We have all heard the phrase, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” Sometimes as business owners, we pour ourselves into our business and try to give what we can for our families, and this might leave nothing left for ourselves. Today’s guest emphasizes the importance of being a “self-care savage” and going down the path of becoming mentally independent by doing the critical mindset work.

Scott Tatum is the founder of @UcanOutdoors, and he delivers daily “Friendly Reminders” via Instagram and TikTok where he has over 1 million followers combined, and over 6 million views on his quick and inspiring videos. From his Friendly Reminders, Scott reminds us that self-care and taking accountability for your own self-growth are vital to well-being and healing. Scott is a Nomad/Hiker/Explorer/Outdoor enthusiast advocating for Self Care, Mental Health, and our Public Lands. Scott utilizes the outdoors for his own form of therapy to heal the mind, body, and soul, which inspired him to spread his message to others. 

In this episode, Scott shares his story of being stuck in a cycle of self-sabotage and feeling like he was close to giving up hope in life. Through getting in touch with nature, he connected with himself and believes nature is the antidote for healing. Sometimes changing our surroundings can be such a powerful tool that aids in helping us connect to who we truly are, and undoing the beliefs that have been ingrained in us since childhood. Tune in for a powerful episode!
