About The Author
“The key thing about a book is that you lose yourself in the author's world.” – Jeff Bezos
Hey, I’m Steve! I hope you can lose yourself in my world a little, while keeping an eye on the world you want to create for yourself. I spent my time in corporate America, and I never felt like I was contributing much to the world. Now, I can make a significant impact on anyone who implements the strategies I teach. I want to help you create a lifestyle around your passion that will be more fulfilling, enjoyable, and profitable.
My distaste for today’s corporate environment is hard to hide. However, you don’t have to quit your job tomorrow, and I’ve always thought that, if we love our present, we must love the past that brought us here. I’m grateful for the experience I’ve had, and I'm excited that I can leverage it to help others.
I ran my own franchise at the age of 18, and the entrepreneurial bug dug in deep. After graduate school in business, I became a Certified Public Accountant. I went to work for Ernst & Young, one of the Big 4 accounting firms. This allowed me to see dozens of businesses and get a feel for what works and what doesn’t. I worked at Infospace when it acquired Tax Act and divested Mercantila. I assisted in a public offering on Wall Street with Intellicheck Mobilisa, and I supervised the finances and accounting preparations for the pre-IPO stage Adaptive Biotechnologies.
Now I truly am “living the dream” as I work to help others break their golden handcuffs and start work on their passions. You’ve already spent years becoming an expert at your job, hobby, or passion, and I want to help you turn that into a business that will let you live the life you want. Head to IQuitMyJobToHelpYouQuitYours.com to start the leap from employee to entrepreneur today!
