Who is Shawn Anderson?

Shawn is unique as a motivator and author in that he just doesn’t talk the talk…. He lives it. Shawn blew through Delaware last week and a friend of mine had the opportunity to meet him and learn a little more about his mission. I thought I would share.

A “possibilty thinker” and a self-billed “Battery Charger of the Human Spirit,” Shawn has a lifetime mission of empowering 1,000,000 people to lead a more positive and purposeful existence. Author of SOAR to the Top and most recently Amicus 101: A Story About the Pursuit of Purpose and Overcoming Life’s Chaos, Shawn is passionate about empowering others to maximize their goals and fulfill their personal potential.

Shawn, 46, is also hoping that his extra-mile cross country effort can spark an extra-mile trend for others in their mid and older years to exercise.

shawnrun1“Although I am a fitness advocate, I am neither a regular bicyclist nor a race enthusiast. I exercise solely to be healthy. In 1998, I did bike the U.S. ocean-to-ocean as a challenge to myself; however, my novice status as a cyclist is confirmed by the fact that I bought my bike the day before I left! From the completion of that cross-country ride through March of this year (2009), I have ridden a bike for no more than 50 miles.”

“My exercise and fitness foundation has always been as a runner. I jog 3-6 miles 5+ days a week as I have for over 20 years. For this cross-country ride, however, I am getting my “seat” used to the bike much sooner than before!”
