The man who created Bluefish, the internationally famous company that makes once-in-a-lifetime events happen for the rich and famous, reveals to the rest of us his trade secrets for making things happen.
Steve Sims' day job is to make the impossible possible. With his help and expertise, his clients' fantasies and wildest dreams come true. Getting married by the Pope in the Vatican, being serenaded by Elton John, and connecting with powerful business moguls like Elon Musk are just a few of the many projects he has worked on. He rarely reveals how he accomplishes the feats that make his clients so happy. But now for the first time, Steve shares his practical tips, techniques, and strategies to help listeners break down any obstacle and turn their dreams into reality.
The core of his philosophy focuses on simple yet effective ways to sharpen the mind and gain practical skills that can help you learn a new perspective and accomplish anything. Whether it's climbing Mount Everest, launching a business, or applying for a dream job, you can make incredible things happen for yourself by applying his insightful advice, such as:
- ask why three times,
- never be the first call, and
- don't be easy to understand, be impossible to misunderstand.
With colorful and enlightening stories of people driven to achieve the impossible, this book will inspire you to transform your life and aim for the unthinkable.
Bluefishing is a lean, rollicking, all killer-no filler playbook on what it takes to make dreams come true. If you want to learn how to get literally anything done, read this book. It takes you deep into the mindset and process of someone who specializes in making the impossible happen.
I had the privilege of briefly assisting Steve Sims on a few small projects some years back and it was one of those formative experiences that really taught me the importance of delivering beyond expectations as Steve does on a daily basis. What struck me most about Steve was his incredible humility despite having achieved so much in his life. In a world of outsized egos, Steve was the real deal - a generous mentor with a tremendous amount of knowledge to impart. I'll always be grateful to him for giving me my first shot and having the patience to teach me some much needed lessons in business and life.
If you buy one book this year, make it this one. Highly recommended in every sense.
Take everything you ever thought you knew about taking care of the people you work with... and now throw it all out the window after reading this book.
Having listen to Steve Sims on a few podcasts and meeting him in person, he is the real deal. This book gives great insight to how to approach everything from the people in your circle, the walls and doors we put up on our own and the tools to take our limiting beliefs and toss them out the window.
Having read the book once so far, I have already started using some of the tips he has throughout the entire book to improve the way I do my day to day interactions with people and businesses.
I love how Steve inserts his own story into the book in an open and vulnerable way -- not in a manipulative rags-to-riches fashion that so many "leaders" tend to do, but rather with an identifiable authenticity that is far too rare.
Grab this book immediately and get to it! Read it, study it, listen to it, and live it.
No matter what your lot in life or where along the journey you are, this book will inspire and incite you in the best ways possible.
There are so many great nuggets to take from this book its raw and real no BS and a super easy read.
Would definitely recommend.
Not one of those feel good, wishy washy books, this is the right stuff!
Get the book, you can thank me later!
This book moved me in ways others have not. The gems that are hidden throughout make this book a steal of a deal.
