  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    I am fueled by my passion for PEOPLE - connecting with them, cultivating meaningful relationships, and helping them succeed. I aim to add value beyond the relationships I create and sustain by facilitating strategic conversations and connections that foster personal and professional growth. Ultimately, my goal is to create a positive impact on the lives of those I connect with.
  • About me
    After a staggering 30 years of stumbling through various client-facing adventures, I've become a master of all trades! I've dabbled in everything from hospitality to film and TV production, publishing to technology, healthcare to call centers. They say I'm as versatile as a chameleon with a touch of business brilliance.

    I've conquered operations, conquered accounting (well, most of the time), and even conquered the hearts of clients nationwide as a sales superstar. But that's not all! I've also assembled dream teams of client success extraordinaire, crafting world-class squads that rival the Avengers. Talk about multitasking!

    Now, let me share a bit about my wild upbringing. Picture this: I bounced around the good ol' US of A like a pogo stick, thanks to my fearless Marine Corp fighter pilot dad. From Yuma, AZ, to Southern California, and even a detour to Bozeman, MT, for college, I've finally settled in Nashville since 1993. Oh, and did I mention my partner in crime, Ricky? We've been partners in laughter, love, and mild chaos since 1995. Together, we've raised two extraordinary daughters, Cassie and Autumn, and to top it all off, we've got a grandson named Benjamin, who brings an extra sprinkle of joy to our lives.

  • Unique Selling Proposition
    Experienced entrepreneurs and professionals understand the power of strategic relationships for sustainable business growth. However, weekly meetings are time-consuming, and finding a high-quality network that goes beyond surface-level connections can be a challenge. NIA offers an award-winning monthly alternative – an exclusive mastermind and referral community committed to accelerating small to mid-sized businesses, free from "salesy" pitches.

    What sets my NIA franchise apart is my distinctive contribution as the owner and operator. I meticulously curate my groups, striving to foster a community that I both respect and enjoy. Additionally, I actively participate in extensive networking and advocate for the benefit of my members. In my role as a strategic business coach, I offer valuable assistance with ideas, tools, and resources, enabling them to expand their businesses beyond the opportunities provided by the group's relationships.

    2) "I'm not meeting the right people" OR "There are no owners or decision-makers and too many salespeople."
    3) "It's all about quantity, not quality." OR "People are 'salesy' or very transactional vs. focused on building strategic relationships."
    4) "I'm not getting the results I want."
    5) "I value word-of-mouth referrals but I'm not meeting the right people."
    6) "I don't enjoy it anymore." OR "I don't see any value in it."
    7) "I feel disconnected from the community." OR "I would prefer to be a part of a business community focused on relationships to grow my business."
  • Describe How You Would Like To Be Introduced Via Email

    Dear [Name],

    I would like to introduce you to Shannon McGee, owner of Network In Action - an exclusive community of highly engaged and experienced business owners and professionals. Unlike traditional networking groups, NIA has a unique model that only meets monthly without "salesy" pitches, and Shannon has built a remarkable community. She is a natural connector who takes the art of connecting to the next level and helps her members achieve outstanding results. Based on your approach (and professionalism), I believe that you would be a great fit for NIA and wanted to make sure that you and Shannon connect.

    I’ll let the two of you take it from here!

    Best regards,
    [Your Name]
