The Man Looking to Make 10,000 New Friends

The Man Looking to Make 10,000 New Friends

Rob Lawless left the corporate world to make 10,000 new friends. Through one hour meetings (now gone virtual) Rob gets to know people. Posting about his meetings – and new friendships – via Instagram, Rob shares not only about one person but about human connections. So far he’s met several thousand people from over 60 countries and across the United States. Through his unique project, Rob has learned about the world, experienced new things and made new friends. Rob’s project has been featured on The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Today Show with Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, and he’s been interviewed by Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.
