A Mindset Forged in Fire with Sean Burroughs

by Apr 12, 2021

Sow the seeds of your life.

After having to live out of his vehicle, and having it stolen one day, Sean realized he had one choice: 

Start over from scratch. 

Having lived a high-intensity life from being a Marine to losing everything, Sean dared to look ahead and start the climb again… Leading him to great success. Today he owns a thriving insurance company and has become a motivational speaker, all because he decided to dig in and start tending the garden of his life. 

His mindset may have been forged through fire and stress, however the life he lives today was carefully cultivated to have the right opportunities and people in it. No matter when he felt stuck or ready to throw in the towel, he could look at what he was building and continue forward. Never quitting has brought him where he is today—and it’s what continues to drive still.
