Entertainment Entrepreneur Careers: Rob Dyrdek guides students through an entertainment career

Best known for his roles in reality TV, Rob actually got his start when he was just 12 years old. His relentless pursuit to follow his dreams made Rob a pro skateboarder early on. Check out his story!

We humanize career exploration by featuring real humans doing real things. Our mentors provide candid advice on how they got started and steps to get there.

Rob was just a kid in Ohio when he got his very first skateboard —this would prove to be the beginning of an exciting journey. Twelve-year-old Dyrdek knew he had found his calling after receiving a sponsorship only 6 months after he got that skateboard.

Rob Dyrdek on finding his grind

“You have to look deep inside yourself and say, ‘self, what is it that truly gives me energy?'”
