Have you ever felt like your chances for success were stacked against you? Ever been told you were a loser and will never make it big? Tonight, we show you how to turn it all around and show you how no matter the odds, you can truly make it big!
That’s a preview of the July 21 episode of CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. Among the experts on turning things around: Steve Rizzo, former stand-up comedian turned in-demand inspirational speaker.
Steve was told by a guidance counselor in high school that he didn’t have the intelligence for college, AND had the dubious high school honor of being named “Least Likely to Succeed.”
“Looking back,” says Steve, “I can see how and why I sabotaged so many opportunities. My perceived limitations had me very confused. I had a fear of failure and a fear of success. I knew I had talent, but I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t being given a chance. I finally realized that opportunity had been knocking all along… I was just afraid to open the door.”
Now Steve is one of the most in-demand motivational speakers on the circuit, sharing what he calls “Rizzo’s Secrets” to achieving success with an unstoppable attitude for life. With his straightforward New York attitude, Steve wakes up audiences and inspires them with his life-changing personal growth strategies and, of course, lots of laughter!
