Episode 565: Stories that inspire, with Robin Behrstock.
Robin Behrstock has been starting businesses since she was a kid. Most of them were failures, which — as they should — became learning experiences. At the age of 33, it all paid off when she started a copper mug business just as they became a popular trend. In less than three years, she grew the business to annual sales of $3 million. With that success came the realization it wasn’t what she wanted to do with her life. The best part of being an entrepreneur—for her—wasn’t making money or selling lots of copper mugs, it was inspiring people, which led Robin to write the book, “Adventures of Women Entrepreneurs: Stories That Inspire”…with the goal of inspiring women around the world to do something different, to step outside their comfort zone or move beyond their present circumstances and make their dreams a reality!
