Introduce yourself and the nature of your coaching business:
Hi, I'm Shawnte Mckinnon the CEO of Mckinnon Strategic Consulting Group and the Money Mindset Mastery (Business Financial Coaching Course). I’ve always had an affinity for numbers and people. Little did I know how impactful the intersection of those two passions would truly be.
I initially set out to be a psychologist”, but as fate would have it, I found myself on a 14- year career path of accounting and finance. After serving four years in the United States Air Force and working in corporate, I pursued my degrees in Business Administration. I went on to earn an undergrad in Business Administration and then an MBA with the Jack Welch Management Institute. “Who better than to learn from other than one of the greatest CEOs of our time?”
What inspired you to become a coach?
The pivotal moment happened when I was notified that my position was being phased out and my services were no longer needed. This wouldn’t have been such a big deal if this wasn’t the third time that this happened…. Yes, I said a third time that I was placed in a position where I had to walk away from a role. Once I made the decision to walk away, I had no choice but to shift my mindset and develop what I now refer to as a “healthy money mindset.” I was good at what I did. I have the accolades and reviews to prove it, but it wasn’t enough to sustain my positions in such a volatile marketplace.
This fueled my passion to help others to shift how they view money and their businesses when times are uncertain. That’s why I created my signature program Money Mindset Mastery. I’m taking my years of expertise in the financial industry to help small businesses and entrepreneurs, like you, to level up so you too can manage your money, create financial freedom, and make a positive impact!
What top 2 problems does your coaching solve?
Economic Sustainability and Strategic Development. I coach entrepreneurs and business owners on how to develop a healthy relationship with money for the sustainability of their business in any economic climate and how to develop strategic plans to successfully pivot to sustain and grow revenue streams.
Any advice to readers that may be facing those problems right now?
Yes, be flexible, and don’t be ashamed to ask for the necessary help. Invest in a professional that can help you navigate through times of uncertainty (us of course!). I believe you will find a great return on this investment. Learn and Pivot!
