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 with 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

(Regardless of their Instagram)

#2 You Can Figure This Out

everyone is capable of finding their true path

(No matter what "the experts" 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 

  • 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).

What People Say About Working With Me

You're not a conventional coach/counselor/advisor and that's awesome because traditional, weirdly, has not worked for this erstwhile rule follower.

Your personality is so warm and supportive. It was the perfect environment for me to ask questions and express personal doubts. It was also the perfect way to turn my Kolbe results into actionable changes.

"I think that, most likely, I would've given up on my dream career had it not been for the work we did."

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 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


I’m Shannon Post and I’m a career coach—but not your conventional blue-suit-and-tie career coach. I believe finding the work you love is an act of rebellion that will change the world.

What I know is, if you hate your job right now, it isn’t your fault. We live in a culture that depends on people believing work is supposed to suck. 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 to do for well over a decade. I’ve had crappy minimum wage jobs and what on paper were “dream jobs.”  I was a professional classical singer performing on the most famous stages in New Your City. I was a dog musher for a prominent Iditarod racer in Alaska. And I was a CIO and top senior IT executive leading teams in technology and  mapping. 

In each case where I had “made it,” where I had succeeded in society’s eyes, I was miserable. None of the jobs felt like me. I wasn’t fulfilled, I wasn’t fully using my natural 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.

In each case where I had “made it,” where I had succeeded in society’s eyes, I was miserable. None of the jobs felt like me. I wasn’t fulfilled, I wasn’t fully using my natural 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 and felt passionate about. Or maybe having a career I was naturally good at 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. There is fulfilling work out there that fits you and your personality like a glove. And it’s my goal to help you find it.

After working with private clients for several years, I wanted to create a more affordable way to get help. 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 own experience building careers in vastly different industries, over twenty years supervising, managing, leading, and mentoring employees, continuing education and my studies at the University of Montana, the University of Virginia, and Stanford University. 

But the thing I’m most proud of is that, against all odds, 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. The ability to make a tangible impact in people’s daily lives and improve the world around me. Alaska is breathtaking, and I am indebted to the Denaʼina Ełnena [dənʌʔɪnʌ] and their traditional territory where I now get to live and work.

I’ve been certified as a coach by Kathy Kolbe, a leading authority on human instinct, and Dr. Martha Beck, a Harvard-educated sociologist specializing in human behavior. 

I had a boss who said my results always broke the barriers of what he thought was possible and changed the world. He wasn’t wrong. 

Now I want to break the barriers of what you think is possible and help you change your world and the world of everyone around you.

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.

By working with Shannon, not only did I discover my fire but I kicked the bottle over and let it spread like wildfire. Like Greek fire.


Our work together has led to an explosion of understanding of what I want to accomplish in the world and in my life.


I am more alert, awake, and aware especially of myself.
