Are you Fully Convinced?

If we don’t know what our problem is, then we have a real problem! This is a book and course that will help us recognize, in a deeper way, the importance of prioritizing our beliefs as the key to breakthrough and seeing our dreams fulfilled.

It will help many overcome what I call the epidemic of negative emotions that result from believing lies.

Course Details

I'm Steve Backlund, and I invite you to join me and the Igniting Hope team beginning June 5th as we spend 8 weeks going through my most important book yet, Fully Convinced.

There will be weekly live calls with my team, live Q&A sessions with me, video teachings, podcasts, and access to the ebook version of my book, Fully Convinced.

We'd love to have you be a part of this catalytic course. We are only offering it live once this year, and believe it will be a game-changer.
