Helping you beat the odds.

Hey, I’m Scot —

Underdog turned serial entrepreneur. I wasn’t a very good student. I didn’t go to an Ivy League. And I got rejected from business school.

Yet I was able to build a portfolio of companies worth over $1 billion. How?

I scraped the traditional business playbook and built my own.

Now I’m helping thousands of underdogs – in all industries – focus on the stuff that matters. And guess what? They’re already running laps around their competition.

About Me

Most business advice sucks… 

Why? Because it’s dished out by people who have never actually built or scaled a company before. 😱

I cringe thinking about some of the guidance I was given over the years. It felt like throwing things against a wall and seeing what stuck. I wasted so much time and money – I’m sure you’ve been there too.

So I promised myself that one day I would share everything I’ve learned… while it was still fresh, while I was still in my prime.  

If you don’t know me, I’m Scot… underdog turned serial entrepreneur.

Underdog? It started in high school, where I got the shit kicked out of me for only being 4’11”. And it peaked when I got rejected from business school years later after thinking I was a shoe-in.

I guess I’ve always had something to prove. But don’t we all?

No one is more powerful than an underdog with a mission.

I’ve conquered my own mountain. Now I see it as my calling to help you conquer yours.
