Scott Amyx is the Chair & Managing Partner at Amyx Ventures, a venture capital firm, and an author. He grew up in South Korea without a father and in deep poverty.
After he immigrated to the United States, he was placed in foster care and moved from home to home. He has created an incredibly successful life for himself through doing what makes him uncomfortable, a condition that he calls “strive.”
In his recently released book, Strive, he argues that the secret to success is doing the things that make you uncomfortable. His book has been endorsed with great enthusiasm by Tony Robbins, Tribeca Film Festival, Forbes, Singularity University and other global influencers.
Scott has been featured on TIME, Forbes, New York Times, TechCrunch, Washington Post, Wired, and other major media outlets. He is also a TEDx speaker on disruption and success.
In the episode, Scott shares his personal journey from deep poverty to globe-trotting success as well as the failures he encountered along the way. You’ll learn the strategies that Scott uses to achieve success through discomfort and other non-traditional means.
