REAL ESTATE INVESTOR & ADVISOR

BUSINESS MAGNET & CONSULTANT
Over the past decade, Steve has created 6 companies that have all hit $1,000,000 in revenue their first year with two of them, going from $0 to over $10,000,000. Steve often declares he has no competition, as he understands that he himself is the only person that can prevent him from greatness.
“Most people are too busy following and trying to figure out what I’m doing rather than think for themselves or taking my courses.”
Mainly, Steve attributes his success to his core business principles, which are:
- Understand the Customers Desired Outcomes, Know How You Can Over-deliver on Value and Help Them Overcome Their Limiting Beliefs.
- Be Creative, Provide Solutions and Push Boundaries.
- Model What Works and Make it Better by Looking Outside Your Industry.
- People Won’t Trust You At First Glance. Let Them Experience What You’re Offering First.
- Continuously Give Yourself a Business R-I-M Job (Re-Invention Method).
- Recruit Amazing Talent and Treat Them Feel Better Than Your Customers.
- Don’t be an Asshole (Everyone Should be Treated Like the Gold They Are. Relax)
Steve only creates and/or operates businesses that truly solve consumer headaches and wholeheartedly helps people. After his family and philanthropy, his main focus is Martel U Inc. which has the sole purpose of helping people believe in themselves. Martel U Inc accomplishes this by first removing any and all limiting beliefs stuck in our minds in order to view the world through the eyes of the Ultra-Successful.
Then, after mastering the 7-Core Traits of the Ultra-Successful, they help people double, triple or quadruples their businesses or real estate investment portfolio by continuing to strengthen the mindset of the business owner and teaching new age techniques that can scale anyone’s business to the next level.

“My Vision is To Help 100,000,000 People Break Barriers of ‘Conventional Wisdom’. So I must go out there, test the unknown, fall and get back up, so that I can discover what works. From there I adapt my approach in order to achieve tremendous success. I do all of this so that I can be in a position to teach you how to duplicate my success. This is how I intend on accomplishing my vision”
In order to achieve his vision, exponential growth is necessary. Steve is planning on releasing 4 best selling books over the next 5 years with all proceeds going towards charity. Stop & Think (in order to finally gain control of your life), The Business R-I-M Job (How to Completely Re-Invent Your Business), PROsuasion (selling is a lifestyle) and lastly, How to Turn SH!T into Gold (Real Estate as Never Seen).

People across the world seek out Steve’s legendary wealth training systems because of his “no BS”, straight to the point, step-by-step systems that are ushering in a new era of actionable results-based education.
In the last 7 years, Steve has generated over $47,500,000 through sales alone (he was semi-retired for two of those years). He has raised over $27,000,000.00 of private equity in the toughest economy in the last century for his private portfolio.
Disclaimer: Steve does not brag or recommended it after having spent 4 years battling and winning against the Securities Commission of Ontario. He has achieved world-class results while selling on his platform (public speaking) having sold over 46% of his crowds with extremely high ticket prices (six digits).
Steve has literally re-invented ‘sales’. Gone are the days of Al Kriesel (the cheesy used car salesman played by Steve Martin) and Irwin Mainway (owner of Mainway Toys played by Dan Akroyd) on SNL back in the ’80’s where salesman condemned trust and authority.
In the 21st Century…
“Our World Has Changed. People Are Connected, Educated and Ultimately Better Consumers Which Means That Sales Needs to Change as a Profession”
Today, selling is about providing extreme value BEFORE a wallet is open. It’s about studying your customers’ dynamic behavioral profile and customizing a rock solid logical reason to buy by demonstrating the potential results in advance and painting a clear picture that can be visualized and felt by your customer. This is called PROsuasion- The Profession of persuading and influencing people towards a mutually desired and beneficial action.
Steve’s devotes most of his “working” time to philanthropic projects. Having strongly supported his friend Sir Richard Branson’s philosophy of creating businesses as a force for good, Steve is actively involved in the continued development, support and assistance for those in need.
Steve has a two-prong approach to his philanthropic movement. Provide empowering knowledge on the capability of one’s mind in resource-rich countries such as North America & physiological goods to individuals living in developing countries such as housing.
“The More That You Good That You Put Out Into This World, The More Good That Will Come Back to You.”
STEVE MARTEL’S HOUSE FOR
A HOME PROJECT
Steve first got introduced to building homes in Haiti by his friend and 5 times bestselling author Frank McKinney in 2011 (as seen on the right). This inspired Steve to create his own initiative called “A House for a Home Project” whereas every time a new student would buy their first investment property, he would house a Haitian in Need.
Today, Steve has housed over 1,000 Haitians through his Martel Alliance with the Help of strategic partners on the ground in Haiti. He has also helped build and fee orphanages in need.
STEVE MARTEL’S DISCOVER YOUR GREATNESS INITIATIVE
Steve is passionate about empowering others to work on their self-discovery and growth and encourages them to Stop & Think in order to live the life they are destined to live. He believes that learning how to control one’s mind and thought the process is the single most important skill you can ever refine. Unfortunately, not everyone is consciously aware of the power of their thoughts and their minds as they are coming from impoverished upbringings, sheltered from the world of self-improvement and success.
Inspired by the ‘One for One’ model first initiated by Blake Mycoskie of TOM Shoes. For every Mind Expansion product Steve Sells, he donates one to a person in need throughout North America. His strongest demonstration of this is in his hometown of Ottawa, Canada where he has worked alongside the Youville Center, focusing on assisting adolescent mothers that come from low economic backgrounds to overcome their challenges and circumstances. Steve Martel is committed to helping others through difficult times to prosper and achieve their goals.
STEVE MARTEL’S LEGACY
What sets Steve apart from others is his willingness to go where most fear going in order to leave a path for others to follow. This is what is at the root of all of his success. Part of being a trailblazer is experiencing constant failure until you discover a way to overcome it. Along with Steve’s path to success, he has constantly overcome obstacles and all of the negative thoughts and emotions that are associated with it.
Steve has overcome childhood cancer, Hodgkins Lymphoma 3B at the age of 15 when he had days left to live proving modern medicine wrong. He suffered a heart attack at the age of 23 which was caused by overworking while building his first business (manual grunt work)that contributed to future financial challenges. Fearing another heart attack, he suffered severe anxiety attacks unable to control his mind at the time. He has overcome alcoholism and depression which he used as a coping mechanism while his life was being torn apart by accusations from a government agency which later went on to exonerate him from all charges.
Steve has had his fair share of challenges. Having suffered his heart attack, he took time away from his real estate career to spend time with his family and find a smarter path to success. However, his lifestyle costs quickly caught up with him and was forced to file a personal bankruptcy in order to keep his focus and sanity.
He then went on to build his real estate portfolio and create his ultra-successful consulting company teaching Canadians how to invest in American real estate markets.
Ignoring their warnings and continuing to help Canadians move their wealth to a foreign market, Steve went head to head with the Canadian government. His toughest battle was against the Ontario Securities Commission’s public false accusations putting his reputation in questions in the eyes of the public and quietly alienating all his students behind closed doors. Stubbornly refusing to accept any plea bargain, Steve finally won his case after a four-year battle, closure of his businesses, loss of friendships and clients, and a very long divorce.
“They May Have Won a Few Battles, But I Won The War. What Would I Have Taught My Children By Succumbing To Their Intimidation And Writing a Check To Make it Go Away”
“I Actually Have To Thank Them. It Gave Me Two Years To Study ‘Why People Keep Failing’ Which Inspired Me To Write ‘Stop & Think’ By Witnessing Everyone Around Me Pick The Losing Team.”
HUSBAND & FATHER OF
4 AMAZING CHILDREN
Having undergone chemotherapy and radiation treatment to beat his childhood cancer, doctors had told Steve he was unable to father children. In his early twenties, he repeated a fertility test which had also failed. Proving science wrong for the second time in his life, Steve has become the father of four ‘miracle children’.
As Steve has discovered through the growing pains of life, creating and juggling multiple successful businesses at the same time, fighting to keep them alive during a government attack, and being a parent, can take its toll on the relationships in your life. Going through a depression while fighting his legal battles, Steve ended up going through a divorce where he faced losing custody of his children unless he complied to all demands (one battle he didn’t want to fight).
All He has since refocused on what is important in life; playing an instrumental role in his children’s lives and setting them up for success. He is grateful for the ‘awakening’ that he received, and the second chance he now has to be there for his family.
All this is to say, Steven J. Martel has experienced failure! And what has allowed him to overcome his challenges is his ability to control the negative emotions fear and anxiety and the negative thoughts of worry and doubt and to replace them with positive, empowering emotions, thoughts & beliefs. This is what he calls his ‘recipe for success’, and this is what his legacy will be. Steve is committed to teaching his students his ‘working from the inside out’ approach so that they can build a foundation of empowerment so that they can build towards their idea of what their success looks like.
