Shawn M. Lewis / Power to Conquer
Author, Financial Adviser and Motivational Speaker
Shawn M. Lewis is a native of Dayton, Ohio, who grew up in the gang infested streets of South East San Diego and Spring Valley, California in 1989-2010. Having to survive through the day to day violent gang activity that was going on in the neighborhood where Shawn lived, he eventually grew tired of seeing the shootings and aggressive environment fueled by violent activity. Shawn knew he had to leave the streets and the gang activity that was consuming him. He wanted more out of life for himself and his family, so he enrolled into San Diego City College following the advice of a friend.
Once Shawn enrolled in college, he became friends with a professor who taught financial planning. Professor Lem Lemons took an interest in Shawn and introduced him to opportunities in business ownership and investing in real estate. This opened up a whole new world of possibilities for Shawn to explore. After studying at San Diego City College for two years, he got a job as a loan officer for a mortgage company in Mira Mesa, California. While working as a loan officer for four years, Shawn became one of the top producers in the mortgage company.
He eventually moved into real estate investing. Through networking, he was allowed to work on projects from San Diego, California to Atlanta, Georgia. Shawn worked on everything from multi-million dollar real estate deals to single family homes. Shawn was blessed to have been taught valuable wealth generating principals. Shawn has worked with banking and lending institutions for seven years, helping clients secure business and home loans. Through Shawn’s experience working in the mortgage industry, doing commercial and residential loans, he has had the opportunity to learn from multi-millionaire business men and motivational speakers. These relationships inspired him in writing the book, “The Right Approach to Financial Survival in America.” Shawn wants to empower people with the right tools to give them confidence in managing their finances successfully in a challenging economy.
