BUILDING MY BRAND: DOPE ARTICLES WORTH READING - (SINCE AGE 18 - ROB DYRDEK)

Posted on September 09 2019

THIS BLOG SEGMENT IS DEDICATED NOT ONLY THE GROWTH OF MY OWN BRAND, BUT TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN AND/OR BUILDING THEIR OWN BRAND.  I READ ABOUT BRAND BUILDING ALL THE TIME.  FROM NOW ON, WHENEVER I RUN ACROSS AN ARTICLE THAT SPEAKS DIRECTLY TO ME, I WILL REPOST IT HERE.  HOPEFULLY, SOME OF THE BOWTIE COMMUNITY ALSO FINDS VALUE IN THE JEWELS I RUN ACROSS WHILE WORKING ON MINE, THROUGH THIS EFFORT TO SHARE THE INFORMATION.

 

 

PEACE AND NAMASTE.

 

BOWTIE.

“THE DEGREE TO WHICH WE LISTEN TO AND ACT ON OUR CALLINGS DETERMINES HOW FULFILLED WE ARE WITH OUR LIVES.”  AMY KESSEL

 

IF YOU NOTICE, THE WORD “CALLINGS” IS USED; THE PLURAL OF CALLING.  THIS WORD INFERS WE ALL HAVE MULTIPLE CALLINGS IN OUR LIVES. NOT JUST ONE.  PERSONALLY, I BELIEVE AND HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS FIRSTHAND.  SOME OF MY CALLINGS INCLUDE: ATHLETICS, ACADEMICS, ENGINEERING AND QUALITY PROFESSIONS, TRUE FATHERHOOD, TUTORING, SOON TO BE AUTHOR – HEADING TOWARDS PUBLISHED AUTHOR AND CURRENTLY, BUILDING MY BRAND.  IT HAS AND CONTINUES TO BE A ROLLER COASTER OF LIFE.  THIS IS NOT PERSONAL BRAVADO IN ANY WAY.  THESE ARE ALL CALLINGS FOR ME AND I HAVE EMBRACED EACH ONE, OVER THE YEARS THAT ARE MY LIFE.

 

WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?

 

IT MEANS THAT I AM DRAWN TO WHAT I LOVE.  LOVE AND PAIN COME WITH EACH ON THIS SHORT LIST OF ITEMS.  HOWEVER, I CHOSE THEM BASED OF BEING DRAWN TO THEM.  THE LOVE DEVELOPED IN THE MIDST OF EACH.

 

THIS POST WILL FOCUS ON ONE OF THEM IN PARTICULAR…BUILDING MY BRAND.

 

“I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO THIS.”  THESE ARE THE WORDS THAT CHIMED IN MY MIND, OVER AND OVER, ONCE REALIZING THIS IS THE CHOICE I’VE MADE.

 

”I AM GOING TO BUILD A BRAND!”

 

I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I HAD GOTTEN MYSELF INTO. 

 

AS A LIFETIME STUDENT, I DID WHAT STUDENTS DO.  WE STUDY.  ONE OF THE PLACES I FOUND WAS A SHOW NAMED, “ROB AND BIG”.  THIS IS A REALITY TELEVISION SHOW THAT FOLLOWED THE LIVES OF PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDER ROB DYRDEK AND HIS BEST FRIEND/BODYGUARD CHRISTOPHER “BIG BLACK” BOYKIN (R.I.P.).  THIS IS WHERE I FIRST SAW ROB DYRDEK.  FOLLOWING THIS GUY’S JOURNEY, READING HIS STORY AND WATCHING HOW HE MOVED…I HAVE LEARNED QUITE A LOT.  MOREOVER, PART OF HIS STRATEGY I ADOPTED.

 

FOR ME, THIS IS A TRULY AMAZING ENTREPRENEUR AND BUSINESSPERSON.  THE ATTACHED ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED ON FOUNDR.COM.  BY THE WAY, FOUNDR.COM HAS QUICKLY BECOME A PLACE I FREQUENT TO READ ABOUT SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE/ENTREPRENEURS.  IT IS ONE OF MY SOURCES FOR INFORMATION AND INSPIRATION.

 

IN MY OPINION, FOR ANYONE ASPIRING TOWARDS BRAND BUILDING, THIS SHORT ARTICLE DOES A GOOD JOB OF INTRODUCING ROB AND SUMMARIZING HIS JOURNEY.  I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS I HAVE.

 

MORE ABOUT ROB CAN BE FOUND AT HIS WEBSITE:  DYRDEKMACHINE.COM

 

MUCH SUCCESS TO YOU!
