After completing his military service in the US Coast Guard, Bob attended Texas State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Master of Education (MEd) in School Psychology.

His related work experiences include Assistant Instructor of Psychology at Texas State University, Supervisor of the Children's Forensic Clinic, Associate School Psychologist, Career Counselor, Board Certified Hypnotherapist, and Licensed Professional Counselor.
The magic in sales happened for Bob when he discovered the psychology that made sales techniques work successfully in some situations but not in others. He continued to apply varying psychological principles to his sales techniques. He quickly rose to the top producer ranks in the companies where he worked. These discoveries were published in his first book, Psychology for Successful Selling (Branden Publishing Company, 1988).
His continued studies in human motivation, buying behavior, sales process, and persuasion led him to develop a different perspective about selling, evident in his 44 ebooks/books, 25 of which became best-sellers.
Thousands of sales professionals, sales managers, and customer service representatives have been trained in the courses he's developed and offered through his company.
Today, Dr. DeGroot is changing direction from writing business books and courses to writing paranormal mystery novels.
