In fact, it was quite the opposite. Early on in his career he had some serious business failures. This resulted in him losing homes as well as businesses. He had worked hard, learned what he could, but still things weren't going as they should.
Deep down, Steve knew he was the problem. Others were doing okay - people with less skill and passion. Why was he failing?
These failures ended up being a blessing. Steve spent years searching for the answers to his repeated failures. After each failure he got back up, dusted himself down and carried on trying to learn from his mistakes.
After doing scores of seminars with some of the best in the world on sales, business building and marketing, the outer skills improved dramatically. It did help, but it didnt transform his success totally.
He felt the missing element was within his grasp.
He turned to personal development. Steve looked at everything he could find about the
workings of success and the inner workings of success. He would try it on himself,
to see what worked for real and only then try it with others.
This led to an epiphany whilst on a 2 week retreat in Sedona America in 1999, which he has only recently started sharing with others because as he says "it was such a weird experience that you can͛ t put words to it!"
Negativity was transformed into an incredible sense of peace and aliveness. And it was total. His perspective on business and life changed from then on.
WIth the outer skills in place and now the 'inner skills' taking hold, business became much easier and far more profitable.
A lot of the struggle had gone.
There IS an easier and more profitable way to be successful.
This is what Barefoot Business is about.
After 6 weeks the ecstatic feeling left. But Steven's perception was changed. He now could clearly see what people needed to do, to transform & create the kind of success they want in all aspects of life, including business.
This shift in consciousness is what transformed everything. Steven could now see clearly that mini-shifts like this are what is required to remove the hidden obstacles to success most of us have.
So the next 19 years were spent trying understand how to teach this in a way which is really simple and effective....
To inspire and empower people who really want to change, transform any and all areas of their lives.
