Hi, I'm Shannon, creator of Harmonize and Thrive. I'm glad you found my comfy corner of the internet.

My mission with Harmonize and Thrive is simple:

to bridge the gap between work and well-being so professionals and solopreneurs can thrive at both!

What Led Me to Create Harmonize and Thrive

My journey to creating Harmonize and Thrive began with a series of profound, life-altering events:

The unexpected loss of my father, the end of a decade-long marriage, and the challenges of solo parenting four wonderful children set me on a relentless quest for success.

This pursuit was more than just ambition; it was a deep-seated need to prove that I could thrive independently while providing the best possible life for my children.

The Cost of Overachievement

In my determination to excel, I unknowingly embraced workaholism. The endless cycle of striving for perfection and overworking took a severe toll on my health, both mentally and physically. It wasn't until I reached the point of burnout, which led to hospitalization, that I was forced to pause and reflect.

A Revelation in Stillness

This period of forced stillness was a blessing in disguise. It allowed me to confront and understand the root cause of my stress, anxiety, and overworking tendencies – undiagnosed ADHD. This revelation was a turning point. During my recovery, I made a promise to myself and my children: I would do things differently.

A New Definition of Success

That promise led me to discover holistic methods for ADHD management, healing and inner peace, which fundamentally changed how I define success.

I shifted my focus from external achievements to internal peace and well-being.

Commitment to Well-being and Inspiration

Now, with a renewed commitment to self-care and a holistic approach to life, I've channeled my experiences and insights into Harmonize and Thrive.

My goal is to bridge the gap between work and well-being, offering insights, strategies, and support to others who may be facing similar challenges.

Through my wellness coaching, corporate workshops, and content development, I aim to empower individuals and organizations to thrive in both their personal and professional lives, just as I am learning to do.

A Promise Fulfilled

Harmonize and Thrive is more than a newsletter; it's a fulfillment of the promise I made to myself and my children. It's a testament to the belief that true success encompasses both work and well-being, and that one can flourish in both, with the right mindset and support.

Now, I have to be honest

  2. Taking Action
