Today we’d like to introduce you to Rob Floyd.
Hi Rob, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
Like many of us, I am in an “accidental profession.” I never intended on following a path of bartending and entertainment… Crazy how life works out. I have lived all over the world but now get to live in the greatest place ever. I Have starred on one of America’s top TV shows for the past 7 years, Bar Rescue. I have live cocktail shows run all over the world as well as 3 new company partnerships.
The first is with pop star Cardi B and brilliant innovator Ross Sklar. We have just launched an alcoholic whip cream called “Whip Shots.” It is an incredible experience to have fantastic flavors with whip cream and vodka. They are shelf-stable (meaning they do not need to be refrigerated and they are non-dairy.
The second is we stream cocktail content and entertainment videos out of our Franklin studios all over the world. We have done over 200 since the pandemic started and we are only getting busier.
Finally, I have launched a new CBD company called “Harmony.” I have been blessed to work with a brilliant man named Rick Anson on non-THC nanotechnology. This enables me to not only make great tasting and healthy beverages for people but also to expand to whole-body wellness.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Every day and there are incredible challenges. So many times, you are not sure you can go on, or what to make of what is happening. Setbacks are never easy and try the best of us. These are the moments where I rephrase the questions, I ask myself and remember why I started this company. I want to change the way we experience a drink and enhance the lives around me. I want to make people happy and as a company make. Sure, I give back. In Franklin, I have partnered with the Heritage Foundation and Williamson County animal shelter.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Rob Floyd Entertainment?
I specialize in Global beverage and entertainment. I have 1000’s of cocktail shows that run all over the world and run beverage programs that do incredible numbers. I star on TV and streaming shows as well as have several companies under my umbrella.
Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
Keep focused on your goals and make them absolutely ridiculous, fun, inspiring and so exciting you can barely sleep thinking about them. Write the goals out and tell people you are doing it. When I started out in college I auditioned for several plays at school and always got cut. I found a community theatre where I got to be in the chorus. All the time I was telling anyone who would listen that I was going to be on daytime TV in 5 years. Everyone laughed at me, but that drove me harder to work like crazy and to accomplish my goal. After so many ups and downs, years of studying and performing it happened. 4 years later, I was on a show called All My Children opposite Kelly Ripa. I had a wonderful acting career, but that only started by planting a seed, a dream, that everyone laughed at but I never gave up on.
The same has happened on my beverage career. Crazy things happen when you believe in yourself, write it down, and outwork everyone around you.
