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 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...

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
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 loving your work is a rebellion that will change the world.
What I know is, if you hate your job right now, it isn’t your fault. You simply 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 to do 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 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 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.
My work is informed by my experience building careers in vastly different industries as well as 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, Sultana 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’m certified by Kathy Kolbe, a leading authority on human instinct, and Dr. Martha Beck, a Harvard-educated sociologist specializing in human behavior.
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 who said he never quite knew what I was up to, but the 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.
