The Power of Broke Review
Hello All I hope you are having a blessed day, today I will be doing another book review from http://bloggingforbooks.com/. I received a book called: The Power of Broke by Daymond John with Daniel Paisner, For free for my honest opinion.
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 hadn’t 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 ABC’s 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. You’ll meet:
· Steve Aoki, the electronic dance music (EDM) deejay who managed to parlay a series of $100 gigs into becoming a global superstar who has redefined the music industry.
· Gigi Butler, a cleaning lady from Nashville who built cupcake empire on the back of a family recipe, her maxed out credit cards, and a heaping dose of faith.
·11-year old Shark Tank guest Mo Bridges who stitched together a winning clothing line with just his grandma’s sewing machine, a stash of loose fabric, and his unique sartorial flair.
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 you’ll learn how to tap into that Power of Broke to scrape, hustle, and dream your way to the top.
My husband and I have had so many ideas that we wanted to create and put it into the market, but we didn't have the funds to get the the ideas out there. I love how the Daymond John with Daniel Paisner wrote this book, I could not put the book down. I love how the authors share there experience and other successful entrepreneur experiences as well.
I like how he shares that being broke at the beginning will actually make you go harder and have more success, because you will know how to use your resources more effectively and you are more creative with your ideas and much more. This book really made me feel more positive with my ideas, even if i don't have a lot of money to get started there are ways to still become successful being broke. Awesome book and a must read for broke entrepreneurs.
