1. Unlike many speakers…Steve has actually done what he speaks about! He has spent over 3 decades in the trenches leading, teaching and doing. A serial entrepreneur, he’s the founder of seven successful, sales-driven companies…including a wildly successful Nashville advertising agency and broadcast production company. Additionally, he’s been a popular college teacher and television personality.
2. At age 27, Steve was diagnosed with significant heart disease…then in his 30’s, he underwent 5 heart bypasses…and was given only one to two years to live. Thankfully, God had other plans. That was over 25 years ago. In 2000, he sold his businesses with a mission to go from success to significance…and share what he’s learning. Today, Steve takes five-mile runs, routinely flies over 100,000 miles annually, and speaks to audiences about 120 times each year.
Steve delivers what he calls The 5 E’s: Educate, Entertain, Enrich, Encourage, and Enthuse™ as he helps his audiences get beyond the noise, so they can enjoy the symphony of their lives.

He’s hosted a number of radio and TV shows including his weekly oldies anthology show, Coast to Coast Gold w/ SteveDiggs™.
