We had the good fortune of connecting with Daniel Shemtob and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Daniel, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor for our companies success is staying true to our values and empowering the people that help us obtain success. When I take a look around at the organization I built over the past 10 years I am honored by the people who decided to help get the company to where it is. It’s those selfless acts in connection with high ethics and consistency that makes a brand persevere over time, building a legacy. No single person can grow a large organization and as soon as you invest in your people, build the support and boundaries, you are able to succeed!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I have multiple businesses under my belt that now create revenues of 8mm+ and employ hundreds of people. Being able to build these companies I found a constant and its amazing people and a really strong system to support them to get the best work done.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Friend lands Thursday and its explore east la, get some tacos from Leo’s taco truck and azteca tortillria. Then head to the dog park by the Hollywood Sign for views and to sleep off all the food we ate. Thursday night its head to my restaurant Hatch since its some of the best food in the city. Friday its head to Malibu either on the motorcycle or vintage car and check out the back roads, go to the old cafe or rock store, and then head down to PCH for Soho Malibu and hang until sunset. Friday night just order some Sugarfish and get some rest. Saturday explore venice, maybe end up at Charcoal or Abbot for a bomb dinner. Sunday chill out by the pool at BHH or at a home, and then send off.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
So many people helped me get to the success I have now. It would be hard to mention them all, but a few people stand out. My brother who bought me “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” at the age of 14, my mentor Emilio who completely turned my life in a new direction, Entrepreneur Organization which has shaped me into a better entrepreneur and I am now a board member for the second year in a row and so many more.
