What They Said
My interview with Shun Henry on Shun Henry’s Becoming, has been the most engaging public conversation I have had about the band Black History to date. It was really like talking to and old friend. Shun, please keep shining the light on Black business owners and may that same light shine upon you too.

Was a guest on Shun Henry’s Becoming Podcast and what an amazing experience! It was so refreshing to have such a laid back conversation with a fellow entrepreneur. The podcast is all about business owners sharing knowledge from their entrepreneurial journey so the vibe is “business casual.” On top of that, the way Shun has structured her podcast with a pre-screened questionnaire allowed for the energy of the conversation to flow effortlessly. Overall again great experience. Thanks so much Shun!

When I tell you my weekend was extremely blessed. I met this beautiful lady, Shun Henry, author of the book When The Bank Says No! Please if you haven’t already order your copy! I have goals for myself and I understand that I cannot reach them unless I further educate myself by purchasing literature from those who have ALREADY DONE IT.
I have really enjoyed Shun’s podcast, Shun Henry’s Becoming. They are really good. Looking forward to receiving her book. Real good and awesome stuff she has going on.
I started reading this book the day that I received it. I’m halfway done! Fast and easy to read.
I really enjoyed this book, reading Shun’s journey to achieving something she wanted when the odds was stacked against her shows all you have to do is believe in yourself and step out on faith. I will definitely apply tips from the book to my own journey.
Shun you are the best! Thank you so much for your advice. I’m currently in the process of buying a house because of your book! I’m so motivated. It’s a full two bedroom, basement with bathroom. I learned that from your podcast.
I’m biased in my opinion of Shun Henry’s Becoming podcast. Overall Shun did an awesome job hosting and keeping the conversation flowing.

Shun’s book made me realize I’m overthinking some things. It has inspired me to keep going. It was some good info that made me say huuum. It’s really amazing what you can do when you think the bank won’t help. We have so many other resources.
I find this book to be very interesting and informative. It also answered a lot of questions I had it the back of my head. My 75 year old mother also said she found it very informative and a great read.
Shun Henry is laying a blueprint that is honest and comes with real information!
Her fortitude and desire to create the life she wants is equally matched by her ability to create that vision. She’s both cerebral and smart and now with her transition beginning to truly trust the thoughts, she’s been harboring.
Our stay was absolutely amazing and professional. SWINC AirBnB Hosting is very detailed when providing for the needs of others.
This was a great read! It was a well blended mixture between entertainment and information.
I had the pleasure of reading this book. The tenacity, the determination and, the will of this author are evident in this book. This is a must-read for individuals entertaining the idea generating an income through AirBNB, or other unconventional business ideas.

Shun’s story is absolutely amazing! I love her transparency and personality both in person and in this book as well. This book is going to be so helpful for people not only looking to get into the AirBnB business, but for any entrepreneur looking to start a business. The advice she gives, the attention to detail, and her drive are invaluable. She has pushed through some tough times and still been able to make a great life for herself and her son. As we’ve read in her book, she’s been destined for greatness her whole life and now she is ensuring that others can do just what she’s done and be equally as successful if they put in the work. Thank you for the honor of reading your story. I truly enjoyed it!
I got my book today and couldn’t put it down!! Your book is the first book I’ve ever read through its entirety in one day. I loved it!! Thank you for sharing your experience and literally being an open book with your knowledge and breakthroughs. I hope to add this to my business portfolio here in Mississippi thanks to you.
