Born to be a creator

Today's interview is with Stephen Scott.

Tell us about yourself

I was born into a family of creatives — my mom was a professional photographer and my dad was a journalist.

I've had many rich life experiences including, living as a Jesuit for 7 years, being the CEO of a men's organization focused on leadership and growth, working in a variety of schools, and teaching a variety of topics including, photography, meditation, and spirituality. I've been married for almost 25 years and have three teenagers.

What content do you produce?

At the core, my mission is to help others live a meaningful life. In whatever I do, I seek to weave in creativity, compassion, and joy.

For now, I've decided to focus on Twitter. I write and produce audio and video content. I host Twitter spaces. I have a website and a newsletter, but current focus is learning how to use Twitter.

How have you grown your audience?

My goal is to create meaningful content on a daily basis. I want to inspire others to live a beautiful life. I'm building a network of friends, creators, and people with a growth mindset. I do this through active engagement and presence. I seek to give as much value to others as I can in every encounter.

How have you monetised (or plan to)?

Although I taught my first online class in 2003, Photography and the Art of Seeing, I haven't focused on monetization. I've had a service mindset. I'm working on growing the idea that I can both be of service to others and receive compensation from others.

Where can people find you?

The best place to find me is on Twitter!
