    How We Learned to Pre-Pivot w/ Outstanding Foods’ Bill Glaser

    How We Learned to Pre-Pivot w/ Outstanding Foods’ Bill Glaser

    Bill had all the experience in the world, but none of it was in food. When he partnered with a top vegan chef to create the pigless bacon chip and create a new snack category, he ran into massive co-packer issues . With product already in stores, he had to pull off an unprecedented 11th hour pivot to save the company. He did, in record time, and the experience drove Rob to add the “pre-pivot” to the Machine Method.

    Market Testing a Brand Changes Everything w/ Mindright’s Chris “Bernie” Bernard

    Market Testing a Brand Changes Everything w/ Mindright’s Chris “Bernie” Bernard

    Rob and Bernie knew exactly how to market Mindright’s mood enhancing, feel good blend of nootropic superfood ingredients. Then the test market told them they were absolutely, unquestionably wrong. This is about the importance of validating our assumptions, rather than assuming we’re right, and being willing to evolve our instincts to create something even more profound.

    How to Build a Company for Exit w/ Superjacket’s Shane Nickerson

    Shane first entered Rob’s orbit as a story editor on Rob & Big. Together, they formed Superjacket, which went on to produce all of Rob’s MTV shows. Superjacket was created with a 3-year timeline to sell, which, with a lot of hard work and a little magic, succeeded right on schedule. Before they even started the company, they leveraged their unique advantages, agreed on a clear goal, mapped every action to that goal, and the goal was realized.

Thank you Rob!!!

I’ve grown up with Rob D. As a part of my life since skate magazines as a kid. Through business school, grad school, and law school, he has been a part of my life all the way. As I have grown, I have watched Rob grow as a man, mogul, and father. This show is just the next piece of the greatness Rob continues to share with the world and inspire all of us! Thanks Rob!!!
