Shannon Whaley Traveling Wildwoman!
Women's business and marketing coach - works with passionate and driven service based entrepreneurs, taking side gigs and turning them into sustainable businesses.
Lisa gets sidetracked to begin with, forgets to eat and then buys a really expensive salad.
Has been doing this for a while, but has kind of changed and morphed all along.
Just broke up with 3 year boyfriend, and is moving to Italy. Longest relationship except cats, who are living with her mom.
She thinks a lot of people start coaching to live wherever they want.
Hannah Dixon (listen to the episode with Hanna here) Location independent.
Danielle LaPorte - amazing author on figuring out what you want to feel, to be the person you want to be.
Shannon's core desired feelings: ease, passion, freedom, adventure. (I use these when I'm making decisions, will they get me closer or father away from my mission?)
Intuitive feelings with excitement or trepidation "don't do this!"
"Now that I'm sober, I have more access to those feelings." - Shannon
"I have a feeling, I don't know how often I listen to my intuition" - Lisa
Met boyfriend long before they got together, she was a cocktail waitress in Seattle, he was a DD for his friends.
2013 - Left Seattle and moving to San Diego to be a hairstylist, but also had to be a waitress to support her growing hair business. But really didn't want to do the same thing she was doing in Seattle.
Was invited to Cayman Islands by boyfriend to visit, and moved there because she wanted to do something different. Her boyfriend was already sober, she knew she was done and needed a clean start.
"of course I was that girl and came home wasted" - Shannon

Profit First by Mike Michalowicz
Working with a money strategist coach - Carrie Fry Williams
You want two checking accounts.
All business money goes into business checking.
All personal money goes into personal checking.
one is profit / one is taxes
All business money goes in to business checking, and pay myself twice a month from there.

There are so many horror stories about people handing their money over to someone and getting stolen from.

"I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing to make money" -Lisa
"It's my sugar daddy, it pays for me and the cat, and my 30 year old daughter-not really" -Lisa
I want to show women that it's okay to be human. I don't want to do stand up anymore, but I want to go speak, and inspire women through my comedy. I want to journey with them. That's how I want to make my money, plus it's location independent.
I know there are things that I'm supposed to be doing...
