Are you ready to take control of your life and do amazing things?

You KNOW deep down you're meant to do something bigger and better with your life. 

And you would give anything to know what that "thing" is OR you've known what it is, but you're not making the massive progress you want to.

There is NOTHING more frustrating than wanting something so badly, but feeling powerless.

There is nothing worse than knowing you have so much POTENTIAL, but you're not using it.

That’s where I come in. 

Welcome to Recess School.

No matter how stuck you think you are, there is a way to break this funk of yours and create a kick ass life.  

You just need the right tools.  

You need the space (and freedom) to learn about yourself.  

You need some support and accountability.

Every day, I talk to people who tell me...

  •  They feel stuck in their day jobs
  •  They're confused about which direction to go in
  •  They don't have the confidence to make big changes
  •  They are overwhelmed with "how" to achieve their goals

If this is YOU, I totally get it.

I was a sales rep for a corporate giant fresh out of college. From the outside, it looked like I had everything "together," but my soul felt like it was eating away at itself.  

I wasted each day doing meaningless work and burying my potential. It was for sure the lowest point in my life.  

I was dying to escape, but I had $80,000 in student loan debt and no clue what the right move was.  

Something needed to change, but I had no idea where to start.  

Until I finally reached my breaking point! I woke up one morning, and thought to myself (scratch that…BELIEVED HARD) that "I am meant to do something far greater with my life."  

And that one belief is what drove me to quit my job (without a plan) and move 3,000 miles away in search of a solution.  

Books, coaches, motivational speakers–you name it, I did it! And while there were valuable bits and pieces everywhere in the self-help world, nothing gave me that 'CLEAR ROADMAP' to discover and build my dream career and life.

It was all so inspiring, but overwhelming! I made a million mistakes along the way. 

And I actually started to panic again. I had all this knowledge about improving my life, but was still unsure how to get it all working with me– AND as quickly and effieciently as possible. 

So I decided to get down to the bare bones of it all. And that's when the Passion to Profit Model was born.

It was through getting to know the ins and outs of myself, learning how to manage my brain and taking massive action that my life completely changed. I get paid to do work I love and I never dread Moday mornings! I wake up every morning with fun and inspiring to do's. I have the freedom to work on passion projects!

My life has completely changed!

"7 months ago, I was sitting in a cubicle at a terrible office job that did not challenge or motivate me whatsoever. I absolutely hated my job! With your guidance and practical advice, I was inspired to take massive action toward a better life. Today, I am proud to say that I own a brand-new property, work a much more fulfilling day job and I'm on the path toward running my very own music business full time. Thank you Shaina! Because of your influence, my life has completely changed!"

Kristen Basor, Columbus, Ohio

One of the best decisions I could've made for my future!

"One of the best decisions I could've made for my future! I was having a meltdown at work and hopelessly searching for encouragement when I found Shaina. I was stunned to find so many other people my age who felt the same way: stuck on a predefined, socially acceptable path which is downright miserable. I was tired of waiting for those precious hours each night or on the weekend when I could be free from my cubicle. I knew I had to do something. After completing Find Your Passion in 13 Days, I finally have an exit plan strategy. I'm quitting my corporate job at the end of the month and heading down a new path with renewed hope and optimism."

Megen Theobald, Salt Lake City, Utah

I was hesitant to invest my time and money into this program...

"I felt like I had tried everything. So I was hesitant to invest my time and money into this program, afraid that it wouldn't make a difference. But, I've already pointed other people in Shaina's direction! It's been such a breath of fresh air to have someone offer real solutions and be so supportive. I went from feeling like a failure to discovering my strength again. After reflecting on myself, my life and my goals, I take consistent action to bring my value into the world."

Amanda Meddaugh, Chicago, Illinois

The one and only coaching experience that has actually worked for me!

"Working with Shaina has been the one and only coaching experience that has actually worked for me, because her guidance shows how to make your own choices in a meaningful and present way. Without hesitation, I would recommend her coaching to anyone, and when I tell friends about my experience, I define it as literally, "life-changing". Shaina has taught and passed along tools to understand me; and from that foundation, I am able to mindfully determine how I want to show up in the world (which has been the best part of her coaching). In turn, I'm making my dreams MY reality. The impossible literally became possible. I never fully realized how passively I was living until she helped me uncover myself. I feel empowered and energetic about all of the great opportunities to come.

About Me

I'm Shaina Leis! I'm a Life Coach, Educator and 90's music fan living in sunny Los Angeles. Most days you can find me on my laptop in sweats and a messy bun.  

Here's the deal: I quit the corporate grind– in lots of debt– to find and build my dream career. BEST DECISION EVER! And now, I teach others how to break free from the wrong path, find their own passion and gain the confidence and self-discipline to pursue it.


“The best life coach I’ve come across on the internet! Thank you for helping us.” – Magalie Brunelle

"Shaina is the reason I've started my own business and am now my own boss! When I felt stuck, unmotivated and lost about my career choices, she helped me out of that rut. Through her teachings, I was able to sort through my situation, figure out what's most important and discover my passion. Shaina is more than a coach. Talking to her is like talking to a friend who has your best interest at heart. I'm so incredibly grateful. Thank you Shaina!"– Elizabeth Solis  

“If you love Shaina's channel and you're serious about making a change, you've gotta join this program! Since enrolling, I'm much happier, less stressed, excited and full of energy. Having a roadmap to get to where I want to go and who I want to be has been a game changer."” – Caren Saxe

"I was skeptical at first because of a bad experience I had with a career counselor. I didn't want to make another poor investment. But I'm so happy for my decision. It was worth every penny and totally changed my life! The course was my guide to clearing off my debts, making big decisions and discovering my passions. Today, I've completed my financial goals, quit my job and I'm zeroing in on my unique niche. You are simply awesome. Thank you for creating this course. I've already recommended it to my family and friends."– Parijat Rao

"Shaina has challenged me to break through the things that have been holding me back and has provided steadfast support, guidance and encourgament along the way. It's so comforting to have a mentor through this journey."– Caitlin Grant  

"I found myself crying almost every day, working long hours in a toxic environment. Feeling unchallenged at my job and being forced to bury my natural talents caused me to host my own pity party. That is until I found you. You've guided and motivated me to take one step after the other in the right direction. I start a new position in 2 weeks that I'm beyond excited for and now pursuing a long-lost dream of mine. Thank you for all you do Shaina."– Hannah Fredenberg  

"I'm so glad I found you! I felt so completely trapped by my situation. Thanks for broadening my perspctive and pushing the walls back."– Zoe Elisabeth  

“Breath of fresh air! If you want to hear from the perspective of someone who has experienced the shocking challenges of post-grad life and overcame these challenges, Shaina is the go-to expert on this topic! She's compassionate, kind, down to earth, and hilarious. She'll give you the truth when it comes to the change you need to make in your life to experience success. And she'll make you laugh while doing it! Thank you Shaina for shedding some light on these topics. You are a star, and I am so glad that I found you!” – Francesca Woltanski  

“I am grateful to have found you and your work. You have truly changed my life for the better!” – Sage Gray

Working with Shaina meant wiping the mirror clean, to see more explicitly, more fully and more lovingly me. – Alexandra Booth  

"I read every self-help book and spent years trying to figure out what I was passionate about! And then, I finally found you! And I'm so glad that I did. Now, I not only have clearly defined goals, but I love the person I've become. I feel happy, confident and inspired every day; something that was missing for so long. Because of you and your teachings, I'm actively building my dream career in fashion design and starting my own clothing line."– Sahana Chakraborty  

“I’ve been reborn! I’m writing the book I’ve always wanted to write– finally using my voice and unique talents!” –Harry Croose  

“Shaina Leis sounds like the genius best friend you wish you had. She's given me the inspiration to quit the job that I hate and do work that I'm actually proud of instead of work that just gets me by for now. She's approachable and brilliant without being condescending, and unlike a lot of other coaches, she doesn't pretend that her own life is perfect. Her relatability is unmatched and the world is, quite frankly, lucky to have her.”– Jessica Sager  

“I'm absolutely obsessed with the positivity you bring. You really help motivate us to get up and seize the day! I can't thank you enough for bringing out the good in people, and showing life in a positive way.” – Scott Hall

Give yourself the gift of connecting to YOU! Reclaim your confidence and discover who you are and what you really want." – Janai Brown  

“Shaina Leis is amazing! I could tell right away that she lives what she advocates. Her content, while directed towards helping Millennials, is helping me as a 44-year-old engineer, who is just starting a career. Everyone who is unhappy in a career choice could benefit from her work. She is the real deal!" – James William  

“If you're someone who struggles to take action toward their goals, you've gotta join this program! I'm a multi-passionate person who let fear and procrastination get the best of me. Since signing up, I'm finally taking real action steps and making things happen! Going from just learning the concepts to applying them has been a game changer." – Veronique Graves
