220. Steven Fielding – Learning from Adversity

Sitting down with Lance today for the Fit For Service Wednesday special, we have a fellow brother from Aubrey Marcus’ Fit for Service Fellowship, Steven Fielding. Steven is an experienced marketing and strategic communications professional with over 25 years’ experience. He currently serves as the Director of Content Strategy and Community Engagement at SAP Concur. Steven is an avid photographer and was also an executive producer on the web series, Business & Burgers. Since the Coronavirus pandemic shut down schools, Steven is homeschooling his two sons. This in itself has brought some challenges and also some lessons for all. Tune in to hear Steven share with Lance his life story, his struggles as a kid in boarding school and how his relationship with his parents spilled into his personal relationships. 


Steven answers with, “This too shall pass.  Give yourself some breathing room.”
