20 Jun S02:E10: The Bluefish’s Steve Sims Goes from Bouncer to Modern Day Wizard of Oz
From a journey to the International Space Station, to partying at the Oscars with Sir Elton John, lunching with Donald Trump, and getting married in the Vatican by the pope; luxury and adventure concierge service, The Bluefish, makes dreams come true for VIP clients. Intrigued? So were we. We sit down with the modern day Wizard of Oz and founder of The Bluefish, Steve Sims, at the historic Barney’s Beanery in Los Angeles.
Steve started his career as a doorman arranging extravagant, bank-sponsored parties for affluent guests in hopes of landing a career as a banker. Eventually, Steve realized that he already had a job complete with an A-list network, wealthy clients, trust and credibility. The East London Irishman and master connector began monetizing his networking skills after being taught an invaluable lesson; if they don’t pay, they don’t pay attention. The Bluefish was born.
Before getting swept away in the mouth-watering bliss that is the Barney’s Cali Burger, Scott, Alan, and Steve discuss raising a family as an entrepreneur, staying authentic to your brand, and setting healthy boundaries with clients. Plus, we review the Business & Burgers tested, road warrior approved Samsung Galaxy Book 2-in1 PC with Windows 10 Professional and Samsung Flow technology.

Tasty quote to chew on: “I always had a very simple philosophy; I only play with people I like.”
Food for thought:
- Don’t let money change who you are, just be you.
- Take time to see if a deal is right for you, don’t sign right away.
- If they don’t pay, they don’t pay attention. Don’t work for free.
