About this talk

This week on The New P&L we speak with Steve Sims - dubbed “The Real-Life Wizard of Oz”. In the mid-1990s, Steve founded his hugely successful high-end luxury concierge service, BlueFish, quickly building a reputation with his millionaire and billionaire clients for making the impossible, possible - from exclusive private dinners at the feet of Michelangelo's David, to underwater tours of the Titanic or being personally serenaded by Andrea Bocelli. Now a successful author, coach and keynote speaker for organisations such as Harvard University, The Pentagon ​and a host of Fortune 500 Companies, Steve is focused on helping the next generation of entrepreneurs turn their own impossible into possible. We discussed with Steve: - The key milestones and experiences that have shaped Steve’s entrepreneurial journey over the last 30 years - Whether there is a common set of characteristics that bind successful entrepreneurs together - The power of creativity in business and how we can better harness it - How effective the personal development industry really is in supporting entrepreneurs and their ambitions - The tools and techniques Steve used to build a resilient mindset - The power of impostor syndrome - Why emotional engagement in business is so important - The advice Steve’s father and grandfather offered him that changed his life - Changing definitions of success in business Instagram: @stevesims To learn more about Steve and his work, go to: Instagram: @stevesims To join The New P&L movement go to: and subscribe.

We believe business needs a ‘New P&L’: one that is focused as much on ‘Principles and Leadership’ as it is on ‘Profit and Loss’, because we know that if your Principles are right and aligned with your purpose, and your Leadership has clarity of vision and is strong, focused and empathetic, then your business will be in profit and not in loss in so many ways. Each week on The New P&L podcast, we interview a diverse range of entrepreneurs, business leaders and social impact investors on their views and opinions on the importance of Principles and Leadership in business, discussing how we can all work towards building more ethical, productive, collaborative and ultimately, successful and principled businesses - ones that encourage great, inspirational leaders and motivated teams.
