I’m Shanna Mann, business + life coach for freelancers and other self-employed people. I’m an entrepreneur myself, so I know how intimately intertwined business issues are with personal hang-ups. I also know that trying to separate the two is like trying to separate a snail from its shell.

That’s why I don’t even bother to try. Instead, I use my unique hybrid of business and life coaching to help you get out of your own way and make sure all your hard work is moving you in the right direction.

If the vibe around here suits you (sweary, edgy, adamantly against taking life too seriously), I’d suggest you sign up for the CataLyst below. It’s just like Change Catalyst, only more so.


Three times a month, you’ll get:

  • Hard-core advice on excellence in business, life and the immaculate integration thereof
  • Black-belt-level development theory delivered straight to your inbox. (Because, shit, why are you on this earth if not to become the best possible version of yourself in all aspects of your life?)

You’ll also get access to the members’ Library, which includes gems like:

  • Be The Boss: a 5-module course that’ll teach you crucial foundational skills and start you down the path to being one of those on-top-of-things people you admire

  • Making Changes Guide: best practices and tips for handling change in one tidy package

  • Interpreting Your Instincts Template: an approach to working with your instincts that’s way less annoying and more helpful than the usual “go with your gut” advice

And as if all that wasn’t enough already, you’ll get first dibs on pretty much anything I’m doing with Change Catalyst.

What now?
