Robert Preble, a native of Maine, relocated to Seattle as a young college graduate. He became successful through lumber sales after he learned the magic of empathy when used as the bedrock of sales and as the foundation for spiritual living. Robert invested heavily into international travel experiences to India, Sri Lanka, Peru, Brazil, Eastern and Western Europe, New Zealand and Pakistan in the early 80's. He considers the best investment he has made to date, or ever will make, to be the airline tickets to far away cultures. These adventures became the catalyst for fascination with Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and many other spiritual perspectives. He became the father of a wonderful daughter in 1987. In the early 90s, he became a kindergarten and elementary school teacher to 'give back' a bit. He re-entered the business world in 2000.
