Rob G. Adams, is an author, speaker and coach with a deep passion for personal and spiritual growth. He has a unique story and has turned his pain into purpose in order to inspire others.
Born and raised in Brandon, Florida, “Rob” as family and friends affectionately call him, would later move to Northern Virginia for a period of time where he attended high school and college.
During his youth and into his adult life, he developed a love for sports and athleticism particularly in the areas of basketball and baseball. His mother played a vital role in Rob’s development and encouraged him to stay focused and to keep God first. Rob was raised in a single parent home and understood from a young age the true meaning of responsibility.
Throughout high school and college, he found himself behaving like most young adults, following the crowd and seeking acceptance from surrounding peers. As a freshman in college, Rob was living the college dream by being away from home and attending college parties. Soon, he would be faced with tackling treatments and making routine doctor visits due to an unexpected and sudden diagnosis of cancer. He was 20 years old.
To most, fighting cancer would appear to be a setback but Rob decided to see it as a setup for something greater. After enduring nearly 6 months of intense treatments, he received the report of being completely cancer free and he continues to walk in his total healing.
In 2012, Rob returned to college and finished what he started, earning his B.S. in business management and is now involved in public speaking, community-based activities and inspiring others to move past setbacks and develop a mindset to Win. He is an inspiration to those around him and believes that to win at life, you must first learn to Win from Within.
Presently, he resides in Los Angeles, CA.
