Shawn Taylor is a Motivational Speaker, Businessman, and Author. Shawn was born in Boston, Mass and raised in Detroit Michigan. It's hard to believe that over 10 years ago I left my job at General Motor as an Engineer to pursue my vision and dream of becoming an Entrepreneur and Motivational Speaker. All I had was a hope and a dream with no guarantees. When I resigned my wife was 9 months pregnant with our first daughter. We had a car note, mortgage payment and all of life's other bills. When you believe emphatically in yourself and you know what you are capable of doing, and you know that your life has a bigger purpose, for the greater good of the world. It may be the scariest thing you have ever done in your life. The thought of success has to trump the fear of failure. When you feel it, you just know it, no matter who else believes it is possible. And then you find yourself on a high ledge looking down at the world and you know it's either now or never. So you stand alone and spread your wings and you jump to your greatness and spread your wings like an eagle. And that is exactly what Shawn did! The time never seems right to do something great but you will never know how great it was until you do what some may have thought was the impossible.
