About The Creator

I Was a Money Moron. Listen To My Story.

Most people have made a few money mistakes. Here's just a few of mine, maybe you can relate:
  • Signing up for student loans without knowing anything about student loans
  • Living paycheck-to-paycheck when I got out of college and not knowing where I spent my money 
  • ​Buying stuff on credit cards and paying interest on it each month
  • Financing a new car with a a huge $800 a month car payment
  • ​Following the bad investing advice of others only to lose $40,000 in the stock market
  • ​Getting ripped off and losing money time and time again because I didn’t know any better
  • ​Buying more house than I could afford (and financing new furniture on top of it!)
And I could go on for hours more, but you get the idea.

If you've done any of these things, welcome my friend! 

You're in the right place, and you're here for a reason.


I stumbled onto a radio show hosted by consumer advocate Clark Howard. And everything changed.

Kinda like everything is about to change for you, right now, now that you're here.

I started learning about debt, saving, and investing. And I turned my life around.

In the first 12 months I saved over $1,000 on just my expenses (which would become one of my books "How To Save $1,000 This Week").

I became a student of money (like you will), and in the process, my life changed (like your life will change). 

By age 35 I was 100% debt-free, no mortgage, and a self-made millionaire.

And now I help others (just like you), no matter their stage, their age, or their wage, change their lives and the lives of their families.

There's something important for you to know!

Listen to this...

It's Not Your Fault!

Schools don't teach about money. And the few that do, don't do a good enough job.

You see, that's where I come in...

I Work 24/7 For You

Having financial freedom at such an early age allowed me to spend more time with my wife - and later on, our twins. I came to a place where I could do anything I wanted in life. I chose to share what I learned with other people in similar situations.

When I started my goal was simple: share the strategies that have helped me build my dream life. And while there is a ton of information out there on the money - my research showed:

Most Money Advice Is Bad, Biased, or Bogus

And let's not even get into the financial jargon people use to confuse (I'm talking to you Wall Street).

All you have to do is follow the money to get to the truth. Unfortunately for most people, the lessons are very expensive. And often people don't realize how expensive they are until decades later when it's too late and the money is looooooong gone.

Or worse - they never figure out the truth, because nobody had their back.

The old-school financial advice doesn't cut it anymore. 

So I set out on a mission to guide people to live like Financial Rock Stars.

You're In The Band

I share my successes and failures to help you reach your own financial goals and afford the lifestyle you dream about and deserve. It’s why I don’t accept any payments, kickbacks, advertising, or paid promotions of any product that would cause a conflict of interest.

I will give you all the options and help you decide what is best for you, based on your goals and financial situation. Everything I talk about is backed up with facts, research, studies and proven advice. Not pie-in-the-sky statements or get-rich-quick schemes.

I've been doing this for six years, and I've got a record of success.

Don't Worry - You're Not Too Late

My show listeners range from age 17 to 77 (the current record). Not to mention all the small children I get to annoy because their parent's listen to me.

How my wife sees our family.

And when I'm in charge of the camera...

If you haven’t figured out the whole money/business/life thing yet, don’t worry, you’re not alone, and you’re not too late.

"I knew Scott when he sold his car and drove a scooter to save money. A decade later, he’s set for life. This guy knows what he’s talking about – so listen!"

Dr. Barry Kaplan, Certified Financial Planner and Chief Investment Office for Modera

I have worked hard to build resources for you that not only helps you build your wealth and avoid the false promises of get-rich-quick schemes, but also helps you live the life you deserve and want. Both for you, and your family.

You Rock!
