Shanon Boos

Overcoming Mediocrity


Shanon Boos

Shanon’s middle name is Resilience. From being a high school dropout to a six-figure earner and national achiever, she is limitless. She grew up through family dysfunction, including multiple divorces, alienation from her biological father, poverty, molestation, and teen pregnancy. A high school dropout faced with an unwanted pregnancy, her hard knocks weren’t over yet. Before she found God, she went through another decade of poor decisions, unhealthy relationships with people, and money.

She found it easy to earn money with natural leadership skills and work ethic. However, managing her finances/emotions was the hard part. She wasn’t raised with financial responsibility. Thankfully, she ended up in a bank job and learned the skills needed to really succeed.

She became financially self-sufficient as an author and business consultant with a team of agents. Shanon is launching an Evangelism Speaking Ministry centered around teaching believers to share their faith with permission using turtles as a tool.

If you are a believer that has traditionally been afraid to share your faith, the TOFP Movement is for you. As a person who did not believe for many years and resisted any “unwanted” efforts at evangelism. I want to encourage and empower believers to share their faith without fear — with permission. When done in love and with permission, the gospel is received without resistance.

Overcoming Mediocrity - Volume VI

INFLUENTIAL WOMEN - These stories are meant to inspire and encourage women to realize their true potential.





Brenda Schmid

Brenda was born into a Christian family in Grand Rapids, MI, on Valentine’s Day, 1954. From kindergarten until the day she graduated from Calvin College with a BA in sociology, she attended Christian schools. Brenda believes that her strong Christian foundation shaped her life in a positive, wonderful way.

Brenda moved to Chicago when she was in her late twenties. Quite by accident, she got into the flooring business and stayed there for the better part of twenty-five years. She was a marketing rep for Amoco Fabrics and Fibers and Wools of New Zealand, and a sales rep for Nourison Industries. All of these positions involved extensive travel, so she learned to organize her schedule, manage her time, manage a budget, and work by herself with little supervision.

In 1991, she married for the first and only time. They were happily married for many years, but his adultery ended the marriage in 2007.

For the last three years, she has been happily retired. Brenda has always loved animals, so she recently decided to become a guinea pig mommy. She currently has five of the adorable little rodents. Her goal is to write a series of children’s books chronicling the lives of her piggies.

Since she no longer travels for work, she now has the time to volunteer at church and attend daytime Bible studies. She especially enjoys serving in the nursery on Wednesday mornings.

Her other two passions are classic rock concerts and leisure travel. Although she still has a long bucket list, she tries to take a major trip every year. Some of her most fun adventures have occurred in New Zealand, Egypt, Israel, Dubai, Bora Bora and Italy. Regarding classic rock, she usually attends between five and ten concerts every year.

Last but not least, Brenda is a huge Detroit sports fan and enjoys attending baseball and football games. Go Lions! Go Tigers!

A Near Death Experience Saved My Life

On August 15, 2009, Brenda was involved in a horrific boating accident. The boat she was in collided with another boat, causing her boat to capsize. She was trapped underneath it, and it was estimated that she was under water for six to eight minutes. It took marine unit officers ten minutes to resuscitate her.

For the next three months, Brenda was out of work and extremely depressed. After two hospital stays, one surgery, two rounds of physical therapy and home stays with two different friends, she made a miraculous recovery.

In her story, she outlines what she learned from this experience. Her three themes are: The Power of Prayer, The Power of Supportive Friends, The Power of Gratitude.
