How is this event special?
So, when was the last time you met a guy who was sued for $1.4 Billion?
Well, meet Steve Baker.
Steve built an incredibly successful company that did $500 million in revenue in its first year. But then between a $1.4 Billion lawsuit and the stock market crash the company blew up. Steve was forced into bankruptcy and lost everything he had.
Steve knows that in business and life you can do everything right and it can still all go wrong. From his experiences, he wrote the award winning book PUSHING WATER UPHILL With A Rake: Memoirs of a Successful Failure.
Steve shares his first-hand experience of business tips to build a successful business but also explains that you will fail as you go through life. He learned that the road to success is paved in failure and it’s not if you fail but how you handle failure in your business and life that counts.
A serial entrepreneur who has started many successful businesses, Steve is a small business advocate and business advisor with a passion for helping startup companies grow. He embraces absurd thinking to help create innovative ideas in marketing and business development to help business succeed. He writes articles for Colorado Biz Magazine and is a frequent public speaker to business groups and universities. He lives in Littleton, Colorado where he is an avid poor golfer.
