Raw and Real

Really like listening to Scott’s podcast as it comes across very authentic, raw and real.

Dan Grech ,

Scott is a great human (and an even better podcaster)

I met Scott at a gathering of top entrepreneurs and business owners, and I was taken by his openness and willingness to teach and support other entrepreneurs like me. I dove into his podcast and learned from Scott and some of the best business minds who share their moments of failure and lessons for success. This has my highest recommendation for anyone interested in learning how to run a better business owner

mvelasco07 ,
