We had the good fortune of connecting with Larry Robinson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Larry, why did you pursue a creative career?
I believe being a creative/creator entrepreneur is in my DNA…Great-Grandfather (entrepreneur, architecture/housing), Grandfather (entrepreneur, architecture/housing), Dad (entrepreneur, muralist, fine artist), Mom (artist /pottery) and uncles (carpenters, real estate developer). All of them have embarked on entrepreneurial endeavors and It became apparent to me that I was an entrepreneur when I was working in Corporate America and I was not able to make the decision necessary to improve business and revenue.
The creative part’s genesis was being an “only child” and due to spending so much time alone, I developed an extremely vivid imagination. I had a completely different life between my ears! Having a creative career allows me to bring to life many of the thoughts, visions, and dreams that lived only in my mind.

I learned from his story that you have to keep pushing and TEAMWORK truly makes the DREAM work! I have a saying Life is a Team Sport and your success is predicated on how well you are a player/coach. Mr. Russell embodied those beliefs and he serves as a source of motivation during difficult times.
