Scott is the new kind of baller. He was once a night club promoter who sold selfishness and decadence to people while chasing models and doing drugs. Now, as the founder of charity: water, he has impacted 6.1 million lives and raised $200 million to provide clean drinking water to people in developing nations. His story is colorful. It’s a true testament of how much we can turn our lives around if we ask Why Not Now?
