Robert J. Croak is a highly recognized entrepreneur due to the wildly successful Sillybandz brand that he created. Robert’s journey started out with his lower-class upbringing in the Eastside of Toledo, Ohio in a broken home. His childhood was turbulent, as the divorce of his parents created a life of instability through his teenage years; but regardless of heart-wrenching setbacks, he never lost focus of his dreams. Much of Robert’s post-college career was spent in the automotive business where he was a salesman and quickly moved up to finance manager. But after a few years pursuing a nine to five career, Robert realized very early on that the entrepreneurial path was his destiny.


Although choosing the entrepreneurial journey presents unique challenges, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Through my 30+ years of experience, I have scaled businesses from a simple napkin drawing to $100mm dollars! In each case, the path to success has been different. If you need help, whether that’s guidance for your start-up, product development, navigating retail infiltration, or scaling a mid-size business that has hit a wall with respect to growth or market penetration, I am available for longterm consulting or one-off focused calls to tackle specific questions. Simply follow the link, then schedule a time and date that works best for you.


I am always thrilled to bring value to attendees, speaking at select events that are in my wheelhouse of entrepreneurship knowledge. In the past, I have spoken at college lectures, incubator functions, e-commerce events, business growth summits, start-up meetings, and inspiring personal growth stages.
