It takes just one opportunity to grow an empire. Bob Daniel, MBA, MBE, strategic partner and owner at PrideStaff Las Vegas knows a thing or two about that.
Always ambitious, he graduated in the first year of the MGM Supplier Diversity Mentorship Program. Shortly after, the Vietnam Veteran reached out to Kenyatta Z. Lewis, executive director of supplier diversity and sustainable procurement at MGM Resorts.
He wanted to meet with her to discuss business opportunities with the company, but at the time there were none. Daniel politely accepted this and patiently waited for his big break.
The Day Everything Changed
While he didn’t get the meeting he wanted on his first try, Daniel’s attempt wasn’t in vain. One day, Lewis got a call that the company needed a limo driver immediately. Since she knew he was looking for an opportunity, she gave him a call and he accepted the mission.
Daniel immediately got to work and found the limo driver that Lewis needed in record time. Now, more than a decade later, PrideStaff Las Vegas is one of MGM Resorts’ largest staffing suppliers. This is all possible because he took the initiative to reach out to Lewis and let her know he was interested in doing business with MGM Resorts, then fully delivered when he was given his one opportunity to shine.
After years of hard work, Daniel has become a success story highlighted by the Western Regional Minority Supplier Development Council. This is a huge honor that isn’t taken for granted.
If you’re a minority entrepreneur — or someone with entrepreneurial dreams — it’s important to remember that everyone has to start somewhere. The key to building a million-dollar company like Daniel has is to make a habit of showing up and overdelivering.
