The man who created Bluefish, the internationally famous company that makes once-in-a-lifetime events happen for the rich and famous, reveals to the rest of us his trade secrets for making things happen.

Steve Sims' 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 rarely reveals how he accomplishes the feats that make his clients so happy. But now for the first time, Steve shares his practical tips, techniques, and strategies to help listeners break down any obstacle and turn their dreams into reality.

The core of his philosophy focuses on simple yet effective ways to sharpen the mind and gain practical skills that can help you learn a new perspective and accomplish anything. Whether it's climbing Mount Everest, launching a business, or applying for a dream job, you can make incredible things happen for yourself by applying his insightful advice, such as:

  • ask why three times,
  • never be the first call, and
  • don't be easy to understand, be impossible to misunderstand.

With colorful and enlightening stories of people driven to achieve the impossible, this book will inspire you to transform your life and aim for the unthinkable.

What if you could learn the secrets to building multi-million dollar VIP relationships? What if you could be taught the rules of success by someone with a client list filled with some of the world's most high profile brands and celebrities? What if you could literally conjure up the impossible?

Bluefishing is a lean, rollicking, all killer-no filler playbook on what it takes to make dreams come true. If you want to learn how to get literally anything done, read this book. It takes you deep into the mindset and process of someone who specializes in making the impossible happen.

I had the privilege of briefly assisting Steve Sims on a few small projects some years back and it was one of those formative experiences that really taught me the importance of delivering beyond expectations as Steve does on a daily basis. What struck me most about Steve was his incredible humility despite having achieved so much in his life. In a world of outsized egos, Steve was the real deal - a generous mentor with a tremendous amount of knowledge to impart. I'll always be grateful to him for giving me my first shot and having the patience to teach me some much needed lessons in business and life.

If you buy one book this year, make it this one. Highly recommended in every sense.

This book is BRILLIANT!!!

Take everything you ever thought you knew about taking care of the people you work with... and now throw it all out the window after reading this book.

Having listen to Steve Sims on a few podcasts and meeting him in person, he is the real deal. This book gives great insight to how to approach everything from the people in your circle, the walls and doors we put up on our own and the tools to take our limiting beliefs and toss them out the window.

Having read the book once so far, I have already started using some of the tips he has throughout the entire book to improve the way I do my day to day interactions with people and businesses.

I don't groove on self-help books as a general rule. However, I found Steve's book to be honest and straightforward- laid with examples that you can use or discard as they apply to you. It was a nice way to hit the "reset button" on the way I look at things. I liked how it was populated with his stories rather than a lot of mandates and homework. In other words, Bluefishing lets the reader absorb his entertaining stories and then take from the book the advice he or she wants (rather than absorbing a sermon). An entertaining bloke who has found a way to give his experiences a wider impact- good work! (It is also a quick, breezy read- I zipped through it pretty quickly on my Amazon Fire)

Steve Sims' new book (his first!) is not only informative, it is a fun read, coming from a person without a speck of pretense. For someone with connections like nobody's business, Steve is as approachable as any regular guy. It is clear from the tone of his book and his stories that he's the kind of a guy you really want to know. I am reading this cover to cover and look forward to hearing much more about Steve's adventures in the seasons to come.

A must read! This isn’t some stuffy, corporate white collar self help book! It’s common sense, down to earth, practical and extremely useful information. Whether you are a highly successful entrepreneur, small business owner, mid-level manager, or just the average Joe working to keep food on the table, this book is for you. Perhaps you are still in school pursuing any path, this book will help you achieve your dream…..if you take the advice to heart and use it. I will be encouraging my children, my team and anyone who truly wants to make things happen, to read this book and then, read it again! Thank you Mr. Sims.

Steve Sims is a modern-day icon and in his own ugly way presents the most powerful truths to having success in business and in life.

I love how Steve inserts his own story into the book in an open and vulnerable way -- not in a manipulative rags-to-riches fashion that so many "leaders" tend to do, but rather with an identifiable authenticity that is far too rare.

Grab this book immediately and get to it! Read it, study it, listen to it, and live it.

No matter what your lot in life or where along the journey you are, this book will inspire and incite you in the best ways possible.

Very practical, authentic and down to earth book. Definitely recommended

Steve Sims speaks clear, no frills and absolutely direct to the purpose inside. The book jumps out at you when you read it, regular epiphanies are not uncommon when reading the book and it is something you feel you must share, which is fantastic for friends who also benefit from the content.
Not one of those feel good, wishy washy books, this is the right stuff!
Get the book, you can thank me later!

I read a lot. And remember a lot.
This book moved me in ways others have not. The gems that are hidden throughout make this book a steal of a deal.

Muy interesante libro

- kalel_ward

A very quotable book, but short on any real specifics or strategic insights on how to create traction around change, etc. Have to say the publishers spin on this was much more favourable than mine! I do not consider this essential business reading. But enjoyed some of the chapters nonetheless.

- paola_lee

Certainly one of the top contemporary books on influence and the power of making things happen. A unique approach and style of storytelling. Go for it!
