“Many people come to me feeling broken,” says Scott, “sometimes communication breaks down, passion erodes, trust may appear to be irreparably shattered.  My life’s work is about helping people pick up all the shattered shards of life and find purpose in the pieces. When you look at a hand-crafted mosaic it’s hard to fathom how all the bits and pieces came together to make up a masterpiece.  The same can be true of life. With the right mindset, skills, and strategies, you can use all the pieces of your life, even the broken, messy, painful pieces, to create a meaningful mosaic masterpiece.  Every experience in life can be used as an opportunity to grow more into the person you were meant to be.”
