580: Brutal Honesty with Yourself to Achieve High Level Success | Damon D'Amore

About This Episode:Mr. D’Amore specializes working with two distinct types of leaders: C-Suite executives and founding teams. His work with corporate C-Suite executives focuses on legacy and helping leaders accomplish current tactical goals that ultimately facilitate their personal or organizational legacy at retirement. Damon also works with founding teams of companies positioned for hyper-growth focusing on implementing personal performance systems and positioning these companies to scale into industry or category-leading organizations.

He works directly with these leaders or via their institutional and venture investors. He has more than fifteen years’ experience working one-on-one with hundreds of top CEOs, founders and executives at Fortune 100 to 1000 firms such as Walmart, PepsiCo, DirecTV, NASCAR, Subway and Yahoo!.

Mr. D’Amore is a serial entrepreneur, founder, board member, investor and adviser to multiple international companies. He founded multiple startups after long careers deep in the media and entertainment sectors producing programs such as Undercover Boss and The Apprentice. Mr. D’Amore began his career in global finance building international businesses for the market leading firm Cantor Fitzgerald. He serves as mentor and lecturer to Top 25 MBA programs such as USC, NYU and Columbia, and acted as spokesperson and host for an American Express and Discovery Channel show promoting entrepreneurship.

Mr. D’Amore speaks internationally on the topics of legacy, personal development, and applying lessons of entrepreneurship and innovation to corporate environments. Damon believes all of life’s questions can be answered in hip-hop, comic books, 70s soft rock, 80’s pop, Michael Mann films, Tim O’Brien novels, and the sacred bond between a human and their dog.

He grew up all over Jersey and has lived in the battlefield of Los Angeles for the past 18 years, currently with my chocolate lab, Dubya.
