Scott Kaplan is all-in on whatever he does because “failure is not an option.”

Shawn Walchef has been a fan of Scott Kaplan for a long time.
He says, ‘I don’t listen to music in the car.’ I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ He says, ‘I listen to sports radio.’”
“(Jim) Rome, Kaplan, that’s it. I was like, ‘I love sports. Why am I not listening to sports talk radio?’ That was an Oh Shit moment for me.”
“I never thought that as a barbecue restaurant owner (https://calibbq.media/) I would be here and consider Scott Kaplan as much of a friend as I do consider him.”
That’s how Digital Hospitality works, good things don’t just happen. You make them happen.
Scott Kaplan credits Shawn Walchef as one of the main forces that propelled him into podcasting.
“You have to be wiling to pivot,” Shawn Walchef said.
“You have to be in constant motion, one foot in front of the other,” said Scott Kaplan. “Failure is not an option… it’s just the way I’m wired. I can’t stop.”
