Today on the podcast I am joined by Yahya Bakkar, a speaker and coach, and author of The 5-Step Blueprint. Yahya is also a certified interventionist and has spoken to nationally recognized organizations, and has a mission to empower others to build the courage and confidence to be themselves. I wanted Yahya to be on the show because he is such a burst of energy, has unreal confidence, and has insane amounts of knowledge that I know you all will love.

Hi, I’m Rob!

Hi, I’m Rob! It has been said “You are not what you have learned, but what you’ve overcome.”

I have overcome my share of obstacles in order to architect the life of my dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success. Growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), my early years were tumultuous, marked by hardship and violence.
