    in Business

    Scott Tucker is an author, speaker and radio host who has been a purpose driven entrepreneur since the age of 12. At this young age, he began exploring the impact of knowing the "why" in life and business. This drive to put specific purpose to every action has become an invaluable tool in helping him to succeed in various industries throughout his career. During that time, his drive also taught him the dark side of being so focused. While his businesses were thriving, his marriage and happiness were dying. In 2009, he set out on a new journey…a journey to rediscover his own "why." What he found was a burning passion in ministry and coaching. His "why," his purpose, is utilizing his own life experiences and training to help others awaken their own unique purpose and to help them align their life with the path they were created to live!
    Through his coaching sessions, speaking, and radio program, Scott fulfills his quest to “Find Freedom for the Miserably Successful.” Connect with Scott:
