Part 1: On this episode, I speak with Shawn Jackson and Dr. Eric Mitchell. Shawn is an up and coming entrepreneur as the owner of Upstylish: The New Style as well as Big Baller services. Dr. Eric is a former orthopedic surgeon, retired Army Colonel and author of The Flow of Life: Keeping Your Dream Alive as well as Cannabis Sativa the Truth Be Told: Good Research = Good Outcomes. He currently is the managing member of Hemp Commodity Industries, LLC based in Maine. They share their story of how Shawn met Dr. Eric during one of the most challenging times in his life, which included being homeless, broke and in a place where he didn’t know anyone. Through a chance encounter (although we know there is no such thing as “chance” since everything is meant to be) Dr. Eric took Shawn under his wing and instilled the personal development values in him that he, himself, had learned growing up to help Shawn become the thriving entrepreneur he is today!
