About Daymond John

“The Power of Broke is a mindset that I’ve used throughout my business career and I truly believe this is what separates the entrepreneurs from the “wantrepreneurs.”

~ Daymond John

From his sensationally popular role on TV to his newly appointed status as a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship, Daymond John’s name has become synonymous with success. Ever since he started the global apparel brand FUBU, For Us, By Us, with no funding and a $40 budget, John has been practicing the power of broke. He devised a creative campaign that eventually launched the FUBU brand into a $6 billion global phenomenon. Luckily, desperation breeds innovation because none of this might have happened if he hadn’t started out broke – with nothing but a heart full of hope and a ferocious drive to succeed by any means possible.


About The Power of Broke

“This guy built an empire from the streets of Hollis Queens, and here he compares notes with other visionaries who’ve found ways to beat the odds and make it to the top.”

~ Mark Cuban

Daymond John gives the reader an insightful look at business superstars who have launched their massively successful careers and brands from a place of desperation – all by harnessing the power of broke to think creatively, alternatively, and aggressively. Some of the people he interviewed include: acclaimed TV Producer Mark Burnett, Internet Retailer Loren Ridinger, and Angel Investor Tim Ferriss. Taken together, these stories, interwoven with his own, offer readers a template for how to make things happen in their lives and careers when the odds are long and stakes are high.

The Power of Broke is published by Crown Business Books, a subsidiary of Random House, which publishes some of today’s most forward-thinking writers, in such categories as entrepreneurship, innovation, management, leadership, and finance.
