About the Author

How many people can say they've never worked for anyone else? Selling eggs door-to-door at fourteen years of age began a lifetime of self-employment. Now, as an experienced speaker and small-business consultant, Jeffrey Shaw helps self-employed and small-business owners gain control of their business in what otherwise seems like uncontrollable circumstances.

Drawing on his expertise as a renowned portrait photographer, Jeffrey shows business owners how to view business through a different lens and offers proven strategies for arranging the often chaotic pieces of life and business into a composition of sustainable success. From a very early age, Jeffrey read self-help books, hiding them from his family so they didn't think he was weird. One of his favorites is The Power of Positive Thinking, by Norman Vincent Peale. Many years later, having the honor to photograph Dr. Peale and his wife, Ruth, was a career milestone. That portrait now prominently hangs in the entrance of The Norman Vincent Peale Center. Jeffrey's portraits have also appeared on Oprah and CBS News, in People magazine and O, The Oprah Magazine, and hang at other prestigious places such as Harvard University.

Jeffrey's TEDxLincolnSquare talk, "The Validation Paradox: Finding Your Best Through Others," is featured on He's the host of the top-rated podcast The Self-Employed Life, author of LINGO: Discover Your Ideal Customer's Secret Language and Make Your Business Irresistible and The Self-Employed Life: Business and Personal Development Strategies that Create Sustainable Success. Jeffrey is also founder of Voices of The Self-Employed advocacy group and creator of The Self-Employed Business School.

Jeffrey has three adult kids, and when he's not traveling, he's often hosting Waffle Sundays at his home in Miami, where friends old and new gather for homemade waffles, a mimosa or two, camaraderie, and genuine connection.
