We had the good fortune of connecting with “Shameless” Shaleece Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi “Shameless” Shaleece, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
My podcast strives to bring knowledge and a better understanding to things that happen to and around us that I believe many don’t quite fully understand. I cover a range of topics and in the process, I have been able to educate, connect, and enlighten others who want to better understand others and the world they live in. Although my following is still small, I have received numerous messages that encourage me to keep going. I’ve been told that I am great at speaking and that the message is always there and that I’m a relatable individual who “gets it.” In the future, I would love to expand to meet more individuals face to face and hold events where others who strive for change and understanding can all meet and connect.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me apart from others is the fact that I am not afraid to be my true authentic self. In order to interview others, I must always show up open minded and ready to learn something that I may not have known. I cannot be judgmental in a space where I am aiming to get others to be less judgmental and open to change… not all changes are bad. I am where I am today due to my easy going and passionate nature. The individuals I choose to surround myself with are also huge motivators who keep me on my toes. I don’t believe anything in life is easy per say, but I will admit that being an open, easy going individual will always put you a step ahead of the crowd. One of the greatest lessons I learned along the way is that you have to be yourself completely. You cannot allow noise to drown out your goals and who you are. I want the world to know that it’s okay to be imperfect, to not want to strive for perfection. As long as you’re staying true to your journey and mission, life will always be blissful.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We’d probably spend the entire trip at the beach. That is where I go to feel the light of the world when it’s feeling a little heavy. The most fun places to go are the places you feel at home and at peace. I will admit that you aren’t fully experiencing San Diego if you don’t get some Mexican food during your stay.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
With my whole heart, I would love to thank Jaye Van Kirk for always encouraging me to speak up and to speak out. For listening to me speak about how I’d like to make change and my many ideas about how I could achieve that. She constantly affirms that I will go far in life as long as I stay true to myself and continue to be as passionate as I am. I’d also like to thank my mom, Tiffany Sanders, for verbally lifting my head high when I’m not feeling inspired or want to quit. She tells me that I can’t quit on those who I’m trying to uplift and she is absolutely correct. When I’m feeling at my lowest, she’s there to remind me why I’m here, who I am and my purpose. The world may feel big, but she makes me feel bigger.
