Hi, I'm Steve
I started life in an orphanage in Fiji, then was adopted and moved to Launceston, Tasmania we I grew up.
After finishing school I ventured to the 'big island' to have find my place in life. The defining moment for me was $14 in my bank account, sitting on the edge of the Maroochy River in QLD, asking myself, do I go back to Tassie or regret not having a crack for the rest of my life.
I had a 'crack' and have been living that mantra ever since.
I found my place in banking, something I was great at. I was a Commercial Banker at Westpac for almost 10yrs. Left at the end of 2009, mid GFC as I could see alot of business owners needing help.
I figured I could help more people as a Broker, specialising in Business Finance with access to more than one credit/lending policies.
In 2010 I co-founded a business called Summit Tower Hire with a business plan, found 4 investors $6m + about $10m from the bank before we turned over $1. We went on to be the fastest company to be signed to Rio Tinto as a supplier (6 days).
Eventually, I followed my true passion back into Finance.
It was when I was in Fiji about 8 yrs ago and I got to go back to the orphanage where life started for me I realised the opportunity that I got; an education, a family and growing up in Australia.
Without sounding silly, this I guess is my 'why' I do what I do... Help other people get create and achieve their 'opportunities' in life.
When it comes to Business Finance I consider myself an expert and one of the most experienced people in Australia. My banking experience and my business experience means I know how to explain any business, the financials, the plan and the goals to get results for my clients.
I know how to solve financial problems.
Anyway that's me. Best Wishes to everyone for 2019
