This quote sums up her life to live boldly:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people wont feel insecure around you. We are all meant to sine, as children do. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. Its nots not just in some of is; its in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”-Marianne Williamson
In her spare time she also enjoys the beach, reading books and retail therapy. Oh and let’s not forget the occasional frappucino from Starbucks and long walks with her family.
Born in Seoul, South Korea, Samantha Greeban(center with WLM National Boss Moms Linley Lauren) is the daughter of hard working immigrant blue collar parents. After graduating from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) in Broadcast Journalism, Samantha took a summer job at Gene Juarez Salons and Spas. That summer job turned into a successful 18 year career in the salon and spa management and operations. Being a General Manager and Director of Operations, Samantha found her true passion of coaching, developing and leading her team. She has been awarded and recognized for lowering turnover, exceeding financial plans while decreasing operational costs.
Working a retail schedule with a traveling husband made it challenging for the Greebans to live a life of balance and quality. So she became a stay-at-home mom but that didn’t last too long. She fulfilled her entrepreneur drive by becoming a Rodan Fields Consultant. This also fulfilled her passion for the beauty industry where she was practically raised.
As a WLM Chapter Momager, she is now able to assist working women who strive for a life of balance and quality. Samantha has a deep desire to help and grow others. She feels there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a happy family with a thriving mom behind it.
Sam lives by the mantra "Be somebody that makes everybody feel like somebody."
After many years in fine jewelry sales, Sam left her full-time job to help her husband with his business. Sam and her husband own Morse Construction and Restoration Services, a construction firm that specializes in insurance reconstruction and restoration.
Sam has two children Sarah (11) and Jackson (5) that keep her very busy. When not working like a mother, you can find her on the soccer field, by the wrestling mat, or catching a football game. She is also an active volunteer and substitute teacher for her local school district.
ShawnnaLea Zemanek is a Jill-of-many-trades. As the owner and event architect at Prestige Events as well as a Rodan Fields consultant, she gives her three children much to look up to. She firmly believes she is a better mom to Amelia (age 7) and twins Zack and Alex (age 3) because she works.
“I love showing my kids that you can do whatever you want. Opportunities are around every corner.”
She cannot wait to help other working moms grow and connect with others who are #workinglikemothers in Northern Vermont.
