Blank is helping people around the world find their dreams and
work towards achieving them. His book, The Success
of Robert Fitzgibbons, offers inspiration and
encouragement to people of all ages to follow their
dreams. Eric is a living example of Robert Fitzgibbons.
After graduating from The Wharton School of the University
of Pennsylvania, Eric traveled extensively in the United
States and overseas. During these travels, he experienced
different cultures and connected with many individuals-
some of whom were following their dreams and many of whom
felt trapped by their circumstances in life. Eric has
continued to study what motivates people and learn about
blocks that keep us from following our dreams.
Eric has always been involved with helping others.
Before attending law school, he participated in local
community affairs and neighborhood safety in Philadelphia.
Even in those days, Eric saw the need to help people. On his law
school application, he wrote, "Individuals need to understand
that the rights granted by laws do not require a college
education, business ownership or financial success. Laws are
intended to protect our rights and not to be a language only
understood by a few.”
It was this
desire to unify people from all walks of life that led Eric to
study law. After receiving his degree from the University of
Arizona College of Law, Eric provided legal and business
counsel for NBC and FOX affiliate television stations. It was
during this time that Eric began to appreciate how a person
speaking out can help change a situation into one where people
produced and hosted an informational consumer-driven legal
show, “The Brief”, the goal of which was to help make the law
understandable for all people. “The Brief” and BlankBrief.com
provide people the opportunity to change the way the legal
profession operates and empowers them to have the law work for
them. He has appeared on both ABC Action News and Fox-5 News
providing legal opinions and analysis for current headline
stories. In addition, his articles have appeared in the Las
Vegas Business Press and Jewish Reporter.
after practicing law for several years that Eric began to
realize while his legal career was fulfilling, his true dream
was to become an author and to help others realize their own
dreams. The Success of Robert Fitzgibbons is a personal
journey for Eric, and he hopes to inspire and motivate others
with his story. Eric then developed the Dreams Workshop – a
workshop created specifically for children of all ages where
he personally reads his book aloud to his audience, engaging
the audience by having each person interpret a part of his
story by creating illustrations (some of which will be chosen
for his books!) He then ends with discussing the importance
of staying true to yourself and following your own dream.
Currently, Eric is bringing his Dreams Workshop to schools in
and around the Las Vegas area.
