A Bit About Me (that you might not know)…
The purpose of my life is to use the gifts that God has given me to help bring more joy, happiness, awareness, fulfillment, and balance to the lives of others. Service to creation is part of my worship to the Creator.
With that said, I began to discover the power of the mind at a young age. I used self-hypnosis (I didn’t know it at the time) to make major changes in myself and my life. For example, as a
The only thing that I worked on and failed at, was the ability to stay mad or hold a grudge. As a
I became a motivational speaker at the age of 14 and traveled the U.S. with the HOSA-Future Health Professionals organization, of which I am an alumni member. I loved to connect with the hearts and minds of audiences, and won top honors. From there I continued to develop myself personally and
I said all of that to say that I know the power of the
I know for sure that I’m not the only person with a powerful mind. We ALL possess the same immense power within. My goal is to help each person I work with connect to their own power and engineer their best selves (physically, mentally, and spiritually). I strongly believe that the world is made better every time each of us focuses on making ourselves the best we can be. Self-cultivated individuals build stronger families, which in turn create stronger communities, which create a stronger humanity. The cultivation of one’s self is the root of everything.
It would be my honor to help you become an even better you.

What People Are Saying
"Shazel is the real deal.
When I first heard her speak, I became speechless. Her voice was powerful and passionate. Her speech was intelligent and influential. Shazel is a moving storyteller. Both the audience and I were captivated, and hung on the rise and fall of her every word.
I was humbled and impressed at how she used my stories and powerful symbolism to fill the audience with hope, joy, and a sense of responsibility to “keep getting on the bus”, as I had done.
I was incredibly touched, and wanted to shout, ‘Pass the collection plate, because we have surely heard a good word here today!’ Shazel has a heart of gold, and a God given gift with words."

“Some coaches are Master Teachers
because they are expert at their craft. Some coaches inspire us to soar far beyond our self-imposed limitations because they see our innate potential for greatness, even when we cannot. Still, other coaches win our enduring trust as a Mentor because they listen even more than they instruct. And then, there is Shazel Muhammad – Master Teacher, Inspirer and trusted Mentor – Personified.”

“Shazel is an incredible Professor.
With her teaching these courses, it has honestly made [company] feel more like a college campus than a job. It makes coming here each day feel as though I am focusing on my growth and development alongside that of the company, rather than me just working for it. It taught me skills I didn’t even realize I was lacking, and created a common language through which all [company] associates can communicate. Shazel's passion… and the compelling subject matter, are a winning team. I cannot thank you guys enough!!”

The Influencer 2-day training has power to change from inside out.
Time I spent going over the training was completely worth it, Shazel moderating the course with good sense of humor and the highly organized training filled with practical use cases not only helped grasp the subject matter, also was educational. Motivation and ability from 3 different dimensions of personal, social and structural aspects changed my perceptions for good. It not only helped me better myself professionally, it also helped me personally.
