Bobby Berk’s Epic Story of Going from Broke & Hopeless to Interior Design Success & Queer Eye Fame


How can you stay resilient and not lose hope when it feels like life is blocking all your exit routes? Bobby Berk, design expert and Emmy nominated TV host of Queer Eye was just a high school dropout from Missouri who yearned to escape and find his place in the world. After some rough years of living in his car, getting jail time, barely scraping by financially, and being told he’d never amount to anything, he continued to bet on himself, say “yes” even when he had no clue what he was doing, and has become one of the most acclaimed interior designers today. He shares how you can dust yourself off after a setback, why it’s a blessing to not have a roadmap, how to stop yourself from falling into the comparison trap, and why embracing your uniqueness is the most important key to success.

1. Even if every exit in the parking lot is closed, you’ll find a way out.
2. What’s the worst that can happen? You’ll reinvent yourself again.
3. Say yes and figure it out later.
4. Comparison doesn’t go away. You have to learn how to stop allowing it in and realize that the only person that can be you is you. You are the best version of yourself.
5. The best way to succeed is to be unique and not try to be anyone else. No one else can be you.
6. There’s a blessing in not having a roadmap.
7. Just try it. If it works, great. If it doesn’t, you’ll try something else. Dust yourself off and try again.
