“Create with passion. Serve with all your might. Be prosperous.”
Jeffrey Shaw is a transformational leader. How ironic is it that the guy who spent 30 years bringing life INTO focus as one of the country’s most successful portrait photographers is now freeing creative entrepreneurs around the world to leverage their lack of focus to diversify their businesses and live fulfilling lives.
He is a passionate realist.
Frequently described as an “inspirational speaker that is current and relevant” his real-life anecdotes are relatable and impactful. Jeff shows people how to bridge the gap between innate passions and real profits.
A speaker that is equal parts creative thinker and successful business owner, Jeff has the distinct advantage of providing inspiration from the trenches. Whether he is delivering a keynote, workshop, or one-to-one coaching session his approach is grounded in real life experience, extensive professional training and humor.
Jeff began his career as a highly-sought after portrait photographer for an exclusive clientele. His portraits have appeared on The Oprah Show, in “O” magazine, People Magazine, CBS news, and on the cover of New York Family Magazine. Well into his photography career he became a trained business coach from The Coaches Training Institute in an effort to help other creative thinkers get connected to their purpose and create prosperity. His insights are thought provoking; frequently turning conventional wisdom “upside down” to offer entrepreneurs a way to develop a sustainable business that is both profitable and on purpose. His published writings and business eGuides have been cited in various trade journals and online sources.
Jeff is an active speaker, coach and photographer when he is not creating new programs and joint ventures. His goal is to positively impact a minimum of 50,000 people each year with his relatable style and timely content.
