“One Man Brand” by Lucy Nicholson & Jassim Ahmad:
Robert Burck came to New York City determined to succeed. He worked as a stripper, a model and did “everything under the sun,” to find his way. Motivational books helped inspire him, and ultimately he figured out how to capitalize on his individuality - transforming himself into a Times Square Icon.
After meeting at the gym, Robert Burck and Cindy Fox started dating, but he was elusive about his job. To find out for herself, Cindy went to Times Square and was surprised by what she discovered.
