This is Shawn Harper; a former NFL player, entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and author. When listening to his speeches, his audiences don’t just sit passively – they interact; they are deeply moved, motivated to take action, and truly inspired! Students of all ages identify with his story and remember his unique and entertaining delivery style. His presentations are not sermons; they are demonstrations of how a person who was born in impoverished surroundings with four siblings and a single mother grew up to achieve his dreams as an NFL player and beyond.
Shawn’s speeches are a testimate to how young students can write their own destiny by overcoming limitations and developing a winning mindset. He struggled with learning disabilities and speech impairment as a child yet rose to achieve things most had never thought possible. He is a successful life coach, business owner, and national middle and high school motivational speaker. Shawn’s ‘no excuses’ philosophy has motivated millions of students to dream big and push through setbacks to realize their true potential.
Over the last of 15 years, Shawn has reached thousands of students from all socio-economic backgrounds and has traveled to all 50 states to motivate and empower our nation’s youth. Your students will be amazed and inspired by the former NFL player’s presence, dynamic story and powerful message. Students are drawn to and fascinated by Shawn because of his humorous, rousing presentations and feats of strength. Shawn infuses his mantra, “We’re not born winners or losers, we’re born choosers,” in the hearts of young people to expand their minds and impel them to greatness.
We invited Shawn to speak to our sophomore class this school year. Shawn did an outstanding job connecting with our students and inspiring them. Not only did Shawn speak to them respectfully, but his message resonated with them. The students were engaged and entertained but more importantly took away from his talk the message of pursuing your dreams regardless of the obstacles that might be in your way. Shawn is personable, approachable, and down to earth. These qualities allowed him to connect with our students along with his message of pursuing your dreams and goals. I highly recommend Shawn as a motivational speaker. I hope we have the chance to have Shawn speak to our students again in the future. I wish Shawn all the best.
