We had the good fortune of connecting with Robert Landau and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Robert, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I’ve been a Motivational Speaker for over twelve years. When the virus hit, I felt moved to concentrate on another side of what I’m blessed to bring to people for years, that of being a Certified Life Coach. We need comfort, assurance and empowerment now more than ever. Learning how to manage fear and an uncertain future are in high demand now. I, and numerous others, are honored to be of service and answer the call. People need to know how to be in the present moment and be secure in that. That’s the only way the future can work out. Not dragging the past into the present is paramount as well. I’m all about that and love it when I see Life Coach clients take their power back and once again remember what it feels to be confident and secure. The storms may rage on the outside of us, but within, through effective management, the storms don’t have to effect our mindset. I also think it’s important to be affordable and not drag sessions out over months. Once someone I’m working with is reconnected with the part or parts of themselves that they thought they had long forgotten about, true success is achieved. They once again have the tools to take control of their own lives. When you are in control within, what happens on the outside of you is totally manageable. Most of all, I fully believe that what I give out, comes back to me double. That’s another reason why I truly love what I do and is why I am proud to be a Certified Life Coach.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I was an Actor in New York City for many years. Not satisfied or fulfilled with the behind-the-scenes goings on in the performing arts at the time, I searched for something else. I became an International Cruise Director for just under ten years. 300 ports of call on close to 400 cruises. That was a life-changer for me. I learned that no matter what we look like, no matter how we live or what we choose to believe, we all bleed the same color and our hearts are within us beat the same way. We are truly one. Just knowing and living this simple fact can change the world. My current careers of being a Certified Life Coach and National Motivational Speaker give me the opportunity to share the amazing lessons I’ve learned during my years at sea. When we have been given the gifts of numerous important life lessons, it is up to us to share those with as many as will hear and benefit from them.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would think of what my friend loves to do. What would make their heart sing during their time with me? The visit wouldn’t be about me, it would be about them.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to recognize and thank all my past clients who are making amazing changes in their lives all because of the work we did together.
