“My mission is to not only help artists improve their creative work but also to realize their self worth and guide them to their soul's purpose.”

About Shannon

Shannon is a former casting associate turned mindset, audition, confidence and career coach for creatives. She has spent her last seven years working on shows such as Superstore, American Housewife, Shrill, and Never Have I Ever.

Through working in the entertainment industry, she has witnessed first-hand how negative artists can be toward themselves. Her mission is to not only help artists improve their creative work but also to realize their self worth and guide them to their soul's purpose. She wants artists to know that everything they desire is achievable for them. You can build the life you want and make money on your own terms. Intuitively, Shannon is able to read your biggest blocks and channel how to overcome them. This holistic approach allows artists to navigate their career path with ease.

“It’s a beautiful thing to be a part of someone’s transformation and growth.”

Shannon’s most notable method is “Finding Yourself First,” which teaches artists how to shift internally to create their desired outer reality. The FYF method was created to help artists show up authentically in creative work and everyday life.

She has helped so many creatives not only feel good about their work and performances, but also with their mindset and confidence.


“I know I am in my purpose when I’m helping creatives realize their worth. What lights me up is when a client come back to me and says that was the best that they ever felt about a creative opportunity, or that they no longer struggle with anxiety around outcomes. That they are living and performing authentically. It’s a beautiful thing to be a part of someone’s transformation and growth”.


-Shannon

"Creating Character" acting intensive coach

Jennifer Stone started her acting career at six years old in a theatre in Texas. She moved from stage to screen with her big break in Texas working alongside Robert Duvall and Michael Caine in Secondhand Lions. This transitioned her to move her career from Texas to Los Angeles where she did a myriad of jobs on both TV and film in drama and comedy. After years of working steadily and pounding the pavement she booked her most notable role as Harper Finkle, the unique friend to Selena Gomez's Alex Russo for over one hundred episodes and two Emmy awards for Outstanding Children's Programming on Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place. Since then she has worked with Slash from Guns & Roses as the villain in his first horror endeavor; written, produced, and co-starred in a full length feature; as well as taken the time to get her BSN in nursing.
