When we consider the essence of what the Monaco 40 over 40 represents, it's individuals who've showcased remarkable drive, innovative thinking, and a commitment to making a difference. Steven Foster, founder of One Golden Nugget, embodies these principles in every facet of his life and professional journey.

One Golden Nugget isn't just a book publisher; it's a movement. By cultivating communities across the globe, Foster is on an ambitious mission: elevating the consciousness of humanity. He taps into the invaluable wisdom of professionals, philanthropists, and other change-makers, ensuring their lessons reach those who need them most.

A veteran entrepreneur of 25 years, Steven's narrative isn't just about success; it’s also about resilience. Facing the abyss of rock bottom thrice, he's intimately familiar with the trials and tribulations of the entrepreneurial path. But more importantly, he knows the sweet taste of rebound and reconstruction, of building something transformative from the ashes.

Foster's philosophy is simple: be an active participant in life, rather than a passive observer. This ethos fuels his global movement, which captures and shares life's "golden nuggets". These pieces of wisdom have the potential to reshape perspectives and, in some cases, even lives.

Music, another of Steven’s profound passions, has seen him establish a record label, which, at its peak, boasted six albums in the Top 40. He owned Dreamscape, a leading dance institution, and delved into the music industry's glamour, even being part of a boy band. His talent as a songwriter is undeniable, with several hit records under his belt.

Beyond business and music, Steven shines in his athletic pursuits. From running 11 marathons and 100 half-marathons to cycling an impressive 1000 miles from John O’Groats to Land’s End, his resilience is awe-inspiring.

His life, a mix of soaring highs and crushing lows, has given him a unique perspective. Steven's insatiable thirst for learning continually refines his world-view, underscoring the idea that the universe indeed has a plan.

Today, through One Golden Nugget, Steven's commitment to sharing knowledge remains unwavering. He fervently believes in uniting the world in a collective movement, one that applauds success, ambition, and tenacity.

In choosing Steven Foster “The Wisdom Seeker” for the Monaco 40 over 40, we're not just celebrating an individual. We're honoring a journey, a philosophy, and a commitment to enriching lives. One Golden Nugget truly encapsulates his ethos: share the love by sharing the wisdom.
