What Steve has been up to since his participation in 100 Days to Abundance/Team Nimbus:
Since learning the many areas I have improved in all and have some mastery of a few. It may be cryptic to hear Hedgehog, Woodpiles, D3, Speed of Execution, and the like. Internalizing these concepts, however, is an essential ingredient of any success I have enjoyed.
Recently I had the opportunity to collaborate with 30 leading entrepreneurs around the globe and write a book–Building the Ultimate Network–that was fortunate enough to achieve best seller status. My chapter was about one of the 100 days techniques–specifically, Catalyst Events.
I also write a weekly blog on WordPress which has been a very valuable teaching tool, helping clients catch a concept or sharpen a skill. If intersted, please visit
We are making a significant difference in the financial lives of our clients–as well as the less tangible arenas of leadership, systems development, and relationship building.
Steve’s best advice to other small business owners:
Collaboration is key. Develop and nurture strategic relationships whenever, wherever, and however you can.
