What Others Say About Shawn


“Before Shawn I thought I could do it all. I realized how unproductive I was and allowed interruptions. I have since recognized the importance of closing my door and hiring staff that are way better than me. We have exploded because of Shawn.”

- Jillian Burns
Co-Owner of Burns Landscaping & Snow Management

“Before working with Shawn I didn’t have anyone to keep me focused and accountable on the growth of the business. I am much more focused now on working on the business, and not caught up in the day to day. He is genuine, diligent and has a great strategic mindset, working with Shawn has been game changing.”

– Kevin Cassidy
Founder & President of Cassidy Paving Haverhill, MA

“I had the privilege of hiring Shawn to coach my team here at LinkedIn and it was very successful. He received the highest NPS score of the year. Shawn offers a unique perspective and brings content to the table in a way that is both engaging and easy to replicate. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with Shawn outside of my current role and will continue to do so into the future”

– Perry Monaco
Customer Success Leader at Linkedin


“For several years the highlight of our annual conference has been Shawn Shepheard. The audience is laughing one moment, dabbing at a tear the next and all the while being challenged and inspired. He delights all ages and backgrounds and his message is universal. At a recent conference, an octogenarian said, “Shawn teaches me something new about life each time and I am so energized now!!!” And THAT is why we have him back each year.

– Casey Truffo
Be A Wealthy Therapist Orange County, California

“As the host of my signature event, Book Breakthrough New York City, Shawn was nothing short of amazing! His style is engaging, entertaining and inspiring – all of which made both our in-room attendees and simulcast audience feel special and right at home. If remarkable is the word you want people to use in describing your event, look no further than Shawn Shepheard.”

– Elizabeth Marshal
Co-founder of Book Breakthrough NYC

Shawn and I have worked on and on for more than a decade. And through that decade, I opened two restaurants in New York City, given two stars by The NY Times, featured in an international documentary, wrote a critically acclaimed best-selling cookbook, left a relationship that was not working, and now I’m well on my way to becoming POTUS! Well, that last part isn’t in my sights but knowing Shawn, if it were, he’d help me get there.

- Nicole Ponseca
Founder – Maharlika Filipino Moderno NYC As seen on The Chew, New York Times, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York

I work with family owned business leaders that have a long track record of success.
I help them continue to grow their business and profits, without working 24/7.
The truth is your hard work ethic and willingness to do whatever it takes, starts working against you when trying to get to the next level.
In other other words “What got you here, won’t get you there.”
I support you in building the business and life you love.
Your vision, on your terms.
No BS.
No hiding behind a pre-determined methodology.

I don’t see myself as an outside consultant, but an essential part of your winning team.
Proud to wear your team jersey.
That is why I work by invite and referral only, and choose to work with a small
group of courageous leaders.
