Shannon Lee, owner of Shannon Lee Strategy, was inspired to start her business in 2010 after spending 20 years in corporate marketing. “I was ready to get out. I wanted to simplify online marketing. Marketing strategists often talk over potential clients. I’ve found that if you explain things in simpler terms, you gain trust and get the business,” she explains.
In her work as a marketing strategist she helps entrepreneurs simplify their online strategy. She says her work has influenced the success of large and small business organizations, non-profits, and entrepreneurs.
Shannon looked up to Sue B. Zimmerman, an Instagram expert, so much she hired her as a mentor for her own business.
Shannon’s biggest struggle may come as a surprise, but her biggest challenge is marketing herself. “I have no problems telling my clients what to do, but when it comes to my work, I get stuck! Luckily, I have a mastermind of other strategists who are help me.”
She advises someone who has a full time job but is interested in starting a business to work around their day job before going out on their own and to believe in themselves.
Shannon says being a member of the MOB Alliance has changed her business on both a personal and profession level. Personally, she’s made great friends, and on the business side she has gained referrals for new business.
She shares that one of her favorite MOB Alliance benefits is the tightknit and active Alliance community. “The Facebook group is very active and there's always someone to help when it's needed.”
Shannon’s best referral is someone looking for marketing coaching. Her special offer for Alliance members is $20/month off her coaching programs and any referral who signs up, earns the referrer $50.
