About The Book


Scott Montgomery was not set up for success. Growing up with little structure and having a reputation as a troublemaker in his teens, the prospects of his moving ahead were limited. His life began to shift when he started working at a local grocery store at sixteen. As he developed new habits and skills, guided by managers and mentors who recognized his potential, he built an unconventional path to significant corporate opportunities.

So how has Scott ended up leading Worldgate LLC, a thriving management consulting firm, and coaching other leaders and entrepreneurs on their paths to success?

In his book “How Did You Get Here?”, Scott shares what he learned through stories of his life and career, how he nurtured a mindset that has allowed him to transform his life and become the successful business leader he is today. Montgomery doesn't hold back, offering truthful anecdotes and inspiring insights into what it takes to be a successful leader.
  • How important it is to form and maintain your relationships – personal and professional
  • How habits, routines, self-care and goal-setting enable peak performance
  • How leadership coaching has benefited his career, and how it can benefit yours
  • How the formation, history, and culture of Worldgate LLC influences his success
  • How applying the lessons learned has made him a better partner, husband, and father

Scott’s definition of success truly focuses on happiness and satisfaction. As he, and his wife Katelyn, are partnered in life and in business, he speaks from experience sharing how to balance running a business, building a family, and achieving outstanding financial, personal, and professional success. His leadership focuses on developing engagement, growth and fostering a learner’s mindset. He is proud to lead an amazing team and is committed to the wellbeing of his clients, Worldgate’s employees and giving back to his community.
