Chef Shaun O'Neale has done incredible things in a short amount of time while working in the culinary industry. He was the winner of Masterchef Season 7 back in 2017 and since then he's turned into a culinary rockstar! Before that though, he was a big-time Vegas DJ and he was throwing some of the best parties in the country - that prepared him for his time in the limelight on Masterchef, but what he did afterwards is what has created his success as a food entrepreneur.

Listen in as Chef Shaun O'Neale shares valuable insight for anyone (especially those in hospitality) about building a successful brand.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What Shaun's experience was like on Masterchef with Gordon Ramsey and how he was able to transition from full-time DJ to full-time chef and media personality.
  • How Shaun has strategically created, not just a brand, but a business around himself.
  • How to best leverage business opportunities (hint, sometimes you just have to create them yourself!).
  • What to do when you have haters even though deep down you know you're doing the right thing.
