Hey y’all, its Robbie. I once heard a quote by PT Barnum that has always stuck with me, “the highest form of art is to make people happy.” I love making people happy, like, making people happy makes me happy. Which is naturally why I get involved in service type careers. My first business was R & R Recycling that my brother and I started when I was 11 and he was 9. We found out somehow that if you took aluminum cans to the dump, they would weigh them and then pay you per pound. We printed out some flyers and put them in every mailbox of our neighborhood. Just as the flyer promised, we would collect the cans every Saturday, walking around with our wagon. Oh, the money we made. It sure beat doing chores for mom!
I’ve been an entrepreneur ever since I guess, creating a mortgage company and then a commercial real estate investment company of which I ran for 10 years. I enjoyed commercial real estate but the opportunity to continue changed and I was left in a quandary of what to do. I jumped into fashion styling on a suggestion from a friend…little did I know.
I mean, I always received compliments on how I dressed and although I credit the success of K-Swiss shoes to me wearing them before they were even a thing back in the day, I wouldn’t call myself passionate about fashion or even a trendsetter. I love pretty things, I definitely know what looks are emerging and which designers to watch, but I don’t live and breathe it.
What gives me life is making people happy, making things better for them. My purpose is about more than just the services I provide but rather the parts of my story that can bring value to others. I’m able to take all the experience I have in real estate, fashion, interior design and my own personal wins and struggles, meld it with my desire to serve…to make others better…from the way they DWELL, to the way they DRESS, FEEL & LOVE. Let’s get you living your best life.
All the best,
