Shantel Reitz is a woman business owner, current international beauty queen, a high-level sales and productivity coach. Her mission is to take her experience and shine in her best light to give others the courage to turn their light on and shine. She has a presence and a glow about her that you can hear throughout this interview!Shantel’s Backstory of Trauma and AbuseShe remembers growing up being sexually abused by her grandfather as long back as she can remember until 12. At the age of eight, she and her cousins found out that her paternal grandfather was sexually abusing them and told their parents. Her grandfather made up stories, and their parents did nothing to protect them. Looking back, she remembers her grandmother crying about the abuse, and Shantel didn’t want to make her grandmother sad again.Achieving Accolades to Prove Her WorthShantel went the distance to prove her worth as a child by achieving high grades in school and going overboard with work. “I have to be conscious in checking in with myself to find out what is my intention here and what is my motive? Am I doing this to prove something?” Now, she no longer needs outside validation and does things that make her happy.Reading Self-Help Books as a Deflection for Healing WorkAs a teen, Shantel decided to read self-help books. In doing so, she realized that reading the information was a deflection from actually doing the steps needed to heal herself. “I realized that I was the one who was the people pleaser and I wasn’t setting up boundaries.” Shantel wanted to be loved and respected, and after her grandfather’s death, her father refused to make amends. It’s been seven years, and although she loves her father from a distance, Shantel has decided to place the boundary to her father that until he is ready to go to counseling with her, they won’t have a relationship.Resources MentionedConnect with Shantel on LinkedInJoin Me on Speak Loud PlatformSpeak Loud Podcast on the webSpread the message of Speak Loudly Podcast andshare this episode with a friend!***Disclaimer: All content found on Speak Loud Podcast, including text, images, audio, or other formats were created for informational purposes only.
