Founder/CEO of FUBU and CEO of The Shark Group Receives Award for Dyslexia Advocacy Work
LEESBURG, Fla. (October 4, 2021) – Entrepreneur and best-selling author Daymond John will be recognized as a Difference Maker on the second season premiere of “A World of Difference,” a television series produced by Beacon College. Season 2, which debuts October 5 both online and on WACX SuperChannel 55 in Central Florida, will feature recipients of the Difference Maker Award, bestowed upon individuals who have made a difference for the neurodiverse community.
From launching a business in his basement to starring on a hit reality television show, Daymond John has embodied the word “entrepreneur” and is now inspiring others to pursue their goals and empowering them to make positive changes in their lives.
Diagnosed with dyslexia himself, John has been open in sharing his entrepreneurial journey, through his many successes as well as failures, and what he has learned about getting the best out of business and life.
In each episode, “A World of Difference” examines neurodiversity issues related to learning disabilities experienced from birth to adult years, using compelling storytelling, conversations with experts, viewer Q&As and interviews with successful individuals with learning differences of their own. In its first season, the program received honors from the Education Digital Marketing Awards and PR News’ CSR Diversity Awards and has expanded (and continues to grow) its reach to 10 channels in eight states through regional, public, educational and governmental (PEG) stations.
