Some entrepreneurs are so ridiculously prolific, talented and ‘out-there’ that they get to take on the status of ‘celebrity’ entrepreneur. In my opinion, David Donde is one of those. I know this for a fact because I get to experience both the brand and the products that David brings to the market almost every day at Truth Coffee’s Steampunk HQ, only a short walk from our studios at successness.com in Cape Town. Anyone who has lost themselves to a ‘skinny mac’ and shared wild fantasies in the eclectic, funky, and always busy Truth Cafe, knows what I am talking about. I was not surprised to hear that it’s been voted the world’s best coffee shop by the The Daily Telegraph two years in a row!!! A man not afraid of the brutal truth, David kindly offers up some pearls of wisdom behind his success story in his brief interview. So, sit back, grab a short black of your own and enjoy. Hit it David!!
