About Us

Shawn Buttner, CEO of Shawn Buttner High Performance Coaching, is one of 200 Certified High Performance Coaches in the world helping people reach the next level of their lives so that they can experience more joy, growth, and impact every day.


After Shawn finished his masters in Information Systems from Indiana University, he started work at Wal-Mart’s Information Systems Division as a professional nerd.  Dealing with a huge amount of student debt, he began his journey to figure out his finances and his purpose in the world.   


Over five years, he read and took courses on personal finance, self-improvement, leadership, and software development in his quest to become debt free.  He started a business to help others figure out their student debt, and failed to have the reach he wanted with it.

From all of this struggle, things started to turn around.  He found a job at Apple as a QA software engineer.  He paid off his $80k in student debt in 7.5 years. He found his passion - helping others achieve higher performance through coaching - and became certified in high performance coaching.

Some of his clients include executives and mental health profressionals.  Here is what Devin, CTO of Screenpush International, had to say:


“The best part of Shawn's life coaching was the incredible, candid, insight into how I was preventing my own success. He provided me with tools tailored to my needs specific to each roadblock. After the first session I was already seeing results in my life!”
