In addition to more than 10 years in law enforcement, I am a Certified Police Instructor and Field Training Officer. I have over 30 years of business and entrepreneurial experience. Some of my experiences include owning a successful Coral Gables, Fl based mortgage brokerage business, a graphic design and marketing firm, artist management company, a publishing company and an award winning after-school program. I am also an experienced real estate investor, financial planner, licensed life insurance agent, freelance writer, consultant for academia, profit and non profit businesses, international lifestyle model, actor, life and business coach.

In accordance with my commitment to making a difference in the lives of youth and families, I formed the Miami based award winning after-school program, Writer's Playhouse, where we served up to 100 students per day for 5 years (2004-2009) utilizing my book, Success Secrets from The Three Little Pigs (previously named Prepare for the Wolf), as the program's curriculum. The school where the program was based, Charles Drew Elementary, successfully went from a "C" to an "A" the entire 5 years the program was in place with 100% of students passing State required exams and matriculating to the next grade. The program, funded by me, Robert Roots, corporate and private sponsors as well as a $700,000.00 grant from 21 Century Community Learning Centers, received numerous accolades and was featured in media highlighting the programs success for inspiring youth to embrace education, choose a success mindset and exhibit the virtues of good character.

I am a contributing writer to the celebrated book, Souls of My Brothers, which also featured the late Isaac Hayes, radio personality Lenny Green, Grammy Award winning singers Howard Hewett and Kenny Lattimore, the CEO of Cash Money Records, Bryan Williams, actor Obba Babatunde and Congressman Gregory Meeks.

As a student of personal development for more than 35 years (since 13 years old), I have been fortunate to have been mentored by some of the world's most renowned leaders including Les Brown who provided the foreword for Success Secrets from The Three Little Pigs.

My signature program INNERSTANDING™ which means to have an Awareness and Appreciation for your Purpose and Possibilities  is at the core of my philosophy and teachings. Within us all is the power to achieve our purpose and possibilities when we master our inner game and develop a new awareness and appreciation for our talents, opportunities and experiences.

With this new mindset and self-confidence, we are no longer held hostage to our inner critic or negative criticism from others. This frees us to make better choices, get beyond self-limiting beliefs, fear, doubt, insecurities, excuses and the false story of not being enough.

Winning Starts Within. As the proverb states, "If there is no enemy on the inside, the enemy on the outside can do us no harm."

Achievements are rewarding, but what I am most proud of are my four amazing children, daughter-in-law and grand daughter. I have two incredible teenage sons, Michael and Darren; a brilliant daughter, Janara, a recent university graduate with a degree in Early Childhood Education and my eldest, Robert, a music producer, speaker and author of "Falling Isn't Failing"- an inspiring motivational book for youth based on his experiences. My wonderful daughter-in-law and Robert's wife, Brittany, who has been a blessing to the family, blessed us with my beautiful 3 year old grand daughter, Robynn.

If you're looking for an energetic, engaging and animated character speaker with a passion for results or if in need of results focused life or business coaching from someone who has walked the talk, call Robert Roots at 305.209.0907 or email: RR@RobertRoots.com. Thank you!

I am often asked, why do I do this?

My answer is because I know how it is to grow up in poverty and see people with great promise barely scratch the surface of what is possible for their life.

I know how it is to suffer from the pain of low self-esteem, fear, doubt, depression and be tormented by self-limiting beliefs.

How it is to love your children and not have enough to provide.

How it is to be worried about keeping the roof over your head.

How it is to feel like your standing in quicksand hoping to survive another day.

I do what I do because I was born there.

Because I have been blessed to leave, only to return and having to wonder, how did I get back here?

Because I believe in what is possible.

Because over the course of my life, my many mentors, including my mother Bernadette Gonzales, world famous authors, speakers, coaches as well as my life experiences, have taught me how to overcome the very obstacles that to others seemed insurmountable.

Because I know my achievements and challenges have all been necessary for me to discover so I can also teach others how to have INNERSTANDING™  - an Awareness and Appreciation for your Purpose so you realize your Possibilities.

I do because I know that Winning Starts Within and

"It does not matter who you are, where you come from or what you are going through, You Have The Power to Change Your Reality!"
