Steve is a Navy veteran and obtained his MBA from UCLA. He is based in Ohio.

A recent observation by Steve Bush about helping small businesses:

"For more than the past two decades, I have actively helped small business owners and individuals to communicate and negotiate with bankers and suppliers more effectively. This role will continue to receive most of my personal and professional energy during the next few years. While acting as a persuasive advocate for the interests of small businesses and individual borrowers, I have seen how the banking industry continues to have an unfair advantage. I am always pleased to help each small business owner level this playing field whenever I can."

Steve's prediction about bank risks and problems:

"In my view, current financial and banking problems and risks will not be satisfactorily resolved until severe bank limitations (at least as strong as the Glass-Steagall Act that was repealed in 1999) are enacted and enforced. I am not alone in making such a prediction, but keep in mind that the banks themselves are likely to do everything in their power to keep it from coming true."

      3 years ago

      On the one hand I am new to HubPages along with the Squidoo transition adventure, and on the other hand I am a two-year old on HubPages through my existing activities here. I intentionally joined HubPages during a low point (2012) in the site's evolution. I have been pleased to see the ongoing...

      YouTube Videos Still Not Transferred

      3 years ago

      Although another thread reports that a problem involving transfer of YouTube videos was fixed after re-importing lenses, the rush to declare the problem fixed is highly premature. I still see no evidence of YouTube videos --- this makes every single article incomplete (and nonsensical in many cases...
