For over the past two years, I have had the good fortune to follow The Shark Daymond John on Twitter, and learn from the valuable advice that he shares with his audience; day in and day out. Although some of the advice that he shares may not always be in his own words, the fact that he has chosen to re-tweet or share someone else’s noteworthy information, tips or advice, denotes an element of relevance or importance; for entrepreneurs and business owners everywhere.
With that being said, here are my choices for the Top 11 Daymond John Business Tips, from 2011; collected from Daymond’s Twitter posts and re-tweets.
