I’ve worked over the past twenty years in the financial industry, leading teams, coaching employees, and providing client service. In addition to my writing and coaching, I am COO and shareholder at Kidder Benefits Consultants, Inc.
I write my own posts about topics that inspire me to be my best self and achieve presence. I also do many posts that are book summaries. I’ve found that many people are interested in the topics I study, but they are not necessarily flush with time to read. I try to help by offering book summaries of key points I learned and sharing.
Over my career I have had one theme that has helped me find success and balance.
BE Where You Are.
I latched onto this phrase to guide my choices when I became a mom and struggled to balance work, parenting and time for self. BE Where You Are means to embrace where you are in this current moment. We can only focus on what we are doing in the moment. Once we learn how to fully submit to the present, we can evaluate, and guide our compass towards where we want to arrive in the future.
BE Coaching – when you are ready to give yourself the gift of focusing on your dreams.
We all came here for a reason. Our main purpose is to find that reason and share it with the world. The truth that is already deep within you and has been since before the day you were born. All you have to do is get out of your own way.

Shannon Elhart has a different approach to living a happy life. She believes you need to dive into your pain (rather than avoid it) to find true, lasting joy. After her newborn’s death, she had a defining moment when she realized she had choice - let that pain define and limit her, or heal it consciously.
Shannon chose to heal, and by doing so she - surprisingly - found more pain from her past: from being raped as a teenager, from addiction to alcohol, from divorce, and from a lifelong struggle with a lack of self-worth.
As she healed more and more, she became happier, more confident and fulfilled. Now she teaches people worldwide how to heal the pain from their past in her program The Healing Journey . You can learn more about Shannon and her program at http://shannonelhart.com/the-healing-journey-join-us/

Ever since high school, I've spent a lot of time reading self-development books, no matter how nerdy it made me feel to be reading one of those "Why Your Twenties Matter!" kind of books. I enjoy a life of constantly trying to push myself into new situations in order to grow and keep my life interesting.
In 2013, I enrolled at the University of Southern California. I always wanted to travel and this was the best excuse to move 3,000 miles from home to sunny Los Angeles. I knew I was in for something new and exciting, and I can confirm that with each and every opportunity and friendship that has been thrown my way.
Through my experiences learning about entrepreneurship, economics, and freedom, I've been able to network with some of the country's most brightest students at Young Americans for Liberty and FEE, the Foundation for Economics Education. In 2015, I even got to meet Dr. Ron Paul himself, one of my personal heroes.
When I talk to many of my peers, I notice the lostness they feel in their general life direction. They see it as a problem with themselves, while I see it as a country-wide university system that has failed to grow since the founding years of these institutions. There is a better way to educate students and this university system has been long in need of an overhaul.
After careful thought and consideration, I felt like it was time to take a pause on my 15th straight year of traditional schooling and make a bold move. I started Praxis.

If you have ever said things like:
Then you will love what I write.
I study the habits and routines of the successful people and translate it back to you in a digestable format. I believe that no matter your "educational" background, you always have the power to control your life.
Today's education system is handicapping ambitious young people. It's making them bored and uninspired in life.
Yet with so many parents, teachers, and guidance counselors pushing you towards college, saying "no" becomes increasingly difficult. You deserve a better solution. You need a path that works for you.
I want to help you in the process of creating that path.

Three years ago, I decided to pull out all the stops and follow my heart. I moved my longtime Paris psychotherapy practice online and came to India on a one-way flight. Wherever I went, I met Indian families who, upon learning that I’m a psychotherapist, asked me for help. I spent 6 months travelling to many places in India staying in 15 different families and helping them understand and move past their issues. It was a deeply soulful and enriching experience. In spite of my intentions to stay on the road, a series of coincidences/synchronicities landed me up in a room in a beach side apartment in Mumbai. I quickly realized it was time to complete a book I’d been working on very sporadically for many years. Psychology in the Light of the East (Rowman & Littlefield) is coming out next month! I continue working online with my psychotherapy and coaching clients around the world and in India. I do my best to fully live by my belief in following my inner calling. Inner and outer barriers are nothing but opportunities for deeper understanding, growth and transcendence.

Shanelle, is sometimes referred to as the “Catalyst” for her ability to affect cultural shifts in organizations or as the “Energizer” for her coaching skill that brings out the untapped energy and talents in people. Her presentations combine real-life stories, business training, and interactive events that connect with the audience at a personal, intense and individual level.
Shanelle Calvin is the CEO of SC Coaching, LLC where she helps women entrepreneurs save time, money and headaches. SC Coaching, LLC is committed to helping women entrepreneurs earn more by increasing their performance through effective training, communication, digital product creation, and process improvement. She is the Founder of Success U with Coach Shanelle a virtual training academy for women entrepreneurs on the go.
Prior to her opening her business, Shanelle worked as Membership Manager at the American Institute of Architects in Virginia, and earned a reputation as one of the most detailed, thoughtful and patient liaisons in the architectural community. In her 10+ years with AIA Virginia Shanelle helped streamline the association data, create a membership orientation program, strengthen alliances with five local components, and retain over 90% of their members.
In 2010, the architectural community was hit hard. Shanelle and other staff with AIA were furloughed and lost 2 months of paychecks. She hit the ground running and started consulting. This process was isolating and hard to navigate, so she went looking for a tribe of women entrepreneurs for support and connection. Shanelle found a void in the marketplace for networking for and among women that were focused, energetic, and authentic. She founded Empowering Her Events, an events production company that hosted interactive events to empower women to find their voice, communicate their worth, and reach their goals. While there, she produced Build Your Business, a quarterly workshop series that helped women entrepreneurs build business in a down economy. The workshop series was free and connected women in Virginia with their fellow entrepreneurs to connect, collaborate, and learn together.
The Building Your Business workshop series led to being a small business correspondent on the radio, and the creation of SC Coaching, LLC. Shanelle is often asked to speak at events on the subjects of: women entrepreneurs, pricing, leadership development and training, process improvement and system implementation, workforce development and team building, client attraction and retention, and relationship building through effective communication.
Shanelle strongly believes that communication and service have the power to support and reshape her community. She volunteers as a President and Area Director for Toastmasters International, on Collections Committee at the Valentine, as a Facilitator for the Divorce Recovery Workshop at First Baptist Church, as the Outreach Team Lead for TEDxRVA, and is also an honorary member of Building Economic Stability Together.

Jennilynne, Founder & Conscious Creator of Access Your Genius, is lit up about education in all sorts of arenas, but not in the traditional sense. The root word of education, “educo”, actually means “to draw out”. And that fits beautifully with her take on education….the belief that not only do we have all our own answers inside of us, our bodies also have the remarkable ability to heal from the inside out. And that “interesting point of view” has been precisely what led her to incorporate the tools of Access Consciousness® into her facilitation, coaching and personal transformation practice.
She enjoys providing Bars® & Body Reactivation sessions for her clients, intuitively communicating with their bodies to transform many areas including money, relationships, business/ career, body changes and more. These sessions have been used to activate bodies to create more ease with PTSD, cancer, pregnancy and more. One Body Reactivation session that many clients enjoy is the Access Energetic Facelift™, which can reverse the appearance of aging on the face and body.
Jennilynne especially enjoys facilitating BARS® classes, an 8 hour opportunity to learn how to gift and receive the Bars®. Anyone can learn the Bars®, including kids! Many chiropractors and massage therapists choose to learn to Bars®, as they report it has improved the lasting effects of their adjustments and massages. As a Certified Bars® Facilitator and an approved NCBTMB instructor, massage therapists receive 8 CEUs for completing this class.
