Staying In Touch for Success

Steven Robertson Stop Riding the PineSteven’s goal is to ensure an experience of a lifetime for his students. That means staying in touch with the current generation whether that’s Gen-X or Gen-Z. Listening to the people his camps engage with is critical.

It is important to understand who they are and what they are interested in. That keeps the entrepreneurial spirit flowing within the company.

You have to be looking ahead to what’s new to be successful. You have to be relevant to your customer.

Getting Started in the States

Steven is originally from South Africa and moved to America 18 years ago with his wife and family. He started teaching tennis and within 18 months had an opportunity to manage the HR department at Julian Krinsky. He absorbed everything he could and truly enjoyed the process of hiring the 300 some staff required for the summer camps.

“Culture is one of the most powerful and important parts of any business.” Steven Robertson.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
