We had the good fortune of connecting with Steven Samblis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Steven, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Knowing who my client or customer is has been a huge part of our 1 Habit book series’ success. When I create the first 1 Habit book, I thought the reader was my client. As I stepped back, I realized the actual client was the Contributors to the books. I realized, if I do everything possible to put the Contributors in the best light possible, and give them the biggest voice possible, people would love them and, in turn, love our books. This epiphany was a game-changing moment in my life and the life of our book series.

What should our readers know about your business?
Our company, 1 Habit Press, is a vertically integrated media company with a focus on the development of Human Potential. Our premier product is a series of books with the theme of 1 Habit. We believe that just 1 Habit can change your life forever. We created a series of books, each with a theme. In each book, Contributors share the 1 Habit that has served them the greatest in their lives. Our books cover a spectrum of needs from 1 Habit For a Thriving Home Office to 1 Habit to Beat Bullying. We have published six books in the last year and have another 25 in the works. With the book series and other projects, we are embarking on a journey to discover where Greatness and Peak Human Potential comes from. We share the resulting knowledge through many forms of media, from Movies, Books, TV Shows, Podcasts, and much more.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite spot is a club I belong to called The Grand Havana Room. It is a private club over-looking the center of Beverly Hills. It has a full bar and extensive wine cellar. The club offers the best Italian food and sushi in the city and incredible hamburgers and pizza. We have lockers at the club which hold our cigars which we can smoke in the club. If you don’t have a cigar, there is an incredible selection of cigars available. But the best part is the members. Membership is comprised of the top filmmakers, Actors, and Studio execs in the world of Hollywood. But, the best part is they are the most down to earth people you could ever meet. In the land of Hollywood, this could be the one remaining BS-free zone that exists. I love to bring my friends to the club because it is such a one-of-a-kind experience.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am forever grateful to the incredible Co-Authors and Contributors that I have had the honor of working within our ever-growing series of books.  I also owe a great deal to Mark and Tracy Tufo who guided me and taught me how publishing works.
