Without Losing
Your Cool

The Podcast

With Shantelle Bisson

Without Losing Your Cool is a lifestyle interview series that brings the thoughts, feelings, emotions and common struggles out of your head and heart and out into the open.

Each week you can sit with us, laugh with us, cry with us, and be challenged to get out of your own way to go out there and live your best life.

Here, we talk about real life. Shantelle doesn't shy away from the tough conversations, while also inspiring you to re-examine yourself on a soulful level through conversations with her closest friends, and the industry's most sought-after guests.

The common goal? To hear stories from fellow humans who have overcome life's biggest (and most relatable) obstacles, to achieve their dreams of having a more fulfilling life. Through our conversations, you will gain wisdom and trust; and when each episode wraps you will be left with the belief that you too can, and will get the most out of this one beautiful life.

Shantelle doesn't just talk the talk of overcoming trauma to triumph in life, she walks it. And she has what it takes to help you walk confidently through your own life. She reminds you every week that you are not alone. There are so many of us out here who feel the same feelings, and share the same thoughts, and yet feel so alone. But when you hang out with us you're never alone, and you will bear witness to your own heart, mind and soul grow!
