In the first annual “Ask Shannon” episode of the podcast, listeners and readers have sent in their questions. With an episode full of the answers, this extra full episode (75 minutes) will address the topics of eating well, traveling to Paris: where to say and what to do, adhering and refreshing your signature style, my personal strength training routine, how to get your “mojo” back after life has thrown you an unexpected twist and this is just a taste.

  1. What a delight this episode was to listen to! Thank you for being willing to share so much of yourself with us. I enjoyed hearing how you separate your work day from your time at home, some of your daily routines, your perspective on happiness, and how love and passion serve as the engine to your life. So excited for your new book!

  2. Thanks for your generous answers. I’m healing from a concussion and have to avoid screens and reading. Your pod cast has been a wonderful oasis. Thanks so very much.
