Men On Purpose Podcast

Apr 23, 2018

Everyone who is playing the game of life at a high level has support and guidance, someone in their corner who helps them make the necessary shifts to progress to the next level. After all, we can’t outrun our own blind spots, and a coach or mentor can offer a clear picture of what we are missing, facilitate the decision-making process, and even inspire us to appreciate and celebrate our successes—big and small.

Shannon Graham is a motivational speaker, self-help author and success mentor with 15 years of experience helping individuals and businesses reach high-impact goals. Recognized as a leader in the coaching industry, Shannon has developed a number of transformative programs designed to tackle the hurdles of life and business. His most recent innovations include The Ultimate Lifestyle Intensive, a wildly popular weekend mentorship program that helps developing coaches fast-track their personal and professional success, and Legacy, his one-on-one coaching program and mastermind for visionary entrepreneurs.

Today, Shannon joins Emerald to discuss his intuition-based decision-making process and offer his insight on decisiveness as an indicator of self-trust. He walks us through the value of coaching, explaining the two chief styles and when each proves most useful. Shannon shares his framework for making connections through Facebook, speaking to the importance of authenticity and presenting the highest, truest version of your message—even if it’s polarizing. Listen in for Shannon’s take on celebration as appreciation and his advice around striving for what feels impossible.
