Steve Harvey may have just lost two high-profile jobs, but he's more than willing to help would-be entrepreneurs launch their own careers — for a price.

The now-former talk show host is presenting a weekend "empowerment conference," RadarOnline.com has learned, ironically at a hotel on Universal Studio's property, just steps away from his now shuttered studio.

The Vault Conference is "powered by Harvey" and bills itself as a "learning hub for future leaders, entrepreneurs, and corporate visionaries."

Throughout the weekend, speakers like Judy A. Smith, the real-life inspiration behind the show Scandal, and former NBA baller-turned-businessman Al Harrington will offer their own advice to help others succeed.

"Our mission is to empower these trailblazers to become their best selves," the website promises. "As a go-getter on the fast track to reach your ambitious goals, this conference serves as the catalyst to inspire, educate, mentor and equip you to design your personalized success map around your career, business, finances and more."

Maybe Steve will want to ask for some advice of his own. As Radar readers know, the 62-year-old suffered back-to-back sacks last week, first when his self-titled talk show was axed by NBC, and then, just two days later, he learned that Melissa McCarthy will replace him as the new host of Little Big Shots when it returns to NBC in early 2020.

That leaves the once-busy businessman as the host of just the syndicated game show Family Feud and ABC's summer Celebrity Family Feud.

As Radar reported, rising star Kelly Clarkson will take over Steve's old NBC time slot.

"It's done for good," a source told Radar about the future of Steve. "It's not coming back, ever."
