8 days ago my friend Scott, founder of Live Your Legend, died while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
He was 33 years old.
And even though we had only met in person three times, his impact on my life was incredible.
When I found out about his death, I was shocked.
And while I those feelings are still bubbling inside of me – and probably will be for a long time – I’ve come to realize that the best way I can honor Scott is by helping to spread his incredible message to people who may not have heard it before.
Scott was truly one of the most inspiring, energetic, and enthusiastic people I know, and I recorded this podcast to help others who may be grieving from the loss of a loved one and also to inspire people by discussing the 4 biggest lessons I’ve learned from Scott over the years.
We only get one chance at life, so we better start living our legend.

Yes, indeed. We lost a very close friend 2 months ago – mountain biking accident. Was so hard to be there through the entire process, but if there was a silver lining – is he was living an extraordinary life – 2 amazing kids, doctor donating his time in 3rd world countries, and being out on the trail whenever he could. Just so hard to be on the other side, but a reminder that we’ve got this one life in this body and we need to live it to the fullest.
@Janet- Yeah, that is amazing, and that is the silver lining. It’s sad to see someone pass when they are living such a full, wonderful life…but it’s also a reminder to do the same. Sorry to hear about your loss, but glad it can be an inspiration.
Thank you for sharing Travis. I didn’t have the direct communication with Scott, but followed him and read his blogs, etc. His TED Talk ignited me, and has brought about change in my life. I had been following their trip was was looking forward to hearing how the hike was. I could go on and on.
I also follow you as I am aligned with you on what I am working on for my family and business. The day I heard about Scott passing, you actually came to mind quite quickly – as I knew you helped him book the tickets for their trip.
Have been thinking of you and wondering how you were processing this while being in Africa.
Thank you for posting this and sharing.
@Janet- Really appreciate you letting me know how this affected you. It’s certainly been tough, but way less tough for me than it is for his family and of course, his wife Chelsea. I can’t imagine what they are going through. The silver lining is that he passed doing exactly what he taught others to do – and he touched so many people. 33 years filled with life!
