Meet Shannon Asmus
At this point everything was going incredible the only thing missing was the Mom part of her dreams. However on March 5, 2008 Hailey Marie Asmus was born and her goal of being a Mom was met. This also caused her to want to make some business changes. Running a promotional company that goes to bars isn’t the way she wanted to raise her children.
Shannon started looking at all the different places she had worked and what the opportunities where at each of them. After years of management experience in those different industries, she focused on the Tanning industry. She knew the owners of a local health club and they didn’t have any tanning beds. She knew that members of a gym were the perfect target audience for a tanning business. So she put together a plan, presented it to the owners and made it happen. She had now opened her first business on her own. Shannon proved to everyone she could do anything she put her mind to by running a successful tanning salon. Crossing yet another goal/dream off her list.
In Dec 2008 her husband [Pete Asmus] was becoming increasingly successful in real estate and they decided to end there daily jobs that were distracting them from what really mattered, Their children and their real estate business. She realized that she could be a mom who was capable of running a business from the privacy of her own home all while raising their children without a nanny. It was important for shannon to be extremely involved with her kids. [She had thought from an early age she wouldn’t be able to have any.]
Shannon works from anywhere and helps run several successful companies; from being an organizer and scheduling events, workshops and meetings, to being a photographer, magazine editor and radio producer she does it all. When you also include 10 diaper changes, lunch, dinner and raising children she really is a “Momtrepreneur“. Shannon is an amazing role model and has proven how to be a successful entrepreneur, all while being a Mom and including her family every step of the way. Her families goal is to “raise entrepreneurs that will change the world.”
