Scott BurrowsScott Burrows was a star athlete and fierce competitor. By the age of 19, he played college football at Florida State University and was a top-ranked kick-boxing Black Belt Champion whose last fight was broadcast on ESPN. On November 3, 1984, however, Scott’s life forever changed when he was involved in a horrendous automobile accident riding as a passenger in his friend’s car. He broke cervical six and seven vertebrae in his neck and suffered a serious spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the chest down, leaving him a quadriplegic. But Scott refused to be sidelined. After graduating from college, he became a top sales producer in the Insurance and Financial Industry and qualified for the Million Dollar Round Table, a 100% commission-driven award that fewer than 8% of his peers, representing 500 companies in 70 countries, qualify for annually. At that conference in 1994, Scott was so inspired by the keynote speakers that he made a tough decision to leave an industry he had so much passion for to pursue a speaking career, a career that has taken him all over the world presenting to Sales Teams.
