Overview

No Off Season

As a child, Steve Jones was taught to work hard for what

he wanted. From shining shoes on street corners to earn a few

dollars or pushing through numerous injuries in the football

field, Steve understands what it means to persevere beyond your

circumstances. In No Off Season, Steve shares the story of his life

and all of the success and failures it’s made up of. Despite the

roadblocks Steve faced, he never gave up and worked harder and

longer than anyone else. Today, because of that mentality, Steve

is the highly successful CEO of Allied Universal. Sometimes this

life deals you setbacks and puts you on a path other than the one

you intended to walk. When that happens, the only thing you can

do is to put your head down and keep working through. No Off

Season can help you learn that failure is not the end of the world,

it is the opportunity to recalibrate yourself and become better.
