With her creativity, entrepreneurial drive, and fascination with the brain, it’s not surprising that her startup allows people to control computers with their minds.
She and her team have been featured in over 1000 media pieces, including TED, CNN, Forbes, Fortune, Wall Street Journal, and they are recipients of multiple innovation awards.

In this episode we discuss:
- her thoughts on leadership: “A leader is someone who is able to see a direction and is also so compelling that other people want to follow them.”
- how having loving entrepreneur parents shaped her belief in her abilities and her desire to be an entrepreneur.
- her childhood experience with leading, where she was considered bossy, and her journey to being a strong leader at 22, while operating a successful clothing line.
- the value she places on helping improve other people and the world, and how that led to her developing Muse.
- how being a female founder in a male-dominated industry, before there was a strong push for equality, had both positives and negatives.
- her large network and how she networks and connects with others.

Relationship-Based Business Strategist & Business Coach
Are you ready to create a Relationship-Based Business Plan that will help you achieve greater impact (and income)?
- You want to have a greater impact and increased income. The problem is that there are so many options for how to build your business that you can feel stuck, overwhelmed, and like you're running out of time.
- The reason options are overwhelming is that you're looking at them as a series of disconnected steps when — to make the most of your time — you need a strategy that connects only the most important and highest impact ones.
- Why? Because you know it's true that if you try to do everything, you will accomplish nothing. This means, to achieve your goal, you have to invest in a strategy to put time on your side.
- How? This program will help you find the clarity to determine what is the right next step for your business. A book? A podcast? An online course? Masterminds? Speaking on bigger stages?
- Together we will design a 12-month Relationship-Based Business Plan that will allow you to stack your successes to create momentum and leverage your limited time.
- Robbie believes that networking is a marketing strategy and coaches “expert entrepreneurs” (of any gender) to grow to the next level through relationship-based business strategies and hands-on support. Interested to learn more about private coaching packages? Send Robbie an email.
