And For the past several years, Steve has been a familiar face and voice to Southern Californians as an entertainment correspondent, and TV weather and traffic reporter.

Recently, Steve was tapped by Sirius Satellite Radio to write, produce and edit a documentary special for the California's Women's Conference, interviewing such attendees as California First Lady Maria Shriver, Duchess Sarah Ferguson, and his holiness The Dalai Lama, to name a few.

"Stop Waiting For Permission" is the book that takes the question asked by millions of people around the world every day, "Why aren't I happy?" and answers it. A bold statement, until you realize that as a certified Hypnotherapist, Life Coach, and TV and Radio host in the life empowerment field, I have dedicated most of my waking life to that question exhaustively meeting and conversing with, reading letters and hearing from, and helping scores of people who all battle with the same demon: A feeling of being "incomplete." By addressing the 'No's' people come from in life, I have found a fresh, new and lasting approach to real enlightenment down to the deepest unconscious level, and Stop Waiting For Permission! takes you there..
