Before I met Scott, my life was going nowhere. I was in the gutter and all scattered. I was not making money, and I was destitute. Things seemed very hopeless for me. I did not know how to leverage and execute on my passion, which was helping people and families going through the battles of addiction. I did not have the mind-set to do the work I love and having it also be financially profitable for me.
For over eleven years, I have been helping people and families for free, and meanwhile, it was having a negative impact on my own emotional and financial wellbeing because my needs were not being met. I felt guilty asking to be paid for the work I so loved to do. I felt ashamed even at the thought of asking for money for the services I provided for people. In my mind, money was ‘evil’.
I was spending my last dollar in purchasing my book and giving it to a lady who could use it to help her son who was in prison, but in the meanwhile I was broke myself! I did not even have money for gas to go and see a client who would reach out to me through a phone call. I was helping hundreds of people for free with my own needs not being met. Things were destitute.
I reached to a level where I was comfortable in where I was at, but I was lacking growth and lacking even desire to thrive to my fullest potential. I was not happy and lost my inspiration. I did not see the value in my own self-worth. I wrote two books related to addiction and my own journey, and I would hand them out for free to those whom I felt it could help. I even felt too guilty to charge for my books.
I was in deep financial scarcity taking on side jobs whenever I could just to make ends meet. The odd thing is though, the little money that I did earn from these jobs I had to take, I would spend it on my grandkids, feeling that I had to give the money I earned away. And this is what Scott helped me to recognize in my four- hour consultation with him that I was spending my money on my grandkids as it gave me justification for getting paid since I felt so bad internally receiving any money.
What Happened? I reached out to Scott after finding out that he was allowing fifteen people to come onto Passion Projects for free in the month of April when Passion Projects first launched. I was very honored to be the first guest out of fifteen on Passion Projects. Before coming on Passion Projects, I had questions about how I can maximize my business as I was so scattered and confused with so many things I wanted to put into action, but no knowing where to start and how to go about it. So based on the questions I had, Scott offered to do a four -hour consultation with on my business before getting on Passion Projects to maximize and optimize my Passion Projects episode. Scott offered to do it at a discount rate of $1200 having all the proceeds go to Sameena Fernandes as he was sponsoring this for her.
It was too good of an opportunity to pass on, so with only $20 to my name at the time, I accepted the offer to receive Scott’s strategic business consultation.
Scott helped me see the truth of what was blocking me from living a prosperous and abundant life. His consultation geared a whole new direction of how my Passion Projects episode was going to go, and it was a huge success beyond what I could have ever expected it to be. The results were over the charts – over 3000 views and i had less than 800 facebook friends! People were offering to give donations, and offers were coming in to buy my books!
However, after the success, attention and visibility I received from Passion Projects, I was still having a very difficult time asking for money! And, so Scott offered to give me a follow-up session with no extra fee. I came back to see him for a follow-up session.
Scott dug deeper dissecting every part of me he could to get to the underlining root cause of what was still preventing me from making money. I never had anyone help me in this significant way before. And after I left this session, my life altered profoundly!
Scott helped me to open my eyes and see my own self-worth and value for what I have to offer the world. Scott advised me to do interventions as that is where the most money is for the work I was already doing, and he suggested that I should charge a minimum of $5,000 per intervention where I felt guilty to even ask for $500. And if I really could not wrap my head around charging $5,000, then I should charge no less than $3500 to start off with.
Thanks to Scott’s consultation, and the follow-up work that he did with me, I am now in the intervention business where before I met Scott, I was mainly only talking to clients on the phone and I could not justify charging them. I got my first client – a family who I charged $3500 for my intervention which included driving the daughter all the way to a detox centre, and they paid me $3500 with no hesitation. In fact, they were so appreciative of the work I was doing with them that they thought $3500 was too low of a price, so they bought me a new IPhone!
This was my very first intervention. I made nothing in my business prior to this deal. I am at a whole different level now beyond my comprehension, and I have completely shifted my direction and my self-value thanks to Scott’s life-transforming consultation and coaching. And closing my very first deal at $3500 made it REAL,
I am set up with a whole new and effective business plan where it was all up in the air before. For example, I now have questionnaires prepared for the clients, and I keep on adding to it. I am doing more interventions where I am now charging my clients with no hesitation and guilt. I am also coordinating events where people are coming out to see me! I am just blessed with all the attention and people knowing about me and I now have no problem with asking for money! I am also now charging for my books.
Scott helped me to recognize that I can only help the amount of people I want to help to my full capacity if I am financial prosperous and abundant myself. The connections I got from consulting with Scott and from Passion Projects is to date sky rocketing!
I have endless opportunities coming my way that I just grab onto wherever possible. I got so much of inspiration from both Scott still getting his input on certain opportunities that are coming my way, and how I can go about monetizing it.
I am now living the life I dreamed of, a life that I did not even think was possible. I never imagined that I would get paid for something I love doing. I now know what the experience is like to have that AHAAA moment- I often gave it to others, but I never experienced it myself till after Scott’s follow-up consultation. I finally gave myself permission to act on all the things he had coached me to take action on to bring in revenues for myself so that I can live my mission and serve my purpose in a rich and abundant way.
Scott, thank you for giving me the gift in helping me to recognize my own self-worth and value and how I can utilize it to help so many more people that I want to help.
And I thank both you and Sameena Fernandes for continuing to support me in ensuring that I stay on track in the right path that I am on TODAY! I am now living a very happy, resourceful and carefree lifestyle doing the work that I am most passionate about and getting paid for it with having no guilt or resistance about it.
All this would not have come to be for me if it weren’t for your consultation and for the follow-up that was pivotal for me which had me change the direction of my life. I am now thriving both in my personal and professional life, thanks to the profound work you did with me.
