INTRODUCTION TO EPISODE 39

Life can be simple or complex — depending on how we choose to live our lives. We all lead different lives, and, as such, we use different tools and techniques to make sure we’re accomplishing the things we need to accomplish. That’s where prioritization and preparedness come into play.

Shawn Conrad is a man of many talents - he’s a renowned speaker, artist, and actor who used his past experiences in the entertainment industry to find his voice and develop his skills as a speaker.

In this episode, Shawn speaks with Mike about his exciting journey in life, playing multiple roles professionally while finding quality time to spend with his family. Shawn speaks of the importance of prioritization and preparedness in life and how they were instrumental in helping him grow as a successful and satisfied individual.
