You Want More
Something different. You have dreams.
Something you can look back on and be proud of.
Something that would outlive you.
You want to do something that matters, for you and the world. You want to make a difference in a child’s life, in a stranger’s life and in your own life.
You want to live up to your potential.
You want to stop concerning yourself with what others think or care about and focus on ideas that matter to you, your beliefs, your dreams.
If you do what everyone else is doing, that’s not authentic. Period.
But at least you feel safe and secure, right?
You’ll know what comes next because it’s been done before, a million times…. by everyone else.
But how to get started? Where do you begin?
No more feeling stuck or frustrated.
You can gain the confidence to go against the grain, you can break the status quo, you can live the life you were meant to live, you can live up to your potential, you can be someone who did something unique, you can start a business, you can break the glass ceiling, you can have experiences and faces fear...even when it scares the shit out of you.
How? I'm going to show you. I got you!
Hello, I'm Barbara
I'm so glad you're here!
I had this feeling deep inside I should be doing something different, something that inspired me, something that filled my heart, and that I could help others, but I couldn’t figure out what "IT" was?
BUT I knew damn sure it wasn't another JOB.
Not realizing it then but the Universe was sending me signals, but I wasn’t paying attention.
Long story short, I had a couple of life-altering events that woke me up.
One, my sister passed away unexpectedly. She had health issues but nothing that gave us any warning she would go so quickly.
The other surprise was my current employer.
After my sister passed, I received cards and flowers expressing condolences from friends, colleagues, and even my husband’s employer.
But nothing from my employer of five years. I thought it was odd.
When I arrived back to work after traveling to the east coast for my sister’s services my boss asked me to come to her office.
I went in thinking she and my employer were, a little late but will offer their condolences.
When I got in her office, she did ask me how I was doing and small talk for about 10 minutes then she said that HR would "need a copy of my sister’s death certificate."
She went on to say it was policy.
Policy…what kind of policy is this.
I’m mourning the loss of my sister. What are you asking me?
Basically, you want proof that I’m not lying about my sister’s death because I needed to take time off.
I honestly freaked out.
What an insensitive, thoughtless company that didn’t take the time to send a sympathy card but has the BALLS to ask for my sister’s death certificate.
No! not balls…. because I associate balls with someone that does something most of us are afraid to do. Like someone that has the guts to go skydiving.
This was just cruel!
Who the hell am I working for?
These are not my values. This is not how you treat people.
This feels so wrong.
That was my breaking point — in the best possible way.
Time to change my life.
To be honest, this wasn’t the first time the company disappointed me. There were plenty of other times, but I was playing it safe. I was collecting a paycheck and knew how each day would play out.
It’s mind-blowing how many of us trade the chance to be fully alive for the seemingly safe harbor.
Fear will do that to you……
Who am I?
I’m Barbara Murphy-Shannon and I went back to college to get my master's in psychology when most people my age are moving to a 55 and older retirement community playing golf every day.
I'm not ready to stop chasing my dreams and something tells me you aren't either.
I'm just a wee bit Irish, momma of two children, and a high energy golden doodle named Jessie and married to the love of my life.
I grew up outside of Boston, so I speak two languages. English and Bostonian (Paak the caa in Haavaad Yard).
After a hard day's work, my adult beverage of choice is a "Shannon Special" —vodka, water with a splash of cranberry so it's pink not red...and lots of ice. ahhh.
My clients are mostly women (sorry guys), all ages and backgrounds with no single defining difference except they want to be happy, live up to their potential, in balance without compromising their beliefs and values.
I help women just like YOU.
That’s when I thought: what if there was a better way? What if I could create a system that would help you feel confident, create a plan and start achieving your goals today.
We’re still in the early beta stages, but if the above describes you, your life, and your desires in any way?
I’m personally inviting you into a 5-day “Elevate - Goal Planning to Become Unstoppable” challenge, where I’ll walk you through five things you can do today to start achieving your goals now—without having to write a long drawn out dissertation of what you want that ends up thrown on the shelf collecting dust. ;)
I recommend that all new clients start here—you ready?
