S2 / EP17: SCOT CHRISMAN

Scot Chrisman grew up with the dream of a pro skier and it never happened.  He was close as a racer, then competed for a few years and nothing really materialized.  Along the way there was drugs, alcohol, legal issues but things worked themselves out and today, Scot is an aspiring entrepreneur with his hands in just about everything.  He’s of interest to me for one reason in particular, he has a podcast that went from zero to number 1 on itunes and I wanted to find out who he is and how he did it.
