Developing a growth mindset can change your life! Learn about what it is and why it is so important with the author of Y is for Yet and Mindset Power!

Shannon Anderson

30 Minute Program



In some small way, we all have the power to get better every day! What are your goals and dreams? Do you want to learn a new skill? Do want to learn how to play an instrument? Do you have a secret goal in your heart? What is holding you back?

Author and teacher, Shannon Anderson, will share how developing a growth mindset has helped her in her own life and can help you in yours!
We are all capable of great things! We just have to believe in ourselves, discover ways to keep a positive attitude, be a creative problem-solver, and use our set-backs as "set-ups" for success.

Shannon will share what she has learned in her personal life and through her research as she continues to be a cheerleader for kids to follow their passions. Her books, Mindset Power and Y is for Yet carry the messages she will be sharing in her special talk with your child or group.
