Learning From Ego to Create a Hero’s Journey with Scott Oldford
Scott Oldford has been an entrepreneur since he was 7 years old! He started selling eggs out of his parents garage. By the age of 9, he learned how to program computers and by the time he was 13, he had a team across the world.
By 16, he was discovered by “the media” and won a bunch of awards. Business came naturally to him DESPITE being really poor in school. He was overweight, not liked by his peers and he enjoyed the “virtual” world more than the “real” world
Between the ages of 16-21, he started a LOT of different businesses and was mentored by some EPIC entrepreneurs… but, as what happens with a LOT of early success, Scotts EGO crushed him. He ended up losing everything. At the age of 21, he was nearly $1,000,000 in debt and suffering from depression.
Like all “hero” stories, he had a moment of reckoning and decided “this was enough”. This is when his next business was born. He started teaching everything I had discovered in entrepreneurship so far in this program.
It was a HIT. He sold millions upon millions of dollars from this program. He went from having NO following online to being followed by hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs.
By 2017, he was completely out of debt and generating more than enough money to live my dream life, but something was still missing. I realized that what got me out of debt, wasn’t going to fulfill me in the long-run. So I went nomadic… 3 weeks later, I met the love of my life and now wife and fellow entrepreneur, Libby Crow.
During this time, he had a LOT of free time and space to think. I completely reinvented himself both personally and professionally. He started developing systems, frameworks and methods based on everything he had learned about entrepreneurship.
TODAY, Scott Oldford is the mentor and investor in many of the top online experts and influencers who have built multi-million dollar businesses. He’s been featured on TIME, Entrepreneur, Inc, Business Insider, CBS, NBC and influences hundreds of thousands of Entrepreneurs who are looking to grow their businesses past the multiple million dollar stage.
