Hi Friends. I’m Carlyn.

I’m honored & excited

our paths are crossing…

right on time. 



Ready to Give Yourself Permission… To Give Yourself Permission?
It’s Time to CO CREATE Your Best Life! 


Hello Friend!

I’m Carlyn Shaw, an Intuitive Confidence and Connection Coach, Inspirational Storyteller and YOUR Stranger To Friend.


Are you ready to:

Create More Real CONNECTION?


Everyone has a story. From our health to relationships to our careers, everyone experiences setbacks. Everyone suffers at some point. The point isn’t to avoid or feel shame for your story but allow your story to be a springboard for personal growth, connection and opportunities.

What meaning do you give your story? THAT’s what defines how your story… defines you

The moment you claim your story to serve you vs. set you back… IS the moment YOUR story, your life, starts to shift. 

How Do I know?







You’re invited to join me on a journey of personal growth, connection and FUN. 
It’s time to let go of what no longer serves you, build self confidence, learn to trust and follow your intuition and most of all, turn all the fear you feel… into your friend.  

Ready to see your circumstances from a new perspective? 
Life doesn’t t happen TO you, it happens FOR you.

Ready to step into your best self?
By taking control of what you can control, you’ll release the victim and become your own victor. This is your invitation to say yes to the change you’ve craved for so long. 

Ready to silence your inner critic and honor your inner voice?
Friend… you only have one life! It’s time…to give yourself permission to BE TRUE TO YOU!.

My Promise:

  • Listen without judgment
  • Offer a launch pad for change
  • Provide supportive feedback
  • Guide you from where you are now to where to want to be

As a Story Collector and Container, YOU and everything you share, are safe, with me. 

What’s the worst that can happen….or rather, what’s the best that happen?

It’s time to trust yourself and your journey.

Working one-on-one with Carlyn over the past several months has helped me become aware of the new possibilities that open up with genuine connection. She has helped me understand the powerful changes that can happen in life by stepping in to my fears and getting out of my comfort zone.

WOW!!! Carlyn Shaw and I got to talk after I interviewed her on a video I'm sharing for Saturday's workshop, and when we were catching up, I opened up to her about something I feel overwhelm by, and fear around....then, super naturally, easily, I found myself totally JAZZED!!! I didnt even realize it was happening but she opened up soooo many new doors for me in my mind and heart about the topic and completly shifted me!! I now have new ideas, possibilities, and excitement about something I was totally stumped on!! I am so grateful for Carlyn and highly recommend for anyone who has things you fear, or are tunnel vision about, hire Carlyn to JUST GET OVER IT, GET EXCITED, SEE IT IN NEW WAYS and JUST DO IT already!! lol seriously Carlyn, that was awesome. I'm so thankful for you and all the wisdom, gifts and stories you have to offer. Go bigger, Car, the whole world needs you to bust up fear and have more fun!!

I was in the middle of a really difficult time in my life when I contacted Carlyn Shaw about signing up for a 6 week support program she was offering. I had no idea how her program worked or how she would help me, but I was struggling with illness, my business, my emotions, and I didn’t feel like I had a friend to confide in. Carlyn provided an ear and a lifetime of experience in positivity that became a safe and supportive space for me to unload, cry, dream and heal. On our first phone call she suggested a book that is now a large part of my daily habits and transformation. I’m very grateful I had her to lean on when my life was turn up side down, and I plan to continue using her as an important tool in my overall wellness kit. Thank you Carlyn!

Carlyn's authenticity demands authenticity in return. Thank you. Thank you for listening. Thank you for helping me feel safe to share. Thank you for your great advice in helping me focus on how I can make things a little better. She said, "First we have to identify what our internal story is before we can shift it." I've known all along that my story, the meaning that I give to it and the lessons I learn from it can either serve me and others, or destroy me. It is a choice. Thank you for being a living reminder of that.

Carlyn helped me to harness a new way of thinking, a different perspective and outlook that was easily achieved with just the small shift of word usage that I didn't even realize had become my inner dialogue. She offered a reliability and understanding that was always judgment free and nurturing, without pushing me, and led me to finding my best self. I really wish more people would realize working with Carlyn is investing in themselves.

Going through a lot of change over the past several months, I decided to reach out to Carlyn for support, guidance and advice. We covered a lot of topics! She delivered knowledge and wisdom in concise chunks that were easy to absorb. She was vibrant, whimsical and very imaginative. Not only was the connection both fun and stimulating, but the direct feedback for improving upon myself was invaluable. She empowered, coached and provided me with the confidence that I needed. She truly inspired me to be a better person and to think beyond the ordinary everyday conventional way of thinking. Thank you Carlyn, for sharing and linking me in with Strangers To Friends!
