About my guest

Jeff Shinabarger refers to himself as just some guy in East Atlanta Village who’s trying to be a good husband and a good dad. Yet in that process he’s introducing social entrepreneurship and changing his entire community.

Jeff (who’s got a great name) likes to solve problems. He notices things that are broken and feels a responsibility to fix them. This passion is allowing him be the change he wants to see by being involved in community and learning to love his neighbors–even the neighbors who didn’t have homes.

He wakes up every morning and asks himself: What is the most important decision I can make today to promote my personal life or move my business or this vision forward in some way?
