TEDxYouthOttawa - Shawn MacDonell - 03/04/10

Shawn MacDonell on "Career Chaos - Are you doing what you love?" Shawn has travelled across the world, started (and runs) 3 companies, sits on over a dozen active social enterprise boards and committees, coached four different sports at all levels from local to national, raced cars all over the country, and sometimes attends university. Shawn currently runs Creativision ( an organization with the philosophy that every person has a passion or two that they might not be aware of. Sometimes people either dont know their passions or they just dont do anything with those passions. They become hobbies, things that people look forward to engaging with when they are retired. This, according to Shawn, is definitely not cool! Shawn spends most of his day in the world of educational alternatives, youth leadership, entrepreneurial culture building, and active living encouragement.
