I truly believe the purpose of life is to enjoy it. I'm lucky as hell. Good things drop in my lap, and bad things work themselves out. I wrote a book about how I got so lucky.
Skyler Jackson Reep was born in Butte, Montana, on August 2, 1983, to Paul John Reep and Elizabeth Jo Ann Eloe-Reep. He lived briefly in Butte and then in Bloomington, Illinois, but he spent the majority of his youth in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He has one brother, Joel (born May 7, 1987). From a young age, Reep exhibited talent in drawing and painting, which he initially intended to study at Whitworth College (now Whitworth University) in Spokane, Washington. Bored by the tedium of art classes, he changed his focus and earned a B.A. in international business in 2005.
Immediately after graduation from Whitworth, Reep moved to the ski resort town of Jackson, Wyoming, for an auditing job in a small hotel there. His personality and his education in business made hospitality a natural fit, and he continues to work in hospitality.
In 2007, Reep formed PEER Enterprises, LLC, to pursue his entrepreneurial interests.
In 2008, PEER Enterprises formed a publishing subsidiary for the publication of his first book.
In 2009, Reep's son, Jackson, was born. Luck-Struck is dedicated to him.

Skyler is a Mensan and has received multiple writing awards. After winning academic awards for his essay "To Hell and Back," in which he recounts his story of a violent sports injury, Reep began to work actively on his writing technique and voice. Beginning with creative fiction and poetry, Reep soon found his passion to be in non-fiction, and especially self-improvement.
Reep is a rabid self-promoter, and he actively manages profiles on social networking sites. The ubiquitousness of Reep's face caused some Facebook users to create a group, named "Who the @$#%^&* is Skyler Reep?!"
