Here Is What Some Have Said About My First Two Books…


I’m also the author of two e-books called How Your Business Can Survive And Prosper In A Recession in which I interviewed 38 top business, marketing and sales experts and got them to reveal their methods to help business owners survive and prosper in a recession.

Below are two testimonials about these books…

“Scott Aughtmon has compiled just the right advice for just the right people and at just the right time. Surviving and prospering during a recession will never be a piece of cake. But it will be a whole lot easier if you’ve read the wise counsel in Scott’s book.  I recommend it to the skies, recession or no recession.
Jay Conrad Levinson
Best-selling author, “Guerrilla Marketing” series of books


When times are tough, there is no ‘one’ answer.  ‘Succeed and Prosper in a Recession’ provides many answers and it provides them through the insights of America’s marketing masters. If you can’t get the answers from this e-manual, you haven’t figured out the question, much less the problem. This book is a winner that will help you win.”
Jeffrey Gitomer
Chief Executive Salesman and author of The New York Times best sellers The Sales Bible, The Little Red Book of Selling, and others

Are you looking for someone to write a blog post for your blog?

If your blog has a big enough audience that I want to get in front of, then I might write the first post for free. 

Otherwise, I will charge a fee to write a blog post.
(I put a lot of time in writing you a high quality blog post that you and your audience will like and share, so I cannot/will not write for the “bargain basement” prices. Sorry.)

Here Is What One Business Executive Said About My 1-Hour Free Business Coaching…

I first heard Scott Aughtmon on a local radio station interview. I was intrigued by his comments on surviving and prospering in a recession and decided to buy his books.

The books were outstanding but the extra special benefit I did not expect was an hour phone consultation with Scott. After providing Scott with answers to questions he asked about my business, I took full advantage of the hour call and included several of my Regional Directors. The hour flew by and Scott had great suggestions and insight to our business. We have implemented several of his recommendations and we have seen improvement.

Scott is wealth of practical, modern knowledge and marketing knowhow and I highly recommend his services.

Executive Vice President of Operations, Primrose Schools Franchising Company
