EP014: It Doesn’t Matter Where You’ve Been, it Only Matters Where You are Going with Shaun T
People who mind don’t matter and people who matter don’t mind.
In this refreshingly open and honest conversation with Shaun T, we explore the beauty of believing in ourselves. Shaun experienced mental and physical abuse from an authority figure when he was young. He knew this type of environment is toxic, so he decided to head to LA to become a dancer. He now encourages people to be the best they can be by enhancing their lives with workout programs designed to uplift the body and the soul. He makes his decisions based on love and leads by example. “We only have one life to live,” he says and he intends to make the most of it.
