Stacey: The feeling is very mutual, my friend. You know, I really want our listeners to really get to know you. You are an amazing man, an incredible business owner, a phenomenal speaker, and I am blessed to be really getting to know you, and I really want them to understand your journey and how you’ve created what it is you’ve created. So who is Steve Sims?

Steve: He’s a curious Irish lad from East London. And it’s never changed. In fact, my wife still says that I’m a 55 year old 5 year old. I think sadly, one of the attributes, and it can never be taught or trained, one of the attributes and I suppose one of my unicorns that has made me who I am, is curiosity. I’ve pushed buttons I shouldn’t. I’ve pulled things apart that I shouldn’t have, and I couldn’t put back together. I’ve gone into rooms and I’ve gone into situations where I was ill-qualified, or not able to keep it up. The bottom line of it is, that curiosity has propelled me forward. And along the way, I’ve been able to get somewhere. The trouble is a lot of people, they try to plan for perfection. I’ve just done.
