Steve Sims’s day job is to make the impossible possible. With his help and expertise, his clients’ fantasies and wildest dreams come true. Getting married by the Pope in the Vatican, being serenaded by Elton John, and connecting with powerful business moguls like Elon Musk are just a few of the many projects he has worked on.
He’s the visionary founder of Bluefish, the internationally famous company that makes once in a lifetime events happen for the rich and famous.
In this podcast, Steve shares his perspective of rich people having the same problems as poor people… and how he became the Make a Wish Foundation for people with large checkbooks.
