Today on the show is Captain Tom Bunn. A few weeks ago, I had a panic attack for the first time in my life. I found a book that I thought would help me through this process written by a former commercial airline pilot that ran a fear of flying school. During that process, Captain Tom stumbled upon some solutions to help people who are suffering from panic attacks. If you are finding yourself randomly having anxiety or panic attacks in the middle of this COVID-19 business, this episode is for you.

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.
