This was not always the case and Brad discusses with Scott the tremendous challenges he faced in his business during the recession of 2008/2009.

Scott goes into some detail about his morning routine which includes arising at 3:50 a.m. and involves Bible reading, devotions, prayer, conversations with his wife, listening to inspirational music and preaching audios and an intense 90-minute workout with accountability partners. He does all of this and is in his business by 7 AM. Hearing about Scott’s morning routine is a worthwhile listen in and of itself in this episode.
