Coming from a broken family, Stephen Scoggins tells us about how he was heading down a path that followed in the footsteps of a jaded upbringing.
That was until when he met someone that saw potential in him and took him under his wing. Stephen is a big believer that the success he has had, came as a result of having a great mentor in his life.
Stephen explains in this podcast, that when he was growing up, almost everyone else had succumbed to the motion that he was never going to amount to much.
Stephen’s mentor however, saw a young man with lots of drive and ambition, who needed direction and someone to believe in him.
Quote. “growing up, you don’t know what you don’t know”.

It’s one of the main reasons that I record these podcasts. The content that comes as the result brings an entirely new level of awareness to things that may otherwise have gone unnoticed.
There’s a lot of power in believing in someone. Perhaps there’s someone in your life that you could be breathing belief into. Maybe you should take that as a challenge. Who could you be sewing belief into right now? Who could you take under your wing?
Who in your life could you be sewing belief into right now? Maybe it’s a staff member, maybe it’s a friend, maybe it’s a family member. Who could you take under your wing?
