There are some people you come across that have an innate ability to get you fired up. Just a few minutes of talking with inspirational speaker Scott Burrows over the phone recently, had that affect on me.
I almost decided to chuck the whole journalism thing and start selling products. Okay, that might be an exaggeration. I couldn’t sell umbrellas in London, but Scott does inspire. Who knows, he might have unearthed my latest attempt at the Great American Novel. He has that way about him.
Scott’s story is a novel in its own right. He played for legendary football coach Bobby Bowden at Florida State and was a ranked kick boxer, having sparred on an ESPN broadcast.
