    • Ambiguity ruled his mind for a long time.
    • He’s gone from working with global brands to small companies, to small business owners exclusively.
  • What is the number one thing you’ve been able to help businesses with?
    • The majority of small business owners don’t know where they’re going.
      • This is a tell-tale sign that they don’t have a vision for their business or family.
    • They ask business owners, do you have a written, articulated vision story of where you’re going?
    • Do you have a structure of team meetings in place so that you, your team, and stakeholders can collaborate on a regular basis?
  • Do you believe that what you know or who you know is more important, and why?
    • What do you bring to the how and the who?
    • We often give strategy responses to capture the moment.
    • Begin to bring the “why,” what drives you out of bed, and the “where,” where are you going?
    • There’s nothing more empty than leaving a conversation with the how and the who.
  • How would you define networking specifically?
    • Networking is a performance stage.
    • The performance is not for your glory, it’s for your service to others.
    • Scott is an introvert but can fool a lot of people into thinking that he’s an expert.

    • If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re going to confuse people.
