Season 3 || Episode 479

Today’s guest is Darnell Jones, Co-Founder & CEO of POWERHANDZ!

Darnell is an entrepreneur, investor, athlete and sales professional. The resilience he needed to overcome obstacles early in his basketball career prepared him for his business ventures ahead. He began his post-playing career in the medical device industry and it didn’t take him long to climb the ladder to leadership positions.

Darnell’s first solo business venture, TUKZ Undergarments, was a patented underwear line that was eventually acquired. He began his next business venture shortly after, POWERHANDZ, which is an athletic sporting goods provider of performance enhancing training products, where he currently serves as the CEO.
