Relationships. Confidence. Leadership. Happiness. Success.
For things such as these, purpose is more than just a part of the foundation, it’s the very cornerstone on which they are built.
Wherever you are on your journey…
Whether you’re taking your very first steps toward creating a life for yourself, or ready to make a change because your life’s no longer working, you’ve come to the right place.
Simply put, purpose is the reason for which something exists.
The desire for each of us to identify our purpose is not only understandable, it’s vital. We all want to know that we matter; that we make a difference.
But what do we do when we discover that the way we feel on the inside, differs from the manner in which we’re living on the outside? How do we go from merely taking up space, to claiming our rightful place, in this world?

"How Does Music at Events Affect People's Behavior?"
By Louise Nornes
Enjoying a little bit of the great outdoors at Willow River State Park, in beautiful Hudson, Wisconsin. Here I am at the Falls, and despite a couple of close calls, I never went in the drink.
When we hired Steve to handle our entertainment and MC duties, we didn’t know what to expect. Now after 9 years of hosting our event, our guests request his presence and his talents come in a close second only to the fireworks. Steve’s professionalism, humor, and overall personality has made him vital in the success of our event. It would be difficult, if not impossible to do this event without him.

Steve was great to work with. He listened to my ideas and what I wanted. He was organized, creative, and funny! I would recommend him for future events!

Steve, thanks for the awesome work you do. Your playlist for our wedding was way better than we expected. You have a great knack for public speaking, and an amazing style that fits all ages. Kudos to you for the great music list & memories on our special day.

As a talk radio personality, one thing I’m good at is talking. Unfortunately, one of my areas where I lack abilities, is to put into words what I’m thinking. While working on a new bio, and updating my website, I quickly realized that I needed help. One of the only people I choose to work with when it comes to creative writing, is Steve Hanson from Hanson Creative Services. Steve sat with me with pen and paper in hand and started to explore my vision. He looked at my past work, and had a few questions, and within 24 hours, he established a rough draft. To say I was pleased with his work would be an understatement. He articulated myself and my program brilliantly. I couldn’t recommend enough the services of Steve Hanson and Hanson Creative Services.

I was amazed how adding music to fireworks changed the whole show. It was by far the most exciting show I have seen. Steve did a fantastic job of entertaining an all-ages crowd. Great time!

Steve was referred to us by a friend for our wedding music. We gave him a list of songs for the pre-wedding, wedding and reception. Steve did a fantastic job mixing our songs, with a few of his suggestions. The songs had a natural flow from one song to the next as well as favorites for all age groups. He did an amazing job interacting with our guests throughout the day. He is very personable and accommodating. I highly recommend Steve for your future event.

The drive to Thunder Over Elk Creek was almost two hours, one way. I'm so glad we made the trip. Steve was the announcer pre- and post-show, and did a wonderful job. He was extremely funny, and had great interaction with the crowd. Also, the production of the music synched up with the fireworks was absolutely amazing. Well worth the drive.
