Still Going Pro
Based on her blog, Still Going Pro Just Not in My Sport, Shanta empowers her audience by applying the sports mentras that we know and love to business, career and life beyond athletics.
Spoiled By God – book reading
For years Shanta did not believe that she had anything to talk about as a motivational speaker. But, an unexpected turn of events in the fall of 2005 changed that perspective. She was a full scholarship track athlete whose goals were lay waste when a track injury led to the discovery of a malignant tumor in her body. After a total knee replacement, four rounds of chemotherapy, and a clean bill-of-health, Shanta shares the details of her ordeal, the comeback, and the many lessons she learned through the experience. The audience gets to journey with Shanta on this hour-long experience as she brings to life exerts from her memoir. Her empowering perspective on the challenges of life inspires her audiences to break through their own barricades and find true beauty in their circumstances. Her energetic personality and provocative speech moves her listeners to embrace life and that accept that we are all so…Spoiled By God.
In this talk Shanta
shares what it meant for her to overcome the challenges of low self-esteem and
people pleasing. She challenges her audience to embrace all of who God created
them to be (“perfections” and “imperfections”) and choose to be the
“Thermostat” setting temperature in every environments on their life
Not and Individual Sport
Shanta takes her experience as a participant in an individual sport, track& field, to another level. She challenges youth groups and churches to live out their love for one another and those around them and to look to their group for solidarity and to be their “team” in the race of life.
Fearfully and Wonderfully Made
In this talk, Shanta shares her story of transformation from an insecure teenager striving to people please into a self-assured and confident woman after finding my identity (in Jesus Christ) (The talk covers: overcoming low self-esteem and raising ones self-image and self-value, and being the best “you” one can be).
Shanta knows a thing or two about not establishing personal boundaries at an adequate distance. In this talk she shares her very intimate life experience of making such a mistake as a student in college and the emotional dissonance that came as a result.
Being a Student Athlete
Shanta shares her story and experience of being a collegiate scholarship track athlete, how she got there and the many lessons she learned along the way. This talk emphasizes the significance of focus, discipline, academics, preparedness, study-skills, and thriving as a student and an athlete.
This is a one-hour presentation in which Shanta challenges the mindset of attendees when it comes to taking control of their finances. Attendees will learn an effective method to organize and micromanage their money.
The Workshop is strictly a personal budget and managing program designed after the EasyBudget finance planning tool created by Shanta. It does not impose financial goals but rather offers attendees a clear perspective of their finances to help them set and achieve reasonable goals by being diligent micromanagers of their own money.
Similar to above, this is a personal one hour and fifteen minute coaching session (two hours for small groups up to five participants) where Shanta walks participants through the money-micromanaging strategy of EasyBudget and helps them hand-create a paper version of their personal EasyBudget. Participants can also choose to purchase the Excel version of EasyBudget, created by Shanta, to be delivered at the time of the coaching session.
