Take a Shot: A Conversation With Rob Dyrdek, Dyrdek Machine


When it comes to confidence, what’s your mentality? Are you worried about failure, or do you have a ‘take the shot’ approach? Do you allow yourself to constantly evolve as a person, or are you stuck in limbo?

Welcome to this episode of What Unites Us, a podcast about building businesses meant to last. We aim to answer some of the toughest questions about branding, leadership, and success while talking to business trailblazers about their biggest lessons learned. 

Today, we sit down with Rob Dyrdek, entrepreneur, TV personality, and former professional skateboarder, to discuss how he has evolved, the preconceived notions people have about him, how to gain confidence, and so much more.
