In Steve’s world, there is no distinction between achieving success in business and in life. He uses the same success principals that led to his success in the business world to succeed in all areas of his life. Whether it’s becoming a multimillionaire before age thirty, building one of his businesses from start-up to over 350 million with over 1,500 employees, raising a family, gorilla trekking in the Congo, writing bestselling books, co-producing a Broadway play or pursuing other passions and lifelong goals, his exact same principles are put into action.
In his mid-twenties, Steve hit his first big success with a marketing company called SCA. He didn’t have any business mentors or financial backing, so Steve learned on the fly. Possessing street smarts, a ton of passion, a solid work ethic, and of course some luck, Steve lived the trials of the small business owner.
Steve quickly realized that if he were going to make it big, he would need to get a lot of business from Procter & Gamble, the biggest marketing spender in the industry, so he set his sites on P&G. Steve landed his first P&G client, a $10,000 order from Scope Mouthwash. Fast forward 5 years, and Steve was working with over 50 P&G brands and billing them over $25 million per year.
Due to this success approach, he has been able to achieve every goal he’s chased, no matter how big or how difficult. Whether it’s becoming a multimillionaire before age 30, building one of his many successful businesses from start up to over $350 million or becoming a bestselling author.
Steve’s passion turned to helping others achieve the same level of success in life and business as he did. To that end, in 2004, he started Steve Kaplan Inc. where he uses his experiences to assist others.
Today, Steve is the authority on success and achievement whose no-nonsense, hands-on, innovative approach to success has helped empower and teach tens of thousands across the globe. Steve regularly appears on a variety of media (including MSNBC, NBC, CBS and Fox Television) to discuss his experiences and help others achieve success. Steve’s books, products, consulting sessions and keynotes are full of proven tactics, tools, and techniques to help foster success in life and business. Steve toured the nation’s universities on his Bag The Elephant™ Unplugged University Tour where he spoke with students, faculty and administration on success, and how students can better prepare for success in the next phase of their life.
