality that seven figures for a beauty professional is attainable and more so normal AF! Females are killing it in the space and are taking the world by storm. My business coaching program introduces a set of strategies systems and formulas that enable the every day stylist or make up artist to take charge of their lives and create the life and business they’ve only dreamed of.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would start out with a full day at my favorite spa Burke Williams. Then I would definitely hit rodeo drive and shop for designer accessories. I whiten to get a blowout at dry bar and their make up done at Sephora. We will end the day at Catch restaurant to people watch and take pictures. That’s just the first day!
I’ve lived in Los Angeles since I was eight years old and sometimes I forget how amazing this city is.
My favorite places here are Malibu, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and in case my guests feel overstimulated by the glamour there are so many amazing hiking spots that are full of nature and beauty. The city is rich with options. No matter what mood you were in it has something to offer.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My loving and brilliant husband, Will Reusch. For being my source of growth for all things. We push on each other like two pieces of plywood to make an A frame. God only knows what I would be without him.
