Shelby Scarbrough has led an interesting career throughout her life and shares some of her lucky breaks, biggest regrets, her struggle with perfectionism, and more in this week’s episode!

Shelby began her career in the White House as a member of President Ronald Reagan’s advance team, where she helped coordinate such landmark events as the Reagan-Gorbachev Moscow summit and economic summits in Germany, Italy, and Japan. In 1990, Shelby founded Practical Protocol, LLC, a company that plans bespoke events for foreign dignitaries such as Nelson Mandela, Pope John Paul II, Lech Walesa, and more.

Shelby had an unusual start working in her family’s Burger King Franchise and worked in every single role at Burger King that you could possibly imagine. Growing up in an entrepreneurial job daily taught her a lot about life at an early age, and it seemed quite natural to create her own path when she left college.

What were some of the foundational lessons Shelby learned when she was working at the White House? Treat everyone you work with with kindness and respect. You never know where those people will go and grudges carry a lot of burden because it can be quite a small world.
