067: Shawn Stevenson | Sleep Better For Better Health

Oct 1, 2018 | Interviews, Podcast

Today I am joined by best-selling author, and fellow podcaster, Shawn Stevenson. Shawn has been featured in multiple media outlets, as well as being a frequent keynote speaker for various organizations for his work in the world of health + wellness. I wanted to have Shawn come on the show because of his knowledge surrounding the topic of sleep – he wrote the book on it. We also talk about Shawn’s mission to really helping others become the happiest + healthiest versions of themselves.
