180 Degrees is an autobiographical inspiring true-story of a once homeless, teenage drug addict who was able to achieve sobriety and ultimately become a self-made millionaire by the age of 30. Robert shares his extraordinary journey from one extreme of the human condition to the other, literally changing his life 180 degrees. His journey is a powerful rags to riches' story of despair, hope and triumph.
180 Degrees begins with an engrossing depiction of life as a teenage drug addict. As Robert's dependency becomes ever more apparent, the trials, tribulations and consequences of addiction consume and begin to bury him. His excessive consumption takes control and his life spirals downward, giving the reader a view into the insidiousness of drug addiction and the sleazy, unscrupulous lifestyle that accompanies it. Rob leads his audience through the despondency afflicting him before reaching that pivotal moment of when he decides to change his life. No longer capable of controlling or debating his drug addiction, Robert slowly reclaims his life by getting honest, willing and eventually completely sober. With determination, inexhaustible effort, and applying the invaluable lessons learned from twelve-step programs, 180 Degrees shows how anyone can achieve a life of serenity and prosperity. Culminating in a step-by-step process, readers gain insight and valuable tools which they can employ for their own success. This book is an invaluable resource for anyone who has given up hope for themselves, or for a loved one who is self-destructing through substance abuse.
About the author
Robert abandoned the deadly path which drug abuse and drug dealing was leading him down. After considerable struggles, at the age of twenty-two (March 11, 1991) Robert was able to turn his life around "180 Degrees". Robert soon realized that sobriety and hard work provided him inner-peace and prosperity beyond his highest expectations, resulting in becoming a self-made millionaire by the age of thirty. Eternally grateful to everyone who helped him become and remain sober, Robert felt an overwhelming duty to reach out to addicts like himself and hopes his story will inspire others battling addiction to find their own success. Once achieving monetary abundance, Robert has been an active citizen and philanthropist. Deeply concerned for the well-being of young adults, Robert has been the speaker for drug and alcohol abuse classes at high schools, juvenile detention centers, recovery hospitals and rehabilitation centers. Also, he is a panel speaker and secretary at many twelve-step meetings. Some of Robert's business accomplishments include real estate office manager, agent coach, and has been the key note speaker at over fifty company office meetings, participated in agent training videos, and he has been featured in print and on television. With over eighteen years experience in real estate, he is considered one of the nation's leading agents. Now, at the age of forty, Robert is a successful business man and loving family man residing in Los Angeles, California with his wife and two sons.
