Hi there! I’m Scott Rose, and I live in Austin, Texas. I’m a motivational speaker, transformational coach, and inspirational storyteller.
I encourage people to live their best lives by helping them to think independently (often contrary to mainstream advice), and by guiding them on how to make magical transformations happen in their lives on a daily basis.
My business began with public speaking for Apple. I was professionally trained in the art of masterful public speaking by Steve Jobs and the marketing team at Apple. I traveled around the country for 6 years with Apple’s executives as one of the top public speakers at all of their major events. I also helped Apple open up their first 21 retail stores by speaking at all of their grand openings.
As other public speakers reached out to me for guidance — and as my passion & enthusiasm grew into different realms that could help transform people’s lives — I expanded my business into coaching as a way to help my clients with personalized one-on-one support.
My coaching programs have been exceptional successes, with 100% of my coaching clients stating that they have fully achieved the goals that they set out to accomplish when they started working with me. All of my coaching techniques are based on the methods that I have successfully used for myself in my own life to achieve my own personal successes.
I now give motivational & inspirational talks on a variety of different topics at several major events every year, and I coach other public speakers (such as TEDx speakers) on how to give their own incredible, memorable speeches. I also coach individuals from all walks of life on how to make healthy lifestyle changes based on the keto lifestyle & intermittent fasting.
Some random trivia about me.
I regularly perform the art of narrative improvisation onstage at The Hideout Theatre in Austin, which is where improvisers such as myself perform fully-improvised, full-length, narrative plays to the audience. In my opinion, improvisation is one of the greatest life skills that I have personally learned — I feel that improv helps keep me present in the current moment (similar to the practice of Buddhism & meditation), and I feel that improv has tremendously fine-tuned my public speaking skills & working with large audiences. My most recent improvised play, Small Town Girl, was performed to fully sold-out audiences in February & March of 2019.
For over 30 years (since the age of 13), I have run my own computer programming business named ScottWorld. I am considered one of the top computer programmers in the entire country when it comes to FileMaker & Airtable databases. If you know any businesses who could benefit from the best FileMaker programmers, best Airtable consultants, and the best Airtable programmers in the entire country, jump on over to my other website, where people can find their own FileMaker Pro experts and Airtable experts.
I’m a member of MENSA International, the high IQ society.
I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, I moved to Los Angeles to attend UCLA, and after 22 years of living in Los Angeles, I moved to Austin. (I also briefly lived in New York City — in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood.)
I appeared on 7 different game shows when I lived in Los Angeles, and I won almost $50,000 in cash & prizes. Some of my game show videos are available to watch online.
My mom, Esther Glickstein Rose, named the Big Mac for McDonald's in 1967.
I worked closely with Richard Kline (of “Three’s Company” fame), who directed my one-man comedy stage show Computer Geek: One Nerd’s Search For His Soulmate that briefly toured around the country, and I also presented my show to Comedy Central executives for possible consideration in a future comedy TV series.
