I know you are hiding but I see you and I see your big heart who wants to be a changemaker.
I know you have big things to say even when you stay quiet.
I know you want to take up space in this world and feel like you belong.
I know you believe you have more to offer but you are scared and tired — and feeling trapped.
I know you because I have been you.
I know you because I work with women who have been there.
So, let’s get you where you want to be. Let’s figure out who you really want to be in this next chapter of your life and blaze a new, bolder path for your ideas, your goals and your amazing self.
It’s time to use your words.
It’s time to take up space.
It’s time to show off.
It’s time to brag about yourself.
You know you have more to give to this world.
You know that you want to lead and inspire others.
Now it’s time to figure out who you are right now after years of neglect and serving others — and who you are becoming in this next half of your life.
I created my Brave Yes Journey Coaching process to help women who have been hanging back, quiet and waiting for permission to live more boldly to dig deep, get super clear on who you are and what you want and start showing up in your life more boldly.
Brave Yes Coaching will help you …
:: Feel supported and resilient
:: Establish your best life, career or business vision
:: Make time and space for your dreams
:: Start living more boldly, bravely and courageously
:: Unlock what motivates you (and holds you back)
Hello. I’m Shawn. I am a creative soul and Gen Xer who is creeping up on 50. I’m an instigator and changemaker that started out as a free spirit in my early years as a latchkey kid. I’m a starter and a doer. I make things happen. I am highly sensitive and strategic. I am equally introverted and extroverted. I am an anti-racist and a feminist. I am a fiction lover and a nature lover. I am a twin mother. I am passionate about offering spiritual well-being and direction for brave leadership and living.
In 2013, I left my 9-5 job to start my beautiful group coaching business The Abundant Mama Project — and did so successfully for eight years.
Over the years, I have coached thousands of women around the world to live a more fullfilled, resilient life. I’ve also written books, created programs, led retreats, given keynotes and corporate trainings and much more.
If you want to find your energy and your motivation we’ll start by unearthing your inner worth and your inner fire for life. The results and goals you set will be all yours and unique to you and your inner longings.
Six months of coaching with me begins with two powerful clarity sessions for 60 minutes each in the first month followed by 10 60-minute sessions every two weeks — amounting to 6 months of coaching.
My role as your coach is to help you motivate yourself to follow through on your goals, push yourself to start and finish things, challenge yourself and your assumptions, inspire yourself to take bold action, and build yourself up until YOU believe in yourself so much you start living more authentically, courageously and with more impact.
After years of serving others and doing what you needed to do, it’s time for you to know yourself and what makes you come alive. This is my superpower as a coach. I use deep, soulful exercises and prompts to spark your own inner wisdom and strengths.
We’re going to unearth the distinct set of strengths and talents that set you apart from everyone else. No more trying to conform and fit in. It’s never been more important to stand out and start believing in yourself and what you are capable of doing in this lifetime.
Let’s face it, change is hard. I’ll help you map out where you want to go in your life, career or business and identify all the steps along the way — and hold space for YOU as you navigate each part of the journey. Your Blueprint will be clear and adaptable to the changes along the way.
CHANGE IS GOOD! LET’S WORK TOGETHER.
First we schedule you for a Zoom Coaching Discovery Call where I’ll walk you through some initial coaching questions to get a feel for your goals and dreams.
If we both decide we’re a good fit, you’ll register and start filling out a Brave Yes Coaching Workbook — filled with pre-coaching questions to get you warmed up for your coaching experience. And you’ll sign a coaching agreement.
We’ll schedule your first session on our Discovery Call so we don’t waste a minute of your time. Because … When you’re ready, you’re ready.

“Shawn helped me tune in and turn myself on and communicate my needs. My work with Shawn was liberating, knowing I Am enough and I hold the power to prioritize my own pleasure.”
Kate, a working mom
I found my place and my role in life again.
“Before coaching I was struggling with feelings of worthlessness and depression and feeling unsure of how to move forward in my situation as a mom and wife. I was also struggling to build positive habits and patterns. After coaching I felt like I had more tools to work with to build positivity into my life and to figure out my place and my role.”
— Heather, stay at home mom
I find time and again I can turn to Shawn.
“In a time when we really need leaders we can trust, I find time and again I can turn to Shawn. She creates space where I can show up at my worst and leave feeling like and loving my very best self.”
Amberly, aspiring artist and illustrator
Choosing to set boundaries around her work schedule and start making time for herself again.
Finally loving herself — without apology.
Finding her voice and starting to sing again — on stage. 🔥
Choosing to quit a job that leaves her feeling lifeless and less than. ✨✨
Going after a new passionate career that brings her alive and brings more balance.
Developing a life plan for when her child is older and out of the house.
Going after her dream of becoming an author and illustrator. 🎨
Finding joy after adultery.
Finding joy despite an imperfect marriage. 🎊
Releasing larger-than-life expectations that were holding her back from experiencing true passion in her life.
To be fully present and living her values as a mother.
To accept her body finally after decades of hating it. 💞
To start showing up more as herself and putting her needs as a priority.
You can expect to finally start to peel back the layers behind why you aren’t doing the things you want to do for yourself. You can expect to learn a lot about yourself and what makes you happy and what brings you energy for your life. You can expect to have a clear sense of priorities and expectations of yourself and those around you. You can also expect to improve your communication and be a better leader over all. Coaching is ideal for you if …
Coaching is where you will always see the highest return on your investment into yourself or your professional career.
There are no refunds for coaching packages and for this reason it is not to be taken lightly. To invest in coaching requires a full commitment in time, money and energy. The hope is that by putting your investment on the line you will take yourself — and your dreams — more seriously.
The results will be immediate — unlike a DIY program or course — and you will walk away with more positive energy, more vibrant energy to a clear vision for who you need to be and what you need to be doing to live your best life.
Now, ask yourself this: How would you benefit from those changes in your life? How would your family benefit? Your co-workers or clients? Listen for your answers and ask yourself if the investment will be worth it to YOU.
I work with any woman — or anyone who identifies as a woman — who is ready to make a change — or become a changemaker. If you feel ready to challenge the way you’ve been living, working or creating, we’re going to be a good fit.
NOTE OF CAUTION — Brave Yes Coaching is not ideal if you are actively working with a therapist or need to be. Due to the nature of our work, we may end up in a triggering conversation that stirs emotions as courage work is likely to bring up past experiences. For that reason, those who are still recovering or healing from trauma should wait until therapy is complete.
My coaching philosophy is to empower you to your own greatness. I infuse journaling, mindfulness, life and business/career design, resilience and well-being coaching as well as leadership coaching. If you are open to it, I will also invite you to try some open-minded spiritual direction for your Brave Yes Living Journey. Exercises in letting go, trusting and surrender will often be used during your times of discomfort and change.
It’s your moment. Let’s begin.
