Yu Dan's Journey, her own Inner Genius Discovery, and Credentials
Hi, I am Yu Dan Shi.
Having completed university at age 17, and becoming a Chief Marketing Officer at age 30, I know what success looks like in the traditional sense. Having held executive positions while raising a family, I understand the daily demands life throw at us. My elder daughter is now at university.
However, in 2008, I went through a very dark period of my life where I lost my passion and motivation for my career that ended up impacting my health, which almost cost my life.
I did not want to continue my marketing executive career but had no other skills to fall back on that would provide me the same level of income. I was stuck.
To climb back from rock bottom meant I had to do something completely differently.
I was determined to find an answer without turning my life upside down or creating any disruption to my family.
I knew that my feeling of unhappiness was caused by a deep disconnection - the me showing up every day was only the glimpse of the real Yu Dan, and for some weird reason, I was afraid of letting the real me shine, scared that everything I had accumulated up to that point (family, career, money) would disappear, as if the real me is some useless creature.
Inner Genius - Corporate to Coach Journey
But deep down, I knew I had something in me and I was here to do more than just cruise along.
I began a search for an answer.
Essentially, becoming a coach & mentor was my calling and the natural next step of my career, so it was for many professionals and leaders who strive for a more meaningful life.
However, there was no roadmap on how to transition from a corporate executive to a coach & mentor. The journey can get bumpy without guidance.
I now run a thriving practice. I love what I do. I have the freedom to work in my own hours and get to spend time on the things that truly matter in life.
I would love to be part of your amazing journey.
