Daymond John started with little and made a fortune building his brand FUBU. Now he’s taking his new found star power as a Shark on the hit TV show Shark Tank to the next level. He’s built personal brand and name recognition, something that every Entrepreneur needs to be thinking about, and he’s using that power to help others who he connects with.
At first, Daymond John seemed like a distant tough negotiator that was out for him, but as you see him in action, you learn that he’s more about compassion for people that are experiencing the same trials that he struggled to overcome.
Each episode of Shark Tank reveals more of the personality of Daymond John, something that I’ve heard about from people who have met and negotiated with him directly. The more I know, the more I like and respect Daymond John.
As with all the stars from Shark Tank, he faces a challenge that most do not. He’s likely has thousands of people that are looking to connect with him, hoping that he can “save" their business, or “make" them into something they are not. That has to be difficult to deal with.
Anyone who has a goal of reaching out to Daymond John has to 1) be genuine to the core, you can’t prep yourself to connect with anyone who has a style and personality like his, 2) have serious potential with a business that is already showing results and 3) is able to connect with Daymond on an emotional level through experiences.
