Few people radiate sunshine and light the way today’s guest, Shanna Tyler, does. Not only is Shanna an incredible woman, but she is also a brand and business coach for mission-driven entrepreneurs and the CEO of Confused to Curated, a branding school that helps business owners build the best, most purposeful brands they can. In today’s episode, Shanna shares her journey with us. Due to the nature of the content, we have placed a trigger warning on this episode [TW: suicidal ideation which we discuss between [0:14:50] and [0:16:33]].
We hear about how she went from leading a life that looked good on paper but left her unfulfilled to moving forward with purpose and passion. Shanna shares the trials and tribulations of building a business and gives us insights into what it has taken to get hers off the ground.
We also talk about the wellness space, where Shanna worked for some time, the lack of representation, and why brands are losing out by not spending time and money investing in Black women, who would be willing customers if they felt heard and represented. Shanna discusses her passion for brand-building and how she built her brand that she was able to leverage into a full-time business. Shanna shares that she has struggled with claiming her space and owning her brilliance, but as she has grown older, she is consciously stepping into who she was always meant to be, and is thriving!
