Shanna Skidmore - Blueprint Retreat - Belong Magazine - blog

WHO ARE YOU? / I'm a big fan of authenticity, loving others with the gifts you're given and not taking it all too seriously.  

WHERE DO YOU BELONG? / Lord, you are my dwelling place, you are my home. - Psalm 90:1

WHAT IS YOUR "WHY"? / To see women live lives free of expectation with authentic definitions of success. To see women stop hating their flaws, but live boldly and freely in their gifts. To serve the Lord and give him glory in all that I do.  

HOW DID YOU GET HERE? / My husband and I moved to Atlanta five years ago after I'd been working in finance for quite a while. We moved here for my husband to pursue his dream of designing and building airplanes. At first I felt I was here to support him during this season .. but throughout this journey the Lord has promised me that He had a reason for me here too. My curiosity lead me from a startup fashion designer to sweeping floors for a floral designer. Only through taking big leaps of faith and continually following my curiosity, I found a "gap in the market" that my skill-sets uniquely fit. Two years ago I started a business development company for creative entrepreneurs which has brought my passions all together. Like a puzzle of misfit pieces that finally found their home.
