The Compass Sessions

Compass Sessions

Create the freedom and adventure you crave. Life live to the fullest. Enjoy the present moment. Find adventure in the everyday.

You feel lost and unsure of what direction you want to take next. You’ve fallen out of love with the life you are living and you’re tired of feeling “humdrum”. You have dreams – and big ones!

You know you want more, but you don’t know where to begin.

You want to travel more, live where you want, do the work you love, make more money, go on adventures, give back to amazing charities, and change the world!

You want to LIVE, loving life to the fullest.

But you feel stuck and scared. And you don’t know how to move forward or change.  You don’t want things to stay the same, and you’re afraid life is passing you by.

Sometimes you find yourself thinking that the life you dream of is only for other people, not you.

Here’s the thing…you always have a choice. Yes, you have barriers and hurdles that need to be overcome. We all do. But how YOU live your life is YOUR choice. The life you dream of is for you and you have the power to make it happen.

It’s time to get in touch with your inner compass.

I know what it’s like:

A few years ago, I felt the same. I was working and living in DC, and though I was happy-ish, I felt like something was missing.

I was tired all the time, struggling to figure out my life purpose, and started feeling disconnected from all the things I once loved.

Today, I’m in a completely different place.


I’m exploring the world with my photographer/videographer fiancé, living life to the fullest, and making the money I need to support my lifestyle all while doing the things I love.

I too used to fear life would pass me by, and that I would find myself stuck in the same place. That all my dreams would become distant memories of chances not taken. Then I realized in order to start living the way I wanted, I needed to start taking more risks.

Since then I’ve been on a personal quest to expand my comfort zone and let go of some of the fear and anxiety that’s been holding me back for most of my life. In just one year, my life has changed drastically. I’m now living the life I had been waiting to live for so long.

I want to see more women embrace their inner adventurista and cultivate their inner courage to break down the barriers holding them back. I want them to follow their dreams and live life on their own terms, doing the work they love.

The Compass Sessions are all about about becoming the person you need to be in order to get the freedom and adventure you crave.

We’ll work together in a series of three 1-hr sessions to:

  • Narrow your focus
  • Get you unstuck and motivated
  • Determine your true passions
  • Address any barriers and limiting thoughts that are holding you back from living life to the fullest
  • Determine how you want to live your life
  • Then we’ll develop a concrete action plan with goal of making it happen in the next 12-18 months.

I’ll hold you accountable, challenge you, and shine a light on your strengths.

The result? More courage, more confidence and an unshakable belief in what you’re capable of creating.

Here’s exactly what you’ll get:

  • 3 60 minute coaching Sessions (over a 2-month period)

What my clients say about working with me:

Shannon is a keen observer with the ability to provide an amazing vehicle for looking at your life, mapping out a mission, and determining what’s holding you back and what you need to move forward. For years, I dreamt of starting an international travel photography business but was unsure of the way forward. Shannon exceeded all my expectations. She tapped into my soul and helped me see my vision more clearly. Shannon provides the tools needed to shape an enduring, effective business in a comfortable, yet fun environment. The Life Adventurista is a diamond in the rough, and having Shannon’s guidance has not only been the reason for my ultimate success, I consider my work with her as the foundation of my current journey.

E.P, Photographer/Videographer

Thank you so much for our first session! You really got me jazzed up and helped me shift my thinking about starting to do things now rather than waiting. Since our session, I’ve been brainstorming ways I can start teaching right away after my certification and thinking about starting my blog again. I’m excited about this shift and I think it will bear fruit. You inspired me so much to think about how many other young women I know doing amazing things. I mean if people that young can accomplish that much, why not me? 🙂 -M.M

I just wanted you to know I worked up the courage to finish an application for an xray assignment in. …antarctica! I don’t know if I have a snowballs chance and it would be challenging to make arrangements for my children and possibly postpone my return to school for a semester but what’s important is I’m actually considering it! Previously I would never thought it was possible. I wouldn’t want to think about the sacrifice s we would have to make. But now I crave adventure and am focusing more than before on things that will fulfill me. my family is important but so am I. So, thank you Shannon for pushing me to LIVE my life instead of just “living”it. -Amanda
