Sean has had a life that many would call successful: at just 21years old he was already on the cover of the Business Section of the Los Angeles Times and was participating in USC’s entrepreneurship program.
He has produced 3 released films and other content, and has also worked with Los Angeles Center Studios.
When the stock market crashed in 2008, Sean accepted an offer to become a managing partner of Greenhouse Holdings, which focused on financing sustainable residential housing. He and his other partners soon expanded the company into the commercial and military sectors.
During this time, Sean was also mentoring Navy Seals transitioning from military to civilian life in the business world.
Suddenly, in November 2011, all of these accomplishments no longer mattered.
At age 39, Sean suffered a stroke from a massive blood clot in his carotid artery. He was induced into a coma for 10 days and had to undergo several surgeries. Doctors predicted he would never speak, walk, or live a normal life again.
I can, I shall, I will.
This mantra helped him through the most difficult times in his life.
Even with this diagnosis, Sean displayed unwavering strength and spent his next years rehabilitating his soul and body—overcoming the mental barrier of “why me?”—proving to himself and everyone else that he had a purpose in life, that he was chosen for a reason, and that he had the motivation to keep going for even more.
After many years of carefully following all kinds of recommendations and advice in order to regain his independence and having failed and succeeded with many of those treatments, Sean now knew what worked and what didn’t… He had finally managed to hack his stroke.
He was now a different person, full of understanding, compassion, humility, and an example of inspiration in times of trouble. His life had changed. He was starting over… with many more obstacles, but with a motivation bigger than himself: to help others.
Thus, the Stroke Hacker Community was born.
Many people were inspired by his story, and those who went through a similar journey reached out to him for help and advice.
Now, those who have suffered from brain injuries have a place where they can share their stories, their accomplishments, and their own tips for improving their overall health and wellness. Guided by Sean, they have discovered their sense of purpose and hope and are getting closer and closer to their recoveries, their independence, and everything they dream of getting back.
The StrokeHacker Methodology
A simple, yet powerful approach.
We ask the important questions: What is your current situation and what do you want to achieve? What is your perspective on your situation and how does that need to change to get there? What are you doing to accomplish your goals and what behaviors do you need to change?
We assess your opportunities: There are many scattered solutions offered out there, but in our experience, each stroke survivor’s situation is unique, and they need tailored solutions that will work for them. Merely going through the standard motions won’t cut it. We need a clear path with someone in our corner, guiding us, and pushing us to our new levels at each stage.
We work together to achieve the unbelievable: With StrokeHacker, you can overcome your difficulties and achieve a new reality. A shared commitment to your mission and accountability will allow you to reach your goals. Together. We will adjust your perspective. We will manage change. We will redefine your new reality.
