Thursday, something magical happened. Some might say a miracle.
Well, this past Thursday, Daymond was the keynote speaker for the The Minneapolis Urban League’s 87th annual Gala. And Daymond and I finally got some face time.
We Don’t Need No Stinking Badges!
Daymond and I were able to squeeze some time in before the event and much to my delight, Rabbi Moshe Weiss (creator of SoundBender, which Daymond invested in on Shark Tank) dropped in! In this case, three was not a crowd, three was a party! (Frankly, Moshe deserves his own gig in Vegas!)
Mazel Tov, Big Time!
The Rabbi is a one-man force of nature. Between Daymond, myself and the security guard, he made everyone smile and laugh.
I had to tell Rabbi Moshe my wife and I are fans of his and that she’d already purchased two SoundBenders! He was floored. (He returned the favor when he got home and shared his photo of the three of us to which his wife responded, “You met David Brier! Wow!” It’s either a great story or the Rabbi pulled one over on me….)
A One-Man Brand
It was great to chat a bit, talk about work and life with Daymond. But Daymond was there for a reason as the featured speaker.
Daymond was on his A game. His keynote delivery was fast-paced, entertaining and insightful, reminding me that if you’re from Queens, New York (which Daymond and I are both from), you’re endowed with the ability to be put in front of a room and entertain, enlighten and simply make people feel good.
On that score, Daymond “The Shark” John hit it out of the ballpark.
And I was thrilled to experience it first-hand.
