Our SHERO: Steven M. Egna

Introducing our PALETTE SHEROES

We have a little something at Palette we call a SHERO, which is a member or other community partner who is able to help out with the financial side of membership. If you’re reading this, you’re in exactly the right place to meet an amazing individual who is committed to helping others to learn and grow. We’re so pleased to introduce you to Steve Egna!


Tell us who you are and what is your business. What is your business’s mission?
I am just a simple soul trying to help others. Our mission is to provide business owners solutions for their challenges as well as assisting in accessing opportunities. The backbone of our work is valuing privately owned businesses which provides us with the foundation to support business owners’ goals.


Why did you decide to become a Palette SHERO?
To learn more from others here and share my experience and time to support the Palette community in achieving their goals, individually and collectively.


Why is giving back important to you?
A lot of what I have accomplished to date was enabled by others who shared their knowledge, experience, and especially their time. I have and will continue to “pay it forward.”


What’s the best (or worst) advice you’ve ever gotten?
Crazy question—so much good and some bad along the way—no one is best. A few that stuck with me though are take care of you, so you can take care of others who need it; maintain a good sense of humor; and make sure to be liberal with your pats-on-the-back hugs!


Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Time is our most valuable asset—and here is one of my favorite quotes: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs, commencement speech at Stanford, June 16, 2005

And learn from yesterday, act today, plan for tomorrow.
