I’ll never have the perfect hair, perfect filter or perfect pose, but if I can wake up everyday laughing, then it’s the perfect day for me. . It’s been a lonnnnng work week and it’s only Thursday... longer than normal hours, patience tested, monotonous tasks, constantly moving puzzle pieces around to finish this week’s project the BEST way. Anyone else? 🙋♀️🙋♂️ . But, you know what got me this morning? I woke up in a darn good mood because I still get to laugh. I still get a choice. I still get to say I’m gonna have one helluva day even though this project is a tiny bit challenging. . So yeah. No perfection over here. Just belly laughs and red dresses. Now I’m gonna finish this week strong. . Wishing you THE BEST end to your week too. Keep pushing, keep hustling and finish tomorrow strong! 📸 @derricktribbey @derricktribbeyphoto

Energy 💥 Strength 💥 Determination 💥 Passion 💥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been wearing a lot of red, orange and pink lately. Does that correlate with how hard I’ve been working on my business? According to science and an #IncMagazine article from @jboitnott , yes it does! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are YOU working on today? Let’s work hard today to set the tone for the week, and if you need to wear a power color, DO IT! ❤️
“Take care of business on and off the court” has always been my motto. Although my “sport” changed from cheerleading to tennis, my professional mentality will always be the same: wake up everyday and crush it! Here’s your motivation to end the week on a high-note! Push yourself to be your best - physically, mentally, and emotionally. And, if you have to transition from a pair of #bossbabe heels to tennis shoes, show everyone you can run just as fast in either. 😉👌
As I finish celebrating another birthday with the best people, I’m welcoming this next 365 with full commitment to these ideals: ✔️ challenging myself daily ✔️ building better relationships both online and in person ✔️ starting and ending each day with a smile ✔️ staying true to my personal brand ✔️ committing to having one heck of a time! Instagram Fam, thanks for being on this journey with me! What are You committed to right now? Xoxo, Shan 📸 @derricktribbey @derricktribbeyphoto
To bacon or not to bacon?🧐 I came for the healthy shrimp salad but tomorrow’s my birthday so calories don’t count right now, right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ The Mediterranean Shrimp Salad at @docbsrestaurant is my go-to. Reminds me of a crisp summer day with the perfect balance of mint, cucumbers and avocado vinaigrette dressing; like sailing off on a yacht into the Mediterranean. With a side of candied bacon, of course, because birthdays 😉🥓 #docbsrestaurant #birthdaymeal #candiedbacon
It's funny how momentum works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes the smallest of details can be the most discouraging and diminish any sense of self-worth. Anyone else? 🙋♀️ Fortunately, it works the other way as well. Small details can put the pep back into your step and get you on the fast track to success! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀I'm challenging you today to dig deeper, push harder, and reach farther to achieve your goals this week. Find an #accountabilitypartner to help you get the ball rolling! See last week? Put it in the trash -- you've been given a new one, so let's crush it! Send this to someone who needs to hear this today, because, believe me, I know all too well how easily things can spiral out of control. Love you all and wishing you the best Monday yet! Xo.
We just booked my fifth speaking engagement for the first quarter of 2020! 🎉 As a motivational speaker, consultant, and influencer, I love teaching corporations, executives, employees, and students about generational differences and emotional intelligence in the workplace. Now more than ever, it’s important that we strengthen our interpersonal skills as we navigate through multiple channels of communication — both in person and online! Looking for a speaker for your next event? Let’s chat! Link is in bio. : )
I am behind on posting. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today might be #NationalSmileDay , but honestly, I haven’t taken any photos lately that I “love,” picking apart each of my perceived flaws. And truthfully, it’s freaking exhausting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We only get one life, and if you don’t love the skin you are in, what’s the point? So here’s me just being silly. No filters, nothing staged, just me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks #crescentclubdallas for throwing a stellar #Gatsby party last night and giving me plenty of reasons to smile today!
If you follow my “stories”, you know that in 2019 my health has become increasingly more important to me. I’ve been spending more time in the gym and back on the court. Thanks @tbarmracquetclub for the warm welcome back to tennis. It’s been a breath of fresh air. Q: What have you been doing recently to be healthy & happy?
Having a blast dining around Dallas, but cleaning up my health has taken priority in year two of living in this beautiful city. We only get one body, and I’ve learned the hard way over the last couple of years that I need to take better care of it. With that said, if you see more posts of gym selfies, protein smoothies, and tennis courts, #SorryImNotSorry #HealthMatters #LetsDoThis !
You know that saying, “you are the average of the five friends you spend the most time with?” Well, I also believe you are the average of the five most reoccurring thoughts you have on a regular basis. Today, I am reminding myself that I am: - Choosing Joy - Grateful for health - My own superhero - Sweet potato tater tots are the bomb.com - Fresh air can cure all woes ******************************** What thoughts are the most reoccurring for you?
This week is a very special celebration for me! I have officially lived in beautiful Dallas for one whole year! ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ A very big ‘thank you’ to all my best friends and family for making me feel so loved on this journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To all my new friends — I am SO happy to add you to my life now as well : ) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ I’ve learned three valuable lessons in this last year that I’m sharing over on my Facebook page — I’d love to hear your thoughts! Xoxoxo and cheers to another year! 😊
How do you prepare for the biggest client of your life? You start a conversation months in advance, call your mentors a million times, build out your talking points, throw them away, start again, revise revise revise, don’t sleep a WINK the night before, finally give in and get up at 4:30am, stage your backdrop, fight with your cat that she can’t sleep in her usual place, and at 9:00am CST, you lead a one hour webinar for Tesla’s global leaders from California to Amsterdam. You know you have a hard deadline at 10:00am and thank the team. Not one person got off the webinar and instead stayed for another 30 minutes to chat — even requesting additional information after the call. I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I ran off a stage crying. I’ve doubted myself. I’ve even let the naysayers get to me on occasion. But today was a day I’ll never forget. Thank you Tesla for allowing me to give you my thoughts on how to build a world class organization. Today was the honor of a lifetime.
This #PolarVortex has me hunkered down inside so I figured I’d do an introduction post for all of my new friends on here! Here’s a little more about me - please tell me some random facts about you! * I gave my first speech at the #4H county fair at the age of 8. I fell in love with it. * I am the cat lady 💯. @misstaylormariethecat has been hanging with me for almost 15 years. * My first time out of the USA was with the #KansasCityChiefs My first year as an NFL Cheerleader the team took our entire squad to Jamaica for photo shoots, interviews and practicing our routines for the season. It was amazing! * I really dislike sweets. I know, weird, right? I don’t crave them like most people! * I have an amazing sense of direction. No really, I can figure out my cardinal directions faster than you can say “peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers”. 😂👍😘
I’ve visited three countries, eight cities and too many weather changes in the last seven days. Want to know how I stay grounded? Reading books from some of my favorite people. -> 📚 Relentlessly learning, constantly growing, always evolving. Q: What do you do to stay grounded? #MotivationalSpeaker
1-1-2019: Reflecting and looking forward… It’s suffice to say the last few years were a little muddled for me. Professionally, I sometimes felt like I was a shell of myself. Personally, I sometimes felt like I was taking one step forward and three steps back. I lost people I never thought I’d lose. I lost things that had significance. I made weird mistakes. I won a few battles. I made a few new friends. As recent as last week I still sobbed at some of the turns. . But, life isn’t just an upward swing. We know that. It’s all part of our story whether we like it or not. It’s all a journey. And if we aren’t waking up trying everyday, even on the bad days, what’s the journey worth? . Today, I am really looking forward to 2019. I’m ready to get back to the reason why I became a speaker and entrepreneur: to inspire people. To make a difference in people’s lives. I feel like I’ve gotten away from that outside of my keynotes. And maybe you’ve felt it too. But here’s my promise to myself, to 2019 and to you - I’m going to show up every single day giving my absolute best. I hope you do too. And, I hope I can sprinkle a little inspiration, impact and sunshine into your life over these next 365. Let’s do this journey together. I’m rooting for you. I’ll always root for you. No matter how many weird turns you have on your journey too. . XO, Shan
I just got back from an amazing vaca in the Bahamas, and while I want to tell you all about it, the truth is, I’ve been heads down working my tush off the last three days. . I am ready to crush some major goals in 2019 and know I’ve got a lot of work ahead in order to do it. . How about you, what are you dreaming big about that you want to conquer these next 365? . LETS DO THIS. 📸 @kennyphotokc
I hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday weekend with the friends and family you love most. I’m spending today tackling ✌🏼goals before I head out for vacay! 1️⃣ working on my 2019 business plan! 2018 has been amazing - I’ve traveled to almost all 50 states to deliver keynote speeches and I plan to knock it out of the park next year too! 2️⃣ how can I grow even more personally and professionally? Goals aren’t always just career related, they are personal too! What are you working on this week?
My first summer in Dallas is coming to a close and this is what I’ve learned: 👉 It really is “touching the sun” hot down here 👉 Bird scooters have changed my life 👉 Love Field airport is more convenient than KCI airport (sorry KC ) 👉 Gourmet popsicles are a THING 👉 Grateful for technology to stay in touch with friends and fam 👉 Everything really is bigger in Texas (I need more hairspray for bigger hair ) 👉 Loving this new adventure! ❤️ Have you ever moved? What has been your favorite part of trying a new city? Xo.
As I fly out on the last day of September, it’s only fitting that I post this photo. This month marks my fifth anniversary of qualifying to be a member of the National Speaker’s Association. It’s been a whirlwind five years that has seen changes both personally and professionally, but I am grateful for where I am today. Cheers to the next five!
It may be cloudy and cool, but this trip has left me feeling inspired. Surrounding yourself with exceptional people will always take you exceptional places. Until next time #NYC
It’s been a few years since I cheered professionally but they were some of the best years of my life. This weekend, I’m pumped to be in Nashville with 450 fellow NFL Cheer Alumni from across the league to laugh, celebrate, and cheer each other on for all we have accomplished and what is yet to come! These women have changed my life and I couldn’t be more proud to be part of this group. ❤️💛
