This world is busy, cluttered, and crowded - so it is no small feat when a person is able to cut through all the noise, and establish for themselves an solid reputation for excellence and achievement.
As one of 18 children raised in a busy household in Milwaukee's infamous 53206 zip code. This experience has shaped the framework for this gentleman's success. It was clearly instilled by his parents expectation of him.
Born into a household that valued and cherished family, Mr. Robert Simpson was taught to appreciate what he had and to be grateful for the opportunities afforded him. Growing up, Mr. Simpson learned that "it doesn't matter if the glass is half empty or half full; be thankful you have a glass. and grateful that there's something in it."
He saw first hand how hard his father worked to improve his children's future, while establishing high expectations for their future success. "My parents instilled in me the value of work. It started at home with assigned responsibilities ( as a kid ), and evolved into...getting into the workforce as a teenager...( we were expected to represent) the Simpson family by being groomed, articulate and respectful."
Mr. Simpson asserts that he desires to share with Milwaukee's youth the truth about having full control over their destiny! There is so much growth and development happening in our city and the opportunities are endless by focusing on a STEM education or trade. It is possible to realize the dreams for their families.
