Daymond John Quotes
- "My life is filled with friends. And I know the difference between friends and associates. They say a friend is somebody you can call up at 3 in the morning and say, Come help me bury a body. I have a couple of friends like that. And then I have associates. But yeah, I’m very very lucky."
- "My oldest kids, I used to love going to the movies with them. I still love Shrek, Ice Age. I cant wait to watch Finding Dory."
- "I have a decent bike. I have two--I have one electric one that I really love. It just has fat tires and on those hills that you’d normally walk up, you just put the power on to help you. I don’t like it in a sense, because I don’t want to cheat."
- "Most people who shoot a show walk away when the cameras are down. Once we finish, the real work starts. I probably have to spend four months out of my life handling the deal and processing them every year."
- "When I wake up in the morning, there’s 200 emails and texts."
