Leannda Shearer, The Resilience Coach

Introduce yourself! Please tell us about you and your life, so we can get to know you better.

I am Leannda, also known as Lee. I am a small-town Idaho girl who discovered she loved the ocean like the mountains. This love led me to Hawaii, where I met my husband and became a military spouse. We are the proud parents of a spirited girl and two doggies. I enjoy reading, rock climbing, yoga, and decaf cinnamon honey lattes. What is your business name, and how do you help your clients?

My business name is The Resilience Coach. Resiliency is one of our most essential skills to create a thriving life. My coaching is based on building boundaries, clearing your space (mental and physical), reawakening your creativity, and cultivating strong mindsets. What kind of audience do you target your business towards?

My ideal clients are those who struggle with perfectionism and boundaries. When working with these, individuals are often overwhelmed, stressed, burned out, and overcommitted to their schedules. I show them the strength, power, and confidence that come when you start ditching the perfectionist mindset and setting boundaries. I use these as well to help my clients get clear on their true desires to help them invent a life with sustainable routines and personalized roadmaps. Doing this with my clients takes them from simply going through the day-to-day to thriving. What are your current goals for your business?

I have lots of wishes for my business. This year includes releasing my course Foundations, which gives you a solid and thoughtful foundation to set any goal and return to it again. I also hope to release my podcast later this year as well.

What would you like to achieve for yourself and your business in the future?

When I think about what I would like to achieve, it’s the same in both areas. Freedom. Freedom to pursue my purpose and spend my time on what makes me the happiest, and financial freedom Who inspires you to be the best that you can be?

My husband and daughter always inspire me to be the best version of myself and not take things so seriously. I am also constantly inspired and lifted by all the amazing women I get to call my friends. They are in construction, UX, communication, law, engineering, small business owners, and fearless mamas. They constantly show me that anything is possible. What is your work inspired by?

My work is inspired by my love of helping people, which was born out of my being an outcast at a younger age. That challenging experience motivated me to be an open and safe person for people to turn to, hoping to help them know they are not alone. I also hit a dark patch about 18 months after my daughter was born and found myself facing the question of “What now?” I had to reinvent myself pushed me to seek out others who were going through the same time and be a light to show them that anything is possible.

How do you keep going with life coaching when the world feels so heavy?

The world is heavy right now; there’s so much chaos, uncertainty, and divisions. And it is heavy. But my answer to this is pretty simple. Yes, the world is serious, but amongst all the heaviness, there is still light, love, and connection. And right now, more than ever is when we need to find that. Being a life coach helps people look towards the future, for a better lot for themselves, which impacts those around you and the world. The other thing that keeps me going is that we need more people who focus on the light. Being a beacon of light and positivity keeps me going.

If you could change one thing about your industry, what would it be and why?

Off the top of my head, I can’t think of anything. The coaching community is so friendly, supportive, and growing so fast. All good things! Tell us about a pivotal moment in your life that brought you to where you are today.

About two years ago, we were a couple of months out from our next military move. I had been coaching a friend of mine all summer, and it hit me; this is what I should do. Not only is it something that I love and am good at, but I can do it anywhere the military sends us. This would help ease the burden of finding new employment wherever we go. I started looking up life coaching courses and decided on Beautiful You Coaching Academy. A year after making that decision, I graduated from my class, ready to step into my purpose.
