Gregg Robins On Living Messy Lives & Hard Times
"Everybody I talk to seems to have these bumps in the road," says Gregg Robins. "I think we all live messy lives, and I think we should rejoice in that, and not photoshop our lives." Gregg rejoices by telling stories. He's a storyteller with street cred. He dropped out of high school, then graduated Oxford and built a career in finance in Switzerland. But around the time of 9-11, his father was dying. He chose to leave Citibank and move with his three children back to America. "I went back to the States and found myself out of work, in America, having just had a family tragedy, having had a national tragedy, and had to pick up the pieces and rebuild my life." He shares his first foray into children's writing with his new book, "Silenzio, Sound The Alarm!" And he shares his latest song of hope, one that we can all use in this trying year, "Tomorrow Will Be Better Than Today." He also shares his way of approaching creativity and storytelling, perhaps something else that we can all use within our messy lives.
