I was able to listen to the first episode of stories and starters this morning on the way to work. I can already tell this is going to be a great podcast. You can tell Shawn is passionate about helping people start whatever they have in their heads and in their hearts. Can't wait to hear some of the upcoming stories.
You have to start somewhere...
I had the chance to listen to most of Shawn’s podcasts and I found them to be light, and entertaining. You can tell that Shawn is doing his homework and is prepared for every podcast. He believes in what he is doing and spreading his positivity one podcast at a time! Can’t wait to hear more from Shawn.
Loved both episodes. Listend to the first and was inspired to re-start my side hustle to share and pursue my passion to share with people. Looking forward to future episodes!
