INTERVIEW | Shaniece M. Wise, Author of Activating Your Gifts @ShanieceMWise

Shaniece, tell us about yourself.

I am a mother, daughter, sister, cousin, friend and soon to be wife that loves God and loves life. I love to travel, read, and spend time with those close to me. I am a Risk Taker and I am open to opportunities that allow me to use my gifts.

I am a Speaker, Personal and Business Development Coach, Executive Trainer and Author who helps others identify, activate, and maximize their gifts. As a coach, I consider myself an “Activation Specialists,” who empowers people in discovering and activating their interest, developing a career around their interest, and turning that passion into income. I bring these strategies to life through fifteen years of success in direct selling, coaching, and mentoring. My successful experiences have provided me with both the confidence and knowledge to teach audiences across the United States how to move from a place of survival, to a place of thriving by turning thoughts into actions.

I am also the founder of the Unstoppable Community TN. Unstoppable Community is a community for Entrepreneurs, Aspiring Entrepreneurs and Professionals that are looking to grow personally and professionally in order to serve others with their gifts.

I do Motivational Speaking all over the United States teaching how to Activate Your Gifts, Maximize Your Opportunities, and How To Be Unstoppable.

Over the last fifteen years I have traveled around the United States teaching and coaching on self-motivation, growth and development, and how to live life with expectation. After years of experience, I transitioned from being an Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics, driving the Pink Cadillac, to my purpose, which was developing Coaching Practice where I could change lives all over the world.

How do you find time to connect with God?

I am a very spiritual person. I connect with God in so many ways but my number one way is through prayer. I devote mornings for devotional time but connect with him all through out the day. I speak to God like he is my father and I am his daughter.

Tell us about your journey to publication.

After death, divorce, depression, trials, and tribulations, I birthed and then ultimately wrote and published a self-help workbook titled “Activating Your Gifts”. In this workbook, I teach the “birthing” techniques that I have had to use on myself in order to deliver and nurture a healthy future after life knocked me off of her feet. I teach techniques on how to identify what makes you happy in life, what your true purpose is, and how you can serve others with your gifts in order to create a life of abundance. I teach that it is okay to be your own authentic self, and how important it is to get over past regrets in order to become the person you are destined to be. There are activities in the book that teach how to develop personally so your professional life can thrive.

Tell us about your current book?

“Activating Your Gifts” is the first workbook in the “Awakening Series. It is designed to aid you in identifying your gift that God has put inside of you. The goal of this workbook is to make you feel uncomfortable in operating in the same place. My prayer is that it causes you to want to shift from a place of being complacent, and challenge you to be exactly what you are supposed to be; no longer just existing, but thriving and living an abundant life. It is designed to make you look at yourself, identify what you enjoy, and allow you to dream again. It is designed to assist you with letting some things go that may be blocking you from your successful future and a life of abundance.

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

I came up with my title after writing for a month about my life, what I’ve seen, the different things that I have encountered up until this point. One of the things that stood out to me the most is when I began writing about the different people in my life, the different people that I have been exposed to, built relationships with, either in business or corporate America. I realized that there were so many amazing people out there that were playing small. That they were sleep walking through life. After speaking with them, I would find myself making the same comment and asking the same question “wow you would be great at……, why are you just settling”.

As a Personal and Business Development Coach and Executive Trainer, I work and have worked with so many amazing people who could change the world but are/were playing too small, they are afraid to JUMP and be the person that they are destined to be. I wanted to create a Workbook that people could use to identify their God Given Gifts, activate those Gifts and attach them to the correct vehicles, in order create the type of life that they desire. That is where “Activating Your Gifts” was birthed.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

That all of us have amazing gifts inside of us and your gifts are attached to other people’s blessings. If you do not walk in your gift, other people will not be blessed. Choose today to identify, activate and maximize your gift.

What’s next for you?

I am currently working on my E-Book. I plan on going on a Speaking Tour stopping in the different cities in Ohio beginning in August 2017. I am a Personal and Business Development Coach so I work with my clients on turning books into business and creating multiple sources of income.
