ABOUT STEVE

Steve is an entrepreneur, leader, and innovator with a passion for business, science, and adventure. After leaving school at 14 and early success in sales, he started ZAG Group at 19. From a $500 credit card, he grew the firm to 5 million in annual sales in less than 5 years, a decade later the firm had 135 global staff and 40 million in yearly revenue.

In 2005, he was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer for which there was no treatment, cure or survivors past a few years. Steve traveled the world in pursuit of a cure and building a team of top researchers and clinicians from universities, such as Yale, Stanford, and Harvard, he formed the TLC Foundation. They explored the cutting edge of mind-body and alternative medicine, including the emerging field of Psychoneuroimmunology and he focused on finding a solution through mastering health, the inner journey, and living a life of epic joy.

He also dedicated his life to serving others: mentoring at-risk youth and

entrepreneurs, feeding the homeless, and led a project to bring clean water to 3,000 people in Lesotho, Africa. He started Adventure2Advance – summiting Mount Everest raising $100,000 for at-risk youth.

Today, 9 years later, after receiving no treatment, he is alive and well with, miraculously, no trace of his diagnosis. Steve has recently finished a book about his journey and is back at ZAG, driving with passion and purpose, focused on developing a global group of companies that enhance the way people experience and enjoy their lives.

Steve lives life to the fullest with achievements including numerous awards and becoming an author, public speaker, poet, singer, songwriter, artist, pilot, extreme sportsman, mountain climber, and soon to be, Ironman and astronaut. He also reads 25-50 books every year and has taken time to go back and attend Harvard Business School and MIT.

Perception Medicine

OVERCOMING THE IMPOSSIBLE: From Death-Sentence Diagnosis to the Healing Power of Perception Medicine

Overcoming the Impossible shares Steve’s experience of ignoring the signs that his life – as well as his mind, mind, and spirit – were out of balance, which led to a diagnosis of terminal Stage 4 cancer at the age of 25. Unwilling to accept the verdict or subject his body to the chemical forces of Western medicine that promised only to help manage and not to heal – with debilitating side effects – he shares his astonishing journey to find a cure for the incurable. The result: full regression of the disease with no treatment and the transformation of his life to one of exuberance, adventure, openness, and business success.

Steve resolved to go to the edge of science, philosophy, psychology, medicine, and even mysticism to answer the question of what part of him was controlling his body’s biological systems and whether he could influence their programming.

His search for answers took him from the summit of Mt. Everest to the mechanisms that trigger the body’s inflammatory responses, from the latest research on the effects of meditation to new advancements in the emerging field of psychoneuroimmunology. He also highlights instances of remarkable healing and mind-over-matter achievements, including the fast-wound-healing rituals of Sufis, loincloth-clad monks melting snow in the Himalayas, the incredible endurance feats of Vim de Hof, and much more.

For Steve it’s a story about choice, the choices behind who we are today and those that will shape who we want to become tomorrow. As he writes, “Health is not a process or a destination. It is a way of being.” He has distilled his experience into a ten-step healing program that he believes can potentially reverse even the most serious of physical conditions.

“Let the friction of your fear be the wind
that gives your dreams flight”
