Entrepreneur Spotlight: Steve Anderson The Smart Connector

    • Management

Technology and Risk expert Steve Anderson is author of The Bezos Letters, a book that examines the 14 Growth Principles contained within the annual letters that the Founder of Amazon Jeff Bezos has written to his shareholders for the past 20 years.The book offers a fascinating insight into how Bezos turned an online bookstore into a trillion dollar company in just over two decades.






Amazon is the fastest company ever to reach $100 billion in sales and they didn't reach that landmark by staying in their comfort zone. Risk taking is the key that unlocked the door to growth at Amazon, but those risks were (and are) intentional, calculated, and strategic. As Thomas Edison said, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." and Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezos, has always linked experimentation and failure with growth and success. Now, as a result of Steve's book, business owners, leaders, CEOs, employees, and managers can apply these same principles to grow their own businesses and become more efficient, productive, and successful.

He is on the faculty of credentialing organisations teaching thousands of professionals annually and is a writer/contributor to multiple publications. Steve has a Master’s Degree in Insurance Law, and was personally invited to be an original LinkedIn thought leader/influencer where he now has over 340,000 followers. He also is a Top 20 Global InsurTech Influencer.
