My good friend Ali Jafarian joins us today to discuss our motivations in work, life, and our families. Join us for a great talk about kids, teaching, growth, coaching, and financial freedom. It’s an inspiring conversation and a relaxing hour that will leave you feeling better about the world!

In Ali’s words:
My truth is that I am nothing, and I am everything. I simply am.
If that’s too deep for you, here’s a bit of detail around where I invest my time:

  • I guide two awesome children named Everest and Sepia.
  • I support my amazing wife, Gabrielle, and look for ways to experience life together.
  • I pursue an active lifestyle that prioritizes exercise, sport and being outdoors.
  • I read, listen, write and podcast to fuel my creativity.
  • I embrace nature and look for ways it can educate me.
  • I eat mostly plants and real food.
  • I love to travel and experience new cultures / adventures.
  • I engage in communities that inspire me and align with my values.
  • I create businesses that support my lifestyle design.

Quickly- I’m Scott Groves – Husband, Father, Loan Officer, Coach, Author, Podcaster, and Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I gave up boxing, where I was 5-0 in amateur fights, when I turned 40. BJJ is safer for old men than getting punched in the head 🙂

Because I think these kind of long form conversations are valuable, I pay for 100% of the production of this show out of my pocket. This channel is FAR from monetization and because of the subject matter, may never be monetized.

I am a Mortgage Loan Officer & Loan Officer Coach in real life. It’s the money that I earn, from helping home-buyers and home-owners obtain home-loans, that pays for this show. If you, your friends, or your family are looking for a home loan from an honest Loan Officer, please contact me at [email protected] or find all my links to connect HERE:

I can do the loan for you (our team is licensed in 8 states) – OR – I can refer you to an amazing loan officer in the state where you’re searching. ON WITH THE SHOW!!!
