K.I.S.H. Magazine Exclusive Interview with Trailblazer Shawnte Mckinnon!

KISH: Tell us about you…

Shawnte: I guess you can say I’m a serial entrepreneur. I’m a media host, author, business strategy consultant, and coach.  I’ve worked as a finance and accounting professional for over 14 years. Additionally, I’m a minister and magazine contributor. I’m rolling out a new coaching course this year entitled, “The Global Money Mindset Mastery”.

KISH: What is your dream and how will accomplishing your dream benefit you and others?

Shawnte: My dream is to impart life, hope, and dreams into others by way of avenues God has gifted me through writing, coaching, consulting, and ministering. I’ve had to break many chains in my life; thus, I’m vengeance to set the captives free from areas that once held me bound.

KISH: Who or what inspired you to pursue this dream?

Shawnte: Truthfully, it was God-inspired. I’ve faced challenges in life that seemed insurmountable but God gave me determination. I’ve always had the heart to see others succeed. This is how many of my endeavors started.

KISH: What challenges have you encountered while pursuing your dream?

Shawnte: Honestly, it’s growing amidst weeds. Any gardener knows for a flower to fully bloom it must pull the weeds from around it. If not pulled, the weeds will stifle the growth of the flower. I’ve had many weeds to attempt to stifle my growth. When the adversary wants to dismantle you, he comes after what matters.  In my case,  he came for my heart, money, health, influence, voice, career, reputation, and family… you name it! I understood if he was coming for me this hard, all at one time, my living is a significant threat to hell.

KISH: Who or what inspired you to keep pushing regardless of the challenges you’ve encountered?

Shawnte: Leaders that have gone before me. God has sent great pastors, mentors, leaders, and coaches into my life. I love when God sends someone out of the blue to tell me to snap out of it and finish the assignment.

KISH: Please provide final thoughts/advice for others by finishing this sentence… dream.

Shawnte: Do not focus on the naysayers, doubters, or people who do not want you to have or accomplish much. Their wants are insignificant to God’s plans. Keep going, there’s much success ahead of you! Dream and execute!
