15 Apr Shark Tank’s Daymond John has 5 tips for vet entrepreneurs By: Natalie Gross
Daymond John knows a thing or two about running a successful business.
Before he became known as the “People’s Shark” on ABC’s hit reality series, “Shark Tank,” John turned a bag of hats and an idea into the multi-million dollar apparel company FUBU. And since then, he’s mentored many an entrepreneur seeking to do the same thing.
