Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest
Prior to meeting Robert today, we had one 30 minute conversation. What I heard then is what I got on the show today. Robert has a big heart for helping people, learning and keeping things humble. Before the show we had a conversation about how it is easier for some people to embrace their “why” yet the trouble comes when determining “how” to act on that why. I suspect Robert will be adding many layers of “how” to his work not because he does not know his “how” but because he has the kind of generous spirit that refuses to accept defeat or status quo. – Stephanie Michele
