Did you know... that Steve Rizzo, PhB was a national headline comedian with opening acts like Drew Carey, Rosie O'Donnell, and Dennis Miller? Yet he walked away from a flourishing stand-up career to pursue his true purpose and passion. Considered his high school's 'Least Likely to Succeed', Rizzo didn't give himself much of a chance. Years of negativity had led Steve to believe that dreams were the luxury of only a fortunate few.
After high school, Steve surprised everyone, including himself, by excelling with honors at the university and post-graduate levels; eventually even teaching at his old high school. Perhaps the most unexpected aspect of Steve's career was the stellar degree of success he achieved as a performer. However, he walked away from his promising career as a headline comedian to become a professional speaker, and he now offers a unique and insightful perspective on the journey that brought him to where he stands today.
As Steve's friend and fellow comic Drew Carey says, "He used to be a stand-up comic, but now he is a speaker who is inspiring people all over the world."
