Learning with Laughter
- Robert Bobby Goldsmith
Where Inspiration, Education & Motivation
Meets Stand-up Comedy.
Raised on the rough streets of Brooklyn, N.Y., Robert overcame the challenges of alcohol & drug addiction. Well, not the kind of drugs that leads to addictions! In Robert's case, he's referring to that "rubbing alcohol" he used to pretend to have had a fever to get a day off from school, or the aspirin for the headaches he had growing-up with three (count them three) sisters! A graduate of the University of “Hard Knocks,” having lost his dad when just a boy, after years in the corporate world, he ventured on the path of the entrepreneur . . .
You know, "where you work 80-hours each week just to avoid working 40." (Yikes!)
By now, you have probably realized Robert loves to be sarcastic, to entertain, and to make people laugh. However, when it comes to business, he takes it seriously. A Self-Made Millionaire with over three decades of experience in Leadership, Sales, Coaching, and in the Financial industry, Robert has been referred to as a "breath of fresh air," as he makes learning fun.
Recognized as that individual who takes the lead in almost any endeavor, when you add-in his ability to make people laugh... is why he has been branded as..."THE ENTERTRAINER!" He attributes success to an ability to look and work outside of that "proverbial box" that most people continue to try to keep us in. He motivates, inspires, and educates audiences nationwide as he makes them laugh and cry while sharing his skillsets that can assist everyone to learn from his humor, his business, and his personal life experiences.
Robert hosts his own weekly "Financial 411" podcasts and has frequently appeared as the voice of the "Financial Tip of the Week," on The Drive Time Talk Radio Show; "Every Day with French & Friends," broadcast on 1590-WCGO-Chicago.
The author of the humorous & award-winning book on business and integrity; “You're Earning What You Deserve... And That Sucks!”, as well as, a Co-Author of the Amazon Best-Selling Book “BOOM” (anchored by the Iconic Mark Victor Hansen-Chicken Soup), Robert is also a featured author in the INTERNATIONAL BEST-SELLING book to Empower Women; "Step Forward & Shine." Currently working on his newest book where he shares his expertise in the financial world to guide you on the path to the financial security you deserve entitled;
“From Diapers to It Depends!” ®
