 Jeffrey Shaw is a small business consultant, sought-after speaker, and author of Lingo and The Self-Employed Life.

From selling eggs door-to-door at fourteen to gaining a reputation as one of the most preeminent portrait photographers in the United States, Jeffrey has lived a varied and colorful life with only one thing in common: He’s never, ever worked for a boss other than himself!

Listen in as Jeffrey explains why discovering “the intersection of meaning and marketability” is key to finding success as a self-employed professional. He breaks down the three-element “self-employed ecosystem” that he writes about in The Self-employed Life; namely, personal development, business strategies, and daily habits that create consistent mindsets

As every crisis deepens our humanity, Jeffrey believes there is a call for businesses to be more compassionate, empathetic, and inclusive, now more than ever. He shares how he sees companies redesigning the workforce to accommodate the value-shifts of the last year-and-a-half.
