Meet the Locals: Rob ‘Kingfish’ Wood Finds the Key to Life on the Beach

“Every day is a holiday,” says Rob Wood, a 30A local who can be found most days enjoying life on Grayton Beach.

This mindset, Wood says, is the key to happiness, and after escaping the rat race of a long corporate career, he has found that happiness here on 30A. Wood sat down with 30A Radio to chat about his life journey and his book, The Kingfish Way, which promotes living in the moment and forging a full and happy life.

Wood has worked in accounting, manufacturing, human resources, consulting, stock market trading and public speaking, and now that he’s settled here at the beach, he’s working to foster and grow entrepreneurial opportunities for others.

Check out Wood’s book, The Kingfish Way.
