Women's Small Business Month: Meet Shanna A. Jefferson

Introduce yourself and brand to the Visions of Greatness audience.

I am Shanna A. Jefferson. I hail from Allendale, SC graduating in 2002 from Allendale-Fairfax High School. Upon graduation, I matriculated to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill earning my Bachelors of Public Policy and Master of Social Work degrees. Currently, I am enrolled in a Doctor of Business Administration program.



My life motto is “For to whom much is given, of him much shall be required”. With that being said, my primary passion and purpose in life is to serve as an agent of change. I haven’t been fed with a silver spoons in the traditional sense of the saying. However, I’ve been blessed with the silver spoon filled with grace, gratitude, humility, integrity, faith, service, divine connections, and the spirit of greatness.


Professionally, I am a Business Coach, Author, Speaker, Psychotherapist, and Talk Show Host. As the CEO and Visionary of Visions of Greatness Enterprises, I empower, educate and equip entrepreneurs to take a holistic approach in their life and business.


Why did you pursue entrepreneurship?

I’ve always been an entrepreneur primarily stemming from the hustler mentality embedded in me by my Father, Mr. George M. Jefferson. Upon retiring as an educator following 33 years of service, my Father hustled to support his family. He became the watermelon man, tapeman, peachman…you name it! I have vivid memories of essentially going door to door with my Father as he got his hustle on. Furthermore, my greatest lessons and values in life stem from my humble upbringing.

What nuggets of greatness would you share with aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs?

The power of believing in you, having faith, demonstrating perseverance, never giving up, stepping out of your comfort zone, and giving credit to the Most High is life-changing.


Beyond that, you must always remember your why and play to WIN!





What is next for you and your brand in 2020?

The remaining months of 2020 as well as the New Year will be filled with new ventures, opportunities, and blessings!


As I shared on a recent episode of the Visions of Greatness Talk Show, “2020 Ain’t Over…Let’s WIN Together”! It is imperative that entrepreneurs finish the year strong. Streamline your systems, delegate tasks, launch that new product or service, write that book, improve your morning routine, hire that coach! Whatever it is for you, do it!


As the CEO and Visionary of Visions of Greatness Enterprises, I am excited regarding the manifestation of nothing but Greatness to close out 2020.


On November 1, we will launch our self-paced Unleash Your Greatness e-course which provides the aspiring as well as emerging opportunity with a framework to explore roadblocks, improve mental clarity, decrease overwhelm, increase productivity and more!


In addition, we are currently seeking entrepreneurs to share their journey in our upcoming anthology, Visions of Greatness! The Early Bird promo ends November 1!


On November 15, we will launch the 1st course in our brand new Visions of Greatness Academy! I am super excited about this opportunity to connect with more visionaries as we navigate life and business together!


And we have a few more exciting opportunities just for entrepreneurs coming in 2020!

Be sure to text Visionary to 77948 to stay connected!
