#46: You Can’t Change Your Circumstances with JeVon McCormick True Underdog

    • Entrepreneurship

Today we are talking to JT McCormick, CEO of Scribe Writing, where he has now helped over 1700 authors write their story. JT talks about his past, how he grew up with 18 brothers and sisters, who he would occasionally have to steal food for to survive. He talks about how his father’s girlfriend abused and assaulted him and how he went to juvenile detention for fighting back.
However, JT didn’t let his environment dictate how he should live his life. He squeezed as many good lessons as he could out of the people around him.
JT talks about how he has removed the words: hope, wish, and luck from his vocabulary. Find out why JT doesn’t like to use those words, and how he worked his way out a terrible situation, and bad circumstances!
