    Why I Almost Didn't Start This Podcast

    Why I Almost Didn't Start This Podcast

    If you would have told me a few years ago that I would one day be the host of my own podcast, I probably would have laughed & looked at you as if you were nuts. I never once thought that the girl who religiously listened to Jenna Kutcher & Amy Porterfield on her commute to a soul-sucking corporate job, would one day launch her very own podcast. So what inspired me to finally launch my podcast? And as this podcast title suggests, what almost held me back from starting one in the first place? 
    Tune into the episode to find out!

Shannon is so down to earth and relatable. She shares great advice on running your own online business and living the laptop lifestyle. Even though I live the “laptop lifestyle” from my home state, I still find her advice so helpful! If you are in the early stages of your business, you will find Shannon’s tips are a game changer for your biz. I can’t recommend this podcast enough!

Simply amazing!

I’ve known Shannon for a long time and she’s one of the strongest, most resilient people I know. She’s come an incredibly long way in life and you can hear how much she’s learned through the narrative of her podcast. The content she shares with us is nothing short of inspirational.
