“I not only coach others to clarify their vision to achieve extraordinary results, I practice what I speak. So the coaching and consultative services are driven by my heart and desire to see others succeed,” shared Dr. Shanna. “I work with a wide range of clients to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each individual and organization. In a supportive atmosphere, I help clients attain the professional and personal growth they are striving for through in-person, virtual, or phone sessions.”

“I live in committed action. For me, that is the ability to ‘Say X and Do X.’ So, often, we are caught ‘saying X and doing Y.’ We get frustrated when we do not get the desired results we seek. Well, how can we get to the desired result if what we say does not align with our actions? This is one of my best qualities because I live exactly what I coach,” shared Dr. Shanna Van Ness. My formula is Focus + Discipline x Perseverance = Success. I apply this formula with all my clients,” she added.
Over the next three to five years, Dr. Shanna Van Ness will broaden her coaching and strategic venture, offering a robust catalog of online coaching programs to support clients in achieving extraordinary results. She hopes to pursue more philanthropic endeavors to create positive social change in underserved communities as she publishes her second book.
“When I embraced my passion and purpose on the planet, I was able to build my brand. I love what I do for people, so it does not seem like it is hard work. My brand was built on ‘heart work.’ Becoming a Certified Business, Executive, and Life coach allowed me to flourish in the area of consulting as well. In that realm, I am able to provide clients with strategic solutions in operations management, strategic planning, and development consultative services,” Dr. Shanna Van Ness said.
Emphasizing that success does not happen overnight, the innovative coach is committed to helping her clients go through a meaningful process of change, resilience, and discipline. Without a doubt, Dr. Shanna Van Ness will undoubtedly impact countless lives and become a household name.
