Inspiring All Ages to “Go the Extra Mile”
Shawn Anderson is a shining example of taking the lemons in life you’re given and making a big pitcher of lemonade. Back in 2009, when the economy was spiraling downward out of control, he dug down deep and found the inspiration to pedal from San Francisco to Boston, which resulted in his book, Extra Mile America: Stories of Inspiration, Possibility and Purpose.
Instead of focusing on what he couldn’t do, Shawn decided to get on his bike and start pedaling, the result of which is now Extra Mile Day, a national event that has the sole purpose of creating positive change by going the extra mile. In 2014, 527 cities participated in Extra Mile Day by honoring the top volunteers in their communities.
But he didn’t stop there. A six-time author, Shawn’s mission in life is to empower at least 1,000,000 people to live more purposeful and passionate lives. He started as a 10-year-old entrepreneur by selling worms to fishermen, and went on to leverage his passion, motivation and positive attitude to create a multi-million dollar company.
How does a 47-year old non-athlete find the motivation to pedal 4,000 miles across America twice, run a 100-mile race and walk 550 miles across the United States? Shawn says it’s simple, “If you want to create a life that you love…never stop going the extra mile.”
