We had the good fortune of connecting with Steve and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Steve, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
Learning to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations. My line of work is filled with fraught situations and learning how to adapt and adjust to those changes has been essential and critical to having success. Often a client will present you just a piece of the picture and sometimes after you have gone all the way into it you realize that the full picture is nothing like the piece that you started off with.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My business is Morrow Detective Agency, we are private investigation firm based in Southern California. I started my company during the recession after being layed off from two agencies who were having a challenge keeping investitgators busy. I started my business on a shoe string budget and had to try and get the ball moving fairly quickly because at the time I had two little boys that needed to be provided for. In my career I have been able to assist many people in finding their biological family members including my ex wife, I wrote an article about her experience and how it impacted my family’s life. I have been able to help get the wrongfully accused out of trouble and also have helped locate children that were wrongfully taken. This profession has allowed for me to witness the absolute best and worst in people and has challenged me in a way mentally that I never thought would be possible. My appreciation for God and people has amplified by the stories that I have been blessed to be apart of.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would start with going to San Diego and showing them La Jolla Cove, it’s absolutely beautiful. I would follow that up with a trip to Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles. I would take them to Runyon Canyon so that they could experience the beautiful California hillside. I would take them to Griffith Park Observatory and also down iconic Sunset Blvd. And if they were really up for an adventure I would take them by the Hotel Cecil as well.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First and foremost my thanks goes to the most high, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, without him none of this would have been possible. I would also like to thank Walter Mosely for writing about a detective ( Easy Rawlins) that looked like me, who would have thought that reading Devil in a Blue Dress would have set up a whole career. I would like to thank Hal Lipset for writing The Bug In The Martini Olive which also ignited a young kids ambition.
