DISCOVER WHAT YOU WERE BORN TO DO
Do you need to get clarity on your natural talents?
Does your work need more meaning?
Is it time to do the work that really matters to you?
If you've followed the "rules" of traditional career advice just to end up in another soul sucking job,
I have news for you. There's a better way.
Join me for a 12-week course that will help you
unlock your hidden genius
and completely transform your relationship to work.
What you're really investing in is
how you're going to feel
every day - for the rest of your life.
"I've been helping people find their authentic path for nearly a decade. And I'm positive I can help you find yours." - Shannon L. Post
Before we begin,
I want you to know two things...
#1 You Aren't Alone
Finding the Right Path feels Confusing for everyone
(No matter what they tell you)
#2 You Can Figure This Out
everyone is capable of finding their true path
(No matter what people tell you)
You are not broken.
You simply live in a society that values conformity, and doesn’t teach you to listen and trust yourself.
I promise you that, no matter how lost you feel, how disconnected you feel from your own desires, deep down, you do know what you want.
I’m here to help you learn to listen to that voice.
Here's What We Unpack
How to reveal your inborn strengths (the talents that are effortless)
What to do if you don't have a "passion"
How to be certain you're choosing the best work for you
How to forecast your success and happiness in a job before you apply
And the most important decision you need to make to
be happy at work for the rest of your life.
I'll answer all of these questions and more...
What's special about this course
Well, it's not a boring lecture series with an exam at the end.
This is an investment in the rest of your life. It's crucial knowledge that you can't unlearn. And, because I want you to be able to absorb the content quickly and take action as soon as possible, I've included some special features to help speed up the process. You'll receive:
Weekly exercises designed to reveal your natural strengths
A mid-week email check-in from me to help you stay on track
Daily mental prompts delivered to your inbox every day
Full email access to me and my team to keep you moving forward
Lifetime access to the course (with automatic notification of new updates).
Why You Need a Course
As humans, even if we KNOW what to do intellectually, we often don't DO what we know to do.
A course takes advantage of our natural brain wiring and helps speed up learning.
Change is uncomfortable. It's easy to get distracted by all things "life". Having a structure and daily reminders helps your stay on track automatically. And that's important because consistency is part of the formula for ensuring your dream career turns into your real-life reality.
Having a container of support makes it easier and more likely that you'll step outside your comfort zone and reach for your bigger dreams.
A course also streamlines your education. There are no awards for starting from scratch or reinventing the wheel. You may need to reinvent your career, but you don't need to create the process for figuring out what your passion is. Smart people find shortcuts and this course will save you literal decades of trial and error.
Add to all of this an instructor who inspires and encourages you to reach for your dreams and you've just poured rocket fuel to your transformation.
Discover What You Were Born to Do is the best hack to accelerate your learning and address your unconscious drive to remain in a state of homeostasis. It will counteract the lure to stay where you are, stay "safe" and repeat old patterns over and over and over again.
What People Say About Working With Me
Registered Yoga Teacher
& Certified Yoga Therapist
This work has made me braver in putting myself out into the world as a yoga teacher. It’s helped me work more directly with my personal strengths and weaknesses. Even though I know myself fairly well, I didn’t see how I was holding myself back.
Certified Life & Equine Coach
Shannon is a no – nonsense, cut to the chase, zero in on whatever might be holding you back from living a
fulfilled and purposeful, satisfying life. With a huge heart, she was able to help me image and then bring to
fruition, my idea of the ideal job. She also helped me to see attributes within myself I was not allowing myself to see, so that I have the confidence to accept them as a part of me I can share with the world. I am forever grateful.
What You'll Walk Away With
An ability to understand and clearly articulate your natural strengths.
A long-term view of your future path and strengths is infinitely more valuable than someone pigeon-holing you into a specific industry or role.
Because economies change.
Technology changes. Personal circumstances change.
Everything in the world around you changes.
But your natural strengths don't change.
Your inborn talents are the solid foundation you can count on year after year.
It's the bedrock you need to build a long lasting career.
And a deep understanding of yourself and what you are best at will help you to adapt to the changing landscape.
Career shifts (that WILL happen) will no longer feel overwhelming because
you'll know the core of your strengths and how to apply it to whatever market you're in.
What We Won't Cover
Resumes & cover letters (you can google that)
Interview skills (but I will send you a pdf guide as a bonus)
Magic pills, instant fixes, and winning lottery ticket strategies
Old school, stuffy, blue suit & tie "professionalism" (also, if you're highly offended by the word "bummer," we aren't a fit). However, the elements of modern professionalism — authenticity, integrity, respect, kindness, inclusion, openness and trustworthiness - will come up
Hey there, I’m Shannon Post and I’m a career coach. I believe that enjoying your work is not only possible, but will change everything - for you, for those you care about and for the world.
What I know is that, if you hate your job right now, it isn’t your fault. You were raised in a culture that didn’t teach you how to find the work you love. The good news is you have the power to change that. This is a skill you can learn.
I can also tell you that you're not alone. I searched for the work I was meant for for well over a decade. I’ve had what on paper were “dream jobs.” I was a professional classical singer performing on the most famous stages in New York City. I was a dog musher working for a prominent Iditarod racer in Alaska. And I was a top senior IT executive leading technology and geospatial divisions.
In each case, I had “made it.” I had succeeded in society’s eyes but my heart wasn’t in any of those jobs. I wasn’t fulfilled, I wasn’t fully using my true talents (mostly because I didn’t understand what they were) and I wasn’t making the kind of impact I wanted to make in the world.
I’d tried to find the perfect career so many times without success that I thought something was seriously wrong with me. Like maybe I wasn’t allowed to have a career I loved, felt passionate about and was naturally good at. Or maybe having a career I loved was just a pipe dream.
If you can relate, you need to know that it’s not you, it’s the box you’re trying to fit yourself into. That box, the traditional career path, doesn’t work for everyone, and that’s okay. I’m here to help you find the work you’ll naturally love to do.
After working with private clients for several years, I decided to create this course as a more accessible way forward for people just like you. Discover What You Were Born To Do is a 12-week course where I work intimately with you to help you find a career path that not only fits your financial needs but also celebrates your talents, lifestyle and desire to make an impact.
My work is informed by my lived experience building careers in vastly different industries as well as my studies at the University of Montana, the University of Virginia and Stanford University. I’m certified by Kathy Kolbe, a leading authority on human instinct, and Dr. Martha Beck, a Harvard-educated sociologist specializing in human behavior.
And I have evidence that this works not only for myself, but also my clients.
The life I have now is the dream I had long ago. Alaska. Based in Talkeetna under the shadow of Denali and the Alaska Range. I live and run my business on the traditional territory of the Denaʼina Ełnena [dənʌʔɪnʌ].
I’m an INFP and my Kolbe index is 3-2-10-4. So I’m an introverted, empathic, innovative disruptor. I had a boss once say that he never quite knew what I was up to, but the results always broke the barriers of what he thought was possible and aimed to change the world. He wasn’t wrong. I want to help you change your world and the world of everyone around you.
