Hello there. I'm Steve Sorensen, a Des Moines-based investment strategist and business blogger. Welcome to my business blog. I received my degree in business from Iowa State University. I do a lot of research on many of the world's most successful companies, in particular on how they built up their net worth over the years.

This assists me in helping my clients find the right mix of companies to add to their portfolios. I spend my weekend downtime keeping fit by playing tennis doubles with friends. I enjoy country music and like to keep updated on the country music festivals. Check back from time to time to see what I've written about.
