Shaun Zimmer: Life Happens for Us [King Hero Interview]

shaun zimmer thumbnail

 Live October 6 at 1:30 PM with Shaun Zimmer, a true King Hero in my own community. I've watched and admired him as he took risks, served his people and himself grew with leaps and bounds. He's coming on to talk about his revelations, especially of late, and the journey of being an unstoppable freedom Warrior and advocate for the masculine spirit needed now.

"Devoted Father. Life Coach. Health Enthusiast. Public Speaker. Entrepreneur. Author. Rescuer of Masculinity. Protector & Provider."

I grew up in a small country town 30 minutes outside Ottawa, the capital of Canada. My book will take you through all the wild stories and lessons within that led me to where I am today; in summary, I’ll say that I faced many hard choices, made many bad ones, finally made a few good ones, I fell down more than most, tossed everything away more times than I care to admit, chased all the wrong things, and somehow still made it to where I am today.

After spending some time behind bars as a young adult, I made the choice to change my life around; now if I only had the knowledge I do now, I could have successfully made that change within a year instead of 10.

We all have our own path to take, life happens for us, not to us. I wouldn’t be here where I am today, changing lives the way I do had I not learned the hard way. This shows in the way I lead, resilience is forged here. The obstacle is the way as I walk with people into the fires of self-discovery and self-mastery; our mindset and response is what matters most.

At the age of 18 I set out to build my first company, a landscape construction company. I had $500 to my name, a bicycle, a printer, and a girlfriend willing to help. I purchased a trailer for $200, put a hitch on the girlfriends car for $150, and I spent the remaining amount on paint and paper.

Nearly everybody at some point told me I was crazy and should do something else. Don’t ever forget, it doesn’t matter who says you can’t, as long as you aren’t one of them. There I went from handing out those first thousand flyers on my bicycle to now over a decade later winning multiple awards for being the best landscape contractor in the entire province; employing multiple families, and enjoying what comes with believing in yourself and persevering.
