With his self-confidence in ruins, he decided to follow in his parents' footsteps and train to be a doctor.
For two years running, he was awarded Junior Doctor Of The Year and was on route to becoming an Accident and Emergency Consultant.
The problem was, medicine took away the one thing he valued most - his freedom.
In 2016, Steve emigrated to Sweden to start a family.
Within the first few months, his dad passed away, and his son spent the first week of his life in intensive care.
That caused Steve to reflect on what was most important to him. He decided to quit medicine and fulfil his lifelong ambition to start a successful business and live life on his terms.
Things didn't go exactly as planned, and he found himself overwhelmed and wondering if he'd made the right decision.
Instead of giving up, Steve went all in. He was determined to figure out how to make a business successful without it taking over your life and without needed to give up equity to make it happen.
Supported by his property portfolio income, he dedicated 100% of this time to developing a system to overcome the challenges that all self-funded entrepreneurs face.
In doing so, he created The Systems For Outsourcing Methodology.
