Through his business and in his life, Steve brings a message of Balance to those who may be experiencing an unstable market, unstable finances, family life, clients, habits, etc. Steve reminds us of the principles of life that help keep us balanced, focused, productive, and thriving. Using amusing stories and anecdotes, he weaves the listener’s heart around the values of Constant Integrity, Self-Awareness, Courage, Friendship, Freedom, Joy, Self-Discipline and Home & Family.

The values and principles he discusses have always been the yardstick by which successful men and women have both defined success and measured their life’s accomplishments. Steve shows that these traits are often overlooked but not unreachable. His down to earth application of these qualities of life should leave the listener with a renewed sense of hope and purpose.
The following quote from Steve sums it up:
Few things in life are as exciting as helping someone be their best. I love seeing a person choose to put their whole heart to a task. The choice to succeed is just that – a choice. A sign at a lonely crossroad in Canada reads, “Choose your rut carefully – you’ll be in it for the next 100 miles.” What we do today does matter. If we truly want to be different “One Day”, we are going to have to start now. I meet people every day who have a million excuses for why they are the way they are. They blame the world for their attitude, economic status, relationship problems, business failures, and the list can (and does) go on. The answer lies within each of us. Our task is to find it.
