Posted by Scott Bywater in Coaching and Mastermind Program Launch Mar 16th, 2011

This video walks you through my entire journey to go from where I was to where I am today.

You’ll hear about my “anti-abundance” upbringing. You’ll find out about how I was terrible at selling in the beginning and almost got fired from my job. And you’ll discover how I was almost kicked out on the street after my failed experience as a hairdresser.

I’m also going to be sharing a story with you about my wife. After all, without her wisdom and guidance, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Please go easy on me with your comments on the blog. I may come across as if I am strong, centred and certain of myself. But the reality is those close to me know I am actually quite sensitive. So please don’t nail me to the cross for sharing these private details about my life with you.

Watch the video, and leave me a comment below to let me know if you have any other questions about the “More Time at the Beach” Coaching & Mastermind program. I’ll do my best to answer anything you want to know in the next couple of weeks throughout the launch.

    I can’t play the video!

    Thank you for sharing your ‘journey’ – it makes you a REAL person.

    Hi Scott
    That was a gutsy effort, and I hear what you are saying about coaching. I have an 8 year old son who I coach Motocross most afternoons. Some times when I tell him what he should be doing, this or that. If only he would just do it and not let his fear of failure (falling off) kick in. He would nail it.

    I think thats the same with most business owners. If they keep the throttle Wide open and with help from a coach that has past experience, you might not get right the first time but after a few attemps, and as your confidence grows, you will nail it.

    Best of luck and I look forward to hearing more about your coaching programm.

    You inspire me – I love reading your daily tips and information.
    I am moving away from what I currently do and will be in touch with you inside the next couple of months for a session about what I want to do

    Hi, Scott!
    Great job on the video presentation! You are very personable, communicate well … and certainly have nothing to worry about regarding your fears about opening up! Good looking too with a great aussie accent! (Don’t worry – I’m nearly 60 yrs old – and you’re married to a great gal!)

    Will take a look at your course to see if I can do this! Am enjoying your email posts! Thanks!

    I like the style of your presentation. You kept it real by not being too polished, you surrendered something of yourself to show your offer not to be totally one sided and therefore too good to be true and you came across very honest. All the ingredients for good sales & marketing. Excellent work, you definitely have my vote in being market savvy.
    Love your work.

    That was great and puts a person to a name and face. I have been getting your emails for a while and I must admit, you appear “different” in the video. Better than my previous perception of you as a person as this video makes you real and reveals more of who you really are as a person. The sharing of your past was a good idea too. I will be thinking about your offerings with more seriousness now.

  8. Sal C. on March 17, 2011 at 2:54 pm:

    You had nothing to worry about! Nice to see the ‘real’ side of people.
    Love the emails too!

    Hi Scott

    I really amazed to hear – how long you have struggled and thats your determination which took you here. Really wonderful and inspiring – everyone need to follow you if they want to be special.

    Best Regards

    Thanks for sharing your story with us, it’s great to see how far you have come in a short space of time. I would love to know how you got over the money mindset you shared with us in the begining of the video.
    Thanks and keep up the great work and thankyou for all the daily emails.

  11. Juliet Pannozzo on March 17, 2011 at 8:18 pm:

    I can’t see it either. Promise to give some feedback if I can get access!!

  12. Juliet Pannozzo on March 17, 2011 at 8:31 pm:

    Thanks Scott – you seem really approachable and trustworthy. Keep sending those emails.

  13. Margaret Makewell on March 18, 2011 at 5:51 am:

    Good work Scott. Enjoy your emails – when I have time to read them that is – I’m from the mid north coast too. Sure you can make it and sure you will do well.

  14. Karen on March 18, 2011 at 9:36 am:

    Thank you for sharing this as i have not had a real holiday for quite some years.
    It made me realise it just a mindset i grew up with. thank you again

  15. Carol Brett on March 18, 2011 at 10:13 am:

    I am always genuinely impressed with everything you do, Scott, and this video is no different. Interesting, authentic and inspiring – you don’t need my best wishes for success in your new coaching venture, you’ve already got everything it takes.

  16. Amanda Garrett on March 19, 2011 at 5:56 pm:

    Scott, I think we are all similar – appearing strong on the outside, and all sensitive on the inside. For once I think your wife was wrong (she isn’t very often wrong though…) as she was suggesting you not be so open in this video. It worked well. It made you human and believable. I would also be interested in how you overcame that ‘poverty mindset’ – as recognising you have it is not necessarily the same as changing it!
    Always interested in what you are doing. Cheers, Amanda

  17. David on March 21, 2011 at 1:41 pm:

    Hi Scott,

    Can you tell us a bit more about the what is actually included in the mentoring? What is actually included?



  18. Scott Bywater on March 21, 2011 at 6:56 pm:

    Hi David,
    Thanks for your interest. Scott will be detailing that information over the coming weeks.

    I cannot view this and it’s really frustrating me. Please advise on how to view it, oh and by the way, my dream of opening up my shop has finally been put into action, thanks to you!

  20. Scott Bywater on March 24, 2011 at 12:34 pm:

    Hi Titziana, it should be all fixed now. We were having problems with some browsers. Apologies for the inconvenience. Scott

  21. Scott Bywater on March 24, 2011 at 12:35 pm:

    Thanks for all of the positive feedback and comments, everyone. Really appreciate your support 😉
