In her customized presentations, Shannon Skinner uses anecdotes from her life, peppered with her trademark wit and humour, to inspire her audiences; her style is informative and entertaining.
I Just Did it!
Shannon Skinner‘s witty humour and stories centred around the theme “proving the naysayers wrong” inspires audiences to live the lives they choose. If someone tells you that you can’t do something, that thing may very well be what you are destined to do. And, like Shannon, being told that you can’t do it might be all the fuel you need to ignite the fire inside. So now the inner fire is lit, then top that with asking the question Why not me?, and you have a recipe to get past fear and self-doubt to jump-start your dreams and journey to self-actualization.
Whether is it writing a book, starting a business or traveling the world, Shannon shares references from her book, The Whispering Heart: Your Inner Guide to Creativity, and tips and tools to give you the know-how to unlock your inspired creativity and live the extraordinary life you choose.
