The 1- Minute Commute

My latest book, launched in June 2018,  reveals how to take creative charge of your career and be your own boss. Published by Pan Macmillan and available in print, digital and audiobook, it's a how-to manual for anyone starting up or looking to refresh and re-energise.


Brimming with practical exercises and case histories, it's all I know about turning your skills into a business you'll love.

Topics covered range from designing your workspace and work style, to attracting customers; getting the fees you deserve; working productively; what to do if things go pear shaped and options when it's time to grow, pivot or move on.

If you’re starting a solo business in Australia, Robert is the guy and this is the book.
— Michael Gerber, author of the E-Myth and named 'World's Number One Small Business Guru' by Inc. Magazine

Available at all good bookstores, online through Apple iBooks and Amazon (print and Kindle), in your local library (with a bit of luck) and as an audiobook at Audible.
