During this episode, Brian interviews SMACtalk co-host Daniel Newman. Many know of Daniel’s recent successes as an entrepreneur, best-selling author, and keynote speaker. Few know the story that enabled him to become the successful businessman he is today. In his early 20’s Daniel was a globally recognized DJ leveraging mutually beneficial relationships and honest hustle. These core entrepreneurial traits allowed him to smoothly transition and propel his next career as an audio visual sales executive. But, every story has lows and life lessons. Tune in to hear how Daniel still relies on high-touch relationship building and hard work to manage his speaking career and keep his five businesses profitable and how the bumps in the road made him a better entrepreneur and overall better human.
“Building relationships internally with your team is just as valuable as the external ones you build that bring profit” - @DanielNewmanUV
Who is Daniel Newman:
I love technology, but I am also extremely passionate about digital transformation and strategy because I believe technology can only reach its potential when it is intertwined with humanity.
