Step It Up Entrepreneur

Mar 10, 2021

What’s the common element that powers professional athletes, successful entrepreneurs, outspoken activists and others at the top of their game? The best guy to ask would be someone who has done it all.

Steve Kuclo is a bodybuilder, Shark Tank veteran and co-founder of BootyQueen apparel alongside his wife Amanda, car enthusiast and entrepreneur whose accomplishments all share a theme: a commitment to value-driven, superior performance - even when it’s impossibly tough.

On this episode of the Step It Up Entrepreneur podcast, Tomas and Steve dive deep on who Steve is and how his star came to be on the rise in hockey and now bodybuilding, how he dials in his lifestyle to stay in top shape, the importance of having core values in common with the people in your atmosphere, and what modern-day patriotism looks like. Tune in for an interview that will inspire you to put excellence first in everything you do from here on out.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why Steve, at the peak of his athletic career, maintains that the toughest part of bodybuilding is mental, not physical
  • What appearing on Shark Tank is really like, and how it has impacted the way Steve and Amanda do business
  • How a love of cars helps Steve keep his ideal-work life balance and stay sane in the midst of a crazy-demanding career
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote:

“What separates the men from the boys or top-level pro from an average guy is going to be getting one or two reps when you don't want to do it, you feel like you're going to fail. I carried that over into a lot of my business, and passion for trying to be successful in life, you know, and it includes relationships, that includes businesses and, you know, wanting to give a lot of effort to everything I do. Anything, to me, that's worth doing is worth overdoing.”
