Shawn's been working with freelancers, entrepreneurs, and business owners for more than 20 years. He's consulted companies large and small on communication, social media, and marketing strategies.

When he's not hanging out with solopreneurs, Shawn loves to write, run and travel. He's passionate about teaching and he's convinced that a good story is the best way to do it - especially if it involves El Caminos, potato fields, and really loud music.
