He is a self-made multimillionaire and entrepreneur, who now inspires countless people, including myself, through his uplifting and encouraging blog Mind Adventures. Mind Adventures provides advice on how to push past self-limiting habits, and develop and cultivate a successful and bountiful mind. Mind Adventures has quickly become one of my personal favorite blogs, and is a place I get inspiration and advice on how to cultivate an abundance mentality, when I may not be feeling quite so abundant. I contacted Rob to inquire about an interview, and to gain as much wisdom as possible, admittedly out of my own selfish desire to be a multimillionaire, and he was kind enough to provide Shake off the Grind with some short and sweet insights about how to push past limits, and be a successful entrepreneur. I hope you enjoy.
