Daymond John is considered the face of American entrepreneurship as the founder and CEO of FUBU, a Shark on the 4-time Emmy Award-winning Shark Tank, a New York Times bestselling author, a pioneer in the fashion industry, a branding guru, and a highly sought-after motivational speaker.
Brian Lamb is a Managing Director and Segment Head for Middle Market Banking & Specialized Industries (MMBSI) covering the Northeast for JPMorgan Chase Commercial Banking. Previously serving for two years as the firm’s global head of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Brian has been instrumental in driving forward the firm’s $30 billion commitment to racial equity.
The episode dives into Daymond’s entrepreneurial instinct, prompting raw reflections on his personal failures and how he learned from them to build his multi-million dollar empire. In explaining his entrepreneurial thinking, he points out that everything you see “starts with somebody who had one idea, who took one step forward” and he discusses his role in igniting impactful change across all areas of life and business to benefit future generations.
Lamb ties in his own experiences through a corporate leadership perspective, discussing his influential role as the first-ever global head of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at JPMorgan Chase & Co., as well as what leaders are doing wrong and how they can commit to DE&I in a company. He delves into the firm’s impressive $30 billion commitment to racial equity–of which Lamb was heavily involved in–aimed at advancing economic growth in Black, Hispanic, and Latino communities. Lamb talks through the social and racial awakening of 2020 with hard-hitting truths: “It shouldn’t take for someone to die, for us to listen to one another”.
Minutillo expertly weaves in trending topics like the evolution of AI, the Metaverse, and social movements to uncover expert insight from John and Lamb about navigating these fast-changing trend cycles as entrepreneurs.
