Daymond John is CEO and founder of FUBU, a much-celebrated global lifestyle brand with more than $6 billion in sales. Now in his 8th season on ABC’s three-time Emmy award winning series, Shark Tank, John continues to challenge himself in all aspects of business. A New York Times Best Selling author for his 2016 book, The Power of Broke, Daymond’s commitment to entrepreneurship has been celebrated on a global level. In 2015, he was named a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship and was part of an exclusive group who joined President Obama at the Global Entrepreneur Summit in Kenya, and traveled with The President on his historic trip to Cuba last March. Additionally, this month Daymond is set to launch blueprint+co, a creative executive co-working space with a mission to educate and empower by building a community of like-minded entrepreneurs that can benefit from Daymond’s resources and track record of success.
In this episode, Daymond and I talk about the viability of co-working space for the entrepreneurial community and how blueprint+co is giving people access to the resources they need to grow their businesses. Daymond has taken a particular interest in blueprint+co from the creative side and the business side. He tells us why he chose to be more involved than one of the usual passive investment opportunities that come his way. We discuss where the “blueprint” in blueprint+co comes from which is modeled after the foundation building aspects that every entrepreneur should be following to build a successful organization from the ground up. Daymond talks about what type of entrepreneur should consider a co-working space and where you can go to apply and become a part of this exciting new venture. We wrap things up with a very interesting personal discussion about Daymond, his life and how he has evolved as an entrepreneur throughout the years. Hope you all enjoy… To Learn More about Daymond and blueprint+co, visit Blueprintandco.com
