Bestselling author Shannon Lee Whalen helps clients connect body and mind

Working with a coach can give side hustlers the new perspective they need

One thing Shannon Lee Whalen has recognized in her journey through self-discovery to entrepreneurship is that no one has to do it alone. “Build your team around you. If you are a solopreneur like I was, you do not have to do it alone,” she says. “There is this mindset that people are ‘self-made.’ No. No one is ACTUALLY self-made.”

She acknowledges she had the “self-made” mindset for years. But looking back, she says, “the second I asked for help, everything shifted.” For one thing, if you are working for yourself and if “you” are the product or service, she notes, “the business will have the same things come up that you have personally come up.” A coach, someone who can point out your blind spots, can help you through the obstacles you put in your own way. With that and self-compassion, she says, “you are powerful beyond measure. You’ve got this.”

Shannon speaks from personal experience when she helps clients incorporate physical activity in their lives through her coaching and her residential fitness company. Throughout her childhood until young adulthood, dance was her life. But when she decided not to pursue it as a career, she dropped it entirely and faced an identity crisis that led to depression. 

Read how she reconnected with her passion for dance and made it part of her career in the inspiring new book Women Who Boss Up Post-Pandemic, by Tam Luc, the author, educator, and podcaster dedicated to helping women “boss up.” The book collects 16 interviews with women who are side hustlers and multitaskers, who faced the uncertainties of the Covid pandemic—and other obstacles—by embracing their strengths and finding their authentic paths. They have so much to share and to teach, and while every story is unique, there is creativity and perseverance at the core of each one.
