Hi Lauren

Welcome to my Hey Lauren, you should hire Rob blog. In it I am going to try to convince you to hire me. I am going to say lots of glowing things about my qualifications and abilities and hassle my friends and family to leave nice comments. I'll shamelessly brag about my CrossFit times and go on about what a great, smart, hardworking, etc. guy I am.

(Ordinarily I'm not so egotistical, but it is hard to capture someone's attention from 1800 miles away.)

I'm sure you got a lot of interest in the editor job, but I really think I am the best candidate for the job. I have spent a lot of time learning how to communicate clearly, simply and passionately. I know what it takes to engage your audience, and I know the CrossFit material. I hope you'll give me a shot. I'd be willing to do some projects for free, or work part time for a while, or whatever I need to do to get this job.

Thanks Lauren.
P.S. That's me at the St. Louis Oly Cert held this March. Brown shirt on the left.


  1. Hi Lauren,
    My name is Lori Fritz and I work with Rob. Lately he has been showing me and some other people at work how to CrossFit, and he really knows his stuff. I think he would be great at this job.

  2. Lauren, this is Stephen. I work out with Rob. If he edits half as hard as he works out he'll be the best employee you've ever had.

  3. Hey Lauren,
    Rob is my older brother. Growing up he was pretty good to me - other than the spaghetti incident when I was eight. He'd probably work pretty good for you, as long as you kept him away from all pasta.
    Thanks, Susan

  4. Lauren,
    This is Glenn Bernet. I am Robert's father. I have known Robert for quite some time now and have found him to be a fine upstanding young man of high moral character and excellent diction. If you would care to discuss his qualifications please don't hesitate to contact me.

  5. Hi Lauren, this is Lois, I'm Rob's mom. My little Robbis has always been such a sweet boy and so smart. I know he will do a fine job for you. If he doesn't you just let me know and I'll give him a stern talking to.

  6. Hi Lauren, I'm Rob's brother-in-law, Todd. I've known Rob for 15 years now, and I think he's a pretty cool guy. I mean he gave me a chance and let me marry his sister despite my glaring faults. So I'd sure appreciate it if you gave him a chance too. He deserves it.
