Listen in to his incredible story as he pivots from one business to another capturing opportunities and leveraging them. He started a business on creating and selling Poker Bling during the Texas Hold 'em Poker Tournament craze that helped him quit his job to becoming an full blown entrepreneur. Eventually he started an apparel business learning the ins and outs of branding, marketing and retail to ultimately land on Shark Tank.Transcript: David Stankunas  00:00I didn't get on Shark Tank until several, seven or eight years later, after I launched BeardHead. Hard work and motivation is the biggest thing. If you are motivated to work hard, you're going to probably succeed over talent or intelligence or resources. Hard work is the most important thing. J Flow  00:23Welcome, everyone, to the Enlighten Millionaire podcast. Today, we have a special guest, David, all the way from Los Angeles. And so David, if you could share, what is something that most people know about you? And what is something that a lot of people don't know about you? David Stankunas  00:41Well, I guess most people will know that I have my own business. I've been an entrepreneur for more than a decade now. Something that they might not have known as I started out with a corporate job. Just as a communications consultant for years out of college, spent a fair amount of time there. It took a little while before actually jumping out and off on my own and starting businesses. J Flow  01:04Amazing. I would love to dive into that transition a little bit more. But let's go way back. What was your childhood like? Where did you grow up? Where do you go to school? David Stankunas  01:14So childhood, I grew up in the Bay Area, San Jose, Saratoga, in California, upper middle class, I guess. Both my parents are engineers, I have one sister, it was a very privileged life, I would say. I was afforded love, opportunities. I didn't have to really worry about trouble at home, or you know, are we going to be able to pay rent? View full transcript here: https://www.enlightenmillionaire.com/emp-david-stankunas-transcript

You can make yourself do anything but it's not going to be long term. And it has to have some learning and growing, which I think pretty much anything does. Whether you're looking at racing little stupid Toy Drones, because there's always up leveling, there's always the competition. There's always you can tweak this or do this and you're always looking for one little thing, you know, or whether it's business or up leveling your relationship or up leveling your health or something.

And what was that dream for you growing up? Did you have like a vision or goal when you were a child?Damon Darnall  01:10Yeah, I did. I mean, I think all kids, you know, we have this incredible ability to dream and we don't have limits on it. I think as we get older, we then learn to give up or crush those dreams down and stifle them and not give them power. But I think that the driving force, I think what sets entrepreneurs apart is they hang on to that desire in that dream a little more than other people. They don't give it up as as easily.View full transcript here: https://www.enlightenmillionaire.com/emp-damon-darnell-transcript

And I kind of started my first career when I was a little kid, just doing radio. And I just love to be part of that and create and be creative. And that led into acting and then that led into wanting to create stories that I was passionate about. And that led to writing. And then once I...J Flow  02:21Woah, woah, woah.
