We had the good fortune of connecting with Shawn Antonio and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shawn, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
My work life balance has shifted immensely.
I realized, after my time living in Australia in 2015 to 16, that balance was key. I made immediate changes to prioritize what truly matters to me. PLAY! FUN! And all of the other delicious things life has for us.
I started putting those things in flow with my daily life. Life rocks as a result.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I have a life coaching brand like no other. I’m deeply involved in the daily lives of all of my clients worldwide. I give a shit, a lot of shits. I guide them to the best versions of themselves and get their lives to a place they have never been. It’s awesome to witness.
I got my business to where it’s at by being disciplined, relentless and unstoppable. No matter what people said, I kept growing and pushing forward. I knew that this was my calling and reason for existing.
The lessons I’ve learned along the way is to stay in your lane. Whatever your lane is, it’s yours. Don’t allow for people’s opinions to throw you off track. Simple.
What I want the world to know about me is that I always believed in me. That’s it. Belief in self is one of the most powerful sources in the Universe, alongside love. So, love yourself, believe in yourself and don’t ever stop. My brand represents exactly that. A fearless, say it all kind of coaching brand. It’s time, for us all to wake up. And that what I do on a daily basis, I wake up the world!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would spend quality time with them. I’m a rabbit hole kind of guy so I get deep with my closest friends. Ask any of them. That would be first.
I would then take them to epic landmarks all over LA. Amazing restaurants that rock. We would beach volleyball it up. Go for bike rides, skateboard our asses off. I’m also a huge fan of art. We would hit up tons of museums all over LA. There are some sick exhibits always happening here in LA.
Depending on the pandemic status, I would pick and choose what nightlife events we would attend.
Also, I’m a very in the moment kind of human so we would go with the flow and let life guide us as well.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The people, groups, organizations, books and so on that inspired my career and purpose are various.
People like the Brazilian Author Paolo Coehlo, Mahatma Gandhi, Oprah Winfrey, My Dad Cecilio, my Mom Sislin, just to name a few.
I’m an avid reader so my list is long of books that changed my life. All I can say is, READ. It opens up a world of wonder, education, knowledge, vision and beauty.
My last SHOUT OUT is to my Wife Alicia! She was the one who sat me down and told me to use my superpowers to change the world. She saw me for who I was truly meant to be not the facade I was hiding behind. I am forever grateful to hear for WAKING ME UP.
These are all pics of mine.
