9781101903599: The Power of Broke: How Empty Pockets and a Shoestring Budget Can Become Your Greatest Competitive Advantage

FUBU founder/star of ABC's Shark Tank/highly-in-demand speaker Daymond John shows why starting a business on a shoestring can actually be an entrepreneurs' greatest competitive advantage because it forces them to think more creatively, use resources more efficiently, connect with customers more authentically, and come up with those out-of-the-box solutions required to stand out in a crowded market.

Along the way Daymond draws from his experience on starting FUBU on a $40 budget and building it into a $6 billion brand, as well as stories from dozens of entrepreneurs--some well-known and some average Joes--who have bootstrapped their way to wealth to show how to leverage the power of broke to entrepreneurial and career success

About the Author:

In 1992, Daymond John and his partners designed a modest line of clothing on a $40 budget. Today the global fashion brand  Fubu is a $6 billion dollar business, while Daymond stands on that same cutting edge as one of corporate America's leading branding consultants. He is also one of the country's most visible and best-known entrepreneurs, thanks to his regular role on the hit ABC series Shark Tank, which draws seven to eight million viewers every Friday night, and is in syndication on weeknights on CNBC.

Daymond travels 250 days a year delivering his keynote on the power of broke to companies such as Intel, CitiGoup, Sam's Club, and Rubbermaid; universities and students; entrepreneur groups and pitch conferences; "mom-preneur" groups and more. He is also the founder and CEO of Shark Branding, a brand strategy and licensing consultancy with A-list clients such as AT&T, Google, Jamba Juice, Reebok Cross Fit, and others.  He regularly appears on CNBC, Good Morning America, Fox News, Hot 97, ESPN, and has been featured in the WSJ, Fast Company, Inc., Forbes, and more.

Book Description Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 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 beyour 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: 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 grandmaís sewing machine, a stash of loose fabric, and his unique sartorial flairWhen 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. Bookseller Inventory # 115392431
