How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

As a Strategic Business Advisor, it is my responsibility to get people to ask the deeper questions, to think beyond what is acceptable and expected. Great Entrepreneurs see things differently, they believe differently and they exceed their own expectations.

Natalie Cooper-Berthe
We worked together  •  COO & Business Strategist | Entrepreneur | Profitability Expert | Change Agent | Advisor, Resource, Cheerleader
I've been working closely with Steve for this past year, and he's been an excellent sounding board for so many issues. He provides perspecti ... ve, support and training that is on-target and timely. More importantly, when we're "stuck" on a problem or issue, he offers insight and solutions that help us easily get past that obstacle. He truly understands the mindset of the entrepreneur and the issues that start-ups face.
David Jackson
We worked together  •  Founding President & CEO, EverythingOceans, Inc.. Previously Financial Advisor | IAR | Retirement Planning | Annuities | Investments, VALIC.
As a small business owner of a start-up named EverythingOceans, Inc., Steve Thompson has been an invaluable resource for my management team ... and me. Steve has been our "go to" source for sound business strategy and problem-solving. In addition, for the past year, Steve has personally advised me with weekly coaching sessions.
Jen Hamilton
They're my advisor  •  Chief Executive Officer, Institute For Mastering Success. Previously Faculty, Becker Professional Education.
Steve's focuses on doing what is best for those he supports and works with. He is commitment to their success. While his breadth and depth ... of experience and knowledge is needed by most, he is straight with people if he can or cannot serve the. If for some reason, he can't be of service, he will do whatever he can to find someone who can. Steve is a man of his word and excellent at building lasting relationships.
Melissa Dawn
We worked together  •  Life & Business Coach, CEO of Your Life Inc. Previously VP Marketing, Life & Business Coach, Herd Wisdom.
People do business with people they know. like and trust. Once you get to know Steve, you will see he is someone you will love and trust. It ... 's great doing business with someone who has such a great personality and sticks to his values.

Steve has a knack for guiding and giving real life scenarios that are practical. He is passionate about helping others and making their drea ... ms become reality.
Jan Goss-Gibson
We worked together  •  CEO, Jan Goss International and Founder and CEO, Civility Consulting.
Steve and I were involved in a mastermind group together, so I was fortunate to have his input on a weekly basis and listen to him speak to ... other business owners and CEOs. He is a great listener, many times hearing not just what is being said, but also what is NOT being said. Steve offered brilliant strategies and general business advice resulting in the creation and growth of several businesses during our time together. Not only is he a powerful business advisor, he is an all around great guy and easy to work with.

Natalie Cooper-Berthe
They're my advisor  •  COO & Business Strategist | Entrepreneur | Profitability Expert | Change Agent | Advisor, Resource, Cheerleader
Natalie has consistently proven to me that she has the "It Factor" that is crucially needed for all successful entrepreneurs. She has a way ... of weeding through the idiosyncrasies of starting and running a company and is able to help others do the same. Her mindset is true to the core values of systematizing and structuring a business around the needs of the organization, their customers and the employees that must implement the strategies on a daily basis.

David Jackson
They're my advisor  •  Founding President & CEO, EverythingOceans, Inc.. Previously Financial Advisor | IAR | Retirement Planning | Annuities | Investments, VALIC.
Over the past year I've had the honor of standing next to David Jackson as he turned an idea of bringing Ocean Stewardship to the forefront ... of humanity. As the CEO of Everything Oceans, David is directing this ship on a course that will bring Ocean Awareness to the world. Not only for this generation, but for generations to come.

Creating an Orgasmically Joyful Live is a pretty bold statement for most mentors to even consider as a tag line for their business, but this ... unique brand of inspiration falls completely in alignment with Mellissa’s philosophy of life and her attitude for finding a work/life balance that is unlike any other. Melissa Dawn delivers this guidance and wisdom and lives the life that inspires her clients to take the journey from ordinary to extraordinary.
