My job application for Dyrdek Enterprises

The very first time I saw Rob Dyrdek, he was starring in the D.C. Video tearing up streets everywhere. He hired a bodyguard named Big Black and well, the rest is history. Their part in the D.C. video was funny and it was only a glimpse as what was to come.
A couple years later MTV dropped the hit reality sit com “Rob and Big”. Somehow no matter what time you turned on the television throughout the day Rob and Big was on. It was great these guys were living the dream. They were making it big being entrepreneurial Moguls. They were truly “doin work son”.
The last episode of Rob and Big sucked because you knew there was going to be no more Mini the horse, Meaty, UAV’s, net guns, backyard skate parks, mural pools, and whack adventures like the time traveling episode (Sorry Rob). It was a loss for television entertainment.
Luckily for MTV, Rob was so gracious to grace the viewers and the network with his presence and carry on his legacy even bigger like down town New York Corpo style of big. Did you create that phrase for the video game?  I like it.  Anyhow now every week I have my DVR set to record Fantasy Factory in case I am not home and able to watch it even though MTV will probably air it twenty more times during the following week.
Every week Rob does it big and does it right. The reason this dude is so successful is because he takes risks. A wise man once told me that all of the most successful people that I could think of have taken huge risks in their life. You have to put yourself out there in order to make it big time. What is even cooler about this style is that it is the true style of the skater. You will never land a trick unless you commit one hundred percent. Yes, for the first couple of times you commit one hundred percent to do a 360 flip 360 down a twelve stair you might turn into “Baily the Bailster” but when you stick it, man all those bails will be well worth it. They will be worth it because you put yourself out on the line and you came through. Not many people in today’s world do this.
Part two of why Rob D is a C-list Celeb (hey man at least you made it on the cover of the WSJ, well all know you are A-List) is because he loves what he does and he works with what he knows. Lets check out his main money maker, it all stems from skating. He then goes on to make two hit television shows, does it big with Rogue Status, Silver Truck company, Monster, Alien Workshop (my first deck), and Reflex.
This guy loves to come to work and there is no reason he should not. He lives in a big kids play ground. He has fun day in and day out and is passionate about what he does. He is even a real estate Mogul, now that’s making it happen.
So here is my plea Rob. If life in the factory day to day is anything like the show, then work gets done and people have fun. It is anything but your typical work environment filled with cubicles and pencil pushers. You let your staff do what they do to best to achieve the end result and it works. You have the most open and creative mind when it comes to making fantasies happen. I like how anything is possible even the bizarre. Walt Disney once said “If you can dream it you can do it”. Well you put the dream into reality each and every day you do it.
I would love to come work for you at the factory.  Possibly blog about the daily factory adventures and do it big on the internet world.  I am not going to sit here and list my resume because lets face it, that is way to Corpo. Instead I am considering this a job application that I am submitting to you on Twitter. Something different and fresh. You are a creative dude and I know that you would be able to put my skills into use.
If not a job how about I just kick it with you for a day and I can blog about it. Kaliphornya.com is my site feel free to check it out. Anyhow keep making it big but more importantly keep loving your job. In the end, or so I have heard that is the true key to success.
You can reach me at kaliphornyablog@gmail.com as I take the first step to turning my fantasy into a reality.
