I also want to talk to you about joining my Facebook group. I know you have heard this from a lot of people over and over and over again. But it’s part of my practice to start fostering community in a bigger way and I want to invite you to be a part of that.

Go to and join our Facebook group to receive guidance, support and community around the effort of putting yourself out there. We’ll share resources, contacts, and opportunities because that’s how I am shifting the paradigm of public relations.

During my interview with Shauna we discuss:

  • What she does for her clients
  • How her business evolved
  • Her take on publicity and what has it done for her business
  • How she lands media placements
  • How she has been able to change the way she talks about coaching to make herself stand out from the crowd
  • What’s next for her in terms of visibility
