Relationships Part 2

The last question is focused around the idea of relationships, this last cornerstone of the framework of power shift. We talked earlier on about how powerful relationships are you invested because you like people you believe in them based on their storytelling, based on how they present themselves, based, of course, in part on the product. But it's just a piece of the pie. So there's a part of the book, um, that I really identified with that. I think I want you to share a little bit more in depth with the audience who's tuned in today, and that is banking relationship capital clocked me about that relationship. Capital is extremely important. Relationship capital is somebody that you've already dealt with or you are no or relation. Capital could be used in new forms as well, because you could be a person who was a conduit for a lot of different people coming to you and say, I just don't somebody let me pass it on it. You always want the best of the person. But after a deal is done, gen...

erally you hope to do Barris many deals with that person. But if not, what? You should focus on is making sure that that relationship is nurtured. So they go tell 10 and 20 and 30 people out there about you. Because isn't that why when some people raise capital they have aboard, it's a relationship. It is. Listen, whether you know me or not, you may think that I have ability do this. This person is over here and finances first in the distribution of this first of marketing while cases and they have great names and they're ready to loan me their names, their coal signing on me to say that I am somebody off value. So when your money or anything, your partnership is at risk, you know that I came with a border, trusted people. But I'm going to allow me to give you better information and not making many mistakes. And they're going to guide me because I don't want to be a burden to you. You should focus on making your relationship capital deeper, not wider. You don't want to always try to be everything there, but it's just like right now you won't find out how you can collaborate with people you know, if you are somebody who has a retail store. I love telling everybody about a guy that I was just consulting with a massive Jim and he said, I have all my members. They love me. They come in for me just like everybody here, every single person here, the people they really deal with a lot. Those people make you feel special. And he says, My members, though going through tough times and I can't open the gym what I do So what did he do? He took all his machines and sent it over to his members houses. He didn't took his IPhone. And he's still Ming himself working out because the world is used to now, you know, working out virtually because, of course, the big bike company. What was it by coming today? Saletan. Well, it's time have gotten people used to that. But other relationships that he call carved up. He knows retail stores are having a hard time. So he found three or four retail stores in the neighborhood works were up in his gym. Is that and he said, with the subsoil workout clothes, he said, Guys, can you offer my membership 30% off your cools and you'll give me 5% off course why they get to move inventory. The right now is sitting and getting stagnant. The members get 30% off and he makes 5%. He replicated that. What fresh juice company and a food delivery company. Those are all relations relationships with his his members relation with his staff to do the pellet on type of thing relationship with the new sorts in the community, dug in there and needed collaborative things, and now he's making more money than he ever did before. So it's about digging into your relations, and I'm telling you right now everybody is sitting at home waiting to see what they can do, and you may have some collaborative efforts, or you may have some things that you could dig into for them either. I commend somebody you work with, or would you themselves, you know, mentor you in a better way. It's all about relationships and relationship. Capital is extremely important

Class Description


Join us as Shark Tank's Daymond John shares his newest book POWERSHIFT with the world. During this exclusive event, Daymond will break down many of the key concepts of the book and give behind the scenes commentary. Our very own Chase Jarvis will join him for discussion on important topics and the two will host an interactive Q&A session with people across the globe.

In these unprecedented times, we’ve worked with Daymond to create a worldwide virtual book tour stop at CreativeLive. Wherever you may be, you’re invited to attend alongside our global community for free.


  • Anyone feeling uncertain about their livelihood and position in this rapidly changing economy.
  • Professionals who want to break the mold of how to achieve success within their respective fields.
  • Creatives who need a reminder that we can always recapture a sense of power and command through building influence, honing negotiation skills, and nurturing relationships.


  • Learn the steps of Daymond’s tried and true process to transform any situation, close any deal, and achieve any outcome.
  • Make an impression and influence your field.
  • Master negotiation and understand what makes a great deal.
  • Sustain the relationships that make your career thrive.


Through never-before-told stories from his life and career, Daymond shares the lessons that got him to where he is today: from how he remade his public image as he transitioned from clothing mogul to television personality, to how he mastered the negotiation strategies that determine whether deals are won or lost “in the tank,” to his secrets for building long-lasting—and profitable—relationships with founders and brands.

Throughout the book, some of the world’s most successful personalities reveal how they shifted their power in meaningful ways:

Kris Jenner on determining your value: “You don’t have to go ask somebody else for permission. You have the power to be able to stick to your guns and demand your worth.”

Mark Cuban on finding and understanding your why: “Time is the one asset we don’t own, we can’t buy, and we can never get back.”

Pitbull on tapping into your inner power: “A lot of people feel that to be powerful is to exude strength. I think it’s the total opposite. To be powerful is to be powerless. It’s when you give everybody what you got.”


An entrepreneur in every sense of the word, Daymond John has come a long way from taking out a $100,000 mortgage on his mother’s house and moving his operation into the basement. John is CEO and Founder of FUBU, a much-celebrated global lifestyle brand, and a pioneer in the fashion industry with over $6 billion in product sales. He’s celebrating his 11th season on ABC’s hit business show Shark Tank by acclaimed producer Mark Burnett. It has now gone on to win four Emmys and millions of weekly viewers tune into the show as John demonstrates his marketing prowess and entrepreneurial insights.
