The Intersection of Healing and Entrepreneurship

What sets Shawniel apart is her ability to balance the worlds of healing and entrepreneurship. She emphasizes that the path to success is often not taught in traditional educational settings. Many therapists and counselors focus on emotions and the desire to help, but they may lack the financial knowledge and business acumen needed to sustain and grow their practices.

The Mindset Shift: From Scarcity to Abundance

Shawniel highlights the importance of shifting from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset. When she graduated in 2014, many of her professors and colleagues believed that therapists should prioritize impact over income. Shawniel realized that she needed to work on her mindset to break free from this limiting belief. She connected with a community that believed in being both impactful and financially successful.

Financial Empowerment and Taking the Leap

Shawniel’s journey into entrepreneurship wasn’t without its challenges. She encourages therapists to invest in their professional development and business skills. She believes that therapists can come from a place of abundance and should not be afraid to learn and grow financially. This investment not only benefits their own lives but also allows them to better serve their clients.

Balancing Impact and Income

Therapists often grapple with the balance between making a difference and earning a living. Shawniel advises therapists to come from a place of overflow. By replenishing their own physical, spiritual, and financial well-being, they can better serve their clients and model the importance of abundance.

“We don’t wait in the wings and check in every so often either. With our boutique approach, we position ourselves front and center, watching over every dollar that comes in and out of your business as if it was our own. So if your business is making money, and you’re ready to take it to the next level, but you’re not sure you completely understand your numbers, and you’re looking for that trusted guide to help you build a roadmap to reach your financial goals”
