How it all began?


"What do you want to be when you grow up?" The question that started the path to The E Squared. 

Hi, I'm Shannon Tarrant.  Creator of The E Squared and The Shannon Experience.  

I have sent the last 12 years working in and running successful small to medium sized businesses.  But then it happened! That moment when I decided that there had to be something more out there and so began my "what's next?" journey.  

I thought about when was I the happiest in my career.  I thrive on the challenge to take a business that is struggling and dive in to attack the problem.  I have been blessed in my experiences to master so many different areas of running a business: sales, marketing, finance, operations, customer experience, staff management and so much more.

Many of my greatest moments came from a coffee meet-up or quick call with someone I know looking for advice.  I have the knack of looking at a situation from a bird's eye view and creating solutions to fix it.  I believe in being candid and truthful, even when they didn't want to hear it.  The best part was always the follow-up telling me that they followed my advice AND IT HELPED! 

It was like a light bulb went off! I realized that this was my gift and my passion, to use my experience and talents to help those who need a little inspiration to ELEVATE their business to the next level. To empower and encourage them to learn the tools for small business success!  

The E Squared is all about small businesses having the opportunity to learn how to ELEVATE their business.  I believe that with the right information, training and tools, every small business can increase their revenue exponentially! 

If you like learning from experts, networking with like-minded people, brainstorming with your peers, actionable education and workshop environments, you've come to the right place! 

Welcome to The E Squared!
