Dirk Steenekamp is a media mogul with an interesting story, as well as some very interesting hobbies.  This South African entrepreneur has learned what it takes to make it in the media industry, and in many ways, has done it better than the rest.  He claims to have gotten into the business “by accident” but where it has taken him has been no accident.  His level of success only comes from hard work, determination, and pure grit.  Like many, he has faced challenges and betrayal but hasn’t slowed down.  When many in the media industry were focused primarily on print, he noticed the trends of the approaching digital age and capitalized on the opportunity to make the switch.  Being a small business proved to be more beneficial for him during those times, and he has not slowed down since.  Speed also happens to be one of his favorite ways to spend his personal time.  His hard work has enabled him to explore some of the hobbies he loves – nice cars, nice watches, and martial arts.  He and his friends have a car club featuring some of the premiere sports cars on the planet.  Your mouth would water just looking at the photos.  Steenekamp is a family man who made the life-changing decision to fit their whole lives into only a few cases and move to the states to provide a better life for his family.  His story is inspiring and intriguing and we hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.
