Evan is the inventor of Scorch Marker, a wood-burning solution that quickly grew into a crafting company. After learning from other great entrepreneurs, Evan quickly realized that he would never forgive himself if he didn’t shoot his shot as a full-time inventor and entrepreneur. So, he quit his career as a firefighter and paramedic to run his businesses full time with his wife and partner. Fast-forward to today, and now Evan and his wife own multiple companies and patents that generate millions in revenue each year. He continues to build his businesses while documenting what he learns on social media. You gotta shoot your shot because it can change your life.
