Interview with @ Kingdubb23
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have always had a love for wine and after passing the CFA I was looking for another challenge while I worked at the restaurant at nights. With my new free time I watched the Netflix SOMM documentary and began my journey and a new challenge
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
In the beginning of my journey, the most negative people about me transitioning from a 9-to-5 job to entrepreneurship full-time on my parents, over the years do my follow through and consistency and I have been able to meet some of the most influential people in the world on my way to becoming an MS. I once found myself at a table with Lebron James in Miami and shared a long conversation over the love of specific French wines
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Give yourself a break sometimes! Enjoy the journey, and most of all, do not actually drink wine while you’re training!
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I’d like to thank Lebron James who has been a mentor to me during my journey. I first met him out in Cleveland in 2016
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Well everyone enjoys a nice bottle of wine all the time. It’s hard to not like me at your dinner
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Persistence. While being a slogan of my fraternity it has taught me to never give up on anything in life.

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article?
The name KD is short for King DUBB but some people do confuse me for Kevin Durant and I have no idea why.
