Steve has done a lot, from owning his own Web design training company to being the Liaison Chief in the US Marines and being recognized as the "99 Marine of the Year." However, one of Steve's most meaningful moments in life was when he read "Season of Life" by Jeffrey Marx. The book begged the question, "Are you a transactional or transformational person?" Steve realized then that his mission in life was to help others. Shortly after, he developed his life's motto and a lens to help others: Get FIT: Fully Engaged; Inspire Learning and Change; and Transfer Real Results.
Having four children keeps Steve and his wife very busy. You can find both coaching several of their kids' sports, from wrestling to football to dance. According to Steve's eldest daughter, she's no longer impressed with Steve's dance moves and prefers her mother's dance teachings instead. However, if you can't find Steve and his family on a field or at a studio, chances are they are traveling together, telling jokes (often dad jokes), exaggerating old stories, or having a family game night. When Steve can find a moment of quiet, he is most likely seeking something new to learn.
