The event brings together more than 5,000 LegalShield Associates across the U.S. and Canada for three days of professional development, training and networking. In the keynote speech, Daymond shared his keys to success with convention attendees, including establishing the right mindset and following a few fundamental principles – his five “S.H.A.R.K. points.”
“Sales is everything. When you have a good product like LegalShield and you are changing lives and protecting people, the easiest thing in the world is to sell the truth,” said John to thundering applause. “Successful entrepreneurs act, learn, repeat and they keep grinding and I have come to know that CEO Jeff Bell and his LegalShield leadership team demonstrate those tenants!”
In addition to his role on Shark Tank, John is widely recognized for his accomplishments as an entrepreneur and branding expert following the success of his groundbreaking lifestyle brand, FUBU® which went on to eclipse more than $6 billion in global retail sales. He was named a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship under the Obama Administration and is a two-time New York Times Best Selling Author, most recently for his book Rise and Grind. John remains committed to helping aspiring entrepreneurs, which landed him the affectionate nickname of “The People’s Shark.” In recognition of his impact in the entrepreneurial space, John has been bestowed the NAACP Entrepreneurs of the Year Award, the Congressional Achievement Award for Entrepreneurship and more.
“LegalShield is thrilled to have Daymond John speak to our associates about his extensive business experience and love of entrepreneurship,” said Jeff Bell, CEO of LegalShield. “His fundamentals for success in business and life are invaluable and empower our convention attendees to make a positive change in every aspect of their lives. We look forward to using his advice to make the world a better place.”
