Secret – timesaving technique

Steve picks at most three things to get done each day -- a lesson he learned from Monty Python's John Cleese. ONWARD!

Daily habit that contributes to success

The first step is the hardest -- Steve believes in just getting on with it.

Could have ruined your business – but now – an invaluable learning experience

Steve saw his market evaporate -- and Steve tells the whole story here.

Most critical skill you think business owners need to master to be successful

"Use your listening skills to determine a course of action."

Most influential lesson learned from a mentor

"Don't react -- stop and think before you respond."  

Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”

What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?

I would have had developed systems for all products.

What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?

Work on the business -- not in the business.

How to exceed expectations and add the most value?

An individual would go out of their way to learn about the business.

What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?

  1. Think about what the purpose of the business is
  2. Systems -- work on the business -- not in the business
  3. Put your fears aside and get on with it
