Sheila Hollingsworth-Gell

 
A Concerned American Citizen
MNN Television Producer
 

Sheila Hollingsworth is a first-generation child of European parents, who immigrated to the U.S. after World War II, 1950, with a thousand dollars a piece in their pockets, in pursuit of the American Dream. 

<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> <!--[endif]-->

Sheila's parents met in 1944.  Her father was from London, England, where he served in the British Armed Forces (Air Force & Army for seven years).  Her mother was from a small village outside of Essen, Germany and had just made her debut at the Essen Opera House, the year before the war broke out.  After the war, they went to Germany, then England, but left, Europe for Toronto, Canada, three years after the war) as the Hollingsworth's found it extremely difficult to be accepted in either country, because of each other's homeland rejected them, as  Europe tried to re-build itself after the war..  Sheila's mother could not speak English, nor find any type of work in England.  Likewise for her Father.  Despite his ability to speak fluent German, he was not welcome as an Englishman.  Even Sheila's paternal relatives did not approve of her father marrying a German national, as his mother was killed the first night of the London Blitz.  Her mother's family reacted much the same.  In 1950, her parents left Toronto, Canada by train (both being British subjects) and arrived in Grand Central Station, NYC taking their places in search of the "American Dream."  They became U. S. citizens in 1955.  Her extended family is a virtual United Nations!

<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> <!--[endif]-->

Sheila Hollingsworth was born in Newark, NJ, and raised in Cranford, NJ.  She has a rather impressive background.  She attended Union College and Rutgers University.  She began her career at Western Electric (a subsidiary of what was then known as part of the Bell System that formed AT&T, Inc.,) and went on to work in the Office of the Chairman of AT&T, until 1982, when the company was forced to reorganize and downsize (as a result of a Supreme Court decision, as it was decided that The Bell System was indeed, a monopoly).  Prior to the Court's decision, AT&T had over 1.25 million employees, making it the world's largest public employer.   Throughout her over 30-year career, she has always worked exclusively with Chairmen, Vice Chairmen, President/CEOs.

<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> <!--[endif]-->

In 1982, Sheila met her husband, Dr. Larry T. Gell, who frequently appears on "Conversations with Harold Hudson Channer."   He is an internationally renowned, executive management and strategic planning consultant, who is well connected and is active in political and foreign affairs.  Sheila & her husband are cable television producers and host their own programs: "Inside the United Nations: The Global Issues" and "Keep Skating Alive!"

<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]-->  <!--[endif]-->

After the breakup of AT&T in 1983, Sheila freelanced for six months and became an entrepreneur in her own right, as the Principal of her firm, "The Executive's Assistant."  Her client list reads not unlike: "The Who's Who: The Rainmakers, Moguls & Titans of New York City, National and International: Business, Finance, Real Estate, Entertainment, The Media, TV & Film Broadcasting & Production, Broadway; The Performance Arts; Haute Couture Fashion, Professional Sports, Publishing, Hospitality, Philanthropy, Politics and International Diplomacy."

<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]-->  <!--[endif]-->

For the past 15 years, Sheila has been working as an independent consultant, working on private projects with her clients from within: the Fortune 500s; the top ten, international investment banks; real estate developers; financial services; commercial banks; including the NYSE; NASD; Dun & Bradstreet; American Express; and Moody's Investors Services; to name just a brief list.

 

Sheila joins me to share her thoughts on not only what has happened to the State of the American Dream (as we knew it), but also how these changes affect our lifestyle, and our standard of living.  The drastic and sudden changes made by our present administration, also affects how others see "US" (evidenced by many of our former allies of the first Gulf War, who chose not to join us in Iraq, in 2003).  Not to be overlooked, is the rising costs of the War in Iraq, and the debt/deficit burden it creates; the spiraling price of Oil and all of our daily commodities, without a equal tax break for the Middle Class); the ever growing list of American casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan; the rise of inflation, and the noticeable decline of American jobs now going to foreign shores; the changes in our workplace; the recent Schiavo Decision; the changes in Social Security (since 1935), Medicare (since 1964) and other "entitlements" (which we earned and contributed to, and expected to receive (as others have before us);  the lack of security in protecting our borders from terrorism and drugs; the inability to find Bin Laden; and the "instant changes of our Constitutional rights," with bills being passed by our administration, virtually, while we sleep!  40 years ago, we would protest until we found change.   What's happened to America?
