The “Spark in Our Lives” series of The Arner Adventures Podcast is where we invite people who have lit a spark in us, in one way or another, who have inspired us, who have cultivated the life that they desire. This guest has not only lit a spark in our lives, but she has ignited flames! This week, our guest made dreams come true by agreeing to speak with us. Seriously. Scout Sobel is our guest this week and we are elated.
Let us tell you about Scout Sobel:
Scout Sobel is the founder of Scout’s Agency, co-host of the popular Okay Sis Podcast, host of The Emotional Entrepreneur podcast, and the bestselling author of The Emotional Entrepreneur. She is a trailblazer in the media industry for utilizing podcasts as a powerful form of PR. After starting Okay Sis, which focuses on female guests, Scout fell in love with spreading women’s stories and identified the rising popularity and influence of podcasting. She started Scout’s Agency with an emphasis in podcast PR for women entrepreneurs, podcasters, and brands.
In 2.5 years, Scout’s Agency has become the leading agency for getting women as guests on podcasts. Scout has also lived with bipolar disorder for the last 15 years. She was once unable to function in society but after finding entrepreneurship and taking radical responsibility over her emotions, she is now able to live a life of purpose. Her debut book The Emotional Entrepreneur provides the mindset and emotional tools she learned from managing her mental illness that have helped her succeed in business. The Emotional Entrepreneur hit #11 on Amazon for Women in Business and the Top 100 Charts for Entrepreneurship. Her book is a staple in my (Shannon) life, and I carry it with me everywhere.
