Shawn Kinkade is a full time licensed Professional Business Coach and the President of Aspire Business Development, a business strategy, consulting and coaching company located in Leawood Kansas. In addition, he is a member of the Professional Business Coach Alliance (PBCA) and the Heartland Coaches Association.
Shawn lives in Leawood with his wife Carol Kinkade and two children, Connor and Kelsey (15 year old twins). They also share the house with 2 dogs.
Shawn’s past experience has been a mix of Management Consulting and as a Corporate Executive, both roles required extensive work on developing and fixing business processes, leadership, coaching and counseling and a dedicated focus on solving business problems.
After graduating from the University of Missouri – Columbia with a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Shawn took a job with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) and had the opportunity to work with clients across the US and in Australia, helping them solve critical business issues. Although most of the work was in the Telecommunications industry, many of the business problems were common to any business setting.
Once the excitement of living on the road started to wear thin, Shawn took a position with Sprint PCS shortly before they launched their national service. Eventually responsible for over 100 people working in the Finance Operations and Strategy area, this was a great opportunity to mentor and coach individuals and teams and also a great exposure to the financial ins and outs of running a business and supporting new product lines.
Now Shawn is excited about his latest opportunity to help business owners build on their success, take their business to the next level and get back in touch with the fun and excitement they had when they started their business in the first place.
Influenced by Stephen Covey (7 Habits), Michael Gerber (E-Myth), and several other business experts, Shawn uses proven, practical strategies and tools coupled with his straightforward style and wealth of experience to jumpstart you and your business to new heights.
