ATLANTA, Dec. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BELAY, a virtual staffing company that offers remote bookkeeping, copywriting, web support and executive assistant services, today announced the four winners of the "Power Meeting with Daymond John — Fueled by BELAY" contest. The contest winners will meet individually with the fashion pioneer, author and branding guru for 45 minutes in early December, receiving a business assessment and discussing the opportunities and challenges their companies face.
The winners are Jill Hite, owner of Sugar Love Boutique; Raj Jana, owner of JavaPresse Coffee Company; Michelle Shriver, owner of Formula Dynamics; and Gerry Voorhes, owner of Dependable Service Plumbing. The four entrepreneurs will benefit from John's business consulting and branding experience during individual discussions that will include opportunities to seek advice on how they can grow their businesses and stand out in a competitive marketplace.
"I'm looking forward to meeting with these four entrepreneurs. Having already learned about their winners, meeting with them to hear their stories and learn more about their goals for their businesses only continues to energize my love for entrepreneurship and the passion that it instills in others. I am looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and sitting with each of them so we can work together to put together a marketing structure and brand strategy that will help each of their companies thrive and grow," John said.
John built his iconic global lifestyle brand, FUBU, from the ground up, transforming an inspired concept into a business that has generated more than $6 billion in retail sales. A best-selling author, John's most recent book, The Power of Broke, explores how a strong drive for success combined with a shortage of cash can be an entrepreneur's greatest competitive edge. Known as the "People's Shark" on ABC's Emmy Award-winning Shark Tank startup business show, John never fails to inform and inspire.
"We're so pleased to work with Daymond John on the Power Meeting contest," said Bryan Miles, BELAY cofounder and CEO, "in addition to being an incredibly accomplished entrepreneur, he's an inspiration to millions through his books and his work on Shark Tank."
"Building a business is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences life has to offer, and we're excited about the opportunity our four winning business owners now have to learn from one of the most talented entrepreneurs in the world," added Shannon Miles, BELAY cofounder.
