He first began making motivational speeches at the age of seventeen after he met his idol Tony Robbins through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Stephenson began delivering motivational speeches at the age of 17. With the assistance of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, in 1998 Stephenson met his motivational speaking hero, Tony Robbins. Robbins became his mentor and encouraged him to change his lifestyle to improve his health. While attending DePaul University, Stephenson worked as an intern for President Bill Clinton and for Illinois Congressman Bill Lipinski. After receiving his bachelor's degree in political science in 2001, he published his first book, How You(th) Can Succeed!: Transforming Dreams into Reality for Young Adults, and returned to motivational speaking.
After his speeches, Stephenson found he was often approached by people seeking advice on personal issues. Feeling ill-equipped to advise them, he decided to go back to school and become certified as a therapist. He took courses at Bennett/Stellar University, a private institution specializing in neuro-linguistic programming and hypnotherapy, and at American Pacific University (since renamed Kona University). In March 2004, Stephenson began work on a Doctor of Clinical Hypnotherapy degree at American Pacific. He operated a therapy practice from offices in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois. He also continued to work as a motivational speaker, earning $15,000 to $30,000 per appearance.
His second book, Get Off Your "But": How to End Self-Sabotage and Stand Up for Yourself, was published in 2009. It was a self-help book that recounted his own personal story along with the stories of others, and provided exercises for readers to perform while they read. Tony Robbins provided a foreword. That same year, Stephenson was the subject of Three Foot Giant, a television documentary that aired on The Biography Channel in November 2009.
Stephenson married Mindie Kniss in 2012. On August 28, 2019, Stephenson suffered a serious concussion which resulted in his death.
Because he was born with osteogeneiss imperfecta, all his bones were broken upon his birth. Sean's parents were told he may not survive, and though he did, he struggled with stunted growth and mobility issues throughout his childhood.
