Shawn Boyer

Founder & CEO
goHappy

Shawn Boyer is the Founder of goHappy, a social media platform that helps people actually be social in real life. “The impetus for starting goHappy was to help people become more intentional about their most important relationships, as I know both in my own life and from the extensive research available, most of us aren’t nearly as intentional about our relationships as we are with our work,” Shawn said. Prior to goHappy, Shawn founded Snagajob, the nation’s largest marketplace for hourly work, with over 75 million members and 400,000 employers. Snagajob was named to Fortune magazine’s Great Place to Work® Best Small & Medium Workplaces list 8 straight years, including the #1 ranking in 2011. In 2008, he was named the National Small Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration and received public recognition from President George W. Bush.
