This is it – the moment that Scott has been building up to for the last year. He's been tirelessly working to put a project into the world that is consistent with who he is and what he wants to accomplish. On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you'll hear from Scott as he gives a background story for context, explains how his story has impacted the lives of others, and of course – the big reveal! You'll want to pay extra close attention to this exciting and special episode coming to you on the heels of Brand Accelerator Live!
Setting the stage
If you've been part of the TAS community for very long, you know that Scott has quite the compelling story. From his days working construction with his father to his early days selling on Ebay – Scott's story has been anything but boring. Through all of Scott's successes and challenges – one thing stood out from all the rest – family. Scott's family was the motivator that got him into and then later out of the construction business. He wanted to provide for his family, and he wanted to spend time with his family – these two things are at odds with each other – right? Wrong! Scott soon created a path that would allow him to spend time with his family and provide a comfortable life for them at the same time.
Growing in confidence
While Scott knew he was a competent construction worker – he realized that he did not want to spend 60 hours or more at the job site each week. Scott's skill set he built while working with his father was the key to give Scott the confidence he needed to go out on a limb and try something new. Something new started as a photography business that Scott created with his wife, Lisa. The company grew for a while and then Scott discovered new opportunities to make an income that would provide for his family – ecommerce.
The Amazon Guy
As many of you know – Scott learned the ins and outs of the ecommerce world over several years of retail arbitrage and selling on Amazon and Ebay. Before long, Scott decided to take the insights and lessons he learned from his own experience and offer them to the rest of the ecommerce industry. After several years of The Amazing Seller podcast, Scott became known as “The Amazon Guy.” While Scott is proud of the work he's done with TAS – he started to kind of chafe against getting pegged as “The Amazon Guy.” He knew that his story had so much more potential to impact people beyond the scope of the ecommerce industry.
The next chapter
All of the backstory and building has come to this – the big reveal! Listening to the audio, you really get the sense that Scott is BEYOND excited to share this news and the next chapter with the TAS community.
Scott is now an AUTHOR! He is happy to announce the launch of his new book, “The Take Action Effect: Proven Steps to Build a Future-Proof Business & Create Your Ultimate Freedom.”
