Let's get to know Shauna more!
What's your number one piece of advice for entrepreneurs?
Stay in your own lane. Don't ask, "Is this right?" but instead, "Is this right for me?". Don't get distracted or off-course based on what you THINK you should be doing or what competitors or doing. Stay in your own lane - the right path is your OWN path.
What's the best investment you've made in your business?
This may sound cliche but it's hands down coaching. As a business owner, you are way too close to often see things clearly, especially when it comes time to bump to the next level. Having outside support who can help you get clear on the path forward and help you find the action steps to doing so is imperative to your success. Investing in coaches has helped me grow so much faster than I would in isolation.
What are your favorite tools/apps that you use?
I'm rather old school. I have one 600-page notebook I buy fresh at the start of every year. It goes with me everywhere and is my number tool. On my phone, the apps I use the most aside from the mainstream ones are Moment (a phone usage tracking app that helps me limit my screen time), Shipt (to have my groceries delivered so I can use that time more wisely in my business), Voxer (to chat with VIP clients which reduces emails and work colleagues) and UpWork (a freelancer website to make quick hires for projects and tasks).
What is one of your favorite books you've read that has made an impact on you?
