Coming from a World of poverty, Shavannah Moore managed to break free and live out her purpose: To Empower & Inspire Women Globally. She instills in women to not only look back at where you come from, but to reach back and LEAD. Shavannah was a high school dropout, who was told that she would never amount to anything beyond where she was at the time. She later went back to finish school because she knew there was a higher calling on her life and it would begin with her Determination. With years of struggling, being a single parent in poverty, nights of sleeping in her car, going from house to house, facing molestation, and later having to give her child to the father temporarily Shavannah came to the realization that enough was enough.

Why did you enter into this industry?
I have a passion for cooking and empowering women in all areas of their life!
What challenges did you face launching your business?
1. Financial challenge 2. Having limited support and help with my children 3. Making tough decisions pertaining to next steps, contracts, and team member. 4. Transforming my mindset to walk in the abundance I am currently in.
What experiences did you learn from corporate America?
Leadership played a HUGE role in carrying over from the Corporate Industry to being my own BOSS. It taught me to how to LEAD and not manage. It taught me resilience and more importantly it taught me what to do and what not to do when I hired my own team. When your employees are happy your company is more prone to being a success!
What helped you transition from corporate employee to entrepreneur?
I was laid off and had to stretch my faith and walk in my calling. What helped me was the fact that I had become spiritually grounded and prepared for this moment prior to this happening. Therefore I had to move forward not knowing all the answers but just knowing that IT CAN BE DONE!
What tools do you use to help manage your business?
Social Media Management Outsourcing
Mailchimp (about to upgrade to a better platform)
I wake up between 4-5am every morning. Pray/meditate. Brew Coffee, get in my office & start working. Wake the kids up at 6am for school. Drop everyone off. Come back to my home office and work until they get out of school. In the evenings I come back home, help with homework, cook dinner spend time with the kids then resume back to working until my priorities are met for that day’s production (could be as early as 9pm or late as 2am before I stop working for that day). Of course when Im on the road speaking, my schedule alters a little but for the most part this is standard (although every day can be slightly different with kids!)
‘I was once afraid of people saying, “Who does she think she is?” Now I have the courage to stand and say, “This is who I am.’ ~ OprahWinfrey
3 Things in your purse you cannot live without:
My wallet, my Ruby Woo lipstick, lotion (because I wash my hands so frequently)
Advice I would give to my younger self:
You are not who society says you are, you are who God says you are. So hold your head high, stand in your truth and embrace the journey for this journey is NOT about you but who you are called to serve!
Fortunately, Anyone can excel in life!
