Steve Lowisz leaned back in his rugged basement chair, looking up at the ceiling as he pondered his next move. After cashing out his 401k, maxing out more than one credit card, and racking up his fair share of debt, the options were looking slim. Just as he leaned forward, the phone rang.

Another client, another research opportunity....Perhaps one more credit card wouldn’t hurt.

The road for Steve Lowisz has been anything but smooth-sailing. As an entirely self-made entrepreneur, Steve might have enough passion and determination to set the world on fire.
 
I felt that I could do the industry better than the industry was doing itself


Steve declared in his typically straightforward manner. Perhaps he was right: his research and recruiting firm grew so quickly that it moved four times in the first 20 months.

 
Upon increasing the number of models and brands available, Steve is now CEO of six separate companies. His corporations now offer research, recruiting, competitive intelligence, HR expertise, education, and various other services across the globe. Project locations include Eastern and Western Europe, South America, China, South Korea, and numerous other nations.
 
As for the boss himself, Steve enjoys speaking on the topics of HR education, entrepreneurship, and business development. His expertise comes from the School of Hard Knocks.

I started from zero. I’ve had all the successes and failures that an entrepreneur should have. It was sweat and tears – I put everything at risk.
Perhaps it is his story that interests fellow entrepreneurs across the globe; on the other hand, one could attribute it to his unconventional, sometimes brazen style. As an assertive, bold, and authentic teacher, there is no opinion that Steve will not share under the lights. One audience member described him as an “Engaging motivating, great speaker” who “says things we are all thinking” (SHRM Talent Management Conference). Others describe his teaching as “the best training I have ever had in my 15 years of recruiting” (Sr. Recruiter, Coca Cola Refreshment).
Remaining true to his character, Steve does not plan to slow down from here. As his corporations continue to expand and his expertise deepens, he strives to strengthen and develop the next generation of entrepreneurs through training, education, and authorship.

“It’s my passion,” Steve said. “I see a need in today’s business climate, and I’m ready to share some solutions.”
