Building Her Dream is a platform that empowers introverted women entrepreneurs across the world to find their voices. Our mission is to share their inspirational stories as they journey in pursuit of their dream life.

We believe there is something inside all of us that compels us to create, build and share our gifts with the world. This is what we do when we go after our dreams and live from a place of purpose. It’s about making a difference in the lives of others while also creating financial abundance for ourselves.

On this website, you’ll find the tools, inspiration and support to build a sustainable business.

By sharing real stories of real women entrepreneurs who dared to dream big and accomplish their goals, we hope to inspire others to do the same.

These are our stories. Tell your story today.


I’m Shayla Burtin, the Founder of Building Her Dream.

I didn’t become an entrepreneur to make a million dollars. I chose this journey because I wanted more time, freedom, and flexibility in my life. I wanted to do the work that brings me the most joy. And I wanted to help people the way I feel called to help without limitations.

Building Her Dream was born to tell the stories of amazing introverted women who are building thriving businesses.

It’s a place where we can come to learn, grow and be inspired by other women who are paving their own paths and living their dreams.

In addition to managing BHD, I’m a certified Director of Operations, HR Leader, Author, and the Founder of Yes, I Can Help You, an operations management and virtual staffing company.

I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I’m the World’s Best Aunt to 6 children. When I’m not working you can find me watching Netflix, planning vacations, and waiting patiently for Rihanna’s next album.
