Scott D. McKenzie aka Great Scott’s “The Online Diaries of Folklore“, exposes the true power of believing in oneself. He recaps his life from being a “fly on the wall” as a child in The Booga Basement studio with The Fugees, to a young adult skipping college to go on and work for companies like XXL, VIBE, and BBC Ice Cream, to starting his own business at the age of 24. The book has a down to earth presence that is relatable to young and old people everywhere. Not just a story about how he’s accomplished all this at such a young age, he also provides genuine instructions on how readers can get on the path to success as well. A fairly short and easy read that will leave you with BIG and long-lasting inspiration. Now at the ripe age of 25, a mogul, consigliere, & published author…it seems he’s done it all… but this is just the beginning for him. Meet Great Scott…

Being with Kanye, Beyonce… & sitting at the dinner table with some of the people I admire. Those moments rock. & Meeting Russell Simmons on my 24th Birthday!
In your book, you talk about NOT going to college. What is your take on higher education? To each their own. I don’t respect what this country has turned education into. It’s a business. They don’t care whether you win or lose. “Just give me $100,000 & be in debt for the rest of your life.” It’s just as bad as credit cards. It’s a scam, to me. My opinion… Not a fact.

Last, but not least… Why do you think people should go get a copy of your book? Because it helps with self improvement & finding better knowledge of self which people lack.
