Steve Meisenheimer started his business career at age 16, going door-to-door to offer palm tree trimming services near his north Phoenix neighborhood. Eventually he built that business into a million-dollar entity, the state’s largest tree trimming company. That experience and the passion required to grow and manage a million-dollar company taught Steve about success.
Then Steve purchased a million-dollar landscaping business that taught him how quickly success can turn into near failure. Like most business leaders, Steve learned most of his leadership skills through trial and error. This was a slow, painful and very risky way to learn when the futures and fortunes of his employees, investors and many others counted on his results. But, Steve was able to turn the business around and eventually succeeded. Over time he acquired and sold 9 businesses.
In 2005 Steve decided to shift his focus to sharing the painful and expensive lessons he had learned about how to build, manage and lead successful businesses. Small business owners who want to learn the practices and achieve the results of the most effective leaders appreciate Steve’s content and motivational style. He has also authored three books, spoken to countless audiences on the topics of leadership and management, and is passionate about helping others win in this great game of business.
