How It All Started….Read Shannon’s Story
One day changed everything.
In 2012, Hurricane Sandy had somehow traveled far enough up the East Coast to do massive damage in New York and New Jersey, where I lived. While my home was not at all affected, I saw destruction all around me. People’s houses and lives were washed away within hours, leaving bewilderment and sadness in Sandy’s wake. The collective energy of all of this had me asking if I was spending every day exactly how I wanted to? The answer was a resounding “no”.
I was an 8th grade public school teacher, and I had been teaching for 15 years. Due to the destruction to the infrastructure of New York City, school was canceled, and I received what I now refer to as my “Hurricane Sandy Gift”—a week of solitude and deep thinking.
I used this time to think about all the ways I could use my current skills and expertise to build a business. I loved teaching—and I still love teaching—but I just couldn’t continue working for a public school system that continued to demoralize students and devalue teachers daily.
Less than six months later, I launched my marketing consulting business in February 2013 (The first iteration of my business was named The Writing Whisperer.) Then in June, I turned in my resignation to my teaching job. I haven’t looked back since.
And I am always encouraging others to create their own journeys of love, truth, and complete bliss.
After leaving the classroom, I wrote my memoir: Breaking the Silence: My Final Forty Days as a Public School Teacher. This book is a love letter to my students, fellow teachers, and the reformed public schools I envision in the future. It’s also a heartfelt message of hope, encouragement, and self-empowerment for those who feel stuck in soul-sucking careers.
People who know me refer to me as “ShanLion” because of the courage and fearlessness with which I now live my life! My sole mission is to teach and inspire others to dream bigger and bolder than ever before–and make every decision in life and business rooted in JOY. When you put joy first, the money will ALWAYS follow.
We believe every act of business can be an act of love, and we can be profitable by staying 100% true to who we are.
