Through all the ups and downs, you’ve journeyed with Scott to (or you just joined us for) another milestone in the life of The Amazing Seller! To mark this special occasion, Scott is taking a moment to take a look back at the journey so far. On this episode, you’ll hear Scott as he explains how he went from the Amazon guy to brand building coach, speaker, and author! 

It’s worth it after all of the hard work it takes to reach a milestone to reflect on what worked, what didn’t, and what the plan is going forward. Pay close attention, you don’t want to miss a minute of this powerful and celebratory episode! 


Have you heard of that old saying, KISS? It stands for Keep It Simple Stupid. 

While that saying doesn’t’ sound very nice, it does cut to the heart of what Scott is trying to do with the TAS brand. For too long, Scott saw sellers like you get really excited about the prospect of becoming their own bosses and starting their own businesses only to have their hopes dashed when they saw how complicated it would be. Following his passion to help average people like him, Scott started TAS to take people on a journey as he started a brand selling products on Amazon. Before long, TAS took off and has since produced workshops, meetups, live events, and so much more. Unfortunately, with growth complexity often comes around to tag along. 

Getting down to what really matters

TAS soon went through a growth phase, offering solution after solution by meeting the needs of the growing seller community. While Scott loved helping sellers improve their businesses with the podcast and other tools, what he really enjoyed was getting to know people and helping them up close. While he never thought he would ever host a conference, Scott did just that in 2019 with the Brand Accelerator Live event. Scratching this itch also involved writing a book, “The Take Action Effect” and launching a new program to help brand creators.
