Scott Piccott is a successful real estate developer who overcame the adversity of severe learning disabilities to become one of Canada’s youngest self-made millionaires.
With funding and support provided by Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Scott enrolled in the business program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in 1999. He received the Rati Shaw Memorial Award in 2001 and 2002 for achievement in overcoming adversity, and graduated with a Diploma in Business Management in 2002.
After graduating, Scott moved to Calgary. Working as a security guard, he read his first book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad at age 24 and was inspired to set a personal goal of owning $1,000,000 in property by age 30. He accomplished the goal in just six months. In a real life version of monopoly, he later traded houses for an apartment building and formed Scott Reid Enterprises, Inc. He subsequently went on to buy many other apartment buildings which he redeveloped into luxury condominiums, and became a self-made millionaire at age 26.
