About Matthew Ray Scott

I entered the United States Army in 1985 serving in various leadership positions as a combat infantryman, a Special Forces Psychological Warfare specialist, commanding combat medics during Operation Desert Storm in Iraq, and a paratrooper Captain with the legendary 82nd Airborne Division.

In 1994, I made the decision to leave the military hoping I could better integrate my family and career life. At the age of 30 years old, I realized I did not have a process or plan to uncover what career decision I should make next, let alone understand how to uncover my unique purpose or life’s work.

So, I decided to choose a position as a sales and marketing consultant in the biotechnology market after leaving the military and within seven years, I was a Co-Developer and a Vice President, Sales for a biotechnology company in San Diego, California.

In 2004, the biotechnology business unit I co-developed, sold for 16x times earnings. I had surpassed every career and financial goal I set for myself after leaving the military. After this event, I began to ask the questions that would direct my life’s work fulfilling my definition of success and significance. My discoveries led to the formation of The Life’s Work Group, Inc.

I serve as the Founder & Managing Director, The Strategic Incubator, a global consulting firm equipping leaders to align strategic vision with a tactical execution of revenue producing activities in taking a great idea and building a revenue-producing process.

I also am the Managing Partner of The Trunk Club, a company that revolutionizes the way men shop for clothing and define their authentic style.

I completed my Masters Degree in Management in 1991 and completed certification as a Certified Professional Coach sanctioned by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) in 2006.

I reside in Oregon with my wife and three children living with intention next to the ski trails of Mt. Hood and the vineyards of Willamette Valley. I am scheduled to publish my book, men@pause: executive men in transition in early February 2009.

Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard
