Interview with Shann Vander Leek, Certified Professional Coach and Founder ~ True Balance Life Coaching, LLC

Tell us about your business.

True Balance Life Coaching was created because it is my observation that healthy personal development, as well as the success of a small business, absolutely depends on aligning your business goals with your lifestyle choices and grounding them in your core values.

Our clients begin the coaching process by strengthening their personal foundation, setting realistic goals based on core values, and eliminating some of the stressors in their lives.

At True Balance Life Coaching, we inspire Women in Transition and Creative Entrepreneurs to set Big Goals, Achieve Extraordinary Results and Create Balance in their lives.

Please tell us what being a business owner means to you and why you became an entrepreneur in the first place?
I became a certified professional coach and business owner because it gave me the chance to be completely independent and allowed me to reinvent my life on my terms. I have created a rich and full life dedicated to personal freedom, creative expression and the opportunity to deliver a meaningful coaching service.

What or who has been your greatest influence in business and why?
I am grateful for over 16 years corporate sales, leadership and marketing experience. My past leadership roles prepared me to become a successful entrepreneur.

My greatest influence has been my own self discovery and complete metamorphosis with the caring support of my brilliant mentor coach, Deb Martin

What would you say is your greatest professional accomplishment to date?
Inspiring hundreds of women to embrace the importance of self care through balanced living along with becoming a best selling Co-author of Wake Up Women Be Happy, Healthy & Wealthy.

What’s the best advice you have received in business that you wish to pass on to our readers?
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs

What one thing have you learned as a small business owner that has served you well over the years?
Learn how to honor your natural rhythms and understand that becoming a successful entrepreneur takes time, devotion and an unlimited supply of confidence.

Are there any resources or tools you’d like to share with other small business owners that have helped you succeed?
