Shannon Guild

Small Business Consultant & Brand Strategist
After spending 15 years in a strategic planning role at a Fortune 100 financial services firm, Shannon left to pursue her true passion: helping purpose-driven entrepreneurs grow their businesses and illuminate their brands.  Her expertise lies in clarifying the big picture objectives and working backwards to develop actionable strategies to bring them to fruition.   Having been directly responsible for starting six entrepreneurial endeavors herself over the last ten years, Shannon has a keen understanding of business planning and development, implementation, and the roller coaster ride that transpires along the way. 

Wearing the many hats of all things strategy at Papermoon, Shannon helps clients define and simplify their who, what, where, when, how, and most importantly, their why. Her happy place is translating those foundational discoveries into core messages, offerings, and experiences for brands and individuals alike.
