Career Pivot for Women and Mom’s with Career Coach, Podcast Host, entrepreneur & Founder of Second Act Success Shannon Russell

Welcome to the Wellbeing and career world podcast, I am delighted to be chatting with Television Producer turned mom, turned entrepreneur, turned Career Coach, and host of the Second Act Success Podcast. Shannon spent over 16 years as a Television Producer in New York City and Los Angeles. She then decided to stop producing shows for others and start "producing" her own life. Shannon pivoted to open her own business running a successful Snapology franchise teaching children STEM education. After being asked my so many people how she made such a drastic career change, Shannon launched a second business with Second Act Success (, where she coaches women
to "produce" their best life by changing careers, starting a business, and following their creative passions to the fullest. Shannon shares her journey from television executive to business owner and mom, through her Second Act Success Podcast, as she interviews inspirational women who have made the leap into a career change and transitioned into a happier healthier human. Shannon hopes to motivate more women to make big moves in life and follow their dreams through her businesses and podcast. After all, we have one life to live so why not have many careers and adventures along the way!.
