Helping others get “Unstuck”
Let's face it – no one likes to get stuck anywhere. You get stuck at work; you get stuck in traffic, rarely do you get stuck doing something fun. What if you could go from stuck in your business and life to unstuck? What would that mean for you and your family? Scott's passion in this next phase of his career is to help leaders like you get unstuck. Drawing on his own experience of successes and setbacks – Scott encourages you to learn the lessons he had to learn the hard way.
Don't be afraid to ask for help!
Let's face it – business leaders are often a stubborn bunch. How do you get someone so focused on building something from the ground up to reach out and ask for help when they need it? Scott came to the point where he wanted to expand his message and get his unique perspective out to a broader audience. Then the doubt started to creep in. He was so sold on this idea to write a book to help others that he decided to do the hard thing and reach out to a book editor who could help him reach his goal.
