Steve Harvey wasn't always the successful comedian fans have grown to love – he had to make some tough choices along the way to get to where he is now.
One thing is for sure, the best-selling author knew he belonged on TV, but he just didn't know how to actually get there.
Growing up, "I had a stuttering problem, and I was from the 'hood.' " the Little Big Shots host tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. He was a 28-year-old college dropout who was working as an insurance salesman, but that didn't stop him from trying standup for the first time.

Steve Harvey's life is a rags-to-riches tale – but there's no fairy godmother or anonymous benefactor, just integrity, ingenuity and success.
Harvey tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story that while he's now amassed an empire estimated to be worth $100 million, he was once homeless and living out of his Ford Tempo.
"It kills me when I hear very successful people say, 'I always knew I would get here,' " he says. "I didn't. I always hoped I would get somewhere, but this is above and beyond. My imagination didn't even go this big."
