Coach Shanita

“ Behind Every Successful Woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.” 




If you know me by now, I’m all about supporting one another and having each others back. I believe that by supporting one another, we can inspire, motivate, empower, also learn from one another. For me, I’m about exploring all forms of creative outlets and how it can help in ones career goals. I’m extremely grateful and proud to live in a city that supports and celebrates ones passions, a city that truly is a place where one can make dreams happen. I love the entrepreneurial spirit that lives in all of us and in a city like New York. How we can all band together, embrace our strengths and empower one another as we grow in life and in business.

I love learning about new businesses and not only learning about them but supporting them as well. Recently, I had the pleasure of learning about one of my girlfriends new and growing business. She recently transitioned from working in the school system to becoming a life coach. While, she enjoyed enriching the minds of students everyday, she thought it was time to shift gears. She wanted to help and guide those in need and learn a different trade. Thus, began her journey on her path in becoming Coach Shanita. While she isn’t your traditional therapist, she is referred to as a coach. One to help you through those difficult times in life, whether its in your career, personal relationship, whatever the case is, her techniques shouldn’t be confused as therapeutic but more holistic and in a coaching manner so to speak.

One night after catching up with my girl Shanita, she started telling me about her new Coaching business. Not to be confused as a therapist, but a life coach. Her methods help you to look from within and channel in on what really may be troubling you, or even any obstacles you may be facing. She helps you deal with your frustrations, self-doubt or angst of not being able to move forward. It may sound like a therapist, but she’s your Life Coach. Helping you build a better you and face whatever your going thru head on. Allowing you to clear your head, seek the power that lies within you. Her holistic and personal methods are not only inspiring, they are empowering.

My 30 minute Session: 

She gave me an overview of what she does and how her coaching methods have helped the clients she’s currently working with. Now, in order for her to best tell me about her work, she’s asked if she could try a 30 minute session with me over the phone.  So, I was delighted to hear more about Coach Shanita and her methods so we began our session.  At the time, I had been dealing with some personal conflicts in my life, and thru her coaching methods, Shanita helped me work through those underlying feelings I was having. She coached me thru it, and made me face it head on. She had me stand up and face all my fears and doubts, and confront it.  In that 30 minutes I felt a huge weight off my shoulders. I felt strong, empowered and unbothered by what had been effecting me. We went over my 30 minutes slightly, but she helped me find my inner strength and be at peace with it all. Although, her methods are about personal growth and clearing you from self-doubt its something we ourselves have to work

If you or anyone you know is looking for a coach or just to seeking advice in working through anything your going thru contact her today. You have nothing to lose, your first 30 minute session with her is FREE. What’s stopping you, she’s not only a great friend, she’s is amazing at what she does. Schedule a time to speak with her today, and feel empowered and inspired after just your first session.

     Each one, Teach one…
“Stand up Today”
“Be part of the future, not part of the cycle.”
“Speak up!”

As we all settle into the fall season, we embark and celebrate many holidays up ahead. We also take the time to mark each month for a particular awareness to educate, inform, and acknowledge what is going on within our society. October is dedicated to spread awareness for  Anti-Bullying. In our society, many of our youth are teased and ridiculed each and every day. If its not our youth, its those who are disabled, the elderly, those who are overweight, and many others. We need to stand up and teach one another the importance of speaking up and stopping this cycle. Because before we know it, it may be too late. Many children who are bullied at school tend to be home-schooled because the crude remarks and hurtful comments they receive in school are just too hard to deal with. No one should ever have to stay home or leave school because of someones verbal abuse and attacks.

In the last couple of years, studies and research have shown that those who were mocked because they were gay, obese, disabled, or just someone thought to be out of the ordinary were ridiculed so much to the point where some took their own lives to stop the pain. Some sometimes turn to self mutilation or another self hurting tactics to end the hurt.  Others who were bullied came out of the attack with a broken arm, a punch in the face, or even a broken leg. THIS HAS GOT TO STOP!

The United States still doesn’t have a bill for Anti-Bullying, and it’s been 9 years and counting…. Let’s come together and stop the bullying TODAY! Join the cause today, join with me and lets make a difference.. Let’s make a stand together. A young influencer who was deemed, “World’s Ugliest Woman” is one of the most bravest, couragegious, positive rays of sunshine this centuries seen yet. Lizzie Velasquez is an American Motivational speaker and author. She was born with a rare congenital disease among the other symtoms, one of which impedes her ability to increase her body fat. Even with her disease, and all the ridicule she’s received over the years, she remains positive as she shares her story with the world.

Her message and story is so inspiring, that we all need to hear it. To me, I find her to be one of the most courageous women out there with the most beautiful soul and heart. After all the hate and hurt she’s gone thru she still remains relentless, positive despite the odds. She’s truly an inspiration, watch her video below and you’ll see what i’m talking about. Join Lizzie and others to end bullying today. She’s been a victim and at times continues to be, but that doesn’t stopped her and her fight. Let’s come together for change and join Lizzie today. I’m with Lizzie. Are you? Join the fight and cause and let’s help get a bill through Congress and end the hate now. Raise awareness for bullying and become part of the cause not the cycle. Watch the video and join Lizzie and others. Join the cause.


I’M WITH LIZZIE | Influencers Against Bullying

We need to teach our youth and the rest of our society that violence and saying hurtful words isn’t the answer. We have to stop the hate, we have to stop judging others because if we don’t, the results are can be heartbreaking. Each one, Teach one, that is the motto we have to take to our youth. It starts now, to stop the hate, stop the bullying. And say you’re with Lizzie and you will help build awareness against bullying. Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Spread the word and continue to show kindness and compassion for others. Remember “Each one, Teach one” and join the cause today.  Say, “I’m with Lizzie!” And then maybe we can save a life or even create a better society without any hate or judgement. Maybe this can only exist in a dream world, maybe not but we’ll never know if we don’t try…

How can we make this end?
