Coaching Clients

“Scott is a gifted leader and insightful coach. When he speaks, you listen. He is adept at moderating groups and knows exactly which questions to ask those of us who might hold back in group settings. His follow-up with connections, students, and group members is second to none. He holds you accountable to your goals and always pushes you to dig deeper, listen to your inner guide and pursue your dreams.” Mindi Rosser, B2B Social Business Strategist & Programs Manager

“I met Scott Perry on my journey toward retirement. With his wisdom and guidance, I realized that creativity is not restricted to youth; that I can not control aging but I can control how I view it; and that the obstacles in my life can actually become my path to being truly human and truly happy.” Wes McCune, Concert Pianist

“Scott is the man you hope George Clooney might be. He is a natural leader and coach, with that rare skill of being able to build strong teams, where everyone has a voice. I learned so much from the way Scott engages with others and focuses the team. He's a friend and a role model.” Oliver Haydon, Architect

“The Stoic principles, concepts and practices that Scott shares are applicable to every life endeavour. I'm very grateful for the generous, inspiring, empathic, compassionate, warm (and of course Stoic), way he introduces, engages and extends us through a diverse range of interviews and articles. I’ve only savoured brief video glimpses of him performing, but clearly he delivers the same warmth, competence and humanity into his music as he does sharing the rich wisdoms of Stoicism. Scott...Heart and soul-felt thanks from the wildest parts of Australia, for who you are, what you do and how you are in the world....y.” Stuart Porteous, Project for Public Spaces

"Scott's approach is the fusion of principle and purpose. When you are ready to step out of frustrated creativity into flourishing artistry, Scott is there for you." Chris Tygesen, Accountant

Online Students & Site Members

“The modern stoic revival has cognitive therapists, philosophy professors, soldiers and even ex-marketing executives telling us how this ancient wisdom can help us endure and renounce, adapt and overcome.  Scott is the only modern Stoic who explores the benefits of stoicism for artists and creatives.

I'm very grateful for the generous, inspiring, empathic, compassionate, warm (and of course Stoic), way he introduces, engages and extends us through a diverse range of interviews and articles. I’ve only savoured brief video glimpses of him performing, but clearly he delivers the same warmth, competence and humanity into his music as he does sharing the rich wisdoms of Stoicism. Scott...Heart and soul-felt thanks from the wildest parts of Australia, for who you are, what you do and how you are in the world....” Stuart Porteous, Project for Public Spaces

Meet the Modern Stoics Guests

“Scott Perry is doing a great service to Stoicism and the online community through his work, which is helping to spread awareness of Stoic philosophy.  I hope more and more people tune into his live videos and we continue to see more interviews with Stoicism authors because this is a great way to learn about the subject.” Donald Robertson, Author of Stoicism and the Art of Happiness & Modern Stoicism Team Member

“Scott Perry's Meet the Modern Stoics broadcast provides a great resource applying classic Stoic philosophy to problems, challenges, and opportunities creative people experience.  As a host, he's a great conversationalist. I not only enjoyed coming on the show, but listen to it regularly!” Greg Sadler, Editor of Stoicism Today & Modern Stoicism Team Member

“Stoicism is on the rise, and Scott's Meet the Modern Stoics is an excellent way to get to know the people who are shaping the modern Stoic movement.” Massimo Pigliucci, Professor of Philosophy, Author of How to Be a Stoic, & Modern Stoicism Board Member

“Being interviewed on the Stoic Guitarist’s Meet the Modern Stoics broadcast was a very positive experience. Scott raised interesting and important questions and responded thoughtfully to the answers. This is an excellent series for making Stoic ideas more widely known.” Chris Gill, Emeritus Professor of Ancient Thought at Exeter University & Modern Stoicism Team Member

"I usually prefer to do interviews in writing, thinking I can pack more into them that way. But the experience with Scott was a pleasant, productive, and intellectually challenging conversation. My preference for interviews in writing may have been changed permanently!" Lawrence Becker, Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at the College of William & Mary & author of A New Stoicism

"This is an excellent and unique forum in which Stoic academics and laypersons interested in the topic can meet, interact, and mutually enrich their experience of the contemporary Stoic resurgence. Well done, Scott Perry!" William Ferraiolo, Professor of Philosophy at San Joaquin Delta College

“Scott Perry plays a powerful role through his informative and absorbing podcasts, and in other ways, and contributes much to many. His insights, knowledge and marvelous ability to engage interviewees through his precise questions and easy conversational manner provide viewers and listeners with a depth and breadth of knowledge. The information that is shared by him and his guests can refresh, inspire, revitalize, add to and enhance their awareness about the choices we can make for creating happier and healthier lives. It was a joy to be interviewed by Scott, and enriching to learn from watching the other interviews he has done with others.” Dr. Debbie Joffe Ellis, REBT Psychologist (Australia) and adjunct professor at Columbia University
