Let Your Adventure Begin!

Amazing Inspirational People!

Explore the stories of our real-life heroes who have relaunched their lives for something more important. 

We're just getting started - MORE TO COME SOON!

Heather J. MacKenzie: Fortune 10 Executive Transforming Human Connections
Living the life of a powerful Fortune 10 healthcare executive, Heather was the very definition of success. However, she knew that her purpose in life was something greater.

A workplace sexual assault radically shook her world. Rejecting a 7-figure settlement, Heather dove into a new life, focused on how to give voice to the marginalized and so much more!
Katie Zombro: Engineering Superstar to Girls-In-STEM Advocate
Katie Zombro left university with a degree in electrical engineering and within a year was managing projects all around the world, but something was tugging deep inside her. She wanted to do something more important.

In engineering school, she was often the only female in her classes. Her experience is driving her to advocate for girls in STEM and looking for opportunities to improve education for all kids.
Phil Cerdorian: Cigarette Sales to Psychotherapy
Phil left university with what many graduates dream of - a good paying job. He was wearing suits, driving a company car, and enjoying an expense account. But something wasn't right.

Phil ditched the job, headed to Mardi Gras, bounced to Florida, then to a beach in Jamaica. In his search to find who he really was, he joined a Yoga Ashram. Decades later, Phil's life is dedicated to helping others.

Seeking Real-Life Heroes

Are you someone who has made a radical change in your life and veered away from the "normal" model of life?

We want to hear your story!

You might not know it, but someone is watching, amazed by the life that you are living, and wanting to understand how you did it. 

Please contact us for information on how your story, or the story of someone you know, can become part of The Priority Paradigm.

About This Project

What makes someone step away from the narrative of how our lives should be lived?

You know, the story that begins with good grades to get into a good college to land that first job, and then move up the ladder, buy the big house, marry and produce those 2.5 beautiful children, while saving for a far-off retirement that may never happen.

This project seeks to discover why and how these real-life heroes break free of that mold to follow a different path to happiness and a fulfilling life.

A Message From Shea Oliver

Those cubicle walls can feel like prison bars. Whether you dream of sailing around the world, starting your own business, or pursuing something bigger than yourself, someone has gone before you. I want to share their stories.

After 15 years as an unconventional entrepreneur, I'm launching this new project to explore amazing folks who have made a radical change in life to do something that brings them a deeper sense of fulfillment and authentic happiness. I'll be sharing their stories on social media, here on this website, and eventually in a book. 

I hope you'll follow along. Who knows what adventures await you!!!
