Review quote

Winner of the NAACP Image Award "Daymond knows how to make things happen. He knows the difference between a want-repreneur and an entrepreneur, and he lays it out for us in these pages. What a kick it is to read over his shoulder as he shares his hard-won wisdom. This guy built an empire from the streets of Hollis, Queens, and here he compares notes with other visionaries who've also found ways to beat the odds and make it to the top. His new book is so inspiring, so insightful, so invigorating... I'm glad that he took the time to share this mindset with the world"
--Mark Cuban, Entrepreneur and Owner of Dallas Mavericks

"Daymond John's journey proves that desperation breeds innovation, and The Power of Broke breaks it down for us with straight talk from a guy who knows what it takes to make something out of nothing."
--Steve Case, chairman and CEO of Revolution LLCand cofounder of America Online

"Money can't buy you strength or spirit. It can't get you peace or power. In his empowering new book, Daymond John sets out a blueprint for folks looking to put their God-given assets to work to build a business or a brand. Nobody knows better than Daymond that it doesn't matter how you start out in life - the will to win resides in us all."
--Russell Simmons, Business Mogul and Philanthropist

"I firmly believe that you should only read business books from people who have actually built businesses. Daymond has done just that, and here he breaks down the thesis and the religion behind exactly how he did it. You have to understand that 'broke' isn't what happens in your wallet; 'broke' is a mind-set. It's about tapping into that state of desperation that leads you to tremendous creativity. I was in the game of broke before I even knew what the game was, and, here, Daymond John deconstructs this crucial concept in detail."
--Gary Vaynerchuk, VaynerMedia CEO and three-timeNew York Times bestselling author
