How Bethenny Frankel Monetized Herself - And You Can Too

Business expert and reality star Bethenny Frankel joined me on That Moment with Daymond John to give her candid and raw reflection on some of the most significant moments of her career, from her decision to leave the Housewives franchise to her no-job-too-small approach to relief efforts in times of crisis.

Key Takeaways:

You’ll be so impressed with how she carved out monetization opportunities for herself that had previously been impossible for other Housewives and the way that she rationalized leaving the show (trust me, it’s a lesson we can all learn from regardless of what our lines of work are). We also got into the rocky story of how we first met and how that almost lost her a slot on Shark Tank as a guest Shark.

One of the most impressive elements of Bethenny is her commitment to providing relief in times of major crisis across the globe, and she shared some eye-opening insights into how relief efforts actually come together and what goes on behind the scenes. 

Tune in to an all new episode of That Moment with Daymond John to learn how icon Bethenny Frankel balances being authentic & honest with being respected, how to take control of your own opportunities, and how you can “build the plane while flying it.”

Who is Bethenny Frankel?

Bethenny Frankel is an incredible businesswoman and personality who revolutionized how reality stars can monetize their appearances and carve out spaces for themselves in business. She’s been a friend for years and I was so excited to sit with her for this episode!

Her TV career began with her being the runner up on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, followed by The Real Housewives of New York City and spinoffs Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After. She also has an HBO show, The Big Shot with Bethenny, in which the next generation of business moguls compete for a slot on her executive team.

As an entrepreneur, she founded the Skinnygirl brand, a global lifestyle empire that spans across multiple categories including food, beverage, and apparel. Bethenny sold the liquor rights for Skinnygirl Cocktails to Beam Global in a strategic move that allowed for her to continue to expand the brand in other industries while capitalizing on the brand’s following in the alcohol space. Most recently, she launched a new wine brand called Forever Young

Bethenny is also a New York Times bestselling author and launched her first business themed book, Business Is Personal: The Truth about What It Takes to Be Successful While Staying True to Yourself in 2022. You’ve also probably seen Bethenny on social media as an “accidental” beauty influencer who has amassed 6.5 million loyal followers who tune in for her beauty and food reviews, pop culture hot takes, and no filter attitude. 

She is so sharp and witty and listeners are in for a really interesting discussion!
