— I love working with Scott Ballard so much that I wrote a haiku for him about some of his greatest strengths on how he helped me. Here we go. Scales joyfully. He draws the best out of you. Keeping you on task. But for real. I have worked with Scott for the greater part of 2023 and he truly has reminded me of what’s most important in my business. He’s made an impact on helping me scale one business while growing the other, and most importantly, he’s helped me realize that joy is always the most important in helping me fulfill that, so, thank you, Scott.
Meeting Scott and Orlena Ballard is a milestone in my professional, personal, and family life. From building a real estate business, to exploring my own dreams and potential, to improving my marriage, Scott’s coaching has been a God-send, literally. Scott draws from successful business development, diverse experience with ultra-high achievers, a humble spirit, and deep faith – to provide a world-class blend of business acumen and supernatural discernment.
As a newcomer in the real estate industry, I already had success but did not understand how to grow or scale. With some practical business expertise and a deep dive into my own thought-life, Scott helped me learn that being a top-performer is not
enough – that my dreams and potential were different or larger. He changes gears between line-in-the-sand fire and brimstone versus gently building up confidence based on God’s promises, faithfulness, and gifts. Now, having been taught his framework, I am comfortable with, and excited about, the challenges of the unknown – focused on the right business questions to ask and knowing Him who has all the solutions I’ll ever need.
It’s difficult to measure the payoff from coaching, which is expensive. Having been mentored by Scott and Orlena for over a year, it’s worth every penny. The learning that has begun will be a lifetime journey and will be foundational to my legacy. Some sessions begin with a structured set of questions; others are more free-flowing and spontaneous, but the result is the same each time – actionable strategy based on deep insight. This coming year has big plans – team building in three additional markets, and I am thankful for Scott’s coaching on that journey.

I want to thank you so much for working with me these past several months. Before starting I felt aimless, or in all honesty hostile towards my workday. Angry at my past and that anger consumed every moment at work. I didn’t really recognize that and kept on trying different sales ideas to beat the mediocrity. I have a lot of experience and knowledge and really tried everything I could think of to boost my sales so I would feel better. Sometimes it would even work but I still didn’t feel any different. Just angry. In talking with you I felt you truly understood me as a person, not just a professional. I had tried working with other professionals in the past with no results, so I was hesitant to start but it was your probing personal questioning and clear care for me as a person that led me to sign up. After working with you the anger is not entirely gone but I recognize it and handle it constructively. I am a much more optimistic person and don’t let my past define me, nor my brain fight against myself.
I’m overdue when it comes to pausing to show some gratitude, so I wanted to take a quick minute to give my longtime business and life coach Scott Ballard a shoutout.
Scott started working with me way back in the day. I’m talking about WAY back. Pretty sure my first question to him, as I was coming off the road as a professional touring musician to officially start my design business, was “do I need a business license?” ha!
First of all, the answer was yes. haha. But man, Scott didn’t even flinch at my ignorance, he simply showed up. And he kept showing up for years. He helped me learn how to work ON my business and not just IN it. He helped me understand that even though I doubt myself every day, that I have strengths, and my own superpowers, that make me uniquely me, and that was invaluable.
He then helped me 10x my design business and gave me foundational tools that continue to serve me to this day as a designer and as Co-Founder of AVVAY.
Just saying, if any of you are on the hunt for that outside brain to help you make sense of your entrepreneurial chaos. Or you just need a little fuel to keep pushing forward. Shoot Scott a message.
Thanks for all you’ve done for me, Scott!
“Having worked with Scott to change my own perception of myself, I found him to be a real block shifter. Some of the questions really pushed me to think differently. I would say Scott motivated me into action and gave me a confidence I really needed. I would highly recommend Scott.”

Through a mutual acquaintance I connected with Scott Ballard the Author/Speaker and Confidence Coach.
I am a Qualified accredited Life Coach myself.
Having been very successful in the past in Business/Sport and my Personal Life.
I was struggling with my identity in the last 12/13 years especially. I have experienced pain and huge loss both professionally and personally, as well as health issues. I have struggled to move forward in any meaningful way.
My sessions with Scott have been – Powerful & Hugely Transformative.
We did some really DEEP WORK together.
Scott managed to get me to look deep within myself to find answers to the very powerful questions he asked. To be honest it was very uncomfortable and hurt a great deal to go so deep to that place……..
We never go there as human beings. It takes great skill to get any individual to strip back the layers we have built up as protection over the years. Scott was patient with me, yet with the PRECISION of an expert surgeon, was able to get me to get to the roots of my own being.
Together we have created great TRANSFORMATION for me in my Life.
I can now see clearly where and why I have been stuck and with that comes a plan to grow and progress and move forward.
In my storey – I SHALL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL for meeting Scott Ballard as I continue on my Path.
I have known Scott Ballard for a decade and have worked with him in the past five years now with Confidence Coach. Scott believes in you and admonishes you to achieve your dreams. Five years ago I was going through a riveting life change. In our first meeting I told Scott, “My dream has always been to be a College Basketball Coach.” Last year I accepted an offer to become a College Basketball Coach.
Two things stand out to me about the coaching I received from Scott. First, he asks me challenging and probing questions. These are questions that I don’t think about during my own personal reflection. Second, he doesn’t allow me to make excuses and feel sorry for my situation. He prods me to see myself as better than what others may say. I would highly recommend Scott as your Confidence Coach to guide you towards your dreams and goals.
I started working with Scott when I decided to launch a new business. His insights were critical to develop a successful business plan and provide me the confidence to move forward. In the first 3 months, the company was generating positive cash flow and within 18 months, my business 40 Strategy Inc., has exceeded my expectations and I credit much of that success with the foundation that Scott set.
