Before becoming an independent business owner, Shawn worked in corporate America for Tony Robins. He started at the bottom and was quickly promoted to developing three divisions of the company and increasing on-the-road sales from $68,000 to over $200,000. Despite enjoying his work and excelling in his career, he became dissatisfied with building a successful company for someone else.
With the desire for freedom and control of his time, income, and destiny, Shawn attended First Steps to Success with Dani Johnson, which laid a foundation for him to achieve his dreams. In his first three years with Coastal Travel, he never missed an event, and still regularly plugs into training. While there have been tough times in his business, he never quit, never gave up, and the fruit of his perseverance resulted in $39,000 in just 12 days! One day, he made two platinum sales in a single day, generating profits of $19,410! We call this a “Truck Day” because that is enough cash to buy a truck!
Without BIG goals, you will never really accomplish anything; and Shawn has a number of goals, both in business as well as in his personal life. His current #1 business goal is a sale a day! A quarter of a million dollars in 2015, a summer dream vacation at Disney World using his Coastal Package, selecting the right college for his son, increased investments in real estate and silver, giving even more to Kings Ransom projects and to his church, and doing some special things for his wife, (Not telling what! Don’t want to spoil it. She may read this.) … these represent just a few of the goals totally within reach for this month’s DFI’s Director of the Month, Shawn Scheppele. With a 10 year track record, Shawn’s consistent work ethic has created a strong foundation for achieving not only these goals but more besides. “The keys to reaching these goals, ie. what’s it going to take to get these done, is, among other things, faith, determination, focus, strategy and that 4 letter word (work)! His vision is to continue to provide people with “a place to succeed,” says Shawn.
Beyond the personal and business goals, Shawn’s ultimate goal is to continue to grow in Christ. He said, “The Lord is why this article is being written, not me. On my knees is how I start and finish each day. PERIOD!” Unlike many successful businessmen, Shawn believes God gave him an assignment to help other people personally, professionally and financially. Striving to create a safe place for success, he offers keys to an opportunity in which he comes alongside his team members, coaching them through a simple process. He follows and teaches a duplicatable presentation system: “It’s all about the presentations – that’s what makes money. The system is to support and encourage and provides strategy. Presentations must be skilled, on purpose, laser focused, and often repeated.” His deepest desire is to “set the captives free” through encouragement and inspiration.
“I have a business today, because of what I’ve learned from Dani Johnson. Plain and simple. When people are trained well, they do well. And the company makes sure everyone gets trained by giving them access to Dani Johnson– that’s why so many people have success. I’m grateful the company cares about their people enough for them to get the training they need to be successful. It works!” ~ Shawn Scheppele
