123: Access & Networking - How to never waste an opportunity.

My guest in this episode of Diferente is Wendell Haskins.

Wendell is a dynamic entrepreneur whose expertise has made him a sought-after event producer, panelist and speaker. He has appeared at the South Africa Golf Summit, The World Diversity Leadership Summit at the United Nations. All while leveraging his vast network of relationships with business professionals and celebrities.

Before founding his own lifestyle brand, Wendell served as Director of Artist and Repertoire/Artist Development for Island Records' Def Jam Recordings label, where he worked with iconic international acts, such as LL Cool J and many others. He later went on to establish the long-standing golf tournament, The Original Tee Golf Classic, which has raised thousands of dollars for philanthropic efforts supporting minority communities over the past 17 years.

Talk about a guy with a very Diferente approach to his career!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this first series on Diferente. If you’ve learned something new, or the discussions we’ve had during these past six episodes have helped you in any way, please let me know in the reviews, or on our social media pages, the links are in the show notes.

BY THE WAY… one of our listeners asked me the other day to explain what the show notes are. :-) To be fair, that is a great question for anyone who is new to the podcast world. The show notes are the same thing as the episode description. So you just need to click on the episode description to read the show notes.

Also, if you’re wondering how you can share Diferente with other people, you can send them a link to the show or a particular episode directly from the application you’re listening on! They all have this option.
