Whenever people look up successful names, they always read about how those individuals started from scratch. However, most times, many parts of their stories are omitted, leaving out details about their family ties or where they came from. Shylo Eckstrom is a name that has been prevalent in the business industry and one that is sure to be remembered in history as an individual who overcame all odds to become the figure of success she is today.
While Shylo Eckstrom is an incredibly successful individual today, her background reveals that it had not always been that way. Born from trauma and alcoholism, Shylo grew up overcoming several roadblocks and setbacks. While others only pointed towards the horizon and proclaimed they would go the distance, she was already setting down her own path in silence, determined to let her actions speak for her.
Driven by a need to build the life that she wanted, Shylo studied as a dental hygienist at Lake Superior College. As she was studying, Shylo met her husband, a professional racer in Minnesota, and fell in love. Days after they brought their firstborn home, her husband lost his contract, prompting him to retire. Although she was still working and helping the family stay afloat, Shylo and her family were about to be struck with more of life’s unpleasant surprises.
After returning to work from maternity leave for a month, life’s path only took Shylo on a downhill ride. In four years, medical bills were continually knocking at their door, and the money they kept in their savings and investments were wiped. As problems continued to arise, life would throw them into half a million dollars debt. Once again, Shylo Eckstrom felt like she had rolled back the years with heavier burdens. However, she was given another option, which would turn the tides and propel her to gain everything she always dreamed of.
Since then, every problem Shylo ever encountered slowly unloaded from her back. Today she is the owner of several million-dollar businesses and is gradually establishing herself as a public speaker. Shylo now represents a global clean living company whose mission is to help entrepreneurs rediscover their voice and attain financial freedom. The company she works for leads the Collagen sciences industry, offering clean living and gray water safe products delivered to their customers’ doors.
Shylo Eckstrom is currently working at the next level in her new company, reaching global profit sharing and supporting the multi-million dollar team. Additionally, Shylo plans to expand her brand into the beauty and fashion line and has real estate as her next venture. She recently started hosting a podcast called Grit & Grace, highlighting high figure entrepreneurs and conversing with people who go through real grit daily.
As Prince says, “We are just trying to get through this thing called life.” Shylo takes the artists’ words to heart, sharing what she has taken and overcome with her listeners and followers.
