166. Heartcore Business Works from the Inside Out
Shanda Sumpter, founder of Heartcore Business, has created countless opportunities for business owners, enlightening them about ways of doing business that create more profits and free time. Hers is one of the fastest growing coaching companies, reaching seven figure revenue in only five years in business.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
I didn’t have a direct calling, I got a nudge to follow my calling. I just made a decision to connect with someone who could partner with me to move forward. He agreed. A year later I left my job and put my efforts into growing Heartcore Business, which is now a thriving company.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
In my early 20s, working in Las Vegas, I realized I was striving to make more money and get more autonomy in my job, but I still wasn’t happy. A good friend said, “Shanda, you really should do some personal development!” I took her advice and changes started to happen.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
I thought something outside of me was going to make me happy—making more money, or having more freedom. Those things are great, but they’re not what makes you happy. It’s really important to look within and figure out what’s going on inside you.

The Internet is the quickest way to make the world small, which I love. Connection is currency. Building a business and putting your calling out into the world is super easy now because of Facebook, the Internet. You don’t have to be tech savvy to be able to connect. We’re connecting right now via Skype over the Internet.
