At the age of 22, Stephen Scoggins launched a multi-million dollar construction company while sleeping in a friend’s car. Through his hopes and prayers, success began to evolve and he felt as if he was given a second-chance opportunity to construct his life. From that point, Stephen has continued to pay it forward through his creation of The Journey Principles Institute which is an organization dedicated to helping others go from stuck to unstoppable in the areas of life and business. With respect to his endeavor, Stephen became the best-selling author of The Journey Principles with recognition from media outlets including NBC, CBS, Entrepreneur, Thrive Global, Grit Daily, and more.
From sleeping in a car to constructing multimillion-dollar businesses, Stephen Scoggins is a spokesperson to individuals seeking entry to the entrepreneurial world. “What I would like to be known for is how many lives I can help to create positive changes within their lives. My heart is to create a legacy that outlives my existence by changing the lives of others for the better.” Stephen has incorporated his philanthropic beliefs into his work to empower those around him to look beyond themselves.
Stephen is a best-selling author, award-winning entrepreneur of multiple businesses with multi-8-figure revenues, a motivational speaker, and the creator of the proprietary Life-Mastery Framework affectionately named, “Transform U.” Stephen continues to challenge and uplift people to break down the obstacles setting them back to reach their version of success. Stephen has taken over three decades of failures, errors, and setbacks and transparently incorporates those experiences to provide simple-yet-effective step-by-step lessons to help others reclaim their hope and proceed with their dreams.
Stephen attributes the success he has gained over the course of his career to his mentor that he believes saved his life with the pieces of his mentor’s advice. Stephen’s mentor had posed a question and said, “What is the difference between a rich and a poor man? It is the way they think. A poor man spends all he has and a rich man always invests for a brighter future. That comes in time, talent, and resources.” This piece of advice has guided him through the different avenues of business Stephen Scoggins has ventured into throughout the entrepreneurial field.
