Once upon a time, Steve Rizzo was told by a guidance counselor that he didn’t have the intelligence for college. A few years later, he was saddled with the dubious high school honor of being voted “Least Likely to Succeed.” Steve went on to surprise everyone, including himself, by excelling with honors at the university and postgraduate levels. Eventually, he even taught English at his old high school and was a counselor for students with behavioral problems, proving once and for all that guidance counselors are not fortune-tellers.


Steve would go on to stellar success as a national headline comedian and starred in his very own Showtime comedy special, earning him honors as a Showtime Comedy All-Star. But the surprises didn’t stop there. At the pinnacle of his stand-up career, Steve walked away from comedy to pursue his true purpose and passion—to show people how to shift their focus and way of thinking, discover more joy and enthusiasm, increase productivity, and achieve greater levels of success.


Steve offers more than the usual nuts and bolts on how to succeed. He stresses the importance of enjoying yourself during the process of achieving your goals and building a solid foundation to stand on when all else fails because he absolutely knows that no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in, attitude is everything. When Steve Rizzo shares his blueprint for success with Fortune 500 companies and associations across the globe, he delivers a powerful message for living an extraordinary life, because he lives the Common Sense Success Strategies that have made him a member of the prestigious Speakers Hall of Fame—an honor bestowed on fewer than 250 speakers worldwide since 1977. Steve is the author of the bestselling books Motivate THIS! and Get Your SHIFT Together. He is a regular contributor to Success magazine and is often called upon as the go-to guy on the topic of personal and professional development for many networks, cable, and radio media outlets.
