Episode 042 – Shawn Anderson

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #42 with Shawn Anderson – Making The Adventure Bigger Than The Fear.

Shawn 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, organizations, communities and ourselves when we “go the extra mile.” On November 1, 2018, 553 cities made the unique declaration and recognized the superstar volunteer heroes in their communities.

In August of 2019, Shawn has completed a 450-mile walk across France.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • Becoming the “Extra Mile Man”.
  • Starting entrepreneurship at age 10 & becoming rich in baseball cards.
  • Sometimes, you can’t build and hope people will come.
  • How to reach a point where you can pick who you work with & no longer chasing the dollar.
  • Learning about profit margin and revenue at a very young age.
  • “Extra Mile America”
  • Playing the game of attention–Marketing.
  • Having a deep belief in one’s self.
  • There’s no competition for a man who’s willing to do the  work.
  • Life will wear you down unless you keep your passion at the top of your list.
  • The unexpected happens all the time.
  •  If you wait until you’re ready to do anything, you’ll never do anything.
  • The key to growth is taking risks.
  • Making the adventure bigger than the fear.
  • “No Regret Living”
  • This is my time because someday it will no longer be my time.
  • The self awareness that we are imperfect beings.
  • Today is the best day of the week. Today is a do over.
  • Structuring your day give you more freedoms.
  • Control the morning. Control the day.
  • The more flex time we build into our schedules, the healthier our attitudes, the healthier our mindsets, the healthier our lives.
  • Daily accountability.
  • Giving the body and brain a time out.
  • Planting seeds and watering seeds to live richly.

The HERO Challenge

Today on the show, Shawn Anderson challenged Brad and Libby Birky to be guests on The HERO Show. Shawn thinks that Brad and Libby are a fantastic interview because they designed the foundation of SAME (So All May Eat) Café on the back of a cocktail napkin and on a page from the in-flight magazine.

Brad and Libby Birky had devoted hours to soup kitchens and food banks. They want to do their part in the fight against hunger.
