“Above the Line is a simple formula for leaders who want to inspire people to light up the world through the work they do.”
--Chip Conley, Founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality and Author of PEAK
“This is a must read for entrepreneurs because Steve tells the real story of the entrepreneurial journey, not the made for TV version. He established his company culture and kept adapting the business model until it fit his culture AND made a profit!”
--Greg Crabtree, CEO Crabtree, Rowe & Berger, PC, Author of Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!
“Steve sees what we don’t, hears what we don’t and scrupulously documents, even when to do so is unflattering . . . a truth finder in an arena famously devoid.”
--Robert Wagnon, CEO – Republic State Mortgage
“When Steve Satterwhite says he believes in you, you better believe it. It’s who he is. It resonates throughout what he does. And here’s the kicker: You can’t help but be better around Steve. Above the Line proves it’s not so much a roadmap you need for bottom line success in business and in life, but an internal compass with a bearing towards “better” for ourselves and those we lead.”
--Warren Macdonald, Author of A Test of Will
“Steve’s conversational writing style and storytelling make this a must read for those striving to grow and develop in their business career at all management levels.”
--Lee Froschheiser, Executive Chairman, MAP Consulting, Author of Vital Factors

The author honestly recounts his company's journey. His company zealously focused on customer service as its differentiator, and only gradually realized that its focus on hiring & growing great employees was equally important.
The author also credits a number of other books and authors as sources for the ideas that helped improve his business. This makes "Above the Line" a great introduction to a wider selection of business-management books.
In fact, the author was so persuasive, I just placed orders for five of the books he mentioned, plus a print copy of this book (to give to a colleague).
As a fellow entrepreneur, I could relate to almost every step of Steve's journey. His easy-going, narrative style caused me to reflect on my own decisions at similar milestones in my life. And I truly appreciate knowing that other entrepreneurs have dealt with the same fears of self-doubt and self-confidence. I'm not sure I have the same strength and courage to share the depths of my life that Steve provides in this book.
For readers that are not entrepreneurs, it's an accurate and vivid portrayal of the emotional roller coaster that many business owners experience, both financially and emotionally. I believe Steve's story would be great insight for friends and family members of entrepreneurs.
Steve's journey ultimately leads the reader to the conclusion that the best way to lead in life is through authenticity and vulnerability. It's a great lesson that many people, entrepreneurs and non-entrepreneurs, will appreciate and learn in "Above The Line."
