I Just (Have a Vision)! Now What? Angel Shannon

Hey Friends,  


Today we’re talking about dreams and vision!   My guest Angel Shannon started off on one path of her career and after doing the work, investing the time and even going into debt to get her Masters, realized it wasn’t what she wanted.  She had a vision for doing something different, building something better from the ground up!  So she did something that many may not have had the courage to do, especially after investing so much into her precious career, she followed gut and the vision she had.  


Angel V. Shannon, MS, CRNP is a personal development keynote speaker, board certified nurse practitioner and founder of Seva Health and The Seva Institute. Her inspiring presentations are drawn from nearly three decades of clinical practice and lifetime study of integrative health and mind-body medicine. Through courses, coaching, community and radical self-compassion practice, Angel teaches overworked professionals how to break free from burnout and gain the clarity, courage and confidence they need to design the life they deserve.
