Rey Ybarra is a live event owner/producer, dynamic networker/connector, speaker, author and entrepreneur.  He is currently in production for his upcoming Sharks & Stripes 2 Expo/Networking event coming to Camp Pendleton, Oceanside CA October 24, 2017.

In 2013, he produced his multimedia book, Conversations With Shark Tank Winners featuring powerful, uplifting and informative written, audio and video stories with multiple, successful entrepreneurs from the hit TV show Shark Tank!  The book was forwarded by mega entrepreneur, star of ABC TV’s Secret Millionaire and 2 time NY Times Best Selling Author of Bag The Elephant and Be The Elephant Steve Kaplan.

The University of Phoenix School of Business sponsored his book launch at the Pasadena Southern California campus that included a series of events designed to help students and aspiring entrepreneurs.  Shark Tank entrepreneurs Mark and Hanna Lim of LollaCup, Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac of Cousins Maine Lobster, Edna Ma of BareEase and Shelly Ehler of ShoNo Towels participated and were part of Rey’s live entrepreneur panel presentation!

As word spread, the popularity of his work with the Shark Tank entrepreneurs attracted two of the biggest entrepreneurial/small business organizations.  The Network After Work Group with 1.3 million members across the US and the premier event for business owners, The Small Business Expo.

Rey partnered and toured with these great organizations producing his entrepreneur panel presentations featuring some of the most successful entrepreneurs from Shark Tank and was featured center stage in major cities including Houston, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to name a few.

He is also busy working individually with entrepreneurs wanting to expand their networks and influence.
