“No one knows better how to help the former you like the present you.” These are the words of award-winning and eight-figure entrepreneur Stephen Scoggins. As someone who went from being homeless to running multiple businesses, Scoggins has lived this statement to its depths.
Today, we are all facing a world that has been completely reshaped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses have taken a bit hit, people are struggling to pay the mortgage payments on their homes, and people are questioning everything about their lives. Many today are looking for answers.
Stephen Scoggins’ story was one of the humblest beginnings. He was sleeping in a borrowed car at the time he started his construction company. He hoped and prayed for a breakthrough, and today, his company is nearing a nine-figure valuation. His way of paying it forward is through The Journey Principles Institute, which exists to help people break free and become unstoppable in every area of their lives and businesses.
When Stephen was 16 years old, his father’s employer pulled him aside without any warning and started giving him unsolicited advice. The insights he gathered in that single encounter made him realize later in life how important it is to have a mentor, someone who speaks the truth and who is not afraid to make a correction when it is necessary. One of the notable things that his father’s employer mentioned was the importance of personal development as an instrumental in achieving success in life and in business.
Stephen Scoggins’ upcoming book, From Stuck to Unstoppable, focuses on empowering people to chase their dreams to essentially live the meaningful life they desire. Stephen continues to challenge and uplift people to break down the obstacles holding them back to reach their version of success. Stephen has taken over decades of failures, errors, and setbacks and transparently incorporates those experiences to provide simple-yet-effective step-by-step lessons to help others reclaim their hope and proceed with their dreams. To be known for the lives he had uplifted to evoke positive change within their everyday lives would be Stephen’s version of success. His heart is to create a legacy that outlives himself through bettering others through his businesses.
From sleeping in a car to constructing multimillion-dollar businesses, Stephen Scoggins is a spokesperson to individuals seeking entry to the entrepreneurial world. “What I would like to be known for is how many lives I can help to create positive changes within their lives. My heart is to create a legacy that outlives my existence by changing the lives of others for the better.” Stephen has incorporated his philanthropic beliefs into his work to empower those around him to look beyond themselves.
