We’re so excited to announce our April 2017 NiaMagazine.com Book Club selection:

Exponential Living® – Stop Spending 100% of Your Time on 10% of Who You Are by Sheri Riley. With a Foreword By USHER.

When Sheri Riley was a young girl in Kentucky, she told everyone that when she grew up she would work at a record label and live in Atlanta. No one believed her, but through hard work, persistence, and prayer, Sheri became the senior director of marketing at LaFace Records in Atlanta.

While she was there, she introduced the world to some of the most influential multi-platinum artists of the nineties including TLC, Toni Braxton, and Usher. Sheri was successfully living out the dream she expressed so many years ago – and then she gave it all up.

Sheri may have been successful by most people’s standards, but she wasn’t happy.

She was spending all her time on work and she had no time or energy to devote to anything else. This realization eventually led her to the principles that became the foundation for EXPONENTIAL LIVING, a guide to making the most out of your whole life, not just your work life.

Exponential Living® is about pursuing peace, choosing clarity, and living courageously.

It features interviews with Actor/Rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, TV/Film Producer Will Packer, syndicated radio personality Bert Weiss, Actor Boris Kodjoe, Actor Nicole Ari Parker, Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell, CEO of John Maxwell Co. Mark Cole, retired NBA player/Philanthropist Darrell Griffith, and retired NFL player Peerless Price, to name a few.


Her proven, transformational program provides practical solutions that empower people to:

  • Remove the separation between who you are what you do
  • Set priorities based on what you truly desire not just financial goals
  • Identify the steps that move you when you feel stuck in the life you created
  • Give yourself permission to stop, evaluate, and change course, if needed
  • Identify and remove the mental, emotional, and physical distractions that steal your time
