Whether you need to motivate your sales & service team, improve employee morale, instill strong leadership skills, deal with stress, or embrace change- then Steve Rizzo’s “Common Sense Success Strategies” will take your audience to the next level. As one of his clients said, “Never has my group learned so much and laughed so hard in one sitting!”
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, Steve 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 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, to discover more joy and enthusiasm, increased productivity and 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 has made him a member of prestigious Speakers Hall of Fame—an honor bestowed on fewer than 300 speakers worldwide since 1977.
Steve is the author of the bestselling books Motivate THIS! and Get Your SHIFT Together. He is also a regular contributor for SUCCESS magazine and often called upon as the “go-to” guy on the topic of personal and professional development for many network, cable and radio media outlets.

The biggest challenge people in sales face today is staying optimistic and motivated to be at their best for more than just a few days.
“Nothing keeps salespeople from being productive and achieving their sales goals more than harboring negative feelings or having a bad attitude during the process.” – Steve Rizzo

It provides them with a foundation to stand on when the nuts and bolts fail and the ratio of “Nos” outweighs the “Yeses.”

– For Education Groups –
After being told by a guidance counselor that he didn’t have the intelligence to make it through college and then being saddled with the dubious high school honor of “Least Likely to Succeed,” Steve Rizzo didn’t give himself much of a chance to emerge as anything special, much less an honors college graduate, a teacher, a counselor for students with behavioral problems, a national headline comedian, an author and a Hall of Fame Speaker.
Steve teaches educators how to acquire the attitude they need to achieve their goals in and out of the classroom while actually enjoying the process! “Enjoyment is the spark that ignites passion and enthusiasm,” Steve says. “Teaching without passion and enthusiasm is merely going through the motions. Passion and enthusiasm give you the strength to go the extra mile that could make a difference in a young person’s life.”
Let Steve show your group how to perform and deliver far beyond their expectations, individually and as a team.
