About - Kendrick Shope

You started your business because you believe in what you do and want the freedom to do more of what you love (spending time with your kids, traveling, or even retiring early.)

So why, when you know what you do helps people, you show up on social media every single day, and you’ve invested time and money in courses for “online business,” are you still not making money?

The missing puzzle piece is sales.

That’s where I come in.

After leaving a top-performing corporate sales career spanning nearly 15 years, I turned my unique way of selling with empathy into the #1 sales process online.

As the creator of Authentic Selling®, for over a decade, I’ve taught thousands of new business owners and seasoned salespeople alike how to make more money with integrity, how to close sales without being pushy, and create freedom in life and business.

Authentic Selling® University is the place where you, course creator, coach, or service provider, come to learn and get results. And for experienced entrepreneurs who need to reinvigorate a launch or make more sales in this new phase of online business, we bring you Upper-Level Selling.

No matter your stage of business, my mission is simple:

to teach you Authentic Selling®, so your business makes money, and you believe in yourself as much as I believe in you.

The Power
  of Belief

I know the power of belief firsthand because I’ve seen it in my life and in the lives of my students.

When you get crystal clear on your beliefs, you can do more of what you love, make more money, and reach more people.

MY Story

Over 10 years ago, I was in the corporate world. I was a top-performing pharmaceutical sales rep, and I’d graduated top in my class from 2 corporate sales schools.

My path was laid out. I was going to grow as a superstar in the world of corporate sales.

Then, I had my daughter, and my whole world changed.

For two years, I rocked my daughter Halianna to sleep every night. But one evening, it hit me: what I’d been whispering in her ear for 2 years had actually been a mantra:

You can be anything you want to be in this world. All you have to do is believe.

I put Halianna down in her bed and walked across our Chicago apartment. I threw open the doors to our bedroom and declared to my husband: “I’m living a lie.”


Now, Blake was used to be me being a little dramatic, so he didn’t even look up. But I was dead serious.

I’d had a vision of the future with my little girl growing up. One night, she’d hear that mantra, You can be anything you want to be in this world… And she’d ask me, “Mama, did you want to sell drugs for a living?”

I said to Blake, “What am I going to tell her? That this belief stuff applies to you, but not to me? It’d shatter everything we’ve been building her belief on!”

I knew what I had to do. I had to find what I wanted so that I could look her in the eyes and say, You can be anything you want to be in this world. All you have to do is believe. Just look at me.

And she’d see it was true.

So I did.

Shortly after, I quit my top-performing, six-figure sales job. I went on a quest to figure out my mission. It led me through a lot of yeses and nos, ups and downs, and dollar bills. And it led me to create the Authentic Selling® process.

Why am I so passionate about selling?

Selling allows you to get just about anything you want in life.

In business, it’s the exchange of money for a product or service. It should NEVER feel icky, sleazy, slimy, gross.

If that’s how it’s been feeling for you, Authentic Selling® is the solution. Learn how to sell in a way that closes 9 out of 10 clients and makes you feel good.

In my community, we believe that selling is helping. And you know about the power of belief.

Hear it from our students

Got my first high ticket client a couple of weeks ago

Two years ago, a coach told me to stop going to teachers—that it would be impossible to build a business with teachers as clientele. Last March, Kendrick said, “I can’t tell you exactly how long it will take, but I believe in you, and I believe in your business.” Last month I created a new coaching program for teachers who want to write a book or start a side business. Got my first high ticket client a couple of weeks ago, and after this turbulent day, just signed my 2nd high ticket client. One more thing: they have both been teachers. Thank you Kendrick 🙏🏼💕

I loved that Kendrick really heard me and saw who I am.

I have no reservation about recommending Kendrick to anyone who values authenticity and is looking for someone who gives you feedback and tools that are not only valuable but really
tailored for who you are and what you want to do in the world. I loved that Kendrick really heard me and saw who I am. I believe that’s the only way for me to create a business I will love in the long run. If you have ever wondered about what it looks like if someone over-delivers again and again, work with Kendrick.
