Leap Like Me Podcast, Episode 4

What Really Happens When You Decide to “Live Your Dreams”

Shannon Whaley wants to dispel some myths about what it’s really like when you take the leap to finally “go after your dreams.”

For her, the idea of taking a big leap and shake up her life was so terrifying it sent her to the emergency room – more than once.

She knew she had to break from the party girl lifestyle she’d fallen into in Seattle, Washington, but her fears kept her stuck for years.

In this interview, we talk about how Shannon finally managed to conquer those fears and move to the Cayman Islands, where she realized that she’d have to get sober or she’d never get where she wanted to go.

In this episode we discuss the power of storytelling and why it's so important, especially during the climate in the USA right now.

I also give ya the scoop on my personal experience of going through coach training and how it transformed my life and has allowed me to help women do the same for themselves.

Stay Single Until You Find A Man Who Feels Like Home

I want a man who looks at me and says, “There you are.  I’ve been waiting my whole life for you.”

A man who has no problem being the first one to say “I love you”, even if he thinks it could scare me and make me want to run away.  He’s not afraid to say what he’s feeling and to tell me what’s on his mind.
