Shawn is the business coach I’ve been searching for for years.

“She’s the real deal. She’s able to talk about business systems, strategy, and growth, while also addressing personal needs and emotional blockers required to fully own your power.”

I am definitely showing up more fully myself than ever and it shows in my work and my private life.

I started working with Shawn when I felt a lack of inspiration and creativity to pursue my dreams. I wanted to get to the bottom of what is causing it and recover my sense of purpose to pursue my work. While working with Brave Yes Coaching, I uncovered layers of limiting beliefs, identified my energy zappers and put together an action plan that is aligned with my lifestyle. I am definitely showing up more fully myself than ever and it shows in my work and my private life.

Shawn has supported me in my role as the visionary and CEO to help empower my team.

“My business is in a growth stage and Shawn has supported me in my role as the visionary and CEO to help empower my team. She’s provided the guidance and resources I need and brought a new perspective to the challenges of our industry that have helped us innovate and adapt to the changes of these times. I’ve really enjoyed working with Shawn and highly recommend that everyone have a “Shawn in their corner” to guide self-care, innovation, and growth.

I can already see my own transformation taking shape!

“Within the first few minutes of talking with Shawn I felt at ease and connected on a deep level. We’re just six weeks in and Shawn has already given me so many incisive questions and prompts to reflect on to help me cut through entrenched thinking patterns that were holding me back. I can already see my own transformation taking shape!”

She gave me the tools I needed to find clarity on my business direction and make some tough decisions.

“Before starting coaching, I was convinced I was a hopeless cause. But Shawn has helped me challenge so many of my limiting beliefs – including that one!  She gave me the tools I needed to find clarity on my business direction and make some tough decisions. She has advised me, guided me, and cheered me on. Working with Shawn was undoubtedly a worthwhile investment in my business and in myself.”

She has inspired me to step up into my leadership role and to expand beyond what I thought was even possible to do.

“Shawn helps you dream bigger and think smarter in achieving your scariest (and hairiest) goals.  She has inspired me to step up into my leadership role and to expand beyond what I thought was even possible to do. I appreciate her candid and honest assessment, and I find her feedback is always on target. Everyone needs a champion in their corner who can get you to the next level.”

Honestly, I'm braver now.

“Honestly, I’m braver now. I’m putting myself out there and asking for what I want. And, I’m better at talking about what I do and really putting myself and my needs out there.”

 

— Claire Brislin, writing coach

Why #BusinessBrave Coaching?

Designing a business that is aligned to your needs and values and filled with EASE has never been more desired. I don’t believe in chasing cold leads or hustle. The demand on you to create and be out there taking up space and sharing your bold work with the world has never been more intense. But, you don’t have to hustle and grind to be seen and take up space.

Being #BusinessBrave is about …  

:: Being brave enough to reject business as usual and create a culture aligned with your values.

:: Being brave enough to sell confidently — because you know your value.

:: Being brave enough to handle uncertainty and make decisions based on possibility not fear.

:: Being brave enough to speak up, take up space and put yourself out there — consistently.

:: Being brave enough to make decisions good for your wellbeing and your bottom line.

:: Being brave enough to build a business that contributes to the greater good.

:: Being brave enough to have difficult conversations and still feel good about your integrity.

:: Being brave enough to differentiate yourself without feeling like you are selling out.

 

In other words, being a flourishing founder requires YOU to become #BusinessBrave.
