Shannon BinghamPeople's Choice Award
1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
I decided to take my husband to Chicago where his friends and brothers were going to surprise him and meet up there with us. We stayed in a cool old hotel and as we were checking in the hotel staff member said, "Oh wow, there are a lot of Binghams staying here this weekend” effectively somewhat ruining the surprise. We all got a good chuckle out of it that night and even to this day.
2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
My coffee maker and toaster oven. Coffee maker saves me a lot of money from a morning coffee run and the toaster oven because everyone loves and uses it, even my 6 year old. I would also say my husband if I had a 3rd who makes breakfast every morning for all of us.
3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
That I'm competitive and like to be center of attention. I'm one that'll always cheer for others who win, showcased during my first 5k with my sister and dad. I told her to run ahead to beat me (we'd run next to each other the whole race). I'll gladly stand in the spotlight to bring light to my business and awareness to organizations I care about, but the spotlight isn't something I crave.
4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
As the oldest child and a business owner, naturally I am given or take the lead. When not in leadership I'm quickly promoted with whatever I'm involved. What my recent focus has been is taking the lead in showing those in my sphere of influence how to set healthy boundaries and grow personally mentally and spiritually! Modeling what a driven leader with priorities in order looks like to the best of my abilities.
5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
I really had to think about this because I have done a lot of things in my life to conquer fears. Maybe base jumping. The feeling of flying would be incredible. But I still think I may try it regardless of my fear! I will be skydiving as promised with my oldest son when he turns 18. I have scuba dived, storm chased and even flown in a helicopter over an active volcano! Not much I won’t try!
