Motivation/Inspiration: 1 Out Of Over 7,000,000,000

Being in a medically-induced coma for nearly a year, and accomplishing what no other person on earth has, takes immeasurable motivation and inspiration.

Goal Setting: Hospital Bed To The Hawaii Ironman World Championship

Going from a hospital bed to the summit of Mt. Everest is nearly impossible, but Sean has figured out what it takes to reach the top of the world. Sean’s unique and personal storytelling style navigates you though his most difficult struggles with relatable techniques you can use while setting your own goals. Walking around the block or finishing the Hawaii Ironman Championship, Sean’s goals were once both of these and teaches you how to do the same.

Changing Your View: How Almost Dying Is A Good Thing

Surviving two cancers as a teen, Sean was forced to focus on what was important in life and not get caught up in distractions. Everyone facing a struggle must come to terms with their situation and take a step into the unknown. Moving past struggles toward your goal often requires a change in attitude and a change in how you see things. Sean will help make your success tangible by using his “Upside Down Mountain” analogy, making you successful even before you begin.

Personal Or Group Consulting

Everyone can use a little support and guidance in setting and achieving goals. Developing a personal and professional relationship directly with Sean, and having him guide you or your group on your specific interests only increases your success. By sharing his tools with you and/or your group, Sean will help you understand the only person who is able to stop you from achieving your goals is the same person who can help you achieve them... you.
