Today’s guest knows the power of mentorship and self-development.

He started his first company right out of college in advertising.  He eventually pivoted from advertising into technology and now is a business automation consultant. He is big on self-development and loves to inspire people to get out of their comfort zone, through speaking engagements or coaching and mentoring.

He is a master connector with over 17,000 contacts on his phone and over 13,000 connections on LinkedIn. He contributes much of his successes to a strong work ethic, a can-do, never-quit attitude, discipline, integrity, and fearlessness that he cultivated in the martial arts. He does a LinkedIn Live broadcast every week called the Master Connections Series.

Please join me in welcoming Steve Spiro.

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “My leadership is a work in progress. Leaders empower and develop people instead of managing them.”
  • the two biggest sources of his experience; working at his dad’s store and karate.
  • his experience not being the guy that was picked for things and how that contributed to his growth and his empathy.
  • how he reinvented himself at camp because he had the freedom of being around people that didn’t know him.
  • his education experience and his shift from childhood anonymity to being a master connector.
  • a life-changing trip to Ireland during his advertising career and how he met his mentor (his GPS).
  • understanding the impact of relationships and connections.
    his deep mission for wanting to impact others.
  • solid advice for how to get started with any mentor.
  • the difference between coach & mentor.
  • how he nurtures and sustains his vast network.
