Special guest: My friend Courtney, a ROCK STAR Giver!

April 22, 2015

I have always believed the 2 greatest things about my journey as a speaker and acts of kindness fan:

1) the people I meet

2) the person I am becoming

Among these amazing people are the teens of the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership program.

That is where I met Courtney several years ago, when she was in the audience.

I am so proud of this young lady. She's going places...and they are all great!


Is the World Kicking Out Your Jambs?

April 6, 2015

A trip to my accountant's office to have my taxes done made me smile...but not for the reason you may be thinking.

Today I realized a life lesson that's been staring me in the face for years.


3 BIG Lessons I Learned from ‘The Walking Dead’!

March 31, 2015

The Season 5 finale of 'The Walking Dead' woke me up again at 2:30am...not because I was afraid of zombies (okay, maybe a little) but because of the life/business lessons the show inspired me to share.


Giving: Who? You. When? Now. How? Keep listening…

February 23, 2015

I run across so many people who say they want to give...but aren't sure how, or what.

Simple challenge which can be cured by listening. We share ideas and ways to take action, all in a little over 2 minutes.

See list here: WHAT CAN I GIVE? 


Taking Your Shot Means So Much More Than the Score!

February 17, 2015

You can have your dreams, but they won't happen until you get off the bench and take your shot.

High school senior Chris Hodges did...and the crowd went wild!

What shots do YOU need to take?


A Quick CLICK Up Mentor Mountain!

January 19, 2015

During my "Engaging Your WHY (Envision Success)" program for a corporate client last week, an attendee approached me during a break to let me know she had just taken action based upon something I'd shared...with great results!



Guest: Kevin Willett, Big-Time Giver (and founder of Friends of Kevin)

December 31, 2014

Such an honor to have Kevin as my guest. He is a major player in the 'giving back' movement and has been a force in the networking world as well.


Steve’s Special Guest Rachel (Making Cupcakes for Homeless Veterans!)

December 29, 2014

I recently got to meet Rachel, the sister of one of my speaking partners. For eleven years, she has been making the holidays brighter for some very brave souls who have fought to defend freedom around the world...who are struggling a bit here at home. She's got a great big heart and is doing her best to share a sweet gift.


You Can Make a Difference (Yes, YOU!)

December 10, 2014

Go ahead, check the headlines. They make it look like there are more bad people out there than good.

But they are wrong. They forgot about you and I.

We're good...and we can set a good example today for someone who needs it (even ourselves).



Giving Thanks in the Dark: The Great Thanksgiving Power Outage!

December 2, 2014

Tina and I were ready to enjoy the first Thanksgiving in our new home, until Mother Nature crashed the party. 

Could we have been bitter? Frustrated? Angry?
Yes, but we decided to be thankful instead. It was easier than we thought it would be.
