Rob has overcome his share of obstacles in order to architect the life of his dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success. From growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), his early years were tumultuous and marked by hardship and violence. As a means of escape, Rob clung to work and education, and eventually went on to build a successful chiropractic practice. However, after spending his entire life in relentless hustle and Work Mode, Rob was ready for the Play Hard side of things. After reading The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris, Rob uncovered the world of lifestyle-entrepreneurship, leading him to launch a lifestyle travel blog known as “Jetset Life” with his wife Kim.
Rob is now the host of the Work Hard Play Hard Podcast as well as the Founder of the Work Hard Play Hard Mastermind, where he teaches others how to master the counter-balance between the science of achievement and the art of fulfillment.
In this episode we dive into:
1. Rob’s initial drive as a child to change his circumstances and become successful.
2. How moving to a new city and starting a chiropractic business led Rob to years of success, but why he still couldn’t shake the monotonous feeling of day to day life.
3. What inspired him to travel the world and create his brand “Jet Set Life”.
4. The differences between his 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s, and how his priorities changed dramatically with each decade.
5. Why Rob believes in putting different amounts of momentum into certain aspects of his life at certain times, rather than trying to keep a “ balance” of it all.
6. How money, fame, and material items were the definition of “success”, but now how it is all about fulfillment.
7. Rob explains his struggle with the appropriate amount of involvement in his company as he is trying to step back from it, and how he and his employees were able to find a happy medium.
8. Setting your “end goal” and getting there by following through with actions and a strong sense of accountability.
9. The power of a mastermind group and the personal and professional benefits that go along.
10. Why his mastermind group differs from the others, and how emerging into different cultures puts you leaps in front of the others.
11. Robs day to day schedule, and why he never sets an alarm
clock, or works before noon.
