MP3 CD (5/17/2016)
Despite stock market crashes, dot-com busts, and the specter of recession, the author started a virtual company from home, using a few thousand dollars of his savings. A few years later, without ever hiring an employee or leaving his home office, he sold it for more than $100 million. As the economy slipped into another free fall, he did this again with a company in a different field. He accomplished this through no particular genius. Rather, he studied the habits of the many successful men and women who preceded him, and developed three simple rules that, if followed diligently, virtually ensure success. Using them first to escape poverty, then to achieve a life of adventures, he finally turned them toward financial independence.
Written in a straightforward and no-nonsense style, Three Simple Steps shows you how to take back control of your destiny and reshape your mind for increased creativity, serenity and achievement. While building on the wisdom of great thinkers and accomplished individuals from East and West, Three Simple Steps isn't a new age text or guide to esoteric fulfillment. Rather, it's a practical guide to real-life achievement by a pragmatic businessman who attributes his incredible successes to these very simple ideas. Three Simple Steps is a must-read guide for everyone who wants to achieve more, live better and be happier.

"One of the best experiences in my career was working for Trevor Blake. The ability to inspire one to achieve comes not through sharing a philosophy, but by sharing and imparting a belief in your success, and the steps to get there. Trevor did that for me. I continue to carry that belief throughout my varied career as a business executive, singer, and mother, and this book is a reminder that no matter what the barriers, you can achieve your own definition of greatness."
Joan Curto, Cabaret icon and bestselling artist of May I Suggest?
"This book bucks the self-help-book trends of bullets, charts, grids and web links, trading them for elegant, powerful truths about what it takes to create a prosperous, happy life -- at home and at work.
Tara-Nicholle Nelson, Inman News
"Offers sound advice and clear steps that could be applied to one's own life."
Lani Relucio, Examiner.com
"I've read dozens of personal fixer-upper tomes by business gurus and New Age self-helpers, but this one is different in one important way: Blake actually followed his own three simple steps to get to where he is today—a happily married multimillionaire businessman and philanthropist. Finally, a self-help author who's done more than write self-help books!"
