Hello, I’m Ricky Steele. I am an author, networker, and host of the Booth 61 show on Business Radio X. For over 35 years I have been active in the Atlanta community building relationships through business, community service, associations, and my personal faith journey. My philosophy in both business and my personal life is simple, I believe that by serving others and living by Golden Rule, you will bring value to your community, your profession, and your life.
My first book The Heart of Networking was published in 2005. The Heart of Networking Second Edition was published in 2011. Both books detail my life experiences and outline the principles that have brought me whatever success I have achieved. I speak regularly on the topic of servant leadership for groups all over the country. Whether my audience is a small community group or a large university, I love the opportunity to share my story with others, and learn from their experiences as well. Reviews about the book can be found here.
In my personal life, I have been married for 35 years and have 3 wonderful children and 1 amazing son in-law. Perhaps best of all is I am a grandfather to a two beautiful young ladies who I love both dearly, Sophia and Zoe. I’m quite active in my community and serve in a number of leadership positions. I serve on the Board of Councilors of The Carter Center, Board of Advisers of Atlanta’s Table (a program of The Atlanta Community Food Bank), and the Executive Cabinet of United Way’s ITUnited. I am a proud alumnus of Leadership Atlanta 1986 and Leadership Georgia 1987.
