Motivational speakers can genuinely help business owners and employees overcome specific challenges by helping them think differently. Sometimes, it is better to hear certain things from someone who is not working inside the company.

Shawn Harper is an excellent example in this case.

He is a former NFL player, successful CEO and an internationally acclaimed motivational speaker.

Despite all of his accomplishments, he did not have it easy. Let’s find out more about his life story.

Shawn Harper’s Life Challenges

Shawn has five siblings, and they were all raised by their single mother in Columbus, Ohio. They had to live in an impoverished neighborhood and Shawn had to face other challenges, as well.

He had to struggle with four disabilities, two of them being dyslexia and speech impediment.

Teachers were not supportive of Shawn, as they kept telling him he was not “college material.” He suffered a lot from his disabilities, debilitating stutter and lack of support at school, but he truly wanted to fit in, so he joined the football team during high school.

Even though he graduated the last one in his class and did not receive any scholarship, Shawn’s high school coach recommended him to the coach at North Iowa Community College, who was looking for new talents.

As it turns out, this opportunity would change his life forever.

He started playing at North Iowa Community College, but his greatest dream was playing in the National Football League (NFL). Shawn even placed the letters NFL above his headboard to motivate himself even more.

After playing for North Iowa Community College, he was recruited by Indiana University (IU). During all this time, Shawn kept focusing on his studies as well and graduated with honors.

Because of this and thanks to having a successful career at IU, his dream became a reality, and he was drafted into the NFL.

Shawn has been an NFL player for seven years and played for several teams.

Now, he is the CEO of American Services and Protection in Columbus, Ohio and a successful motivational speaker.
