What started out as a one-time morning dance party with 180 friends has since grown into worldwide series of wild 6 a.m. events. "It was the most warm, magical, and healthy party," Brimer says of that first event. "And people loved it." Today Daybreaker is all over the U.S., plus in far-flung cities like Paris and Shanghai. But the sentiment is the same: "We want to be a global force for good will, inclusion, health and wellness, and presence," Brimer says. That last part is important. Don't expect mimosas. Despite its rave-like setting, the parties include green smoothies and lots of coffee. Most recently, Daybreaker helped kick off the 2016 football season by holding an event in the Broncos's stadium. What's next? A festival, apparel, and continuing to "break down barriers between people around the world," Brimer says.
What do you eat for breakfast? "Bulletproof coffee—coffee with ghee and sometimes turmeric and other health supplements."
Are you naturally a morning person? "I’m a creative, and that time after dinner when the world has started to shut down, when you don’t have emails bombarding you, that’s when I like to work."
