S2 Ep12: Shana Recker
Meet the wonderful Shana Recker, a business coach and mindset strategist! Today’s episode is a special expert edition. While still learning about Shana’s story as in typical What Should I Do With My Life? chats, this episode is more of a deep dive into insights and actionable advice for our listeners from our expert. Shana is a coach for new coaches, helping them start their businesses and launch their first group coaching programs, using the quantum leap strategy. Today Shana shares about the importance of making a financial investment in our transformation journeys, talks about why we should set big goals and dream big, and discusses where we should begin if we have no idea what to do with our lives. A lot of us are scared to take that first step into change and achieving our goals, and Shana really helps us break down how to step into action.

Her work really resonates with me and I have learned so much from her on my own self-worth journey. We only scratched the surface here, there is so much more we could get into.
