Damon Brown Is Helping Non-Traditional Creatives Build From What They Already Have

When it comes to the ceiling, there’s no limit to what Damon Brown aims for as an entrepreneur. Plus, he’s helping others do the same. “The more secure you are in what you’re nourishing the world with, the less you’re worried about the timeline,” said Brown on the latest episode of Black Tech Green Money with host Will Lucas. As a tech entrepreneur, author, and speaker, Brown has seemingly mastered the art of the side hustle and he is now using his platform to help other solopreneurs and non-traditional creatives bloom. “I have a level of sympathy and empathy, as well as perspective for the nontraditional entrepreneur,” continued Brown. “This means someone who’s trying to make an impact but may be overlooked.” Through his latest book, “Build From Now:  How to Know Your Power, See Your Abundance & Nourish the World,” Brown is working to help others bring their worth and build from there. “[In the book], I’m talking about the four resources that we all have: Focus, Agility, Time and...

This Founder Is Sparking Up The Conversation About Avoiding Burnout

Constantly answering phone calls, attending meetings, and searching for funding can take a toll on any entrepreneur’s mental health. While founders are trying to balance it all, many forget to take a little time for themselves. That’s why Damon Brown — Co-Founder of Cuddlr — believes the key to having a healthy company is having a healthy mind. Cuddlr was a Tinder-esque app that launched in 2014, specifically for people who wanted to cuddle, not those looking to hook up. It quickly gained attention with more than 200,000 downloads in the App Store. “As an entrepreneur, you have to be ready for your company to go from zero to 100,” Brown said. “Because once it does, there’s no going back, and there’s no more free time.” The app was set to be a hotspot for platonic friendships and affection.
