Public speaking is the #1 fear of adults, but why? Up until a few years ago I dreaded speaking in front of an audience myself. Most people aren’t born with the gift of public presentation and as an introvert it can cause a lot of anxiety just thinking…

Lakers fans got their wish yesterday when they landed the #2 pick in the NBA Draft Lottery. They jumped 2 spots with the 4th worst record in the league and avoided falling out of the Top 5 and losing their pick to the 76ers. With this new optimism, here are the Top 3 most likely […]

Is Byron Scott The Right Fit For The Lakers? #nba #lakers 
In the summer of 2014, Lakers fans witnessed one of their own come back home when Byron Scott took the head coaching position. Scott had the visible support of Laker greats such as Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Jamal Wilkes. After the questionable hires of Mike Brown and Mike D’Antoni before him, things seemed to be […]

Introduction
Author. I wrote a book based on my transition from Youth Pastor to Entrepreneur called The Startup Church. Jumping from the non-profit world to owning a business was a challenging, but the experience gives me credibility to help others make career changes.

Blogger. Two of my favorite hobbies are: leadership and sports. I’ve been able to combine both by writing for Lakers Nation, The Lake Show Life and Game 7 Network. I also turned my personal blog into a podcast called Winsight, which uses leadership in sports examples to help you win at the game of life.

Speaker. Nothing is more compelling than a great storyteller. I speak monthly at churches, schools and networking events. I get my inspiration from other exceptional communicators, especially through TED Talks.

I’m a Certified Professional Coach, have a MA in Organizational Leadership and a BA in Psychology.

I love connecting with people and exploring new opportunities/partnerships. Feel free to contact me at scott@growingforward.net
