Every kid wonders....
YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM [YEP]
Just say "YEP!"
Purpose and Creative Mindset coach SHAWN CHRISTIAN has been empowering a generation of young teens to create their roadmap to unleashing their greatest potential!
Growing up in the working-class atmosphere of the midwest, where everything was earned, Shawn learned at a very young age that embodying personal responsibility, commitment and compassion are essential to the quality and character of one's life.
A NATURAL BORN LEADER. From as early as Shawn can remember he had willing been thrust into leadership positions. From being named captain of his first little league football team, to performing, writing and directing school plays, to being voted class president…all before 12 years-old...these experiences would be the foundation from which Shawn would use his intrinsic leadership skills to push himself and others to give their all and create the best version of themselves.
In High School, Shawn was honored with the CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF MERIT for outstanding leadership, community service and academic excellence, an unexpected award he never imagined he would receive. Leading by example are simply part of his core value system that drive his actions and support his beliefs.
Shawn has always had a relentless pursuit toward seemingly impossible goals, a quality his mother would most likely call a "restless pursuit" because of his boundless energy. Playing in his neighborhood "field of dreams" Shawn imagined he could do anything he set his mind too. A lesson his father ingrained in him at a very young age.
His ambitious pursuits would continue by attempting to get a dual degree in both Architecture and Marketing all while fiercely training to become a walk-on collegiate basketball player. In true Shawn fashion, the day after getting his bachelor's degree in Marketing, Shawn left Michigan with no roadmap or connections to revive his creative talents as an actor in the big cities of Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Over the next 25+ years he’s been achieving his big dreams as a respected and successful actor appearing in over 75 movies and TV series. Working with A-list talent, including both Emmy and Oscars winners, Shawn carefully studied how to cultivate and express the unique potential that lives in all of us. However, Shawn proudly admits that it is the countless failures and rejections that prove to be the most valuable lessons in honoring his true sense of self-worth and self-belief.
In this wonderful 25-year run in film & TV, Shawn hit a 1,2 punch that would stop him dead in his tracks. From that moment on resilience would be his teacher through a difficult period of deep self-reflection. It started with the loss of his father (his rock), then growing changes in the entertainment industry led to the disappointment of no longer being able to support his family. With no work, no direction and no senses of purpose Shawn's sense of self-worth and energetic spirit were privately eroding.
"I had no idea how to change the course of my life."
During his years of deep self-reflection Shawn went back to WHY he was always driven by these highly ambitious heartfelt pursuits. Connecting the dots of his life Shawn began to realize his fervent need to create experiences that ignite and empower others to feel alive with a sense of passion and purpose. This powerful self-discovery motivated him to become a Certified Life Coach with his mentor Jay Shetty.
With renewed enthusiasm Shawn was excited to help build the non-profit organization Arrow-Heart Adventure Camps with his fiance Ari. Their mission to empower young teens with character building skills through outdoor adventure was in pure alignment with his true leadership nature. Creating an impact in the lives of young teens, parents and people around the world ignited the creation of Shawn and Ari's life coaching business Aloha Life. At Aloha Life they steadily built a coaching business, online-courses, personal & group retreats, and Shawn has a growing interest of people excited to have him speak to groups, organizations and teams about how to use one's unique potential to create a life that makes them feel alive with authentic passion and meaningful purpose.
"We are all born with unique talents, vivid imaginations and powerful creativity, but too few young kids understand how to discover and develop their amazing gifts."
We live in a very complex world that is evolving faster than generations of young people can keep up with and thrive in. There is an increasing number of kids whose common everyday insecurities and disappointments are spiraling into deep self-doubt, depression or worse. We all have a cultural, spiritual, economic and personal necessity to invest in fostering the unique potential of every young child.
Shawn Christian is thrilled to be utilizing his life experiences to elevate the unique talents and abilities of a generation of young students, and to see them empowered with the necessary skills to create an authentically happy and healthy life is confirming that Shawn is indeed fulfilling his own life's passion and purpose.
