Plenty of entrepreneurs have faced failure in some form or another.
A product flops. The company goes bankrupt. A business partnership sours. A worldwide pandemic shutters a business that was thriving just months before.
It’s a cliche to say that it’s not what happens to you that matters, it’s how you react—but it’s also very true.
Stephen Scoggins is one of the many entrepreneurs who’ve managed to come through failure to the other side. The founder of a successful construction company, Custom Home Exteriors, and a highly sought-after motivational speaker, Scoggins has faced multiple challenges, setbacks, and failures throughout his life—including homelessness and destitution.
Today, his message is based on the belief that there is a tremendous amount of power in each person that can help define their future as they want it to be.

or 43 years, he has handled various setbacks, obstacles, failures, losses, breakdowns, comebacks, and successes in a giant stride. He applies the lessons that have worked for him transparently to help others become successful too.
When Stephen tells his story, a part that nobody can miss is how he launched his construction company when he had no home and slept in a car that he borrowed from a friend. His success was hinged primarily on the support he got from his mentors and a second chance to fix things in his life.
