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.
So many people have the mindset of “if I only had $X, then I could start $Y”. But few really know that many of the millionaires and billionaires we know of started with nothing: no inheritance, no angel investors, little to no savings. Instead, they had a big dream and some truly ingenious ways of putting their vision out to the world and making it a reality. That is true entrepreneurship, and I am constantly learning how to build wealth this way.
Daymond John, founder of iconic hip hop brand FUBU, and a judge on ABC’s Shark Tank has a new book out where he details his own rise to the top with $40 and a hunger to win. In The Power of Broke, are stories from himself and other entrepreneurs on the struggles and victories of building a brand. Definitely something to add to my Blackenomics collection.
