“Choice. You Have the Power”

Every day is a new adventure with endless opportunities to either thrive or dive, and sometimes both in the same 24-hours. The choices you make throughout the day, from the very moment you wake, can determine the fun or fight you’ll have with each oncoming wave.
Shannon, an eternal optimist, knows this well. Encouraged from a young age to make choices, and taught to be responsible for those choices, as Shannon’s world expanded with age and experience she further learned there is power and freedom in choice. She has enjoyed the positive impact that can be realized when choosing with intention.
Choice is a freedom that every person possesses. Through her choices, words and actions, Shannon is living her mission – ‘make connections and bring joy’. In doing so, she’s inspired others to see that the life you lead, like the business you’re growing, is shaped by the many choices you make.

  • True North is more than a compass setting. Be pointed toward helpful resources to clarify your purpose.
  • Language matters. Learn words that inspire and how to wear them.
  • PBR is not just a hipster beverage. Feel why in just 60-seconds.
  • Every single person has a story. Draw out a new friend’s in your first meeting.

Shannon K Semmerling is an eternal optimist; by choice. She is also a public relations practitioner, community advocate, and yoga instructor.
Connected, for good, Shannon has led communications for organizations in athletics, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, non-profit and retail industries. In 2014, she established Ask Shannon PR, LLC, an independent practice that provides clients with public relations and strategic communication services. A registered yoga teacher (200RYT) since 2018, she also now guides students of varying experience through classes that help contribute to more connected lives – on and off the yoga mat.
