Meet Shannon. Owner of Embracing the Brilliance and corporate finance executive turned multi-passionate entrepreneur and business strategist for solopreneurs

Meet Shannon

Shannon Garrison Negi is a business strategist, Soulpreneur, and crazy mom whose mission is to help women deal with overwhelm, lack of confidence, and disorganization in their business and life.

She is a former corporate finance executive turned multi-passionate entrepreneur, and recently relocated from NYC to the suburbs of Colorado with her two children, husband, and dogs Tyson & Vinnie.

She has many driving forces on her journey, the biggest one being her kids and the ability to provide them with opportunities and adventures as they grow up. Seeing women reach their dreams, take control of their lives and embrace the brilliance that already exists within them is what really lights her up. She has a huge fire in her heart that makes her want to shout from the rooftops daily and dance like a maniac.

Just last year, she decided she could not continue on with being in a “normal” 9-5 job. She finally realized that working her ass off to line the pockets of bosses who did not share her values wasn’t the way she wanted to live her life. She’s spent the last six months focusing on herself and stepping into her own brilliance. She’s learned that there are several basics in life that if you allow yourself to embrace them they will open up so much abundance as you go on your journey. She believes the universe really does listen and show up when you ask it to.

Be Kind! Have genuine concern for others. Go out of your way to help someone. The Universe gives you back 100 times over what you put out to the world.
