How I can help you

I can help clients with just about any small business issue.  

Today I own a commercial and residential real estate company, as well as an oil and gas company that includes a video production and training arm.

As a serial entrepreneur, I founded several small businesses in Colorado. I started Horizon Interactive which was a documentations and training development company. Over 5 years I grew the company to about 30 employees and over $3 million in annual revenue with operations in Colorado, Massachusetts, Texas, and Georgia. I sold Horizon Interactive to Interleaf, a public company, and served as their Vice President of Operations - Service Division. At Interleaf I grew the services business from $8 million to over $32 million in sales and 250+ employees within 2 years. After interleaf was acquired for their intellectual property, I founded IC Interactive with a partner and acquired the assets of Interleaf’s service business. After operating IC Interactive for 2 years we sold it to a private investor.

Today my real estate and oil and gas companies provide enough passive income to allow me to devoted all my energies to researching and testing the latest small business trends and helping entrepreneurs start, grow and have successful business exits on a full-time basis. 

I have been sharing what I've learned about small business since 2014 on my very successful small business advice blog (https://www.stevebizblog.com/) which contains over a thousand business lessons that I have shared with clients.  Give me a call.
