We had the honor to interview legendary entrepreneur Daymond John, the founder of FUBU currently known best as a panelist on ABC’s Shark Tank. A successful self-made branding mogul, Mr. John now embraces the assistance he can provide to other people chasing the same dreams by investing in the companies of aspiring entrepreneurs.

Daymond John was one of the driving forces who transcended hip hop from a street culture to a multi-billion dollar industry, creating a new lane of success for budding entrepreneurs across the world. Mr. John’s first brand, FUBU, has amassed over $6 billion in global sales, and continues to be one of the world’s most iconic brands.

Watch as he breaks down growing up in Hollis, Queens during the heyday of Run DMC to how he was able to make the leap to build his own brand and in turn, discover what characteristics he looks for in business partners and financial endeavors.

This is, without a doubt, one of the most compelling and inspiring interviews we have ever conducted, as Mr. John’s words really had an impact on all of us here at Elite. He is an inspiration for anyone who wants to achieve their dreams, and this interview should give some insight on how to remain focused and realistic in the quest for attaining one’s goals.

Elite.
