29 Jun S02:E11: Daymond John and the New Carl’s Jr. Baby Back Rib Burger
Did you know that 65% of the wealthiest people in the world are self-made? CEO of FUBU and The Shark Group, and Co-Star of ABC’s Emmy-Award winning reality show Shark Tank, Daymond John, took the retail world by storm after launching FUBU from his home in Queens with only $40 in start-up capital. This rags-to-riches journey wasn’t an overnight success story; Daymond persevered through a multitude of growing pains as he scaled his urban sportswear brand to the fashion juggernaut we know and love today.
Never one to shy away from a new challenge, Daymond has invested in Bubba’s Boneless Ribs, a catering business featuring southern-style BBQ ribs made with a patented food-processing method. Daymond discovered the mouth-watering ribs on an episode of ABC’s Shark Tank and has parlayed an appetizing new partnership with eminent fast-food brand, Carl’s Jr. Today, we feast on a gourmet Carl’s Jr. Baby Back Rib Burger with Mississippi honey BBQ sauce, crispy fried onions, and pickles.
As we devour this meatlicious delight, Daymond brings Scott and Alan up to speed on his recent endeavors including InnerVation Lab and blueprint+co; two companies designed to teach intrepreneurs and entrepreneurs techniques to leverage their intellectual value and meet like-minded individuals. Daymond teaches us how to break into an unfamiliar industry, surmount scaling issues with an inventory-dependent business model, build strategic partnerships, find mentors, and more. Savour Daymond’s words of wisdom while ravaging your own Baby Back Rib Burger, available for a limited time at Carls. Jr.

Tasty quote to chew on: “I want people to understand that they have the power to do what they want to do. Don’t make excuses because no one is going to pick you up off of the couch…”
Food for thought:
- Every time things change, somebody wins and somebody loses. It’s how you adapt that makes the difference.
- Take care of yourself. You can’t have success if you don’t take care of yourself.
- Often it’s the people around us who raise us up or knock us down. Surround yourself with like-minded people.
