We had the good fortune of connecting with Goodness Steve and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Steve, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
Bliss Planet is committed to helping people feel their best. When people feel great, they are generally kinder and have a greater sense of connection to all life and the planet. Every happy person has the potential to positively influence countless others. We contribute to the world by providing an innovative wellness course and other educational services and tools for optimal wellness all at no cost, along with a platform for compassionate, wellness-minded individuals to unite.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m excited for this grand adventure called life and to leave a legacy to help others with Bliss Planet.

I found it a challenge to be in a good state physically, mentally and spiritually for years as I suffered daily from a painful condition called Spasmodic Torticollis. I would experience painful neck spasms much of the day. I implemented positivity and wellness to a level where the pain I encounter is minor and wear comfortable neck support much of the time. My experience with pain led me to understand how precious this grand adventure called life truly is. It motivated me with the help of my father, a retired medical doctor and nutritionist, to create an innovative wellness course to help people feel their best. Bliss Planet, the wellness course and my level of zest for life would not exist today if not for the pain I endured along my wellness journey.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If I was to co-create a yummy week here are some of the ingredients for my Delicious Day Recipes:

Electric scooter play around Tempe Town lake. I feel it’s important to let the inner child out to play every day and scooter fun is one of my favorite ways to do that.

Incorporating nature play is a regular activity for me as I find it healthy and enjoyable. Camping in Prescott, Flagstaff, and Sedona are a few of my favorite places to embrace nature in Arizona. Planet Fitness facilities are in the area for a quick workout, shower, and hydro massage while allowing a guest to enjoy their facilities as well. I enjoy the food, drinks, and atmosphere at Chocolatree, a plant-based restaurant, and community in Sedona, on most Sedona visits.

First Friday Play at downtown Phoenix starting with a free visit to the Phoenix Art Museum. I take my scooter and use the bike lane to explore the streets of entertainment. A drum circle, art, music, and food and craft trucks are scattered throughout the streets. There is also Spin scooters to rent with their app scattered around if you don’t have a scooter or bike. Plenty of parking is at the main central library downtown which is just a short walk to the First Friday fun. And after scooter play on Roosevelt street, I enjoy The Pemberton which is an outdoor entertainment collective in downtown Phoenix.

I would include an outdoor movie adventure at Westwind Drive-In that includes enjoying a double feature from the comfort of my van’s full-sized bed with the doors open.

A sunset ride on electric scooters along the Hayden Greenbelt is a must.

Sunday mornings I enjoy drum play at Drum Church with Andrew Ecker and Monica Patton of Drumming Sounds at Roadrunner Park. This park also has a Farmers Market on the weekends along with a nice pond to watch happy ducks.

My favorite restaurants are generally plant-based such as The Giving Tree Cafe, Green, and The Loving Hut, but also find many dishes I appreciate at Pei Wei, Flower Child, Pita Jungle, and Scrumptious in Scottsdale.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My parents have been very supportive and I’m grateful to have many wonderful friends that feed my inspiration.

I found an interview I had with Wayne Dyer delightfully inspiring and transformational. He was my favorite author, and I would enjoy listening to his CDs in the car regularly. I found myself in a deep state of peace just moments into the interview as if his calm energy benefited me. Ever since… I desire to be in a blissful state energetically around others to benefit them as Wayne Dyer was to me.
