Sean will challenge your audience…

Everyone has a masterpiece that exists within them. That masterpiece is their most authentic self that allows them to live their best life. In order to do this, there are two truths that must be acknowledged. First: Where you are is who you are. Your current life is a result of the decisions and choices that you have made. You must take responsibility. Second: The universe wants you to succeed. Success is in our DNA. The instinct to survive is the basis of success. Now that you’ve accepted responsibility for where you are and accept that the universe wants you to succeed there is no more room for victimhood. Sean will challenge the audience to create new associations and stories attached to the events in their lives that will motivate and propel them rather than frustrate and limit them.

Sean was a celebrity contestant on the Italian version of dancing with the stars. It was an absolutely amazing, difficult, and crazy experience. I lived in Italy for almost a year and made friendships which will last a lifetime. I also lasted nine weeks on the show which for a guy with two left feet ain’t too bad. Oh yeah, I had to do the entire show in Italian,” says, Kanan.
