Your Boss (j/k)
👋 Hey there! I'm Shawn and I am so excited to work with you!
I’m a small business owner since 2011, focusing on productivity systems and living in Kansas City with my wife and our three boys.
♥️ Married for 18 years with 3 boys. Send pizza! 🍕
For more than 20 years, I have been learning and teaching about focus, margin, and business.
I’ve spoken about these topics at conferences and workshops; I've taught them to private groups and one-on-one clients; and my online courses have helped more than 17,000 people.
I absolutely love my work and my schedule. I have managed to build a dream job inside my dream company working with my dream team. But work isn't everything to me. I also love the life that my business provides for me and those around me.
But it didn't always used to be this way...
My Journey From Overwhelmed to Focused (with a growing, thriving business)
You guys! I used to work 70 hours per week. And even then, with all those hours, I still felt behind with my never-ending issues at work! I kept thinking I would eventually get ahead of the craziness and start making progress on meaningful work.
Eventually I quit that job to begin working for myself. But guess what? I brought those bad work habits to my own company, and I still found that I was always chasing my to-do list. I never felt satisfied at the end of my work day; there was always more to be done. Work was always on my mind.
When my first son was born, I realized that I needed do to better. I didn’t want my work life to dominate my time and energy. But, at the same time, I still had a strong desire to do meaningful work.
These seemingly-opposing forces shouldn’t have to fight one another. I knew it was okay to have a thriving work life while also having an awesome personal life.
I wanted to be the BOSS of my company... working on higher-level problems, not just stuck working inside my own company.
I wanted a company that could GROW even without my day-to-day input.
I wanted to take more than a week or two of vacation per year (without checking in when I was supposed to be "out of the office".)
I wanted a team that could think for themselves, drive growth, and free me up to focus on the things only I could do.
Yours truly, leading one of our in-person mastermind retreats.
Get My Personal & Business Systems (and so much more)
I have spent years figuring out solutions related to focus and margin and business growth.
The systems and tools that I'll show you inside Focus Like a Boss are the same ones I have developed, taught, and implemented in order to:
✓ Eliminate nearly all the busywork, urgency, and procrastination from my week.
✓ Help other business owners and teams get more breathing room in their schedule (even when it felt impossible to them).
✓ Make more money thanks to a few simple shifts in focus and operations.
✓ Allow everyone in my company to take off two months (paid) every year.
✓ Consistently plan out my year, my month, my week, and my day to do the things that I want to do.
✓ Delegate to my team and keep our projects moving forward.
The material inside Focus Like a Boss has changed my life and the lives of my clients...
