About Me

Head shot of Shannon Farris

Hello!  I’m Shannon. Entrepreneur, coach, consultant.  Animal lover, joy seeker, life-long learner.  I live in a gorgeous seaside town in Nova Scotia where I take long walks on the beach, bask in sunrise and sunset, find joy in nature and get into the ocean as often as I can.

I created this space for us to connect, knowing it will always be positive.  It is a place to share, learn something new and to inspire more joy in our lives.
