Lead Like a Marine welcomes Mr Steve Hoeft. Steve once told me a way that I can easily remember how to correctly pronounce his name... it's just like sliding into home plate... "SAFE". Easy to remember. Steve served in the United States Marine Corps from 1997 to 2001 and achieved the rank of SSgt. Steve serves as the regional member coordinator for Trust Vets. Steve is a consultant, trainer and coach to companies large and small on the areas of sales and leadership. You are going to love this interview! He shares some sage wisdom for service members looking to transition as well as for those who may have already made the transition into the civilian marketplace.
