This is a really fun episode and it is filled with practical things you can try TODAY. I was introduced to Shawn Johal through our mutual friend and we hit it off. In this show we cover lots of topics from his own mental health routine, learning how to express his emotions, shutting down a business, finding happiness in the present moment and so much more. I know you'll love it.

Shawn is the author of The Happy Leader, a leadership fable about transformation in business and in life. He provides a “Happiness Roadmap” for his readers and clients, teaching them how to achieve both happiness and success. Shawn is the founder of Elevation, a business growth coaching & consulting firm, working with entrepreneurs & their teams to help accelerate their growth – while helping them find personal balance and happiness.
