Steve is the greatest business coach I have encountered, and an absolute inspiration. I was fortunate enough to learn from him over 18 months. He's direct, courageous and an absolute master at his craft. My experience during the program, as well as 1:1 with him has been a complete game changer to scale my business.
We have known Steve for many years now and his passion, commitment and drive is second to none. He always goes the extra mile and genuinely cares about the success of our business. Recently we attended a workshop with Steve to discuss growing our business for the purposes of selling for the best price. We walked away feeling very motivated and inspired. The level of professionalism and constructive advice was first class. I would recommend Steve and Courage for Profit to anyone.

I cannot recommend Steve more highly and hope to use his services in future businesses.

His depth of knowledge and ability to cut through to the core issue are outstanding. A recent training session of Steve's that I attended was absolutely world
