Berried In Chocolate

Berried in Inspiration Shari Fitzpatrick Speaks

Now Scheduling Appearances for Berry Motivational Tour


Somerset, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/26/2014 -- Shari Fitzpatrick (, an accredited member of the National Speaking Association (NSA), has just announced the launch of her 2015 limited engagement Berry Motivational Speaking Tour. Shari, creator of world’s famous line of gourmet-dipped strawberries, Shari’s Berries, and author of the book “Berried in Chocolate” is currently booking the few remaining spots on the tour in which she motivates other entrepreneurs, students, and business people to follow their dreams and never give up.

"She was the feather in our cap and the savior of the day," stated Kimberly Vaughn, Executive Producer of the Modesto Women’s Expo. "The women who came to hear her speak were inspired, impressed and empowered. That is exactly what we were going for and her presence drove that home."

It's been twenty-five years since, at the age of 25, without any business education or experience, a young Shari, armed only with a $1,500 cash advance and a lot of passion, turned a hobby and her passion of chocolate dipped strawberries into the worlds’ famous $33 million dollar brand, “Shari’s Berries”.

In 2011, after putting faith in the wrong person, Shari lost her company and began an emotional journey that taught her the importance of family, faith and how having God as her business partner would enrich her with a fruitful life - experiences which she captivatingly shares with her audiences.

“My story would be really boring if I hadn’t gone full circle," relates Fitzpatrick warmly. "I’ve experienced the great times and the most painful times. I've grieved losing a company that I created and like I would grieve losing one of my 3 sons."

Passionately, she continues, "We learn the most and become stronger, building character during the difficult times in our lives. Not when we don’t have a care in the world and life is easy.”

Shari’s story and her creations have attracted international attention through appearances in O Magazine, on the Today Show, on the Food Network, The Apprentice, in People Magazine, In Style Magazine, on The Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune, QVC, HSN and featured in Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneurial Soul. Shari also has a new berry company under the brand Berried In Chocolate and lives with her family in Somerset, CA, which is located in the Fairplay Wine Region of California’s Sierra Foothills, and which has inspired her new award winning venture SHARI’S GRAND RESERVE label wines – big bold reds and also available chocolate dipped.

Shari’s Chocolate Dipped Passion shows up everywhere Shari speaks along with her berries, which she brings for all in attendance.
