Today we’d like to introduce you to Shaniece Benson.
Hi Shaniece, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
My journey started in 2013 when I decided to pack up my car and move across the country from New Hampshire to California with nothing but hope and the wind at my back – I was going to land on my feet. I knew the only way for me to become the woman I envisioned was to leave everything I knew – my friends, family, and comfort zone, and wander into the unknown. I HAD to become uncomfortable. Six years ago, I started my blog “Bloom by Shaniece” to share self-development, health, and fitness tips for those looking for a little guidance. At the time, my mission was to share content that would not only help women grow mentally but allow them to push themselves physically and to feel more inspired to get out of their comfort zones. The more posts I made, the more emails I received asking for my advice, which brought me so much fulfillment. I love being able to help people; it is genuinely one of my passions. Fast forward to today, after the successful launch of my blog Bloombyshaniece.com, I expanded Bloom by offering one-on-one fitness and lifestyle coaching services specifically tailored to each client’s needs. Bloom Fitness Academy has provided me the platform to reach a broader audience and share tips for an overall healthier, more productive lifestyle for those looking for guidance.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was not a smooth ride because I could see what I wanted to eventually do but had no idea how to get there. At times I was overwhelmed and uncertain of my purpose. As time went on, however, things started to become more clear as a result of me slowly tweaking the platform from just a motivation site for women to a full-on coaching platform. It was three years in the making. I didn’t know how I was going to help others, but I knew I would! I felt alive! At that stage in my life, I have found my purpose.
I broke the mold by being the first in my immediate family to not only graduate high school but to continue with my education and obtain an undergraduate degree from college (Southern New Hampshire University) and become a small business owner. Being a role model to my 15 nieces and nephews became the number one reason why I continued to push through the adversities and uncertainty; I wanted to instill in them the importance of hard work, discipline, and the desire to never give up because eventually, you will get there. I wanted to show them that they will see your dreams manifest themselves and they too could do anything their heart desired. Breaking the mold was something I wanted to do, and I did it!
