Being an entrepreneur is a challenging and exciting path. It can also be incredibly frustrating. Over the years I have devoting my life to starting and building companies, assessing and evaluating a need for a product or service. I have succeeded on many different levels. I have also suffered great failures. I started a real estate development company, a day trading enterprise, a solar installation company, Hummingbird Sports, a female focused lifestyle company with an emphasis on the female athlete. and I am proud to add to my list, I am a best selling author on Amazon. A large part of my journey as an entrepreneur is learning from all of my experiences. The life of an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. But the life lessons, rewards and growth doesn’t take a back seat to any career.
I am not a scientist. I am not an engineer. But I can proudly say I am the creator of the first ever ASTM approved and SEI Certified headgear for girls Lacrosse. The making of this headgear was one of the toughest journey’s I have ever had to endure but also one of the most rewarding. The making of this headgear taught me not only the difficult process it takes to make a brand new product but also showed me how with determination and drive to never give up. Many nights, I wanted to throw in the towel, call it quits. But I hung tough and saw it to the final completion, which started me on a second challenging road to marketing and promoting the product.
My greatest creations and my most prized journey, without a doubt, are my four amazing daughters and my role as their father. There will never be a company that I start or a product that I invent that will ever replace them as my number ones. They have taught me more about myself than I will ever know and the best part is the journey is lifelong. I cherish each chapter and look forward to every path in the future with them.
I am the Amazon best selling author of “It’s a No-Brainer: An Entrepreneur’s Battle to Reduce Concussions in Girls’ Lacrosse.” This was a journey I could never have pictured myself taking ever and in my book I share my personal stories starting from my trauma filled childhood, to how I was able to endure despite multiple roadblocks, failures and obstacles. Buy a copy and read my personal journey for yourself.
It’s a No-Brainer: An Entrepreneur’s Battle to Reduce Concussions in Girls’ Lacrosse is the story behind the heart of Hummingbird Sports and why Rob Stolker and his family and friends created the first-ever ASTM-approved girls’/women’s lacrosse headgear.
Throughout the book, you will hear stories from girls who have suffered life-changing head injuries while playing lacrosse—most often from a single ball or stick to their unprotected heads—how their families have struggled watching their loved one’s in pain, and the science behind why all girls who play lacrosse need to be wearing head protection today!
It’s a No-Brainer tells the story of how the inventor, Rob Stolker, and his team at Hummingbird Sports struggled through the ups and downs of making state-of-the-art headgear. The company soon became a groundbreaking girls’ sports industry–changing lifestyle and sports equipment brand that continues to advocate for increased safety measures in the game of girls’ lacrosse. Hummingbird has made products and apparel designed specifically for girls and women and has made a real and lasting change for female athletes everywhere.
