Ep 3: Lessons from a Father with Steve Corbin

In part three of our three-part introduction series, Steve Corbin, my step-father joins me to share some of the lessons he has learned from his years in the music industry and as an entrepreneur. 

Born in Germany into a military family, Steve spent his young life moving around. After starting in a record store during a not so impressive college experience, Steve worked hard, applied himself, and eventually worked his way through the roles and ranks of the music industry to become Sr. VP of Sales, Council, and Culture at Warner Music. He is also the CEO of Lupo Entertainment, a consulting firm that works with up and coming artists.

Everyone walks a different path, but the greatest Standouts, in any industry, have a few things in common. They can learn and go beyond the boundary of their position. Whether it is an artist like P-Diddy who has a work ethic determined to outwork everyone else in the room or like Steve himself, committed to understanding every aspect that touches his role, however remote, a true standout isn’t tethered by the boundaries of a title. Working hard, learning everything you can, and teaching others along the way are the cornerstones a Standout life is built on.

Find your path, explore, and cast a wide net in the industry you are interested in, and learn everything you can. It is what will set you apart. Work smart, work hard, and be strategic about how you pursue growth. Seek to understand and to make those around you successful. Always do a little more than is expected of you. Be humble, be confident, and never stop asking questions.

In parting, Steve has some invaluable advice: Focus on what is important now. You take the lessons you learn from others – incorporate them or do them differently. Empower people to make decisions and understand that you can give advice, and they may not take it right away, but it may have an impact down the road. Never stop learning and always take it one step further than you have to. 


Rise. Shine. Impact. Your extra makes the difference.
