mentoring would-be, new, or young entrepreneurs - "Paying it Forward"
Many, many people have asked me ever since I sold London Telecom Network, a business that I started from scratch in my basement, to Primus Canada, why I haven't written books, or travel, speaking to groups of would-be, new, or young entrepreneurs.
That's a good question......
Up until now, I've just been too busy with other things and didn't feel the need. On a personal level, my 2 boys are now moving into their late teen years, getting more & more involved in their own lives, & preparing for their own careers. I now feel it's time for me take the time to reflect & share the secrets & truths I have learned, with others, about taking a business from nothing, to a thriving enterprise with over 150,000 customers being billed monthly & over 300 employees. I've put together this website to do just that.....I hope you will find it interesting, exciting, informative & inspiring.

If you would like to ask a general question about starting/running a business, discussing new concepts and/or asking Rob to be a mentor, contact Rob by email.
If you include your phone number & the best range of times to call......as time permits, I'll do my best to reach you.
I would like to keep in touch, receive feedback on an ongoing basis how you are able to move forward.....I am happy to function as a mentor & provide support as I had several myself, who did just that, unselfishly, throughout my business career......even now.
Please keep in mind that this is done on a volunteer, no cost basis.

As I have been very fortunate to have built a very large business with the help of many dedicated people, and could not have done that without them, I would like to "pay my experience forward" to anyone who is in need.
