“God has turned my Mess into a Message” and “My Setbacks are only a Setup for my Comeback.”

Charismatic, encouraging, giving, loyal, and inspiring, these are just a few words to describe Shana “the Control Freak” Naylor. This self-proclaimed “control freak” is a woman walking in her purpose, passionately carrying out her mission to empower people worldwide to “take control of their lives”.

Shana has been professionally inspiring others for over 15 years as a certified corporate trainer, to take control of their future by starting with their vision of success. She has always been known for her ability to build trust and to under promise but over deliver; with the outstanding recognition she developed a love for providing exceptional customer service. In her career as a corporate trainer she trained all level employees from new hires to C-Level.  Early on in her life she also found a love for Real Estate, which was originally her dad’s idea so that she could have an additional income as a Single Mom.

On stage, Shana has been known to engage the crowd with her authenticity. Her unique combination of “being real”, her wit and intellect is sure to leave you inspired and ready to make positive changes for increased success.

Shana is an example of how one can overcome any difficulties in life. Her favorite sayings are “God has turned my Mess into a Message” and “My Setbacks are only a Setup for my Comeback.” Refusing to be a product of her past, a statistic, or live by the labels and limits of others, Shana is unapologetically living her life the way God designed! She has allowed her life experiences to be a testimony to others on how they too can overcome.

She has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Texas Woman’s University, she is a certified Professional Trainer and also a certified Life Coach.  Her career as a Realtor fits perfectly with her passion for helping others achieve their dream. In 2016, she launched Shifting Beyond Normal, a success based coaching and training company committed to training people to rewrite their story and how the power of intentional choice can create a defining difference to move them from a life of status quo – to living life by design.  She is also the founder of “The Real Single Moms Club” an organization devoted to provide opportunities and experiences that educate, equip and empower single moms to reach their full potential in spite of challenges they may face.  Her motivation is her family, her “key to success” is her Babygirl-Key. Her daughter is her biggest supporter and passionately joins her movement to “Redefine the Image of Single Moms” by refusing to be the negative stereotype generally associated with children raised by single parents.

Shana’s Signature 4 Step Strategy, Upgrade Your NORM™, is her proven success formula that she has used to catapult her achievements throughout her life – both personally and professionally.  She teaches career driven women who feel stuck identify what’s holding them hostage from pursuing their dream. They finally break free from the norm and gain the confidence to map out a plan and step boldly onto their new path and into their new purpose.
