name | Danise Sumner

company | The Busy Bee Productivity Coaching, LLC

Years in Business? |  1 year

1 | When did you consider yourself a success?: When I booked my first client! If I can change one life through my coaching, or help a client make positive changes, I consider that a success.

2 | What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?: My mission is bigger than me - I’m here to change lives through my career as a reading specialist and life coach with my business.

3 | What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?: I’d love to get better handwriting and learn calligraphy. I did learn a little and did my own wedding invitations, but I’d like to find my unique style. I’d also love to learn more about photography!

4 | How would your friends describe you?: Inspiring, funny, driven, outgoing, and caring.

5 | What is your favorite quote?: So hard to pick just one!!! Probably “Our Deepest Fear” by Marianne Williamson!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
