About “Activating Your Gifts”: After death, divorce, depression, trials, and tribulations, on May 2016, Shaniece M.

In this workbook, she teaches the “birthing” techniques she had to use on herself in order to deliver and nurture a healthy future after life knocked her off of her feet. She teaches techniques on how to identify what makes you happy in life, what your true purpose is, and how you can serve others with your gifts in order to create a life of abundance. She teaches that it is okay to be your own authentic self, and how important it is to get over past regrets in order to become the person you are destined to be. There are activities in the book that teach how to develop personally so your professional life can thrive. She has also published an activation activity CD titled “Working On You.” This CD has activities that complement the workbook.

Q & A with Shaniece M. Wise
A&RBC: Thank you so much for this interview, Can you tell us where you are from?
A&RBC: How did you come up with your title?
I came up with my title after writing for a month about my life, what I’ve seen, the different things that I have encountered up until this point. One of the things that stood out to me the most is when I began writing about the different people in my life, the different people that I have been exposed to, built relationships with, either in business or corporate America. I realized that there were so many amazing people out there that were playing small. That they were sleep walking through life. After speaking with them, I would find myself making the same comment and asking the same question “wow you would be great at……, why are you just settling”.
As a Personal and Business Development Coach and Executive Trainer, I work and have worked with so many amazing people who could change the world but are/were playing too small, they are afraid to JUMP and be the person that they are destined to be. I wanted to create a Workbook that people could use to identify their God Given Gifts, activate those Gifts and attach them to the correct vehicles, in order create the type of life that they desire. That is where “Activating Your Gifts” was birthed.
A&RBC: They say you can judge a book by its cover. Can you tell us a little about your cover and who designed it?
I actually came up with my color scheme and my aunt designed my logo “unstoppable” that appears on the cover. Being unstoppable is who I am. Underneath the logo is says Identify. Activate. Maximize. That is how I teach my clients to develop their gifts. There are strategies that I teach around the development of all three areas.
A&RBC: Can you tell us something about your book that would make me run out and buy it?
Yes, I believe this book will absolutely change your life. My gift is to teach and this is not a normal book, it is a workbook that teaches and then you have to do the activity. I believe that is the best way of learning. You will learn techniques on how to move past your regrets, pains, issues and strongholds to build the life you desire. It teaches you how to be ok with who you are, who you were created to be. How to self-motivate and truly be unstoppable. The world needs more Inspirational and Motivational Books. People need to feel empowered, they need to know that there is hope. Especially in the African American Community. Too many people are taking lives or losing lives because they feel there is no hope. My goal is for people to understand that there is hope. No matter what has gone on in their life, there is still hope and they have a special gift inside of them that needs to be seen and heard.
A&RBC: Are there any messages in this book that you want the reader to know about?
Yes, that all of us have amazing gifts inside of us and your gifts are attached to other people’s blessings. If you do not walk in your gift, other people will not be blessed. Choose today to identify, activate and maximize your gift.
A&RBC: What was your most favorite chapter to write and why?
The Chapter I titled “Who You Be” was my favorite because it makes you look at yourself. People think motivation comes from others, but in all honestly it comes from within. People who you see succeed in life have mastered the strategy of Self-Motivation. Some people are born with this skill and some need to learn. I teach a strategy on how to learn how to self-motivate because at the end of the day, you are the number one player on your team.
A&RBC: Why did you feel you had to write this book?
I went through a period in my life where I did not think I was good enough, pretty enough and I compared myself to others for so long. People always thought I had it together. Good grades, graduated from college, great family, raised with both parents in my home and great business. It is easy to look at someone from the outside in.
During this dark period of my life I was broken in many pieces. I did not realize my gifts, I did not realize my purpose. I felt like I was in a deep dark hole.
There is a saying, “show me your friends and I will show you your future”. The exciting news was I had great people around me who helped me remember who I was and what I was capable of doing.
I learned how to motivate myself so I did not stay in that place. I used what I had learned along to put the pieces of my puzzle back together. I learned how to grow and develop, understand my purpose and my gifts. I worked through my pain and regained my strength, got back on my feet and continued my journey. If I can do it, then so can anyone else. I wrote this book to give others hope. To let others know that no matter what they go through they can make it. There is a special gift inside that is waiting to be birthed. This is a gift inside that is waiting to be activated.
A&RBC: Now, some fun questions – What deep dark secret would you like to share with us?
I don’t know if this is a deep dark secret but I absolutely love roller coasters. I love to sit in the front seat with my hands up in the air. It’s the rush, the risk taker side of me. It makes me empowered, like I can do anything.
I also still love Cartoons lol, even when I am not watching them with my son. “Scooby Dooby Doo, Where Are You”…..lol lol
A&RBC: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Paris, Italy because I have always been fond of Paris. The people the culture, the way they live, their style of dress, their food.
A&RBC: Are you a morning person or a night person?
I am more of a morning person.
A&RBC: Are there any members in your family who also like to write?
Yes, we all enjoy writing, I am just the first to publish a book. But I will not be the only.
A&RBC: As a child, were you a dreamer?
Yes, I was a dreamer and risk taker
A&RBC: Last but not least, the magic genie has granted you one wish. What would that be?
As a Personal and Business Development Coach, my wish would be to coach women all over the world that desires to move to the next level in their career or business. My gift is to teach and my goal is to be able to teach at the highest level possible. I want to teach women all over that there is no limit to what they can do or become. I want to teach them how to develop the skills to create the lifestyle that they desire. I want to teach them how to “Activate Their Gifts”.

“Activating Your Gifts Workbook”
What Is This Workbook Designed To Do?
This is the first workbook in the “Awakening Series: Activating Your Gift.” It is designed to aid you in identifying your gift that God has put inside of you. The goal of this workbook is to make you feel uncomfortable in operating in the same place. My prayer is that it causes you to want to shift from a place of being complacent, and challenge you to be exactly what you are supposed to be; no longer just existing, but thriving and living an abundant life. It is designed to make you look at yourself, identify what you enjoy, and allow you to dream again. It is designed to assist you with letting some things go that may be blocking you from your successful future and a life of abundance.
The Activation Process is about development and growth. It is about getting to know your gifts and strengths. Realizing that you already have exactly what you need to be successful, you must learn how to activate it. The ultimate goal is to operate in a career that you absolutely love, create an organization that changes the world, and become the person that you are destined to be.
When you break down the Activation Process, the first step is to identify what your gifts and strengths are. That is the focus of this workbook. You must identify what makes you happy and what brings you joy. The definition of “Identify” means to establish or indicate who or what (someone or something) is. This is the first step to beginning your journey.
Once you identify what your gift is, you use the tools provided to get into action and activate it. This is where you research, develop, figure out your target markets, build your customer base, and execute. This definition of “Activation” is to make (something) active or operative; to convert (a substance, molecule, etc.) into a reactive form.
The last piece of the Activation Process is where you maximize your gifts and strengths in a way that allows you to earn an income. This is where the sky is the limit for you. The definition of “Maximize” is to make as large or great as possible; to make the best use of.
Your journey starts today and it starts now!
