Scotty Alpaugh pulls up a chair this week. Scotty works at one of the world’s largest wealth management companies, he served in the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division before being injured in combat in Baghdad, and he is a cancer survivor. He’s also the author of the book “Have no fear, there’s always F-ing next year: (a COVID-19 tale)”. In part one, Scotty talks about the conversation with his father that changed his outlook on life, his experience of serving the country after 9/11, and how he’s used humor to combat adversity.
