In this episode, Michael Dermer speaks to Scott Eddy, a top ten influencer in luxury travel, social media consultant, and entrepreneur. With well over 1 million followers on Twitter, it’s safe to say that Scott knows what he’s doing when it comes to social media. However, it’s not always been an easy road for Scott. After the death of his father, Scott decided to pursue a career as a stockbroker, without any formal training or college education. Ten years as a broker was enough for Scott, so he packed his bags and moved to Thailand, where he started his digital agency during the beginning of the social media era. Bouncing between Asia and Europe for the next 17 years, Scott finally decided to bring his entrepreneurial spirit back to the states, where he now spends his days consulting, running his marketing agency, and traveling around the world.
Scott shares his views on:
- The role of social media in entrepreneurship
- Traveling the world
- Building a brand from the ground up
Scott turned his struggle into success by employing perspectives that allowed him to differentiate his business from anything else on the market. In this episode, you will hear Scott explain his entrepreneurial perspective and how it helped him achieve success.
“If I do something, I do it 100mph. I’m all in or I don’t do it at all. If you’re half in anything then you’re going to fail.”
