Now to Next with Nick Nanton Feat. Steve Sims

What you see is what you get with Steve Sims. London-native Steve Sims is a massively successful serial entrepreneur and author that tells it likes it is but is still compassionate in his approach. Host Nick Nanton and Steve discuss the true and positive meaning of being a "hustler," imagining what you could achieve if you weren't afraid of trying, and how entrepreneurs are able to tweak a bad situation into a diamond situation. Nick and Steve also talk about learning the art of negotiating from Steve's days working in clubs, the reasons you should always ask “why" three times within a conversation, and how to become so valuable that famous people want to engage with you.
