As of the airing of this episode, I am over in Mallorca, Spain for the second round of The Low Carb Universe Conference. And just before that, the weekend prior, I was at the Nutritional Therapy Association Conference. Be on the lookout for my update on these two conferences, and everything in between, in a future episode that I’ll have for you in the next few weeks!


One other thing that I’m pumped up to share with you is that I’m finally moving to my very own condo! If you’re someone who wants to have a behind-the-scenes look at that whole process and my new place, follow me on Instagram or on Facebook and catch all my Stories about that!


The next enrollment period for The Good Gut Project will start on March 14, and the program will begin on April 30. So if you want to work on your gut, mark your calendars and make sure to head over to my website and enroll!


Finally, I have a new podcast partner that you guys are going to love! If you haven’t already tried Osso Good Bone Broth, they deliver the best quality bone broth on the planet!

“There are so many women that think they’re healthy because they’ve been ‘eating healthy’ for so long and in fact, they’ve done damage to their blood sugar at that point.”


“If you’re just having a moderate level of protein three times a day at your meals, you’re not going to go over any sort of amount to the point that you’re kicked out of ketosis.”

Hey there, I'm Shawn!

I’m obsessed with nitro cold brew, 90% dark chocolate, and helping coaches and practitioners build a business they love. With nothing but a passion for helping others and the desire to never have a boss again, I quit the corporate world and built my own million dollar coaching business over the past decade. Now, I help others do the same.
