Daymond John has been practicing the power of broke ever
since he started selling his home-sewn t-shirts on the
streets of Queens. With no funding and a $40 budget, Daymond
had to come up with out-of-the box ways to promote his
products. Luckily, desperation breeds innovation, and so he
hatched an idea for a creative campaign that eventually
launched the FUBU brand into a $6 billion dollar global
phenomenon. But it might not have happened if he hadnít
started out broke - with nothing but a heart full of hope
and a ferocious drive to succeed by any means possible.
Here, the FUBU founder and star of ABCís Shark Tank shows
that, far from being a liability, broke can actually be
your greatest competitive advantage as an
entrepreneur. Why? Because starting a business from broke
forces you to think more creatively. It forces you to use
your resources more efficiently. It forces you to connect
with your customers more authentically, and market your
ideas more imaginatively. It forces you to be true to
yourself, stay laser focused on your goals, and come up with
those innovative solutions required to make a meaningful mark.
Drawing his own experiences as an entrepreneur and branding
consultant, peeks behind-the scenes from the set of Shark
Tank, and stories of dozens of other entrepreneurs who have
hustled their way to wealth, John shows how we can all
leverage the power of broke to phenomenal success. Youíll meet:
When your back is up against the wall, your bank account is
empty, and creativity and passion are the only resources you
can afford, success is your only option. Here youíll
learn how to tap into that Power of Broke to scrape, hustle,
and dream your way to the top.
