“My life thus far has been full of a wide array of experiences and personal interactions with powerful leaders who are simply great folks,” explained Steenberge. “The fun part for me is that through my work, my passion for travel and sharing with others, I’ve been able to get to some fabulous places around the globe with these individuals and their teams.
“Now, these highly accomplished yet humble mentors are happily sharing their journeys and their passion. Everything of worth that I’ve been able to accomplish in my life has been due in large part to the team members with whom I’ve had the chance to work, to explore, to compete and to enjoy. I’ve also been extremely blessed over the decades to have been led and inspired by passionate mentors, by coaches who exhibit and share their unwavering commitment to success.
“I believe that now, more than ever, we’re in need of superior leaders and selfless team members who are willing to serve our fellow men and women, to live each day with great passion to overcome adversity and to motivate others to do the same. And to do it with a sense of joy and gratitude.”
