Robert B. Foster is a man of incomparable strength and resilience. Being someone who has been through his fair share of hardships, he was able to walk away with a deeper understanding of his life purpose. As a matter of fact, he would not have become the motivational and inspirational figure he is today if he had not hit rock bottom. Looking back, the difficulties he faced in the past were nothing but formative tools carving out his path to success. His passion is now showing others how to embrace public speaking, owning your failures in life while using them to inspire others, and ultimately helping you to forgive yourself for any wrongs you may have committed. We are all human and can learn from one another. Each episode of Shut Up and GRIND features a guest that at some point said "I can't do this anymore" and took the steps to change the course of their life.
