“Take care of business on and off the court” has always been my motto. Although my “sport” changed from cheerleading to tennis, my professional mentality will always be the same: wake up everyday and crush it! Here’s your motivation to end the week on a high-note! Push yourself to be your best - physically, mentally, and emotionally. And, if you have to transition from a pair of #bossbabe heels to tennis shoes, show everyone you can run just as fast in either. 😉👌
As I finish celebrating another birthday with the best people, I’m welcoming this next 365 with full commitment to these ideals: ✔️ challenging myself daily ✔️ building better relationships both online and in person ✔️ starting and ending each day with a smile ✔️ staying true to my personal brand ✔️ committing to having one heck of a time! Instagram Fam, thanks for being on this journey with me! What are You committed to right now? Xoxo, Shan 📸 @derricktribbey @derricktribbeyphoto
To bacon or not to bacon?🧐 I came for the healthy shrimp salad but tomorrow’s my birthday so calories don’t count right now, right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ The Mediterranean Shrimp Salad at @docbsrestaurant is my go-to. Reminds me of a crisp summer day with the perfect balance of mint, cucumbers and avocado vinaigrette dressing; like sailing off on a yacht into the Mediterranean. With a side of candied bacon, of course, because birthdays 😉🥓 #docbsrestaurant #birthdaymeal #candiedbacon
Not enough balsamic in the world could contain us. Happy birthday Jenny! Love you to the moon and back! 🎉
It's funny how momentum works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes the smallest of details can be the most discouraging and diminish any sense of self-worth. Anyone else? 🙋♀️ Fortunately, it works the other way as well. Small details can put the pep back into your step and get you on the fast track to success! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀I'm challenging you today to dig deeper, push harder, and reach farther to achieve your goals this week. Find an #accountabilitypartner to help you get the ball rolling! See last week? Put it in the trash -- you've been given a new one, so let's crush it! Send this to someone who needs to hear this today, because, believe me, I know all too well how easily things can spiral out of control. Love you all and wishing you the best Monday yet! Xo.
We just booked my fifth speaking engagement for the first quarter of 2020! 🎉 As a motivational speaker, consultant, and influencer, I love teaching corporations, executives, employees, and students about generational differences and emotional intelligence in the workplace. Now more than ever, it’s important that we strengthen our interpersonal skills as we navigate through multiple channels of communication — both in person and online! Looking for a speaker for your next event? Let’s chat! Link is in bio. : )
I am behind on posting. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today might be #NationalSmileDay, but honestly, I haven’t taken any photos lately that I “love,” picking apart each of my perceived flaws. And truthfully, it’s freaking exhausting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We only get one life, and if you don’t love the skin you are in, what’s the point? So here’s me just being silly. No filters, nothing staged, just me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks #crescentclubdallas for throwing a stellar #Gatsby party last night and giving me plenty of reasons to smile today!
If you follow my “stories”, you know that in 2019 my health has become increasingly more important to me. I’ve been spending more time in the gym and back on the court. Thanks @tbarmracquetclub for the warm welcome back to tennis. It’s been a breath of fresh air. Q: What have you been doing recently to be healthy & happy?
Wanna know what fuels me for the week? Green juice and an attitude that’s ready to slay. Let’s go, Monday! How do you set up your week for success? #MondayMotivation #MoreGreenJuicePlease #HealthyLiving
He Has Risen! Matthew 28.6 | I couldn’t make it back to KC for Easter, but grateful for wonderful friends who joined in the Celebration. Christ has Risen indeed.
Having a blast dining around Dallas, but cleaning up my health has taken priority in year two of living in this beautiful city. We only get one body, and I’ve learned the hard way over the last couple of years that I need to take better care of it. With that said, if you see more posts of gym selfies, protein smoothies, and tennis courts, #SorryImNotSorry. #HealthMatters #LetsDoThis!
You know that saying, “you are the average of the five friends you spend the most time with?” Well, I also believe you are the average of the five most reoccurring thoughts you have on a regular basis. Today, I am reminding myself that I am: - Choosing Joy - Grateful for health - My own superhero - Sweet potato tater tots are the bomb.com - Fresh air can cure all woes ******************************** What thoughts are the most reoccurring for you?
This week is a very special celebration for me! I have officially lived in beautiful Dallas for one whole year! ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ A very big ‘thank you’ to all my best friends and family for making me feel so loved on this journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To all my new friends — I am SO happy to add you to my life now as well : ) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ I’ve learned three valuable lessons in this last year that I’m sharing over on my Facebook page — I’d love to hear your thoughts! Xoxoxo and cheers to another year! 😊
Did you really even workout if you don’t have someone there to capture it? Kidding… but definitely relishing in the SUN now that it’s finally reappeared on planet Earth! 🏃♀️❤️
How do you prepare for the biggest client of your life? You start a conversation months in advance, call your mentors a million times, build out your talking points, throw them away, start again, revise revise revise, don’t sleep a WINK the night before, finally give in and get up at 4:30am, stage your backdrop, fight with your cat that she can’t sleep in her usual place, and at 9:00am CST, you lead a one hour webinar for Tesla’s global leaders from California to Amsterdam. You know you have a hard deadline at 10:00am and thank the team. Not one person got off the webinar and instead stayed for another 30 minutes to chat — even requesting additional information after the call. I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I ran off a stage crying. I’ve doubted myself. I’ve even let the naysayers get to me on occasion. But today was a day I’ll never forget. Thank you Tesla for allowing me to give you my thoughts on how to build a world class organization. Today was the honor of a lifetime.
Make a girl DJ for a day and she can conquer the world... or at least make everyone dance to #Tiesto on loop. Comment below ⬇️ if you are also ready for old man winter to go home. #SummerVibes #FBF #WhiteParty #NelsonAtkins
This #PolarVortex has me hunkered down inside so I figured I’d do an introduction post for all of my new friends on here! Here’s a little more about me - please tell me some random facts about you! * I gave my first speech at the #4H county fair at the age of 8. I fell in love with it. * I am the cat lady 💯. @misstaylormariethecat has been hanging with me for almost 15 years. * My first time out of the USA was with the #KansasCityChiefs. My first year as an NFL Cheerleader the team took our entire squad to Jamaica for photo shoots, interviews and practicing our routines for the season. It was amazing! * I really dislike sweets. I know, weird, right? I don’t crave them like most people! * I have an amazing sense of direction. No really, I can figure out my cardinal directions faster than you can say “peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers”. 😂👍😘
I’ve visited three countries, eight cities and too many weather changes in the last seven days. Want to know how I stay grounded? Reading books from some of my favorite people. -> 📚 Relentlessly learning, constantly growing, always evolving. Q: What do you do to stay grounded? #MotivationalSpeaker
Hide and seek anyone? 🙋♀️ Kidding! No reason to hide with a full week of work, fun, and new adventures! My 2019 is in full swing and I hope you are happily crushing your goals too!
1-1-2019: Reflecting and looking forward… It’s suffice to say the last few years were a little muddled for me. Professionally, I sometimes felt like I was a shell of myself. Personally, I sometimes felt like I was taking one step forward and three steps back. I lost people I never thought I’d lose. I lost things that had significance. I made weird mistakes. I won a few battles. I made a few new friends. As recent as last week I still sobbed at some of the turns. . But, life isn’t just an upward swing. We know that. It’s all part of our story whether we like it or not. It’s all a journey. And if we aren’t waking up trying everyday, even on the bad days, what’s the journey worth? . Today, I am really looking forward to 2019. I’m ready to get back to the reason why I became a speaker and entrepreneur: to inspire people. To make a difference in people’s lives. I feel like I’ve gotten away from that outside of my keynotes. And maybe you’ve felt it too. But here’s my promise to myself, to 2019 and to you - I’m going to show up every single day giving my absolute best. I hope you do too. And, I hope I can sprinkle a little inspiration, impact and sunshine into your life over these next 365. Let’s do this journey together. I’m rooting for you. I’ll always root for you. No matter how many weird turns you have on your journey too. . XO, Shan
Merry Christmas to you and yours! ❤️ I am cozied up next to the fire with family. Where are you celebrating today? ⭐️
I just got back from an amazing vaca in the Bahamas, and while I want to tell you all about it, the truth is, I’ve been heads down working my tush off the last three days. . I am ready to crush some major goals in 2019 and know I’ve got a lot of work ahead in order to do it. . How about you, what are you dreaming big about that you want to conquer these next 365? . LETS DO THIS. 📸 @kennyphotokc
I hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday weekend with the friends and family you love most. I’m spending today tackling ✌🏼goals before I head out for vacay! 1️⃣ working on my 2019 business plan! 2018 has been amazing - I’ve traveled to almost all 50 states to deliver keynote speeches and I plan to knock it out of the park next year too! 2️⃣ how can I grow even more personally and professionally? Goals aren’t always just career related, they are personal too! What are you working on this week?
Last week’s keynote on how to make rigatoni. Kidding. : ) Actually, 600 folks from around the world listened to my talk about leadership and emotional intelligence. Loved this group and hope to see them again! ❤️
It’s a gorgeous day in Dallas and I’m making the most of it! GFB = gym, football, baseball! Anyone else working out and watching games today? I ❤️ fall! 🏈⚾️💛
When your girl is crushing her dreams in the big 🍎 and you couldn’t be more proud. Love you sis, so glad to catch up today! #FormerNFLCheerleaders #KC #NYC
Skipping my way through Lyon, France! There never seems to be enough time to experience everything a new culture has to offer. The sites, cuisine, community, and so much more motivates me and gives me a new perspective on life. ✨ What motivates you?
My first summer in Dallas is coming to a close and this is what I’ve learned: 👉 It really is “touching the sun” hot down here 👉 Bird scooters have changed my life 👉 Love Field airport is more convenient than KCI airport (sorry KC ) 👉 Gourmet popsicles are a THING 👉 Grateful for technology to stay in touch with friends and fam 👉 Everything really is bigger in Texas (I need more hairspray for bigger hair ) 👉 Loving this new adventure! ❤️ Have you ever moved? What has been your favorite part of trying a new city? Xo.
As I fly out on the last day of September, it’s only fitting that I post this photo. This month marks my fifth anniversary of qualifying to be a member of the National Speaker’s Association. It’s been a whirlwind five years that has seen changes both personally and professionally, but I am grateful for where I am today. Cheers to the next five!
It may be cloudy and cool, but this trip has left me feeling inspired. Surrounding yourself with exceptional people will always take you exceptional places. Until next time #NYC.
There’s just something about NEW. New months, quarters, years... and the start of August has been especially awakening for me. I feel settled and alive and ready to tackle life! So be ready to see me working harder and pushing farther than ever before. #HappyAugust #Hustle #Grind

It’s been a few years since I cheered professionally but they were some of the best years of my life. This weekend, I’m pumped to be in Nashville with 450 fellow NFL Cheer Alumni from across the league to laugh, celebrate, and cheer each other on for all we have accomplished and what is yet to come! These women have changed my life and I couldn’t be more proud to be part of this group. ❤️💛
After a long week of traveling and speaking, it was great being back in Dallas and getting a morning workout in. What are your favorite ways to unwind?
Stop dreaming about that corner office and start hustling for that corner office. #hustlelikeyoumeanit #mondaymotivation
Motivation isn’t always easy. Especially when it involves a holiday midweek. But, I’m determined to make this year my best yet and that involves crushing it on this Friday. Here’s my shout out to ya to keep pushing hard today!! #ChasingDreams
Happy #IndependenceDay from Dallas y’all. Proud to be in this great country. Xo. 🇺🇸
Sometimes it’s okay to take a break from the office and enjoy the world around you. 💙
Turns out, none of us are super heroes. Been learning that the hard way as life has thrown me a few curve balls in recent years. While it’s fun to post “pretty” photos for social media, it’s not easy being vulnerable. That’s why I post this picture today. As a reminder that behind a “curated” social media feed, we are all still real people with the same organs, the same emotions, the same pains, the same fears. After a procedure this morning, I am going to be okay physically and mentally. But, I was saddened to wake up and learn of today’s tragic news. In memory of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, please hug someone a little tighter today. We don’t really know what’s going on in people’s lives. If you are reading this, I am honored to be part of your life and grateful you are in mine. YOU matter. We all matter. Life is worth living no matter what you are battling. Please don’t forget that. 🙏 (Grateful for my friend Kara for taking care of me these last couple of days and beyond grateful to nurses and doctors. Particularly: Debra, Chris, the anesthesiologist and Dr. D. And yes that’s a box of tissues because I couldn’t stop crying I was so scared. Ha! ). #TimeForUsToStartBeingRealWithEachOther #Vulnerability #BreneBrown
The modern working woman should always pack a classy non-work outfit just in case travel plans change. You never know where trains, planes, or automobiles will take you!
When packing for a recent trip, I noticed I always have my Apple earbuds for the flight and pack my camera so I can capture all the exciting and beautiful things I experience on the road. Traveling can be such an adventure. What are your must haves when traveling?
