Work Hard Play Harder
For those of you who don’t already know me, my name is Robert (Rob), and business is my life. I’ve successfully owned four businesses so far with two of them now sold, and I have no plans of slowing down any time soon.
Through my 27+ years working in IT, 15+ years working in digital marketing and e-commerce, I have seen it all. And I mean it all.
From mates hiring mates as a cheap business avenue to dodgy dealings and confuddled business plans, there is no expense of ways that businesses can bring on their own demise. But, for every poor business decision and strategy, I have also seen how the right choices can bring on immeasurable success.
I’ve helped bring businesses out of the dumps with a few savvy choices, and I’m not shy of being tough when people and companies need to be put in their place. I’m rough, brash and bold when it’s needed. But I’m also kind, caring and respectful to those that I work with. Where I envision a successful result, I will always ask you to chase your ideas, and I never shy away from a challenge unless the end seems fruitless.
This attitude has allowed me to drive success in everything I do, and I will continue to carry it with me through every business owner I work with.
