Complaint / review text:
These days everyone and his brother is trying to make a living. The economy is tough and people are trying to get by. One of the newest waves of money making on the internet are life coaches.
I had been having a tough time in my career. I was starting a new business venture and really wanted it to be successful. I went online and life coaching popped up on my search. I pursued this avenue further and got on this man's site.
I was very inspired by his words, and when I spoke with him on the phone he appeared to be knowledgeable and solution oriented. Although a nice person, and I do not wish him ill but I do wish he would get proper training as he has none.
I wouldn't advertise to people that I could help them learn to be a architect because I'm a small business owner. Nor should a life coach advertise that he can help improve their business or personal lives.
It took many months for me to get around to writing this but it should be out there. Shannon has no Psych degree and doesn't know much or anything about how to help people. Much of what he shares he probably picked up in reading some books. It doesn't apply to my case and he ran out of guidance early on into his very pricey sessions.
He was additionally misleading me in my personal life which came up in a few sessions. He didn't understand my relationship and because I was in a fickle period thought I should move on. This was terrible advice or guidance. He made me focus on problems to solve. But the trouble was the problems would solve themselves as they weren't relevant or reflective of my relationship.
I never met him in person and I do believe it is because he is so very young. I found out he was only in his 20's, and barely out of school. I have mixed feelings sharing this information, but feel it is my duty. I hope this man will get certified and educate himself so that he does not meddle with other people and cause destruction.
I do not recommend this person. I do not wish him ill. But he is playing with fire by pushing people to make unwise choices.
