How I Conquered My Learning Disability

  I’ve always been unbelievably bad at academia. My ninth grade report card was Ds and Fs. I failed out of high school my senior year and had to go to continuation school. I just couldn’t focus nor find interest in most subjects that didn’t involve reading about fun things.

The first college I attended, I took 2 classes. I earned a D and an F. The next college I went to, I ended up failing out of as well.

I enlisted in the military after getting a VERY high score on the ASVAB, the test measuring aptitude for military jobs. In military technical school, I learned bomber avionic fundamentals and was reprimanded several times for failing tests. I came as close as you possibly can to failing out of school yet again, but barely passed.

I had a learning disability. A processing disorder that doesn’t let me connect things like a “normal” person. My brain and attention LITERALLY shut off within 40 seconds if I am not completely involved in what I am doing. You can imagine how delightful this is for relationships and jobs.

My instructors constantly made fun of me, a pool was set up so they could bet on when I would fail out, and my eventual supervisors told me I was the dumbest person they had ever met, and that I was wasting my time going back to college during active duty.

I refocused on my studies, and realized something. Once I had a goal (you have to have a degree to become an officer), I could focus and learn.

My goal to become an Air Force Officer outweighed my limited attention span.

I ended up moving to SD and was hired as an Engineering teacher.

Let’s stop for a minute and consider this. I never passed Pre-Algebra. Never took my SATs, never got an Engineering degree and now I’m going to teach it to high school kids??

I then figured out that by reading the curriculum heavily, creating the projects first, and then making diagrams, that this stuff was doable.

I ended up getting my Masters and then a Doctorate in Education. What changed?

The way that I learned.

I used my learning teams more. Drew diagrams for everything. Asked more questions. Balanced my own happiness into my studies by working out, listening to comedy and hanging out with my funniest friends.

This is a diagram I drew. 

Yes, there’s a minotaur surfing. Yes there’s a talking shark. Jet plane and pine trees. This diagram shows the doctoral path and kept me in the right mindset to finish. Childish? Yes. Idiotic? Possibly. Tell that to the 50% of people that let their stress levels get high enough so they quit the program. Maybe everyone should be drawing minotaurs.

I knew that establishing my “Why” early on would help keep me focused during the tough times that break most people.

What was my Why?

If I could finish a Doctorate, I could inspire thousands that ANYTHING is possible.

I was conferred on Oct 19th, 2013 after 6.5 years of hell. Foreclosure notices, no money, no loans left, a relationship ending, and sometimes eating tuna fish on moldy bread. I took a picture of this day to remind me that things WOULD get better.

The final test of these techniques, my mental black belt, if you will, came when my boss in the Reserves said that they were sending me to military tactical data links school.

Imagine computer networking design………

For EVERY piece of military equipment in the US arsenal in EVERY branch of service.
I was more than terrified, but I signed up. These are two standard diagrams I found online.

I can actually read and understand these. Seriously. 

I went to the Joint Interoperability Center at Ft Bragg for the Basic Tactical Data Links Course.

Vets from all four branches of service were there, plus civilian defense contractors. I immediately realized on Day 1, that I would have to use every damn trick I knew and invented a few new ones. The basic course was a week long, one test at the end. It covered about 1200 pages of material. Eight hours a day. 122 slide Powerpoints from instructors that literally traveled the world teaching this stuff.

Here is how I did it:
1. Establish why. (This training pays a LOT on the outside/its necessary for my military requirements/if I fail, I go back to the unit with stigma)

2. Accurately assess the situation:
*Most everyone was Active Duty and had experience working with these systems for YEARS. I was a Reservist in uniform 36 days a year, and have NEVER worked with any of this stuff. I’m learning this stuff from scratch.

*Learning disability that tunes out anyone that starts lecturing after 40 seconds.

*This stuff is LEGIT hard. Its an unbelievable firehose of systems, programming, military operational orders written in a condensed format and more.

*Oh great, I not only have to learn Air Force, but Army, Marines, Navy, Foreign Service setups and more.

*I’m a speed learning expert. I have written a book on it, lectured in colleges, and teach PhD students how to use my techniques to crush their programs.

*I don’t have the limitations of soft ass people. I can give up basic comforts, devote HOURS a night and early morning to study, and have a work ethic that drops most people.

*I have the diligence of a complete psychopath. I take freezing cold showers daily, and once I have a committed desire for success, I cannot be denied.

*I have read Limitless obsessively and have also brought safe and natural brain drugs with me.

*I know how to supercharge my intelligence into a high learning state (jumping jacks plus cold shower plus brain drugs plus no breakfast plus about 100mg of caffeine)

I passed.

Then they upped the ante. The Advanced Course was legendary because it was something like 8 tests in two weeks covering everything from basic plus a TON of new content plus a group presentation. Fail two tests in a row and you’re gone. Fail any two tests in the series and you’re gone.

Bring it.

I was motivated walking around Bragg seeing Green Berets, Rangers and conventional Army doing PT at 5am in huge formations.

I buckled down. We formed study groups. I committed 3-5 hours a day studying EVERY DAY. Weekend off? I studied 8-10 hours a day. I drew diagrams, I made lists, I asked instructors about difficult concepts. I found Marines that were experts and pinged them for knowledge.

I created a ritual for tests, instead of fearing test day, I aggressively charged in. I didn’t engage in any of the negative comments many others did, didn’t complain, just took cold showers, studied and loudly played Paradise City by Guns and Roses when driving to school.

I passed all my tests first time. Then I got the call. “You’re signed up for the Planner’s Course. It’s harder than Advanced but you’ll be ok, you have a Doctorate.”

If Advanced was a nightmare, Planner’s Course was tactical damnation.

Not only would I have to take everything I had learned, I would have to pass a series of tests at high levels of comprehension at the PLANNING level. Our curriculum involved taking EVERY system from all four branches and creating a network architecture for a full scale multinational war.

In two weeks. So not only did we have to study like animals for all our tests, we had to plan a war, and create an OPTASKLINK for the whole thing. The OPTASKLINK is the document that lists every system in use and how they are connected. Its considered the hardest technical document in the entire project. Guess who had to write this 6-9 page monstrosity?

This is one page of an OPTASKLINK. It was created by the Devil. 

I asked for the damn thing. If I’m going down in flames, I’m going HARD.

I tapped my team more, drew HUGE diagrams on dry erase boards, even Googling topics that weren’t clear. I didn’t drink, barely had time to work out, just OBSESSIVELY got into it, FELT the process and grew.

We passed. Our presentation was strong, not perfect but strong. I got about 88% of the OPTASKLINK finished which is considered damn near Herculean for one guy. Our instructor caught me in the hallway and commended me for how much I got done.

I came back from Bragg with three certificates in tactical data links and something else I had never known:

How Entrepreneurs Can Bend Reality to Create Success

Strap in. This will be a journey. If you are reading this, you are an entrepreneur, a business owner, coach or healthy skeptic. All are welcome at the lavish feast at Dr. Rob’s table.

I’ll start with a very powerful framing sentence:

Your life is a result of your choices.

Read that again.

It’s ALL because of your decisions, choices, and alliances.
Your home. Your relationship. Your job. Your education. Your income. Your day to day. Your fitness. Your BFFs.

ALL are derived from your choices.

That being said, if you are dissatisfied with an aspect of your life, you can rethink your choices towards it to a better outcome. Think of it as re-rolling the dice.

Your universe is comprised of YOUR CHOICES

Now let’s apply this to the entrepreneurial platform. Entrepreneurs fundamentally don’t change. There are three things that are keeping them from their greatest levels of success in the early years.




Luckily for you guys, I teach strategies for all three. This will be one of the most valuable articles you will ever read. I don’t say that to brag, I say it because I’m going to hand you a $2k strategy to BEND YOUR BUSINESS REALITY.

Why? Because I am a trusted figure in advanced business coaching and I am grateful to my audience, clients and friends. We all deserve to find a gold nugget in the middle of the week. Without further ado, here are three solutions to these areas.

Problem: Fear is keeping you from attracting wealth/approaching influencers/being open about your business

Desired Result: To be able to FREELY do what I want without my subconscious injecting fear/hesitation/IMAGINED outcomes into my mind

Reality Changing Action: On a piece of paper, write down these sentences and then either a T or F for true/false.

I am scared to reach out to rich/famous influencers

I am afraid my family will make fun of my business

I am terrified that people will judge me

I am scared of making money

My ideas/business will never be successful

Once you have done this, for anything you marked T, write down the WORST thing that could happen.

Guess what? None of it is that life shattering. Someone makes fun of you, a product or program launch gets low sales or you have a few people make shitty comments.

Who cares? THAT SHOULD NOT AFFECT YOUR BOTTOM LINE. Now that you have isolated your fears. I want you to RECOGNIZE and imagine them locked in a cage. They can no longer affect you UNLESS YOU LET THEM OUT OF THE CAGE.

Next: Exposure

Entrepreneurs will have to realize that they need exposure in several aspects to grow their business. I have been on TV, radio and 15+ podcasts because of what I am about to teach you. 

Problem: No one knows about you

Desired Result: People are DYING to talk to you, to collaborate, to feature you, to buy from you

Reality Changing Action: You need RESULTS BASED ACTIONS to create your own celebrity. Here are a few of my best strategies

Start with Desired Result and work backwards

HUGE FB PRESENCE---grow FB friends list to 3k minimum—have FB friends post about you—post in FB groups—contact people using Messenger with personal greetings

POPULAR FB GROUP—freebies OFTEN—promote members—ask friends to recruit for group—offer contests—share link on Linkedin and Twitter

LOCAL EXPOSURE—post in FB groups in your area—attend Meetup groups—get on local podcasts
Next: Productivity

Problem: You are wasting time that could be devoted to business. Easily distracted and letting people suck away time. Not enough hours in day

Desired Result: A SUPERCHARGED day in which my goals are outlined, allies chosen, weekly tasks defined and distractions mitigated

Reality Changing Action: Declare ONE day of excellence just to test this out. The night before you go to bed, write down what you want to achieve in your DOE. Then write down your general weekly goals (1-3). Remember that weekly goals are general and daily tasks are specific. For your DOE, you will NOT:

Engage in political discussions
Watch Reality TV or Sports
Read celebrity gossip
Let ANYONE burst in on FB messenger unless its business related (whatever wonderfully cute thing their baby or cat did today can wait)


Recruit powerful allies for your tribe/inner circle
Recruit for your FB group
Think of media sources you can appear on
Research FB groups to post in that create max impact
Personally reach out to 3-5 new friends on FB and introduce yourself
Recruit an influencer with a 3:1 value proposition (you offer 3x services for any favors asked)
Do a self analysis and find out what areas your business rates “weak” in. Its either income/exposure/fear/or quality of goods/services. Be honest with yourself and seek out experts to help.

That wraps up the Dr. Strange Business Challenge. By committing to these actions, you will DIRECTLY influence your business and sway reality into your favor.

If you liked this content, I have a new challenge for you. I want to work with you. I’d love to teach you my BEST content/tactics and strategies to help you get noticed, attract new clients, build a power team and more!

As always, wishing you the best,

How I Achieved 500 Percent Productivity and How You Can Too...............

Before you read this EPIC story, do me a favor. Please enter your email to the right to subscribe. I have FREE E-books, infographics, and a TON of great goodies I give away. I'd love to share these with you periodically. Thanks!! - Dr. Rob 

If you are reading this, you are CLEARLY a new friend. I have 26 subscribers as I write this. That will change today (Dec 29). The Tipping Point has been achieved. But that's another story.

To set the stage, I have been on a two week spree of INSANE growth. I have been waking up after sleeping for four hours and doing 12-15 hour days like nothing. Its pretty exciting when you see the results of 12 years of work finally. So sleeping four hours and waking up at 1230am to do this is not really unusual. The results WERE and that's why you are here.

The Situation:
I am an expert in speed learning/productivity. In order to gain proof of concept with my tribe, I wanted to conduct an experiment that would show people what habits multiply productivity and which ones MURDER it. Hence, the "Dr. Rob Hell Day Challenge."

The Rules:
Wake up naturally and complete a 16 task checklist by 6pm. The tasks are to be completed within an hour each and the entire thing has been designed for the following ratio:

76% tasks that create a PS (possible sale)
24% tasks that create E (exposure for my performance coaching, current 2 week business boot camp and my magazine SHIFT Advanced Life Design) SHIFT Magazine SuperCoach Issue Link

I decided to throw in a few challenges as well to see how they would add fun. You know, easy stuff like write an E-book from scratch, design it, and create the landing page and start selling it......DURING THE TRIAL. Throw in 2 free coaching calls I offered in the middle and it got interesting.
Checklist or "Why I don't have a girlfriend"

The Experience
My eyes pop awake at 12:30 am. DAMN. I have to follow through. I swing out of bed and take a cold shower. Remember when the cops sprayed down Rambo with that ice cold firehose water and he beat up 6 of them, fought off a 200 man National Guard Unit single-handedly and blew up a town? Ice cold water generates testosterone and puts your body in survival mode. For those new friends reading this, I take cold showers 7 days a week. 
Bad Idea

0130 - Sit down in front of computer. First post to Facebook. First task due at 0300. Stark Industries shirt selected because I AM TONY STARK. Minus the models, sports cars, mansion, self esteem, a mother's love etc..........
Oh You Poor Ignorant Bastard

0230 - This is AWESOME, coffee is kicking in and I'm going to KICK ASS. AMERICA!!!!

0400 - First video up. How to Balance a 9-5 and Your Side Hustle Plus Freebie 

0600 - I am blacking out and typing much slower. By this time I have written two posts, and made a custom video for a biz group. Still on task.

0630-0700 - Cheat nap. I sleep like I just ate a bowl of Valium flavored applesauce.

0900 - So delirious that I mix up days in my private Facebook group, First 30 ELITE. No one notices. I have stepped into a warp of the space time continuum and honestly think its a different day.

1100 - Going strong, tasks done on time. Fascinated with friends on FB that can devote 4 hours a day to arguing about Trump, pit bulls, Monsanto, things that they have no control of. 

1330 - First coaching call. Runs a little long, I am 1.5 hours ahead in my tasks so I allow it. Client tells me she got four sales the day after a strategy call. I am VERY happy. 

1500 - Have now made two videos, a blog post, several targeted FB posts and given away 3 freebies.

1600 - Power nap. Have a scary dream about cars driving backwards.

1630 - Second call. Start thinking about E-book concept while talking to client with AMAZING story.

1700 - Still working on E-book. Slightly behind schedule. Choose a pic for cover that will INFURIATE my graphic designer friends who let me know I have the design skills of a person fighting severe drug issues and possible Parkinson's. I start to tremble knowing I HAVE TO DESIGN THE DAMN LANDING PAGE, link to E-junkie and then do connection tests to make sure its working.

1730 - Third video created and posted. "Diagramming for Business" 

1800 - Time is up. Not finished, I'm going to ride this out. My clients deserve a coach that never effiin quits. 

1930 - Post E-book to Facebook and private group with a cryptic message telling them to expect a GREAT story in the morning.

The Results:

26 Possible Sale Events from Postings 

8 Exposure Events from Postings

Made posts in SIXTEEN Facebook groups

2 content videos created on the spot and posted

1 blog post created on the spot and posted

2 coaching calls completed

1 Productivity based E-book written, designed, and published to landing page PLUS delivery system completed 

Nikki Scroggins did NOT make this cover and I'm sure she will hate it. Sorry.
Ill never stop being a fancy girl with my covers.  

5 freebies given away

BONUS: Creation of an awesome Excel sheet that lets you type in your desired annual income and 
automatically breaks it into monthly, weekly, and daily totals so you can set your sales goals (available on yesterday's blog post if you want it)

BONUS: Creation of a ten point business diagnostic checklist that is ALREADY changing the game for my clients

BONUS: Created reference sheet of Facebook groups in niche, number of members

Lessons Learned: 

1. Checklist with TIMED taskers is essential and creates sense of urgency.

2. Prepare checklist the NIGHT before.

3. First ten minutes awake, walk around and think. Then take notes and adjust checklist.

4. Stricter time requirements are needed for client calls, overlap affects progress on harder tasks

5. Mitigating dead end Messenger convos is CRUCIAL. No I don't want to hear about your cat, Random Friend that has a lot spare time.

6. Action based results helped out a lot. Thinking about the WHY was huge. Thanks Simon Sinek.

7. If one easy task was done early, start tough task early.

8. Posting a premade video saves a TON of time.

9. E-book plus landing page took 2.5 hours.

10. Phone is biggest distractor with texts and noises, keep upside down, vibrate off to get things done.

Final Thoughts

Thanks for reading this, this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I love teaching people how to be more efficient. Despite my efforts to get some rest today (Thursday, Dec 29th), I got up at 4am and completed THIS:

3 stage business diagnostic used to create exposure and maximum profits

The outline for this blog

My three tier system for categorizing what tier a business is operating in

The formula for strong business health

Tasker list for today 4/15 complete plus 4 calls

Results of self diagnostic of my business

I'm still amazed I failed out of high school and two colleges.

Five FREE Tools Every Entrepreneur Needs to Get Ahead

Hey there!! Want to be notified when I am posting AMAZING business/life articles or giving away tickets to see Michael Mcdonald? Well, I can promise ONE of those things. Subscribe on the right to receive the Blue Dragon Blog twice a week!!! WOOOO!

Today's blog post is exciting. I gathered a lot of resources from my own business practice and am going to hook you up with the ESSENTIAL tools for working at a much higher level. I'll explain what each one does, its rationale and how to best use it. I'm excited for you because once you start using these things, you will see a HUGE change within a week. My results have been unbelievable since assembling these items. How unbelievable?

1. Income and Reverse Breakdown Generator

Description: The IRBG is a great tool for comparing your desired income vs sales performance. You just write down your sales goal for the year and it helps you break down to month, week, and day goals. VERY useful for lighting the fire on slow income days. 

Rationale: The IRBG is more than just creating an income goal, which is a bare minimum requirement for serious entrepreneurs. Its a way to tell EXACTLY how much money you should be earning every day to reach your goals

What's that you say? "Dr. Rob, I don't have an IRBG and I'm getting carpal tunnel from using the calculator obsessively to run these numbers."

I did something REALLY nice for you. Something so nice you should buy me coffee today. 

Type in your desired yearly goal and BOOM!! All done. 

2. List of Prospects

Description: Your list of prospects are people that have emailed or private messaged you on social media about your services. This list is VITAL because you can start building the rapport even if they are not in a position to buy immediately. A loyal customer will turn back to you when they are ready to purchase if you build a strong enough bond. 

Rationale: Your LOP can be a GREAT strategy if you have to meet a last minute sales goal. Check in with them and see if you can close a sale by offering a small discount or freebie if they didnt purchase initially.

3. Current Projects

Description: A current projects display is a figure that shows all active projects, timeline, and next logical step towards completion.

Rationale: Your current projects display will keep you reminded about deadlines and the next step can help you when deciding on daily taskers. This is best done on a dry erase board.

4. Media and Speaking Schedule

Description: This is a VITAL tool for keeping track of your PR appointments.

Rationale: Your media and speaking schedule keep you in the spotlight increasing your visibility and earning you potential new paying clients EVERY appearance. Here is one example of how to create one: 

5. Daily Schedule

Description: Your daily schedule is used to both delegate taskers and to keep track of social media posts. 

Rationale: The schedule helps you to remember what groups you need to post in, keeps you balanced, and gives you an easy to use template for posts. It can also be used to compile influencers that you can partner up with. 


So there you have it. Five tools that can help you get organized, keep track of your sales goals, locate your prospects, and more. If you need a SERIOUS boost to creating an organized system, I offer strategy calls that have a valuable multi tiered approach:

1. 20 minute free pre-qualifying call to make sure I'm the best candidate for you before you pay
2. A custom 10 point business diagnostic that alerts you to weak areas in your business
3. My new E-Book The Next Level which has 16 ways to speed learn ANYTHING plus 5 celeb interviews
4. A one month power strategy for your business augmenting your areas for improvement
5. Assistance designing YOUR custom daily scheduler. 

All this with your one hour call. Email me at to set up your FREE 20 minute pre-qualifying call. - Dr. Rob

How to NOT Get Ripped Off When Buying Life Coaching

Sign up on the right to receive these amazing blog posts. I shall then sell your emails to a murky Eastern European conglomerate -------bwahahahahaha (rubbing fingers together) No, just kidding, Ill just show you how to be successful and wildly amazing.

Life coaching can be a great investment. The industry itself has grown by huge numbers in the last decade as popular top tier coaches inspire with their lifestyles and wealth. But there is a downside. Due to low barriers of entry, a very small percentage of low impact frauds have infiltrated the industry and are causing harm to the very perception of everyone that is a life or performance coach .

This post isnt to call anyone out .I'm too classy for that, and lawsuits are expensive. I'm going to do THREE things.

1. Reveal the shady shit that is going on so you can educate yourself before losing thousands.

2. Give you a five point diagnostic system for coach evaluation.

3. Make you an offer that will AMAZE you with its awesomeness (no, its not a free puppy).

Popular Scams

Coaching essentially comes in two forms:

1. You hire someone to teach you how to BE a coach

2. You hire someone to teach you a skill

Here are some of the ways that the frauds are stealing your money:

1. Lie and Bail - Coach posts in Facebook groups about how much money they are making and how great their lifestyle is. Client signs up. Coach immediately blocks them after payment, refuses refund and moves to next mark. (The SAME person has ripped off 7 of my friends this way)

2. Bait and Switch - Coach promises  how they can give YOU a luxury lifestyle, financial freedom, blah blah blah. When you sign up for their membership site, the content is written at a 7th grade level with very general advice that doesn't help you do a damn thing. Refunds are purposely VERY difficult to achieve.

3. Pay to Play - "Guru" pays a high visibility business podcast's "Make Me Famous" fee. Lies about earnings and continues to coach despite hundreds of consumer complaints about poor quality of content.

4. Empty Promises - Coach promises specific results and has either NO experience in field or NO techniques to help client grow their business. When threatened with refund, coach pulls their head out of their ass and promises to return calls on time, pay attention to client or you know, EARN THEIR FEE. This one pisses me off the most because its very common today.

Now that you have seen what is going on out there, you realize how important it is to SCREEN anyone before investing your hard earned money into them. You wouldn't buy a car without a test drive, checking price against Blue Book prices, and asking friends about what they think, right? RIGHT?

So why in the hell are you plunking down money because of what some coach TELLS you? That's like walking on the car lot and buying the FIRST car the dealer suggests.

Does that sound smart to you?

5 Point Diagnostic Before Hiring a Coach:

1. Google the coach to see what pops up. Combine their name and "scam". This will at least let you see if there are complaints, FTC actions, possible criminal background etc.

2. Find someone that has hired them and HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THEM. Ask about the experience, any negatives and their overall results from working with the coach. Testimonials can and WILL be faked by the duplicitous.

3. If you are purchasing training, do they have content you can review? There is NOTHING worse than dropping 4k and finding out this person lifted everything from Jack Canfield.

4. Do they have credibility like news appearances, contributions in their field, appearance on a variety of media?

5. Do they ask questions about YOUR goals during discovery calls, or do they just try and get a sale as quickly as possible?

Amazing and Awesome Offer

You read this post because you are interested in coaching. You clearly want someone that can help you be more successful or guide you to life success.

I can absolutely get you there.

I'm a high school dropout from a bad family thats now an Ed.D, keynote speaker, 8 time author, and magazine owner.

Google Blue Dragon Rob Garcia.

That's the level of exposure I can help someone gain. My network is formidable and helps me to develop HIGH level strategies to make you more money, get more sales, and be better at ANYTHING.

I give a FREE discovery call to make sure that I'm the right guy for the job. Then we discuss what strategies are best for your goals. No money is ever exchanged until I have a plan mapped out with timelines, milestones and appropriate tactics.

In ten years of coaching I have never been asked for a refund. I'm very proud of that because it means my clients have purchased VALUE.

So if you are ready to move forward in 2017 with some AMAZING programs and training, find me on Facebook:

or email:

If you arent ready to invest just yet, I ALWAYS offer free general advice. You deserve abundance, we all do. Contact me if I can help you with anything in business or life.

Why Being Nice is the New MBA

I had a huge shift in my business a few months ago. It wasn’t anything difficult or groundbreaking. In fact, it was rather easy and started yielding HUGE results. My friends on Facebook noticed immediately.

“Are you on Prozac?”

“I don’t know what you are doing but keep it up”

“This is who you always should have been”

All I did was get a “Degree in Nice.”

Taking a cue from a few friends, I modified behaviors and focused on helping others.

*I stopped venting on Facebook

*I stopped posting divisive things that isolate people into groups. No more memes about pit bulls, gun control, politics, Monsanto, religion, or gay rights.

*Started showcasing my friends and recommending them to people that would hire them

*Reduced my online profanity by 95%

People that hadn’t contacted me in YEARS started quietly sending messages supporting this new me. Business owners started recommending me to clients. I got invited to podcasts and FB business groups.

We have forgotten the fundamental qualities of being nice and selfless. It took three people to bring me back. I want to publicly thank them. They pulled me back from a dark precipice and let the real Dr. Rob out. The guy that smiles at people during his morning run. The guy that pets cats and waves at kids. The guy that sees someone struggling to lift something into their car and helps them. That’s the guy I like being.

Lewis Howes is the host of the School of Greatness podcast. He is a bestselling author and makes his living helping people and connecting them. When he is not interviewing celebrities, he gets involved in companies like Pencils of Promise and travels to places like Ghana to help build schools for impoverished children. He is the epitome of nice and the kind of guy that you want as a friend.

Dennis Langlais is the host of Five Minute Bark, a video podcast in La Jolla, California. He is a former professional BMX rider turned media giant and gives hundreds of hours a year helping to promote others. He uses his high aptitude video skills to help other people reach their dreams and is a top level connector. The great thing about Dennis is that he will IMMEDIATELY help you and never ask for payment, he just does it to see you succeed. He is the epitome of selfless and I am grateful for meeting him. You can find him at

Steve Simeone is a comedian that has been referred to as “The Nicest Guy in Hollywood.” I have met Steve three times in person and this is definitely an understatement. Steve is generous, has traveled overseas to entertain the troops. raises blood for hospitals and reaches out to sick children. Steve GENUINELY loves everyone in his life and his podcast, “Good Times With Steve Simeone” takes you back to the good memories of childhood, funny relatives, and the dynamics of hilarious family interaction. I cannot recommend it enough. You can find Steve at

In closing, I just wanted to say thank you guys for teaching me far more about succeeding in business than I learned from a graduate degree. Being nice is already paying huge rewards and I can’t thank you three enough.

3 GREAT Things We Can Learn From Prince

We lost an icon today. Prince was one of the most talented and versatile performers in musical history. He was literally at the level of Madonna, Springsteen or Michael Jackson.

If you tried to explain Prince to someone in 1984, it was just, well..................different.

"Yeah, he's a short black man dressed in white ruffled pirate shirts, a purple crushed velvet jacket and high heeled boots riding a purple motorcycle around Minneapolis.............and playing rock."

The universal appeal of Prince was that he represented all of us that felt alienated by society. Purple Rain hit SUCH a chord with most people because it was about his struggle as a musician while enduring an abusive family situation and resistance from everyone around him.

As his fame grew, he changed his look, he evolved, but he was still in essence, the same guy we all loved and adored. A musical genius that never got too arrogant, that still LOVED performing and reaching out to fans.

Here are three things I LOVED about Prince.

1. He Walked His Own Path

Prince never let the opinions of others sway what he was going to do. He set out to write sexy, intriguing music that captivated people. He took huge risks including changing his name and leaving a major record label. He never doubted himself because he realized a fundamental truth. His true fans would follow him NO MATTER WHAT. The critics would complain as usual, and Prince would just ride his motorcycle up Sunset laughing in the wind. 

2. He EMBRACED His Creativity

Prince experimented with many musical sounds. "Let's Go Crazy" sounds VERY different from "7."
Prince wasn't scared to write songs about deep intense love and passion and ballads then turn around and write something SHOCKING like "P Control" or a party jam like "1999."

3. He Kept His Humility

I have to be really honest. I never met Prince. But I heard plenty of stories. He would embrace his Jehovah's Witness roots and go door knocking to try and save others. He would show up in a dimly lit club unannounced in Hollywood and play for hours. He would have meaningful and deep conversations with fans. He kept it together and despite being larger than life, never became arrogant or brash. 

I loved Prince. I always will. Because he's a part of all of us. We will always have Purple Rain, his amazing albums and some very odd posters. We should all try and emulate him by being bold, by taking chances and going out of our way to be..................... abundant.

Thanks guys, do me a favor and share this post if you love Prince. Let's keep his memory alive.
