Praise for What Is Your WHAT?
"Every once in awhile a book comes along that stands out in its ability to really help people. If you are one of those people who feels unsatisfied with your work or still haven′t figured out what you want to do when you grow up, read this book, do the brilliantly constructed exercises, and watch your life transform."
Jack Canfield, co–creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul®series and co–author of The Success Principles
"We are told the biggest regret shared by people in their final days is they did not live an authentic life. Busy living out the expectations of others, they tried to be ′responsible′ and ′practical,′ but missed the one thing that would have made them great. In this timely book, Steve draws from the examples of people living their WHAT to give each of us a step–by–step process for living authentically. Prepare to become who you were born to be."
