    Scott Fay is one of the best teachers I've had the pleasure to sit under. When he's teaching I write pages of wonderful takeaways, and walk away knowing I have grown internally. So, naturally I'm thrilled he has written this book which is chock-full of life changing nuggets. This is a must read!

    This is a wonderful book if you are trying to discover your “Why?’.  It will give you a step by step way to find a purpose for your life that you can be passionate about but more importantly Scott guides you to create the plan so that you can truly find your SWEET SPOT.  But one of the important things is that Scott will guide you through the roadblock that will come up.  It is great read and practical advice that can help anyone who wants to grow.

    I have read a lot of books written to teach self development, discovering and accomplishing your life’s purpose, but I have never related to the message as much as I have Discover Your Sweet Spot. I was amazed at how deep the insight, experience and material was, but even more than that I was able to relate to the stories and the author.

    I enjoyed learning how Scott was able to chronicle his journey and development into a well documented and inspiring book that really inspires me and gives me a sense that I can do it too. I know I will re-read and share the valuable lessons and insights I have gained from this book. I sincerely recommend reading this book and passing a copy along to someone you care about so they can also benefit.

    Easy to read & inspirational!

    If you've lost your way in life or are just unsure of where to go next, read this book. It's a practical & easy to read book that'll help restart the fire in your gut. My only regret is that I didn't read this 15 years ago back when I was a senior in high school!

    DOES DIESEL FUEL AND DIRT REFLECT YOUR SWEET SPOT? Probably not

    DOES DIESEL FUEL AND DIRT REFLECT YOUR SWEET SPOT?

    Probably not! However it does for Scott Fay because it reflects his down to earth attitude and the lessons he has learned in building multiple businesses. His personal growth journey will definitely help you as he shares both his wins and losses (learning opportunities). Most importantly, his simple stories and illustrations will stick with you so it will be easy to remember the important concepts he shares with you.

    When Purpose (what you are meant to do) intersects with your Passion (that for which you are willing to sacrifice, what excites you) and has a definitive Plan to bring it about, YOU WILL SUCCEED! And you will have found your Sweet Spot!

    Scott Fay is a highly successful landscaper, entrepreneur, coach and down to earth philosopher. His genius lies not in the process he sets before you (though it is brilliant), but in the questions he asks of you. And some of those questions, though seemingly simple, are extremely deep. DON'T OVERLOOK THEM OR GIVE THEM A CASUAL GLANCE! They can pull you back from the brink.

    Many fail to succeed because they've never fully committed, don't understand why they do what they do, or have a plan that is too complicated. The beauty of Discover Your Sweet Spot is that it is simple while thorough. Who knows, in the end you just might appreciate diesel fuel and dirt. After studying this book, I know I do.

    Simple - Practical - Genuine.

    I highly recommend Scott M. Fay’s book Discover Your Sweet Spot. Three words best describe this book: Simple, Practical, Genuine. Scott weaves his personal story and his professional experience into the process of creating a life of significance.

    The lessons are lessons from real life. The steps are actionable. The stories are raw and motivating. If you are looking to discover your sense of purpose in life than this is one book you want to get. Scott lives these truths day in and day out and they are the principles his business is built upon.

    Discover Your Sweet Spot … Simple … Practical … Genuine.

    "If we're casual, we'll just experience casualties." T

    "If we're casual, we'll just experience casualties." That line hit me upside the head like a 2 X 4, but in a good way. This book helped me to see where I was settling for less than I deserve and it outlined a 7 step process to help me create and re-create a better plan for a more optimal, authentic life.

    The conversational tone of the book and the author's stories and analogies make it an easy read with a lot of heart. This is the book I am giving to my friends and colleagues to read this year. Highly recommend it as a graduation gift!

    This book is highly practical and empowers the reader to take positive steps toward working within his/her passion and purpose. Scotts easy going style makes this book a pleasure to read as you learn how his experiences have taught him the very concepts and action steps that he places before you. The steps in this book can easily be applied both in our personal lives, and in organizations that we are part of. I highly recommend this book.

    Scott Fay has been a mentor of mine for years. Now to see his teaching come together into a very simple to read and apply book has been great. For me the best section is the mid-course corrections. I find that so many people get hooked and committed to a plan and even though the plan is not working, they are not willing to make a change. This section outlines very simply how make this mid-course corrections. 

    This really had me reflect and take a deep look at how I react during those situations that do deviate from the plan…and some of it was not very comfortable. However, taking the look and evaluating, now gives me the ability to change.

    Thanks Scott

    This may be one of the most impactful books I have read. Scott takes the seemingly overwhelming concept of defining your life's purpose and passion, and creating a plan to live them, and simplifies that concept with logical and easily understandable analogies to every day life. I was fortunate to receive an advance copy, and although I have already gone through it three times, many more times are to come as each time through reveals something new to me.

    "SPOILER ALERT" By reading this book and applying the simple messages contained within, your life will get better.....Scott Fay has written a book that is easy to read, easy to comprehend founded on personal experience of a life in leadership. I loved the personal feel to the book and the lessons contained within are ignited by the touch and emotion of the story. A home town feel, but one that resonated with me at a level that made it simple to put into place in my way. Thanks Scott for sharing... your words of wisdom, they have created an impact already within my life and i look forward to more.-Tony Curl

    You Had Me at Grape Bubble Gum. Darren Hardy says it well: &quo

    You Had Me at Grape Bubble Gum.

    Darren Hardy says it well: "I only read and endorse books by people who are the living proof of their message." There are people who write books because they've read books, and there are people who write books because they've worked, pushed, and forged a path to success that others want to learn. Scott Fay is the latter. When he says you can apply his principles to build a successful business, it is because he has done it. When he says you can find your sweet spot and live a life of fulfilling purpose, it is because he is doing it. In his stories and illustrations, you can see and feel and taste the elements of his success in such a tangible way that you begin to sense your own ability to succeed as well. You experience this from the very first sentence, "Grape bubble gum changed my life." And as he relates the story of going from being a highly successful business owner to pulling weeds with tears trailing through the dust on his face, you may be wiping tears from your own eyes as well. You cheer as he comes back to be CEO of that very business. And you learn very vividly the importance of staying in your sweet spot. It is real, relatable, and provides solid principles and methods on which to build a successful business and fulfilling life.
