Stephen Scoggins has been referred to as an empowering communicator who educates audiences on how to heal from their past, grow where they are planted, then goes out to help others do the same.
Coming from a broken home led him into a life full of failures and disappointments. With minimal income coming in for his family, he was forced to drop out of high school and go to work -- just to keep the electricity turned on. Roaches and Ramen noodles were Stephen's family's normal R & R time.
After training for a year for the U. S. military only to be rejected by circumstances never foreseen, he hit bottom. Taking off his shoes, climbing over the railing of an overpass, he attempted to do a nosedive into oncoming rush hour traffic. But at the last moment, he made a phone call to someone who spoke 11 words to him that changed his life forever.
As a homeless man, dumpster diving for food, Stephen birthed a business, Custom Home Interiors, which is now a multi-million dollar company, located in multiple states employing over 400 team members.
