Have you ever considered just packing up and moving abroad to another country? What’s holding you back? Nothing was holding Scott Allan back when he decided to take off to Japan 20 years ago. Today we talk about his journey with a few of the kick in the gut moments and pivot points that has made him the abundant man he is today.
Scott Allan writes books that focus on changing old routines, behaviors and overcoming all levels of self-defeating behavior. He believes that successful living is a series of small actions taken consistently on a daily basis in order to build a quality-rich lifestyle.
Scott resides in western Japan where he spends most of his time traveling, writing and counting the many gratitudes of life. He is the author of Empower Your Thoughts, Rejection Reset and several other bestselling books. With a deep passion for teaching, building life skills, and inspiring others to take charge of their lives, he is committed to a path of constant and never-ending self improvement.
