Steve Harper on The Ripple Effect: Maximizing The Power of Relationships For Your Life and Business

Steve Harper is the author of The Ripple Effect: Maximizing The Power of Relationships For Your Life and Business. I’m fortunate to have Steve join me on the podcast today to share his practical wisdom on building productive business relationships.

Steve has been an entrepreneur for over 20 years. Having owned two successful companies, he has learned what it takes to set yourself apart from the competition and develop strong client relationships. After selling his office technology company in 2004, Steve parlayed his personal passion for helping others into a fast-growing consulting practice.

Over the years, Steve has come to see that success is virtually guaranteed when you go out of your way to help people achieve what they want in life. The ripples that are caused by your actions are often returned to you in ways that you could never imagine.

In the course of this episode, Steve shares how to:

  • Grow deeper business relationships
  • Create new business opportunities
  • Avoid typical networking frustrations

Steve is an unusually humble entrepreneur with a heart for helping others. I think you’ll find his approach to growing stronger relationships both uplifting and valuable to your business. Scroll down to the Podcast Player below and listen now!

Discover Your “Core Fit” and Target Market Advantage: The Steve Woodruff Interview

Most independent professionals would love nothing better than to build a business around their core strengths. That’s why I asked an expert on this subject to join me on the podcast today for an in-depth interview.

My guest is Steve Woodruff. Steve specializes in helping solo professionals and business owners to discover their “core fit” in a specific marketplace. His unique approach is called “Clarity Therapy”. Why? Because it’s like working with a psychologist and a branding agency rolled into one.

Step-by-step, Steve helps his clients to unpack what they and their business are really all about. This includes getting clear about a number of elements, including your Company DNA, Key Offering, Market, Story, Message and Analogy.
