Hello, I’m Shay! Let me briefly introduce myself before describing the mission and opportunities the Intellectual Rebel Network (IRN) offers you. I am an author, speaker, serial entrepreneur (founding 3 businesses by age 24), and the founder of IRN. I live with a “WE mentality” because I have experienced the “POWER of WE.” I discuss this concept in the YouTube video below. IRN is a network of opportunity for open-minded individuals to find and connect with one another (“BUILD the WE.”) IRN serves those who are rebellious enough to think for themselves as a platform to express themselves regarding the relevant topics discussed here on the blog, “Member’s Only” forums, and podcast. IRN serves those of you who would like to promote yourself or your ideas with the opportunity to create original content on the blog as a “Guest Contributor.” After publishing an article on the blog, you will potentially have the opportunity to be a guest on the podcast. The world desperately needs to hear your ORGANIC THOUGHTS! Feel free to share any of your thoughts with me via the Contact Form at the bottom of this page.

What is an Intellectual Rebel?
For me to define who an intellectual rebel is in a simple way, I will begin with my definition of the words, intellectual and rebel. I define an intellectual as someone who regularly engages in critical thinking, research, and reflection about oneself, those they care about, or society while predominately focusing on potential solutions to the problems the intellectual perceives; many times, these solutions may seem somewhat “out of the box” when compared to conventional solutions. For this context, I define a rebel as someone who opposes and challenges the conventional, “status quo way of doing things” (traditional belief systems), especially when the rebel sees potential solutions that, logically, seem to be much more efficient and practical in accomplishing the task at hand. Hence, an intellectual rebel is a rare individual who actually uses their brain to generate original thoughts, and who does not simply believe and regurgitate what other PEOPLE (i.e. the mainstream media news outlets) have told them to be true.
If you are an intellectual rebel, then you are an endangered species. Some may call you a hell-raiser because you question everything. Others may laugh at your “crazy willingness” to try out unconventional solutions, when the “status quo way of doing things” just isn’t doing it for you. Many will talk about you behind your back because jealousy is rampant. Well, I am here to tell you, “Welcome home, superhero.” Opportunity for you runs rampant here at IRN. You have the opportunity to become involved as much as you would like, earn rewards, progress professionally (by building a relationship with the founder along with fellow intellectual rebels), and grow interpersonally.
IRN offers you limitless opportunity. Intellectual Rebel Network (IRN) has many features that empower you to initiate progress on topics of interest to you, build valuable relationships with fellow intellectual rebels, partake in good conversation, and be recognized for valuable content. You have the opportunity to “EARN with IRN” via earning points that can be redeemed for prizes. You earn points from being actively involved, sharing content, recruiting new members who either are or want to become an intellectual rebel. A page in the near future will explain all of the “IRN Rewards Program” details. You have the opportunity to progress professionally via the “Conquering Progress Program” (1 on 1 Business Consulting). You have the opportunity to grow on a personal level by reading iSin: Upgrade to Life 2.0, a read specialized in stimulating self-awareness and progressing emotional intelligence. Stimulating self-awareness and emotional intelligence are the first steps for you to truly begin to understand how GREAT your potential really is, if you already didn’t know. You have the opportunity to discuss any problems you are enduring and receive good feedback by posting in the “Self-Improvement” category of the “Member’s Only” forum. Lastly, you have the opportunity to become involved with the “Solution Shay” program, which is a 1 on 1 personal consulting program with founder, Shay Dawkins, which includes a free initial phone call with him. For more info, visit the “Solution Shay” page; it includes audio from him, testimonials, and past results generated from the unique programs he has created on a situation to situation basis.
