Shawn Anderson is a six-time author, keynote speaker and motivational people builder. His "go the extra mile" philosophy and ability to produce winning results have been praised by political leaders, Olympic Gold Medal and world record holders, and media outlets around the world. An entrepreneur since the age of 10 when he started a business selling worms to fishermen, Shawn has continued by building businesses and organizing events that make a difference in how people think.
He is the founder of Extra Mile America, and the creator of Extra Mile Day in the United States......a day recognizing the capacity we each have to create positive change in our families, our organizations, our communities and ourselves when we "go the extra mile." On November 1, 2015, 551 cities made the unique declaration and recognized the superstar volunteer heroes in their communities.
When it comes to living the life he loves, Shawn walks the talk. He has built a multi-million dollar company, pedaled a bike 4,000 miles across the U.S. (twice), run a 100-mile race, walked across two countries, and has created adventures around the world. Most of all, however, Shawn is passionate about sharing a simple message with others:
"If you want to create a life that you love...never stop going the extra mile."
