I'm Shai Littlejohn,

a lawyer, auntie, "Shai-mom", wife later-in-life, career & lifestyle blogger and singer-songwriter based in Nashville, Music City. I'd live on motivational podcasts and chocolate cake alone, if I could. You'll often find me in the window seat of an airplane curled up with the latest self help or business books.


I get lost in time with family and friends, love traveling to just about anywhere on the planet, and obsess over analyzing career and life decisions that aren't working to help others discover the path that will. I'm all about staying true to yourself and bringing about the career and life changes you want to see.

This blog is about how I stopped leading a reactionary existence and designed a life of my choosing by blending traditional pursuits with unconventional aspirations. I've sat in board rooms negotiating multimillion dollar transactions, and I've lived out my dream of touring as a performing songwriter, and just about everything in between.

I'll share achievable strategies, inspiring stories and a fresh point of view that will show you how to reignite your career and live out your bucket list. Better work, better life.
