Career Counseling Flagstaff AZ
Ten years ago, Steve Darden headed a great organization in Gallup, N.M., that fights substance abuse in Steve’s native Navajo nation. His wife, Rose Darden, was staying at home with their three sons and also pursuing a master’s degree. “I was making the highest income I ever had in my life,” Steve recalls. But his long hours in the office and weekends full of speaking engagements were taking a toll on his family.
Steve’s Moment of Truth
Steve’s moment of reckoning came through his youngest son, Seth. The boy woke up from a nightmare one weeknight saying, “Where is my Dad? I want my Dad!” Steve, who had lost his father in the Korean War when he was just three months old, didn’t want his sons missing out on time with their father like he had: “I was being a father, not a daddy. I was being a provider, not a husband.”
Steve decided that he had to leave his job . “My wife asked me ‘What are we going to do?’ I honestly did not have a response. I just knew that I had to change my life .”
Open for Business
Combining their talents and skills, Steve and Rose created a four-part business called Success and Directions Enterprises. The various parts of the business involve a wide variety of sometimes unrelated products and services, including consulting, real estate investment, public speaking, creating art, and multi-level marketing.
Steve and Rose credit planning with their ability to balance so many business activities without being overwhelmed.
