The Talk’s Akbar Gbajabiamila’s Candid Insights into Successfully Transforming Your Career That Moment with Daymond John

    • Entrepreneurship

Have you ever wanted to switch careers? And I mean really pivot? And maybe you have people telling you you can’t do it or you should just stay in your lane and keep doing what you’re doing? If you’ve ever struggled with this, or wondered what’s next for you, this is a guest you need to listen to.
 
Akbar Gbaja-Biamila joined me on That Moment with Daymond John to break down exactly how to pivot, the struggles that come with trying something new, the methods for finding success no matter what field you’re in, and more. Check out this all new episode to get the candid stories of:
Meeting Mark Burnett and participating in Expedition Impossible
Pitching himself to the NFL for the exclusive (think: only 20 players out of the entire league) opportunity to join their Broadcast Bootcamp - and what the experience was like once he secured a slot
The insecurities he faced when trying to find success in a new career path
The true value of unpaid jobs
How hearing “no” or getting laughed at fuels him to work that much harder
Facing rejections and turning them into learning opportunities (which is ultimately how he landed the American Ninja Warrior host gig!)
Balancing believing in yourself with not overestimating your importance to others
Using every opportunity to your advantage so that bigger opportunities organically arise 
Developing a healthy paranoia that ends up making you stronger in both your personal and business lives 
 
Host: Daymond John
 
Producers: Beau Dozier & Shanelle Collins; Ted Kingsbery, Chauncey Bell, & Taryn Loftus
