I am the successful outcome of coaching. In 1993, I launch my first company selling presentation technologies such as projectors and multimedia systems. I had little experience running a company, but I worked hard, very hard and had a great first year. I knew I was on the road to making a lot of money and own a thriving company.
In 1994 at the suggestion of my mentor, I engaged a business coach. One of the first things he helped me see was the products I was selling were going to either obsolete or commoditized in the next two to three years and put me out of business! So my business coach and I began to strategize how to move from a product-based business to service-based business creating presentations, videos, and meetings.
I had to reinvent myself from being a hardware guy to being a creative director, producer and managing large teams of people. Because I had a business coach, the business was successful and lasted over 20 years.
In 2005 it hit me - I had an epiphany! I wanted to be a coach and help other small business owners just like my coach had such a profound impact on my business and life. So I started doing the groundwork to become the best possible Executive Coach I could be.
I LOVE COACHING!
I am excited to work with you and your business to break through the barriers preventing you from achieving the results they want. To create inspiring goals which call you forward into action. To be sounding board so you can make the best possible leader and make the best decisions.

Robert made me think and had great insights. I also really liked the work he challenged me with between sessions. He also made the business of working with him easy. I'd recommend him to anyone.Matt
Robert is an exceptional motivator! He helped us change our focus from daily activities to advancing our business model. He had references for all of his information, contacts for whatever we needed (like a new website) and was incredibly kind. It didn't take long to change our mind set and get us up and running in a better direction!Kym Malone
Robert has impacted my business and my life more than I could have ever imagined. I have had a successful company for 10 years now. It was until a few months ago that I realized, I did need help to take myself, my company and my employees to the next level. I spoke to a few Executive Coaches in order to get a feel for who and what I needed. I picked Robert because I felt like he got me, and related to the crossroads I was at. At first, I wanted him to just tell me what to do. Ive had a great personal trainer before and thought this was similar. I was very wrong. Robert challenges me to find the answers myself. Theres not just one right answer. As Im doing that; I am growing, learning and changing for the better. I didnt realize before I was operating in the fog. I now see things very clearly. Im still a work in progress, but thats because I am dedicating myself to a lifelong session of intentional self-improvement. Thank you Robert!Brianna Rooney
Robert provided an engaging seminar on Developing a Culture of High Performance for our senior management team. The team learned quite a bit in just a few days and we are now "speaking the same language" when it comes to accountability for our individual and team efforts. I am certain that any team will improve using Robert's methods. We have definitely increased our efficiency post-Robert's seminar and we are eager to learn more.Tom Gilman, CEO, BioSero, San Diego
Robert is a powerful and highly effective business coach. I worked with Robert to clarify my goals, next steps, and to break through the barriers preventing me from taking decisive action. With Robert's help, I was able to identify a career path that would truly satisfy me and quickly secured my dream job with my dream company. Robert is both a rigorous and compassionate coach who only has the best interests of his clients. I’ve also participated in his webinars and programs which are designed to develop participants to become better leaders who build High-Performing Teams. I recommend Robert without hesitation.Jennifer Leighton, Luxury Manager, The RealReal, Westlake Villiage
Robert was a wonderful business coach to me as my Vistage Chair in 2007-8 time frame. He helped me see things more clearly and make better business decisions to grow my business. I am super grateful for all Robert did for me!Ellen Kaufman Wolf, President & Owner | Wolf Group L.A.
I hired Robert to help me figure out the best possible outcome for a difficult situation with a client. I thought for sure the client relationship was going downhill and I was going to lose the account. He helped me get a clearer perspective and consequently see options I could not see on my own. Robert helped me devise a plan that allowed me to communicate my terms and conditions without being adversarial. I saved the client relationship and it is actually stronger now that we worked through a difficult patch together. I'm sure I would not have been able to achieve the same results if I had not solicited Robert's coaching.Marc Levin, Tax & Business Planning at Sandler Powell Jacobs & Berlin, CPAs
