50 State Tour, Why Me

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about his upcoming 50 State Tour and why he is the right person for this tour. Here is the transcript:

Hey everybody. R. Shawn McBride with you here live from the Daytona Beach area in Florida. I wanted to touch base with you. Recently, I was talking about my 50 State Tour. For those of you that haven’t been familiar with it, we are going to do a 50 State Tour of Business. I’m going to go to all 50 states. I’m going to interview at least four business owners in every state about different categories of business. We’re going to collect a great body of knowledge for all of us, and we’re going to learn about what people are doing well in business and how it’s going to build.

Recently, somebody asked me a very interesting question. “Why you for the 50 State Tour?” I don’t think they meant it in a demeaning way, and I don’t think they meant, “You’re not qualified,” but it raised the idea, other people might have a similar question. Why would Shawn McBride be doing this tour and why not somebody else? I think there’s a couple of reasons.

Number one, I have the background. Being a corporate attorney, working with people on their plans, very important stuff, the continuity of their business, their partnerships, getting capital for their business. All these things. Everything I’ve done in my career has surrounded around planning, and with my financial background as a CPA attorney, really I’m well-geared to do it. I have the ability. I’m a very organized person.

A lot of people think a 50 State Tour would be overwhelming for them. We have systems and processes in place in our business that will allow us to do the 50 State Tour successfully without being an undue burden. It really is built into what we’re already doing. It’s additional work, but it fits into what we’re doing.

Additionally, I have the want to do this. Not everybody’s going to want to take the time and the attention to do the 50 State Tour. I’m really excited about the outcome. I’m really excited about getting to the end of the 50 State Tour, seeing what we learn, bringing those lessons to audiences. My abilities as a public speaker and being a host on a podcast, these things are going to allow me to do the tour better, so that’s why. It’s nothing about we’re better than anybody else or whatever.

This 50 State Tour’s a really great fit for where we are in business. I’ve always had a national view of the world. I view us all working together in business. The way our business has come together and evolved, McBride for Business is very well positioned to support and to help us do the 50 State Tour, so that’s why. I’m very excited about it.

Now, I’m going to ask for your help. I’d really like you to help spread the word about the 50 State Tour. I need people to know about this. We need quality companies to apply. If you go to, you could see about the tour. We’d really love to get some quality companies applying to be part of the tour.

We’re looking for sponsors as well. That will add the fuel to the fire. Sponsors are an additional thing that will allow us to support it. We can do some great tie-ins for them, really get them some fantastic exposure and get them in front of a great audience, so we’re interested in that as well. Sponsors and companies at that point are the key. Of course, if you want to follow the tour, feel free to do so. I’ll drop the link below.
