I froze. Live on television. The sweat welled up my back, and in my ears, making the voice coming from my plastic earpiece crackle. “Scott … What do you have to say to the caller?” Thankfully this moment happened at the start of my career. And thankfully it happened on...

I’m not proud of what I did this week. I used my position in the media to blackmail a man. (And it worked.) What follows is the true story of how I made a single mother $17,000 in 24 hours. Let’s begin … Pop! That’s the sound my brain made...

Three years ago today.

While we lost animals in horrific circumstances, and lost personal treasures we'll never be able to replace -- I gained the inspiration to write a book that will keep families financially fireproof. That book is (still) the #1 bestselling book across the country. Thank-you.

About four years ago, my wife entered our living room waving a pregnancy stick above her head like she was Mitchell Johnson triumphantly screaming HOWZAT! at the umpire. “We’re pregnant!” she cheered. I was like a defiant Indian batsman disputing the inside edge. “Give me a look.” We both stared...
