Top 30 under 30 awards: 2011 Up & Comers-Shaun C. Robinson

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I see Strong College Students Moving as the national/international brand I know it will become with locations across the country and expanding into countries like Canada, England or Australia. I see myself in a role of chairman of the board with a youthful and energetic CEO taking this brand to levels I hadn’t imagined.
What’s the best part of your day? It’s exciting to see our brightly colored trucks on the road because when I do I know there are hardworking college student earning their way through school while providing our clients with fun, enjoyable and memorable moving experiences. We have a chance to help someone new every day. For that reason my job is extremely rewarding!
What was the rock star moment of your career? It’s hard to stop and analyze that right now, I believe our brand is just embarking on developing “rock star status.” I know we have many rock star moments ahead.
What advice would you give to future Up & Comers? You can make any job a job you’ll enjoy and be proud of.
Trust me moving isn’t glamorous or exciting to most. However by developing our brand around values and ideals that were important to me I’ve created a job I enjoy and get excited about.
You have the power to do that in your career as well. It’s your life. Take charge, and make your dreams a reality.
What charity or nonprofit do you support most and why? I proudly support ASAP Homeless Services as president of the board. I believe no one should be homeless or feel helpless, I strive to use my talents and skill set to support, encourage and advocate for homelessness. This is a problem that can be solved with cooperation, a little attention and a lot of compassion and understanding from us all.
