About Shahryar Sadree




gold brickWhat would you do if someone handed you one of these today?  Would you hesitate to accept it?  Would you just take it and bury it in the yard, or throw it in a closet? Or would you graciously accept this most valuable gift and use it to better the quality of your life?  You are probably thinking: What does a brick made of solid gold have to do with me?  Well, nothing, but knowledge is very much like that brick of gold… it only has value if you accept it and apply it toward something equal of value.

I spent most of my life building in the landscape construction trade.  My works of art only hold their value if the people who paid to have them constructed took good care of them.  I have applied the same level of commitment in every area of my life and have accomplished some amazing things.

My name is Shahryar Sadree and It’s pronounced exactly the way it is spelled: SHAH – REE – ARE     SAD – REE.  I am an artist of many trades.  My specialty is design and build.  I am a creator of valuable things, and today I build people.

Humble Beginnings

I was born in Tehran, Iran in 1969 and moved here to the United States in 1974.  Growing up was not easy as an immigrant.   As a result, I was the target for bullies

I became a a citizen of this country in 1983 and changed my first name Shaun, For the purpose of making it easier on others to pronounce my name, and also to avoid the spotlight of the foreigner.  Consequently, this was the beginning of a troubled life that would end in my enlightenment.

Life of Turmoil

My early beginnings took me to some very dark places that eventually led to the loss my own identity.  I was a lost soul wondering aimlessly in a pit of darkness, and comfortably numb most of the time.  No doubt that my life was a mess back then. I still managed to stumble upon success from time to time.  My determination to succeed in life no matter what was my attitude then and I still have it now.  Determination is the attitude that builds winners.


Shahryar Sadree: The Rock Star

Aarson 1999 – 2007

My first love has always been music.  I played professionally for many years since my early twenties.  Ultimately, I devoted much of my life to becoming a career musician.  In 2002, what looked like a break came my way.  Accordingly, me and the rest of the band moved to Los Angeles, California to begin a music career (leaving behind homes, families and businesses).  As it turned out, the only thing we came back home with from LA was an education, and a very expensive one.  LA wasn’t a total failure because I used that knowledge to do other things.  Ironically, I did eventually become a rock star, but not exactly what I had in mind.

Shahryar Sadree: The Landscape Artist

seahorseI used what I learned in LA to build a brand for myself as a rock and stone artist.  My work is very unique and of the highest quality of workmanship and design.  The Landscape Artist, as I have come to be known, has successfully stood out from every other landscape company in this part of the country.  In fact, coffee table books around the world have my work in them. As a result, I have also had international interns fly to the United States from Europe to learn my techniques of landscaping.

Life Coach / Business Consultant

People ask what qualifies me to teach others.  If you are looking for formal certificates or degrees, I don’t have them.  Today, we live in the era of information. Traditional schooling has become limited and obsolete.

The internet became publicly available on August 6, 1991, and many people still haven’t taken advantage of it.  The Internet is my porthole to an education beyond what any school could have ever given me, and it only costs my time.  If you are looking for a way to a better life, who better to guide you than someone who successfully found their way out of hell and onto a mountain top?

 Motivational Speaker

motivational speakerSharing what I have learned over the years is what I do.  I feel it is my calling and purpose in life to help others find their way to happiness.  For some, happiness is just a dream.  Others see happiness as a false promise.  Living paycheck-to-paycheck, I can see how that may seem to be true under those circumstances.  In all honesty, I felt that way too at one point in my life.  It wasn’t until I started to search deeper within that I found this place we all yearn to find.  Happiness is a reality we can all experience.  This is what my lectures are all about!



Business Coach

Do you really need a business coach?  There are so many small businesses that could use some help improving their credibility.  This crucial element can literally make or break a business.  Too many small business owners think their credibility is fine where it is.  What they fail to realize is that,  although their name may be in good standing with a few repeat customers, what they appear to be online is a much different picture.

Who Needs a Business Coach?

If you are doing business the same way you were ten years or more ago, you may need some help catching up with the times.  You don’t have a website or think you don’t need one, you might consider this as an option.  If you see no value in the internet at all, you really need the help.  This article will enlighten you.

There are just too many people that need the help.  But it’s their mindset that disqualifies them from ever being able to get the help they need.  Being open to new ideas is the first step toward getting better results for your business.

Missing Something?

To fix a business that’s in trouble, the fix begins at the owner.  Small businesses are usually in full control of an owner/ operator.  This person has been doing almost everything from the beginning.  By now, there is just too much going on to keep the ship afloat.  Not much time is left to think about things like marketing, branding or reputation management.

business coachMost small businesses only pay for advertising.  Those that do often do this blind.  Ad companies that cater to small budgets do not have the best interest of the small businesses at heart.  Since advertising has no performance guarantee, the only one who gains from this arrangement is the ad company.

All of the ad companies are looking for unsuspecting new customers to pay them whatever they can get.  Some business owners will still continue to pay for a little exposure.  What they are missing is the guidance that will save them thousands of their hard-earned dollars per year.  They also miss out on the quality customers that will leave positive reviews for others to see.

Opportunity is Here!

Sadree is not an ad company.  In fact, His focus is more on what people see when they find you.  If you aren’t ready for exposure, that monthly payment will cost you business instead of bringing in business.   Also, putting your best out there will help protect your reputation from people who troll on the internet.  Having a business coach who can help you steer past these troublesome areas is well worth the investment!  Ask yourself:  How many others you have talked to care this much for your Success?

The Internet Consultant

Who Needs an Internet Consultant?

An Internet Consultant is a personal trainer that can strengthen any small business owner into a tech savvy entrepreneur in a few months or less.  If you don’t know enough about the Internet to know the value of a strong web presence by now, it would be a great investment to make this year.  The Internet has been available to private businesses since 1991.  It leveled the playing field for all industries and gave the power to the people to rise above the corporate giants.  It also liberated small businesses from phone book companies who charge ridiculous rates to keep the small businesses paying their high premiums month after month.  Unfortunately, too many businesses would rater pay more for less.  If you are one of these… you needed the help back in 91, but today is also a good day to be free.

Why You Need Me

Many small businesses are owner-operated by people who know little about the changes in the way modern businesses are run today.  The modern business world is conducted on the internet today, and the those who have the advantage know this.

Everything has to be made available for portable devices such as smart phones and tablets.  Laptop computers are almost obsolete now, so if your small business doesn’t have a website yet…you are invisible to your customers.  If your website is outdated, you look like an amateur to them, even if you have been in business for 30 years or more.  Some business owners think they don’t need the Internet.  Everything is online today.  Some business owners just don’t have the time to learn it.  That’s why you need me.

I Was Just Like You

When I finally came to terms with all of this, I was still using a beeper, and trying to avoid computers at all costs!  The year was 1998, and an amazing woman came into my life and made me a believer!  My wife, Angie took away my beeper and replaced it with a cell phone.  Then, she sat me down in front of a computer every night after work and helped me understand the value of going online.  After a year or so, my businesses did better that ever, but I was still making excuses for not doing more online.

A decline in the housing market resulted in a crash, and it took my landscape business with it.  By summer of 2008, the phone stopped ringing.  I was spending huge budgets on worthless advertising month after month.  More advertisers were calling me daily to help empty my bank accounts, making false promises of non-existent opportunities.  I finally pulled the plug and went in another direction.  My word-of-mouth clients were drying up, but I still had a few jobs to complete.

There are those who genuinely care and take pride in their craft (that was me). If you don’t take the time to put something back into your business, eventually it will fail (mine almost did).  Strong businesses are those that are being well maintained.  Like a ship, the business is only as strong as its captain.  A great captain is always improving himself/ herself, the crew and the ship.

 Internet Consultant: Why Trust Sadree?

Because, I was like you… desperately needing help to understand something I couldn’t wrap my head around.  I needed an internet consultant, not more advertising.

I started helping business owners understand the power of the web back in 2009.  After working with several programmers one-on-one, and also learning from friends with advanced computer skills, I wanted to share my new found knowledge with the world!

A friend and I were working together on doing something with an outdated website I had built myself years prior.  This venture would eventually become a web development company that I run with currently called Sadree Web Design.  One of my partners went off to Philadelphia and started his own company.  He is a software engineer and doing quite well.  we still work together, but independently.  Today, I have partnered up with another one of our first programmers, David Leonard.  David and my friend Brian helped me understand and apply what I know today.  This is what I pass on to my clients.

Word-Of-Mouth is Marketing Not Advertising

2016 was another slow year for landscaping.  2017 isn’t much better.  People aren’t spending money on landscaping.  The most scary thing for a business is when the phones stop ringing.

Word-of-mouth can only take you so far.  If you think you are getting calls from it, think of the ones you are missing.  People who hear your name are checking you out online.  Still think your reputation and credibility online isn’t important?

Brand Building: Do It Now!

dynamic web brandingIf you are planning to continue your business into the future, you should have already been establishing your brand.  A brand is more than just a name or logo.  It’s something your target audience is familiar with and can trust.  If your web presence isn’t established by now, online you appear amateur.  Although you might have decades of experience and lots of customers already, the world online views things differently.  You may have great reviews, but pulling it all together is what professional businesses do these days.  What are you waiting for?

“Your Success is My Business.”

The most gratifying experience is helping someone else achieve success. Both parties share in the rewards.  I believe that the true rewards in life come in other forms of currency than just money.  I put my passion behind every project I take on from start to finish.  The work is more than just another paycheck.  I feel that if I put my name on it, then the work has to be worth something.  Integrity is my trademark.  Let me help you achieve a new level of success as your internet consultant.

What is a Life Coach?

By definition, a life coach is someone who counsels and encourages clients on matters having to do with careers or personal challenges.

Life Coaching is a profession that is quite different than  psychology, counseling, or social work.  The process begins with an initial meeting (to see if we are a good fit).  Life Coaching addresses specific areas where a client may want to improve on, but has no idea where to start.  This could include but not be limited to:

  • Self Esteem issuesLife Coach
  • Self Discovery
  • Love Relationships 
  • Business Relationships
  • Career Goals
  • Personal Problems
  • Spiritual / Finding Your Purpose
  • Creative Discovery
  • And More…

Basically, a life coach is someone who will sit down with you and find your ideal life’s vision, discover what is blocking your way to it, and help you come up with a plan to overcome your fears and live your dreams.  Keep in mind, You will be doing the work, but having someone lighting the way for you makes it a little easier.

Do I Really Need a Life Coach?

That is a question only you can answer.  Most people think they don’t need a life coach.  Those that hire life coaches are people who are tired of trying their own failed methods, and value the insight of someone else who has found their way to success.  These people value the precious time that ticks away from their lives with every failed attempt.  Some even value their relationships, jobs, or careers that are in jeopardy because of their uncontrollable thoughts or behaviors.

Other people just want a different approach or perspective so they can better themselves.  It has been said “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”

Why This Guy?

Hiring a life coach is a pretty important decision.  I wouldn’t take advice on marriage from someone who cheats on their partner.  I would be hesitant to follow a business plan from someone who cheats on their taxes or has no ethical compass when it comes to doing business.  These are some things to keep in mind.

People in general are well intended, but the roads to hell are paved with good intent.  Most of us have made many mistakes that we aren’t proud of.  Learning from our mistakes is where growth happens.  It is actually inspiring to see that in people these days.  Owning our mistakes is the only way to learn from them.

shahryar and angie sadreeThe lessons I learned from my first failed marriage kept my second one going for almost 20 years now.  I am happily married to an amazing woman who is the partner I have looked for my whole life.  I value that relationship, so respect is not something I am willing to compromise.

My businesses are successful because I share my thoughts with my life partner.  She has helped me become the success I am today.  I have always wanted to help people, like my father, who was a man of medicine.  Although my path took me in a different direction, my passion for being a source of aid to my fellow brethren is very much in line with the dreams of my father.


The Author, Shahryar Sadree

author shahryar sadreeAuthor, Shahryar Sadree is a unique and multi-talented  individual.  He is self educated and has written four books (two of which are published).  In March of 2016 Sadree published Higher Powered: a book of powerful secrets to finding happiness.  By mid November 2016, he began the editing process for his second book Highest Self: a book of powerful secrets to leash the ego.  These book projects were the start of a new chapter in life for Sadree.

Author, Shahryar Sadree

Author, Shahryar Sadree wrote and completed two books prior to the Higher Powered series.  Sadree decided not to publish either project, but rather take his first step forward with a masterpiece.  A career as a writer was not going to be easy, as learning something new rarely is.  All in all, the time and money  invested in the beginning was well worthwhile.

The project started with years of research on human behavior patterns, religions, and some of his own life experiences.  Sadree took deep interest in history and science as a student in high school.  Although college wasn’t something he would peruse later, keeping the open mind of a student would help him later in his life.

Indeed, this decision was a huge disappointment to his father, who was a doctor of medicine and an advocate of higher education.  But, Shahryar had another plan.  His method of self education has proven to be more effective and less costly than a formal one.

Higher PoweredHigher Powered would require more research on history, science and even delve into religion.  Using his own experience with the horrors of addiction and the hard-won freedom from it, Sadree created a masterpiece of literary art.  This is his story.  One that covers everything from overcoming fear to making better choices.  This book also includes an overview on the laws of nature.

Living as the Spirit

In Highest Self, Sadree takes his readers a step further in their journey of enlightenment.  Living as the spirit is where (according to Sadree) the dreams unfold into reality.  This point of view is not uncommon, but put into context like it is in this book, makes it very easy to understand and accept.

Highest SelfThe ego is cunning and powerful.  It is merely a tool, and yet we give it enormous power to eventually take over our lives and our world.  We think it is who we are, so without question we accept what we believe.  As a result, we are actually living a false version of who we are.  Our ego is the impostor that takes the place of our highest self and keeps us from seeing the truth.  As long as we hold on to our five senses to guide us, we will never be able to access the sixth.  It is the sixth sense that opens doors to spiritual freedom.  We have let our ego control us for so long, we have become prisoners to it in our minds.  Once we realize that our ego is the puppet pulling the strings of the puppeteer, a new reality unfolds before our eyes…and life will never be the same.

Put Your Mind To It and You Will Achieve It

Down in a Hole is an eye-opening look into a side of life that many of us don’t pay much attention to.  Our society seems to be declining, as people are starving for knowledge in the age of information.  We live in a world of confusion and because we are often too much in a hurry for instant satisfaction, we land our lives in a ditch.

What we label as “problems” have a perfectly rational explanation…if we allow ourselves to see it. We are equipped with the tools to work our way towards solutions, yet we chose to make ourselves the victim of our own creations.  We do this unconsciously because we have never taken the time to explore the most valuable resource on the planet, and we all have one…the human mind.

The incredible Mind

We know so little about this marvel of life, that we often confuse it with the brain, which is actually a component of the physical body (our vehicle).  Only a small number of humans know just how powerful the mind actually is.  Those who have unlocked it have become gods in the flesh.  The secret is out for all who want it.  To unlock this amazing wonder tool, we have to first understand what it is and how it works. When we do, we are given access to a completely different point of view. Our walls come down and the adventure begins! Because when you’re down in a hole, your view is limited… and so are the opportunities that make life worth living!

This book will be available Late in 2019.  You won’t want to miss this one!

For the Small Business Owner 

As some of you are wondering… when is Sadree going to write something related to finding success and happiness in the world of business?  Well, that has also been in the works for some time now.  Reaching out to small businesses is a daily activity in 2018.  Little time to write, but Shahryar has been taking notes as he is working with his coaching clients.  Most common issues that hinder all failing businesses seems to be a closed minded owner that is determined to achieve better by doing the same things.

Small business owners have little time to read.  Also, getting them to follow through with a new idea will require something with little effort on their part.  Sadree is working on a small booklet, and maybe even an audio book or video book… lets see what happens!
