Daymond’s Involvement & Mentorship
Overall, he has much more involvement than we ever expected when first making the deal. We have full access to his entire team and we can call him whenever we want…Daymond has been instrumental in the execution of our overall game plan. He is extremely open to communication and strategizes with us on a frequent basis. He has brought key relationships to the table and continues to provide certain insight that only a veteran would possess.
