Steve doing good work!

Steve is paying it forward by being a positive example for entrepreneurs and businesspeople alike. Relatable and straight forward, knows his stuff without sounding or acting like a pretentious guru. Great information and insight and seems like a trustworthy friend sharing information over a cup of coffee.

After dabbling with other classes and online “guru’s”, it is obvious that Steve is in a league of his own. You will never stop learning from Steve and his guests. Always up to date with the latest e-commerce info and trends.

I’m new to Steve and My Wife Quit Her Job. I started listening to the Podcasts and a free three-day How to Start an E Commerce business and all I can say is Steve is speaking my language. I’m not interested in get rich quick silliness, Im fired up about following my passions and finding new avenues of income besides my full time job. I signed up for his full class and can’t wait to spend the next few years learning from this master. I feel confident that using his know how, plus my skills, creativity and wildest dreams, I can create a solid base to grow my life around. Thank you Steve for sharing your knowledge and success secrets so the rest of us can follow in your footsteps, achieve our highest potential and find clarity at this awkward time in history.
