Scott has helped me realize my true potential, encouraging me to have a voice in our company and has supported me wherever needed as we built a leading brand.

He literally took on the smartest VCs in the world, who had invested $100’s of millions, and beat them at their game in shorter time horizon than anyone could have imagined. The insights he had were brilliant and the execution flawless. Scott was an incredible educator and then thought partner that taught me how to think about my business differently, re-create my strategy, and feel more confident with running with less capital. More importantly he came with no ego.”
