'Apprentice' finalist speaks at chamber banquet

Print Article

POST FALLS - Clint Robertson reached in his real estate background tool bag to give the "sticks and bricks" of how to build your life.

Robertson, runner-up on Donald Trump's reality business competition TV series "The Apprentice" last year, was the keynote speaker during the Post Falls Chamber of Commerce's annual banquet and awards ceremony Thursday.

He encouraged attendees to use faith, fitness and family to build a strong foundation.

"Make sure you do some inspections," Robertson said. "The Lord has given you the desires of your heart. That's where he's going to use you."

Robertson said he has taken a look at his own life and is planning to make health changes.

"I was the fat guy on the show, but I'm not going to be that way anymore," he said. "The sticks and bricks of your life is your health."

Robertson, who has leased a Post Falls home with his wife and their three boys for more than a year, said family and friends are important to help you get through tough times. He said his real estate title firm in Texas was riding high until the market nose dived in 2008. The experience reminded him who is really important in life.

"If there's one thing you've got in life, it's each other," he said.

Don't let bitterness to others build, he said.

"Be the person who mends those relationships," the 40-year-old said. "If you've got a bad relationship, extend the olive branch."
