If You Dont Know, Now You Know

Hi,

I'm  Big Shannon Herod

I think you will understand where the big comes from when you meet my wife :-) I am a serial entrepreneur, photographer, and videographer. I am the furthest thing from a personal development guru or coach. However, I have found that people enjoy it when I share my journey, when I share my ups and downs and how I am navigating through this life.

This site is about the journey and doing my best to learn from my mistakes. I hope that in some way you find something that helps you on this site.

I am truly blessed with a beautiful wife, a healthy and strong son, an amazing and beautiful daughter, and a group of friends (more like family) that most people only dream possible. I have worked from the comfort of my home for over a decade and love the freedom that working for myself gives my family.

This site is not all about losing weight and getting in shape. It is not about depression and anxiety. That will be a big focus, but the real value comes from sharing the journey. I want to share my wins, but mostly I want to share my failures and what I have learned from those failures

What makes me so qualified? To be honest, nothing. However, I have been through it. I deal with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and addiction (nicotine) on a daily bases. I am not a fitness guru that has been in shape my entire life. I ballooned up to almost 300 pounds at my heaviest, and I was a smoker for 12 years, I was on anti-anxiety and depression medication, I was plagued with suicidal thoughts.

My point is this... we all have our struggles, fears, and shortcomings. The difference is how we deal with what is throw our way. We have a choice... to let our past mistakes and current challenges hold us down, or to push through... Learn from our mistakes... and get better.

That is what this site, and what my wife and I are about. Knowing we are not perfect, however, realizing we are all put here for a purpose and we all have greatness inside of us. All it takes is just moving a little bit forward every day.

At the time I am writing this, I am still 30 pounds from my goal weight. I still struggle with depression and anxiety daily. However, I am pushing forward and building a better me every day. I am glad you are here, and I want to personally invite you to join my wife and me on this journey!
