Today’s guest is an experienced on-air host and communication strategist whose credits include numerous national television networks, such as HBO, PBS, and most recently QVC, where she single-handedly launched the fastest growing brand in the entire network for 2019.
She has combined her skills in marketing, production, and hosting with her personal passion for helping nonprofit organizations to create Spotlight On Giving – a full-service company specializing in Corporate Social Responsibility and Spotlight On TV – which offers celebrities the chance to shine their spotlight on causes dear to them.
She wears many other hats, including as a marketing strategist who works with individuals to help them find their voice, as Executive Producer and host of ABC Coast to Coast, which creates sizzle reels, and as Chief Empathy Officer of A Pebble in the Road, which specializes in effective video storytelling for broadcast, marketing, and online content.

In this episode we discuss:
- her thoughts on leadership “Leadership is teamwork. I think a leader is only as strong as their team.”
- how her mother was her first influence to being a great leader.
- her passion to be a multi-faceted and competitive learner in everything she sets her mind to.
- how her stint working as an emcee for Nascar was the turning point of her career.
- how she wanted to be in a show to highlight causes/non-profits but because it didn’t exist – she created it – a trait that has been consistent throughout her career.

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.
