As a business owner, it’s easy to get caught up in a lot of future planning. For host Steve Cloward, one of the things that helped him most was, perhaps counterintuitively, skipping past that.

“Start out and ask yourself, ‘Where do you want to be in five years? Okay, in 10 years?’ And then let’s back up and go to one year, write that down. Then back to six months, then 90 days, then next month. Then I’m going to walk you through exactly what I map out each week, still, to reach the goals I want in my business each week.”

Looking ahead and working backward is just one of the core tools that helped Steve to grow his business. A lot of it is also about mindset. And no matter what stage of the journey you’re in with your own business, in this episode of Life After Addiction & Indictment, he’s sharing the processes and mindset tricks that have helped him along the way in his path to becoming an entrepreneur.


What You’ll Learn:

  • How a “general’s tab” helps Steve prioritize 
  • Why the bottom line for reaching goals is consistency
  • The routine Steve starts his day with
  • And much more!


Favorite Quote:

“Figure out what works for you and do that. Don’t get hung up on trying to duplicate somebody else that’s successful and thinking that you have to be rigid the way they do. Because we’re all different.”
