Shannon D. Smith, MCCT
HR Certified Trainer & Certified Coach
I’m a career strategist, instructional designer and trainer with over 15 years of experience in the corporate world. A self-proclaimed “career nerd,” I authored Empowered to Upgrade: The Ultimate Blueprint to Take Control of Your Career, a guide to help professionals take control of their careers.
I understand the importance of taking control of your career and creating a life you love, so I provide training and support through my company, Ever Learning, to help individuals and organizations achieve personal and professional development goals.
When I’m not coaching, writing, speaking or training, you can find me hanging out with my three daughters and son, enjoying a good cup of coffee or curled up with a good book.
Connection-It is important to me that I relate well to others and make them feel understood and heard.
Excellence- I will always bring my A-game to every session and consistently invest in my professional development. I hold myself to a high standard so I can serve with professional excellence.
Mindset- I believe everything starts with the mind. My coaching is designed to challenge the way you currently think about yourself and what you believe you deserve. This type of deep work is powerful and can produce life-changing results.
I’m not about gimmicks and fads. I do what works, not what’s popular. I also do not believe in working with everyone. Money is not my motivation. Helping people experience real career satisfaction and personal transformation is.
My pride and joy are my three daughters and son. They have truly inspired and motivated me to become the best version of myself. I am so proud to have them call me mom! I built my business and transformed my career to change their lives and to be an example they could be proud of.
