    A young entrepreneur, an industry pioneer, a highly regarded marketing expert, and a man who has surpassed new heights of commercial and financial success are just a few ways people have described Daymond John Over the last 20 years, Daymond has evolved from one of the most successful fashion icons of his generation to one of the most sought after branding experts, business, and motivational speakers in the country.Daymond s creative vision and strong knowledge of the marketplace helped him create one of the most iconic fashion brands in recent years FUBU, standing for For Us By Us , represented a lifestyle that was neglected by other clothing companies Realizing this need in the marketplace, Daymond created the untapped urban apparel space and laid the groundwork for other companies to compete in this newly established market.Daymond grew up in the community of Hollis, Queens, quickly becoming known as the birthplace of the new genre of music called Hip Hop, with acts like RUN DMC and Salt N Peppa rapidly making names for themselves Being surrounded in this influential neighborhood helped spur the inspiration for his clothing line that would ultimately change the fashion world.His first foray into the apparel market came when he wanted a tie top hat he had seen in a popular music video but could not find one for a good price With the sewing skills he had learned from his mother, Daymond started making the hats for himself and his friends Realizing he was on to something, Daymond made a sizeable order of the tie top hats, sold them on the streets of Queens one day, and made 800 in just a few hours There was a buzz about Daymond s products that simply could not be ignored.Based on that early success, Daymond recruited some of his neighborhood friends and FUBU was born They created a distinctive logo and began sewing the FUBU logo on all sorts of apparel, including hockey jerseys, sweatshirts and t shirts The brand hit a tipping point when Daymond convinced Hollis native and Hip Hop superstar, LL Cool J, to wear FUBU for a promotional campaign This was the catalyst behind the entire Hip Hop community supporting the new brand and instantly giving it credibility In need of start up capital to keep up with demand, Daymond and his mother mortgaged the home they collectively owned for 100,000 Soon, the home was turned into a makeshift factory and office space.FUBU gained even nationwide exposure when Daymond and his partners traveled to the industry trade show Magic in Las Vegas Despite not being able to afford a booth at the event, the FUBU team showed buyers the distinctively cut, vibrantly colored sportswear in their hotel room The company came back to Queens with over 300,000 worth of orders FUBU soon had a contract with the New York City based department store chain Macy s, and it began expanding its line to include jeans and outerwear A distribution deal with Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung allowed their designs to be manufactured and delivered on a massive scale With the brand transcending into the mainstream markets, FUBU recorded annual sales of 350 million, placing it in the same stratosphere as designer sportswear labels such as Donna Karan New York and Tommy Hilfiger.In 2009, John joined the cast of the ABC entrepreneurial business show, Shark Tank, produced by acclaimed TV producer Mark Burnett As one of the Sharks , Daymond and four other prominent executives listen to business pitches from everyday people hoping to launch their company or product to new heights Investing his own money in every project, Daymond becomes partners with the entrepreneurs helping turn their dreams into a reality Millions of viewers tune into the show as Daymond demonstrates his marketing prowess and entrepreneurial insights.Due to the increasing amount of requests from major companies, Shark Branding was formed to provide companies with the marketing insights that have made D

  1. Daymond John is a salesman, and right now he wants to sell you his book I recommend borrowing it from the library The text is easy to read, like a conversation between brothers, and just this side of used car salesman By page 57, I was skimming tales of John s life until I found the main points listed in the back This could have been boiled down to an inspirational glossy brochure.


  2. Soah I think I m just barely on the outer cusp of the fringe element of this book s target audience I am a small business owner and a new one at that, but I am not a rah rah rise n grind son top of my lungs power speak type and the jargon of that whole approach usually turns me off Couple that with his admiration for Donald Trump geezus even if he did just mean for business and him citing George Bush as a great leader No In what world rhetorical And the whole thing is sort of talked out rather t [...]


  3. Shark Tank s Daymond John, started his home sewn t shirt business with no funding and only a 40 budget and eventually launched the FUBU brand into a 6 billion dollar global phenomenon.The book was a quick read, but I was a little disappointed in the book I am not saying the book is bad This book didn t meet my expectations not in a bad way though I was expecting to learn about Daymond and his tricks in succeeding, but it ended up being about other business s story of success, which was interest [...]


  4. I recently read The Power Of Broke which is ironic because you almost go broke buying the book The book was subpar in my opinion because the message could have been conveyed in a better way The book told his story but then went on to tell others less interesting story s that somehow he used to try to pull it together at the bottom of the page The book highlighted many people who have made appearances on the famous Shark Tank because Daymond John is an investor on the show The big downfall for me [...]


  5. Great practical information about using what you have It s applicable to a personal brand or a company Unfortunately, over half way through, the book sounded like a commercial I still want to check out Daymond s other books.


  6. What I got out from this Probably heard elsewhere Be realistic, if software sells today, don t try to sell cookies Or specific, if software, then which, how and where mobile apps Prototype and test.In overall, book is like stream of consciousness than a book, didn t noticed any organization, at least in audio format, so left with my previous simple knowledge people do things when they feel cold, pain, etc Problem is you know nothing what exactly to do, so all mentioned examples, as always in t [...]


  7. No structure The collection of success stories feels like a broken record Here s a success story Here s how he succeeded because he was broke And here s how it reminds me of myself, the author I finished it because I always do, but my eyes were hurting from rolling so much.


  8. Filled with massive inspiring stories of successful business entrepreneurs Yet another side of successful Daymond, the SHARK.



  9. I knew about The Power of Broke after reading Tools of Titans by Tim Ferris It is a smooth read that motivates the reader to embrace uncertainty and lack of resources to make the best out of what they have Broke is a mentality that does not have to do with only lack of money, it could be the lack of support, resources, knowledge, and experience among other things What was interesting about this read was the different age range of the people who were mentioned and the vast difference in their exp [...]


  10. Whether you are starting a new business or trying to determine how to take it to a new level of success, you will gain a number of insights through THE POWER OF BROKE The storytelling in this book is excellent and the how to information is practical for every reader The focus of this book on the hunger for success is excellent no matter what your age Like Daymond John writes toward the end of the book, Know this no mater how old you are, the power of broke never leaves you It s not something you [...]


  11. The Power of Broke provided entertainment value than it did practical advice based on statistical evidence Hearing the stories of successful entrepreneurs was interesting to me, however, the main conclusion from this book or so it seemed is that extreme risk can grant extreme reward Daymond John doesn t spend any time looking at those who exercised extreme risk to be met with failure, which is essential in order to assess how much one should give advice to a young entrepreneur to take invest ev [...]


  12. This had the potential to be a really great book, if only Daymond John would get out of his own way Why can t he simply share other peoples successes, without constantly bringing up Oh, this one time on shark tank or That reminds me about our experience with FUBU Dude it s not all about you, all the time I found myself getting very annoyed with his constant interjecting of his own two cents when it was completely unnecessary The bootstrap entrepreneur stories were very inspiring in spite of his [...]


  13. No conoc a este autor y tampoco este libro, el que me fue recomendado por la famosa bloguera de negocios por internet, Andrea Rojas The Power of Broke trata de historias de empresarios que lograron poner en marcha negocios exitosos sin tener el dinero suficiente en sus inicios Aunque unos no eran pobres de familia, todos aquellos mencionados en el presente libro tienen el mismo factor com n una hambre de xito sin igual que le dio toda la fuerza necesaria para superar las dificultades que se encu [...]

  17. The Power of Broke couldn t have come at a better or crazier time in my life In the midst of my own entrepreneur journey and launching a business, I was neck deep in stress and self doubt I bought The Power of Broke with hopes that Daymond s story would help inspire me in my own extrepeneur adventure I was skeptical at first, as to whether I was just buying into this book because of the name and face that went with it, and whether it s words would be of any true value I have to say, this was the [...]


  18. This book is really all about a mindset Often times we never reach our full potential when it comes to our dreams of a better future Some of us see it as a money issue Often times this is a negative money viewpoint that could never happen, we just don t have that kind of money Well the Power of Broke is a book designed to help us think differently about our future, and our money.I was introduced to Daymond John on the ABC show Shark Tank This is the man responsible for several fashion brands inc [...]


  19. What I Liked About The BookDaymond John or his ghostwriter uses very conversational language so the book reads like the transcript of an interview.The success stories mentioned in the book were motivational and relevant.I like that the books addresses different kinds of broke ness including disabilities and other prejudice against minorities all things that could hinder a person s ability to succeed It even shows how corporations can harness the power not just individuals.What I Didn t Like Abou [...]


  20. This book has great principles that alter negative thinking when it comes to the feeling of not having money It proves that being broke can be used as tool to gain success If you ve watched a lot of SharkTank, this book may start out slow for you because he speaks to some of the venture capitalists who he made deals with The book is interesting when you hear about the stories you don t know already Overall, I would rank this book in my Top 10 self help books of all time The layout and transitio [...]


  21. When an animal is against the wall, it defends itself as never before, and a small mouse is able to fight against a cat and beat it.Being against the wall can always be an incentive to get ahead.That s why I was interested in Daymond John s book The Power of Broke How Empty Pockets, a Tight Budget, and a Hunger for Success to Become Your Greatest Competitive Advantage.It has very interesting concepts like Learn to take advantage of everything you have although sometimes you do not know that you [...]


  22. I review this book a 4 out of 5 stars because for the most part this book was very informative I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to venture into creating their own business and becoming an entrepreneur This book talks about how being broke can help you lead to success, and how no matter how little money you have you can become a successful entrepreneur This book discusses how Daymond John went from driving people around for money to becoming the CEO to a 650 million dollar company, [...]


  23. This book teaches you a valuable lesson that can be applied to your everyday life regardless of whether you are interested in entrepreneurship The the power of broke is an inspiring idea and Daymond backs this up with anecdotal proof that you don t need large amount of money or resources to create a successful business, and in fact it can be a hindrance After reading this book, I feel empowered and confident that I can take on the challenges of business and entrepreneurship Although I am not ex [...]


  24. I can see why sony people are giving this book different ratings and that s fine I gave this book a 5 because it reminded me of the purpose of the book Always hustle, grind, be smart and create your way through things instead of spending so much ifb your a business owner with money sometimes you forget to hustle like you have no money and if you have no money you forget to create and generate money with what you have and that s the reminder he s giving you You won t relate to this book if you ha [...]


  25. My mentor strongly recommended this book It s an excellent mind opener in it shares rich and actual examples of how entrepreneurs with no resources money found their way through grit, limitless energy, thinking out of the box to challenge the status quo and make it big Anyone who have big dreams but no resources will tremendously benefit from the ideas shared in this book.To make it a 5 star, I feel the editors could have done a better job by conveying the same message in 150 pages instead of 25 [...]


  26. I recently retired, so thought maybe I should read about being broke to see if it had any tips for me to ward off being too broke Ha The book was about entrepreneurs and how to go about getting what you want There were some great quotes about getting where you want to go when you start at the bottom I ve already lived my entrepreneur life I owned a successful business and have come out the other side This was a good book, but not what I need in my life So for me, so so.


  27. Definitely pick this book up Daymond is a great storyteller and has some excellent examples of the power of broke I think the most important and interesting is his own story I won t give it away, but his childhood is very inspiring Also one of the biggest pieces of advice I learned is to never take venture money If Daymond took venture money early on for FUBU the 10,000 from the investor would have been worth 600 million dollars today.


  28. I listen to a lot of audio books during my drive time The one thing I disliked about the audio version of the book was the reader Overall, I liked Daymond John s ideas that he shared in how he grew his business The ideas were very simple, easy to execute, very much common sense and easily overlooked I thought there was some great life and business take aways from the book The Power of broke is a mindset to have in the building of businesses and the pursuit of success.


  29. I think this book is best for people who need reminding of how to hustle and what it s like to be pushed against a wall, but if you re someone who s already in that mindset there are better books out there However, as a fan of Shark Tank it was interesting to read some of the behind the scene information and stories about the earlier days of FUBU which you don t always get when you just watch a tv show.
