When Rob isn’t consulting, you can find him fly-fishing in search of monster trout, bouncing down a rocky trail on his mountain bike, or loudly playing his drums. However, his wife, Ashley, prefers that he join her to quietly paint, work in their garden, or watch Jane Austen movies. They reside in Atlanta, Georgia.
Due to Rob’s busy consulting schedule, he is only able to accept new clients on a select basis. To inquire about his availability, please call 1-800-267-2045.
