Today we’d like to introduce you to Shienna Johnson.
Shienna, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’m the “natural healer” in my family (every family has one). I’ve been obsessed with crystals since I was nine years old. Someone gave me an amethyst and told me what it was, and I was hooked. I began to learn more in school, but by college, I wasn’t sure how to use my passion and turn it into a career. I decided to become a Geology minor just so I could learn more.
I graduated with a double major in Psychology and Dance. I was always the friend who was unique because of my spiritual indigenous beliefs and vegetarianism, but everyone would always come to me for advice on all things natural. After college, I traveled a lot learning so much about where different crystals come from and collecting gems along the way.
Once I got back from my travels, I settled into a cushy corporate job in the fitness industry. The days were long, but I learned so much about running a business that I decided to start my own. I wanted to be able to help people cope with being an adult, and I wanted to show people that happiness is dependent only on themselves.
I began explaining the crystals I wore and put in my drinking water to everyone who would ask and Quantum Gems was born. We sell crystals of all shapes and sizes, Natural Beauty products, and the “Life Detox” which helps to switch your entire life over to more natural and plant-based.
I love talking to people about how crystals can enhance their lives because they’ve definitely made mine better.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
In 2007, my mother had brain surgery to remove a tumor on a nerve in her ear. She came out of the surgery unable to walk or clearly talk. Using natural organic foods, movement & crystal therapy, I helped her to regain her confidence first. Then we walked the beaches until she was able to walk without a walker.
Lastly, I helped her learn to clearly communicate her needs without constantly apologizing for her slurred speech. She worked hard and is an active grandmother today. She still has issues that we deal with as they come up but assisting her in her transition was eye-opening.
I realized that people in the world have issues they can overcome if only they had the confidence. Crystals and a natural lifestyle gave my mother the confidence to move forward with her life and thrive.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Quantum Gems story. Tell us more about the business.
Quantum Gems is a business dedicated to helping people take control of their lives. We sell crystals, natural beauty products, and have self-care awareness services designed for you to be the best version of yourself.
I am most proud of communicating the fact that we are all magic and can have our hearts desires, but you’ve got to attract things to yourself. I teach tools for people to take back their power and take control over their lives. We live by the philosophy that “thoughts are things” and it’s through these thoughts that we shape our realities.
What sets us apart is that we show clients how to manifest their desires into the physical. We do this by Offering natural alternatives to every aspect of life. Our Life Detox is a customized care package that helps people take time for self-care. We have exercises, products, and discussions to help the community heal collectively.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Good luck has always been a part my life and my company because that’s the business we are in. I’ve always remained positive and upbeat about my business offerings with the mantra “If you build it, they will come.”
I don’t subscribe to the mindset of lack or inadequacy and always take time to take care of myself. In helping people I’ve learned that you have to believe that anything is possible in order for it to happen to you
