After a successful career in marketing and communications during Tim Donut Ltd’s explosive expansion years, (he helped open the company’s 200th store in Waterdown), Robert founded Morrow & Associates–a corporate publishing and advertising firm. The company boasted some of Canada’s industry leaders as clients throughout the 1980s and early 1990s.
During the mid 90s, Robert turned to public journalism and edited Menu Magazine, and later, Real Estate News, New Home News, and Redline (currently under the Hamilton Community News banner, a division of Metroland West Media Group).
By the turn of the new millennium, Robert decided to leave the world of journalism and founded the Tae Fitness Centre which grew into the largest facility of its kind in the area. Initially a family martial arts club (and personal dream) it quickly grew to become a popular centre for ladies’ cardio-kickboxing, group weight training, Pilates, and Tai-Chi.
Robert trained 10 Pilates instructors, 3 kickboxing instructors, and 8 provincial Taekwondo champions during this period, the latter ranging in age from 12 to 69. The club was also the training centre for the Canadian National Taekwondo Team in 2000.
After selling the club to Canadian Budu-Ru in Dundas, Robert concentrated on his growing real estate career, as sales representative for Chase Realty Inc., Brokerage, co-launching the innovative www.emailhomes.ca, a leading Buyer’s only website, featuring informative video tips and dynamic home search engine.
Robert has recently published three books on real estate: “Buck Tradition: The Smartest Way to SELL YOUR HOME in Canada” and “SOLD Strategies: The Cheapest, Safest, and Smartest ways to SELL YOUR HOME”, and “Investing in Student Housing”. He is also the author of a the “Artichoke Hart” thriller series and co-author of the “Menu for Passion” and “Devil’s Run” intrigue/romance series’. You can see all Robert’s books here.
What a great opportunity to tell my story. The fact that people can benefit from my experiences is very positive. I’m excited to tell my story in this manner and hope others get something out of it that will help them in their careers.
