Hi, my name is Rob Clinton, also known as Robert de Brus on many of my writing platforms. From victory to failure, I’ve lived the typical American employee to entrepreneur story of rising and falling like a repeating broken record.
However, as my clarity became stronger through each fall-out I became wiser, and I now bring a wealth of real-life experience to the business world as a coach, consultant, writer, and visionary who can spot opportunities for solutions where others only see problems.
As a former career coach and founder of 180 Career Coaching, I’ve published many releases through blogs, publications, and e-books on career clarity and life planning.
I’ve been endorsed by highly-respected greats like Dan Miller, best-selling author of 48 Days to the Work You Love, became a certified DISC personality style instructor, and focused primarily on helping people understand their worth, get clear and get moving.
I’m currently helping businesses look beyond their problems, think bigger than average, and take action on those hidden opportunities leveraging today’s technology.
My blog can be found here at http://entrepreneurv2.com/, and you can find me published on other larger publications such as Motivation Grid, The Good Men Project, Get Motivation, Addicted2Success, and 48 Days, LLC.
Read below for some nice things people say about me.
~Dan Miller, Career Coach and Best Selling Author of 48 Days to the Work You Love
“Rob is an accomplished coach, writer and speaker. He can gently help you see new ways of thinking and moving towards goals that you may now think are impossible. You will find that Rob brings a wealth of enthusiasm and insight to the coaching process as he guides you through the process of overcoming obstacles.”
“I’ve watched Rob grow into a solid leader and coach over the past few years. He has a passion and drive that isn’t seen in many individuals today. Additionally, I have heard several of his clients say that he has guided them to new levels of success and achievement. Rob is a man of character who you can trust, and he has a burning desire to help others come alive and succeed.”
“We are only as good as the books and the people we surround ourselves with. Rob is a rare breed of passion and drive. He’s a champion leader, and I’ve watched him grow as a coach over the years into an inspiration for many others. I have found his leadership skills and his ability to guide others to new levels of success extremely powerful. His love for what he does demonstrates clearly by his living example, through his work, and through the people he serves. I know what he’s capable of, and I know he has a burning desire to help others come alive and succeed.”
CEO / Strength Leader Development http://www.strengthleader.com/
“Rob is the rare breed of coach who both talks the talk and walks the walk. His ability to connect with clients and guide them through the coaching process is remarkable and he has the results to prove it
“Rob has a huge heart for helping people that need help making career decisions and was very impressed with how much he helped me in such a short amount of time. As I continue on my journey I will always remember him as someone who played a great role in my life and want to share him with the world any time I get a chance.”
“If you are looking for career guidance I would highly recommend Rob. Rob teaches you to not only focus on your career but on all aspects of your life and how each area affects the other. Through Rob’s comprehensive life assessment process, I now not only know what I want in a career but how to get there.”
“Rob helped pull me out of a funk and got me excited about life again.”

“When I say that I consider Rob to be genuine coach, and friend, I mean he truly knows his stuff, has a heart of gold, and will absolutely do what it takes to help you succeed. Everyone needs a coach like Rob walking with them on their journey, whether its business or life transforming, hire him today! You won’t regret it.”
“Rob really influenced me to think outside the box and embrace the idea of work being just one more outlet of who i really am. I found Rob to be very professional, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Rob to my family and friends.”
“Rob brings a quiet, yet highly effective strength to his coaching process. He draws you in by his natural abilities, one being a great listener, and encourages you to go to greater heights. He is patient and truly cares about you as a person and your success. Rob has a gift for bringing to the surface what has been buried inside for years. He celebrates and embraces those discoveries as if they were his own.
When I engaged Rob as my coach I truly had no idea what to expect other then what he had conveyed on paper. But I soon discovered his style of coaching was a perfect fit for my personality and communication style. He is a cheerleader when you are having trouble moving past a hurdle. He helps you to see the mountain top one step at a time. He takes your hand in the process to let you know you are not alone on the journey .
I wish everyone could hire a coach like Rob to help them soar like an eagle. Investing in my future, through his services, is the best decision I could have made. I am moving forward in confidence because of him.”
“Rob’s expertise and thoroughness is only surpassed by the passion he brings to the people and projects he aligns himself with.
His demeanor makes him approachable and easy to confide in.”
“Having someone who understood the principles, and would be there regularly w/ advice and the experience to know how to answer questions and concerns I had, was absolutely invaluable. I would recommend anyone use Rob as a career coach.”
“Rob is not only a powerful coach and an incredible leader but also a cherished friend. He pours his heart into his work, and he is committed to the success of his clients. Rich with insights, blessed with talents and shining with passion, Rob contributes tremendously to any endeavor. I am blessed by his friendship, and I very much look forward to working with him in the future. I highly recommend working with Rob, as his love for God and for others is the drive for all he does.”
Rev. Matthew Gunia
“To someone who’s been job-hunting for a while, I’d tell them about the loving accountability, the encouragement, and the critical thinking questions Rob provides. I’d also tell them about the benefit of having an experienced professional take a fresh look at resumes and cover letters, and to suggest new targeted companies and job-hunting strategies. To one who’s dissatisfied in their current position and is looking for a change, I’d talk about the critical thinking questions Rob asks to help you determine what sort of career move would suit you best, I’d talk about his professional help developing cover letters, resumes, and interviewing strategies.”
CEO at The Leader Forge
“Rob is an authentic, passionate coach and mentor. His ability to come alongside others and provide solid encouragement and solutions is fantastic.”
“Just a quick message to thank you for your one simple question you asked me months ago. I remember saying that I was a Graphic Designer with years of experience. You then asked something to the effect of, “Yeah, so what….tell me what your customers say about you.” Well, as my son would say, “D’uh…” It totally made me take a hard look inward and I started to talk to my clients a bit more about it. Then I started marketing myself way differently and business has taken off! I’ve been able to bring my son home to home school also (which was EXACTLY what I always wanted to do.) Thank you so much. *pats on the back*”
“I have gotten to know Rob over the last couple of years as we have participated together in a mastermind group. He provides a great balance of creativity, energy, and sincerity. Rob makes things happen and speaks the truth.”
“Rob and his method was a perfect fit for me. His personality style, his niche and the way he communicates was a tailor fit for me. I have full confidence that if we were not a good fit that he would have referred me to another person with a different approach. “
“From my first interaction with Rob I felt the warmth, sincerity and compassion you find very seldom. He truly listens – that in itself is an art and a gift – and beyond that, he hears what is not said. He seems to have the knack of being totally transparent and down to earth while never losing his optimism and positive view of circumstances and the world.”
“I have never used a coach, nor have I have ever thought of using a coach until now. Rob’s approach to my self discovery allowed me to see what I was really all about and draw upon those attributes so that I could move forward with much more confidence and boldness. His listening, action planning and attention to detail was very rewarding, encouraging, motivating, and inspiring. Thanks Rob for everything!”
“Rob is a patient and thorough coach. Our lives are too busy and our minds are too scattered to try and travel down our career paths alone. I highly encourage you to seek out a coach (Rob would be a great place to start) that will help you become the person God intended you to become. Very little good happens by accident so be intentional with your life and start by hiring Rob.”
“In working with Rob, I have found his communication skills, his follow through on tasks and his listening skill to be excellent. These abilities and his desire to help others are what make his coaching skills so strong.”
“We are only as good as those we surround ourselves with.” I am very proud to say that I selected Rob Clinton to work on my team as a leader. His determination to lead our group to success was key in our projects, and it takes someone special to tackle that type of endeavor.”

“Well, let’s put it this way: Rob’s heart for helping others is amazing. He has a servants attitude and the “in depth” knowledge to guide people down a path towards positive change. I learn something everyday from his insight.
Take note, you will be a changed person, for the better, if you start following him today…….”
“Rob Clinton? If I were to list all of his highest qualities and achievements, well, let’s just say the whole world wide web wouldn’t have enough storage space to list them all!
I know, it may seem that I am stretching this a bit, but in all seriousness I would recommend Rob as a Life/Career Coach and genuine friend to anyone, and at any time. This guy is the real deal! Thanks Rob for your friendship, mentorship, and for sharing true success principles with everyone you come in contact with, including me.”

“I first met Rob at Dan Miller’s April 2011 Write to the Bank Event in TN. I recall this quite well because I was 8 months pregnant at the time! Rob was personal and professional and I remember thinking, “I’d like to pick this guy’s brain.”
Since that time I have had connections with him at Kent Julian’s Speak It Forward Bootcamp (October 2011) and via Dan Miller’s www.48days.net community. It’s evident that Rob is a great communicator and truly cares about helping others reach their full potential. I highly recommend Rob as the real deal – and (perhaps most importantly) as a genuine “good guy.”
