Bob Sellers is an Emmy-winning journalist, Forbes author, Fortune contributor, and former anchor at CNBC and Fox News. He talks about success in business -- and life -- after interviewing hundreds of business leaders and hearing their stories about success -- and failure! As the author of Forbes Best Business Mistakes: How Today's Top Business Leaders Turned Missteps into Success, Bob has heard inspiring stories from some of the legends of American business, including Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Peter Lynch, Suze Orman, Jack Welch, Jeff Bezos and many others.
But Bob hasn't stopped there. He has read hundreds of books on success and talked to some of the authors about their insight as well. He puts together some of the best advice he has ever heard to guide and inspire audiences, making them realize that success is never a straight line -- but it's inevitable with the right steps and the right attitude.
A writing coach at Vanderbilt University, Bob is a contributor to Fortune, MarketWatch.com, and HuffPo. He serves on the Board of Advisors for the Media Studies Department at the University of Virginia (his alma mater), and is the founder of Message2Media, a media consulting firm.
