After you complete the necessary steps, you will be officially certified in 3-6 months from your start date depending on your pacing. What sets our program apart is that not only will you be certified, but you will also have a thriving business up and running. This is in contrast to traditional certification programs, where certification can be achieved within 2-6 weeks, but the process of establishing and growing a business has to done afterwards (with often little to no support). Plus, you get 6 months access to the Marketing Membership to help you continue to grow your business with our mentorhsip. 

How long does the program take?

Although we can't predict what your income will be, we can tell you that earning a full or part-time income is very possible with consistency, dedication and a positive mindset. Business success does not happen overnight. You'll have to put in the time and the effort and we'll encourage you every step of the way. However, a realistic goal for a Sleep Consultant in their first year of business working part time and following our business advice at SPSE is to earn $3-$5k per month in revenue.  

How much money can I make as a Sleep Consultant? 

Yes! We offer a limited number of partial scholarships based on financial hardship or underrepresented populations within the industry including women who are BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+. If you would like to discuss applying for a partial scholarship, please email Please note we do not offer full scholarships. 

Do you offer any scholarship opportunities?


Hey, I'm Shannon Buhera

I am a former elementary school teacher that took my Sleep Consulting business from side hustle to full time income within one year and now I'm coaching others on how to grow their business with their specific goals, their time, and their revenue in mind. 

I didn’t have the network (friends or local community) that could lead me to regular client referrals so instead I’ve been able to leverage social media. In less than two years on TikTok, I hit 100k followers and started to master video content as a way to connect, build trust, provide value, and generate leads. 

As much as I love Sleep Consulting, Business Coaching is my jam! I love empowering women with the strategy so they can go out and hit their goals. If I’m not working, you’ll find me playing with kiddos or planning our next vacation with my husband.
