Following a career in the marketing and design industry in London and Sydney, Robert made the leap to his own business in the mid 1990s.
Seeing a niche in the area of support and resources aimed at the ‘one-person business’, Robert launched the Flying Solo community in 2005.
With a small team, he grew the business to a member base ofover 100,000 Australian freelancers and entrepreneurs, before selling to Pinstripe Media at the end of last year.
Back working solo, today Robert pops up regularly at conferences and events; supports individuals in the development of their ventures, and hosts a series of podcasts including: “The Business of Bookkeeping”(for First Class Accounts), “The Flying Solo Podcast”and his own “Mellow Brick Road”a new show that explores creative approaches to business.
His first book, “Flying Solo: How to go it alone in business” was a business bestseller and his latest, “The 1-Minute Commute“was published byPan Macmillan at the end of June.
