How To Succeed In Business With No Money In Your PocketDaymond John
(Forbes) – What if I told you that you already possess the single best advantage to be successful and that you don’t need that big investment you were thinking about to accomplish your goals?
That’s what I will show you in my new book, The Power of Broke, which hits book shelves January 19th.
What exactly is this thing I’m calling the power of broke? Simply put, it’s when you’re up against the odds and have no choice left but to succeed. It’s a mindset that everyone possesses and just needs to be tapped into. It’s the ability to harness unparalleled creativity and passion stemming from having nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Trust me on this. If you’re able to unlock this amazing worldview, you will be able to thrive in business.
My hope is that The Power of Broke inspires entrepreneurs from all walks of life to think creatively, alternatively and aggressively. Personally, I’ve been practicing the power of broke even before I started selling my home-sewn hats on the streets of Queens with no funding and a $40 budget. And even when FUBU became a globally recognized brand, our team continued to practice it. While competitors came into our space with flashy advertising campaigns and huge marketing budgets, we continued to outperform their sales due to our strong reliance on this principle. In fact, after looking back on some of my biggest mistakes, it was during those times that I thought throwing cash at the problem would solve it, and, man, was I wrong! It’s from these failures and working with so many rising entrepreneurs that forced me to relearn how to use the power of broke mindset across all of my businesses.
This video is the first in a series I’m doing with Forbes that sets the stage for how you can utilize this mindset to achieve long-lasting success. Throughout this series, I will be giving you exclusive access to some of my one-on-one interviews with the wildly successful entrepreneurs featured in The Power of Broke. It was important for me to showcase these interviews and make them a central part of my book. I wanted my readers to understand that people in all industries could practice this mindset and that it certainly isn’t exclusive to me. So many entrepreneurs from completely different backgrounds and of all walks of life have found success in a similar way. These individuals are some of my friends, colleagues and mentors, including:
• Professional Skateboarder & Reality TV Star – Rob Dyrdek
• Best-Selling Author and Angel Investor – Tim Ferriss
• Social Media Icon & “Selfie” Queen – Acacia Brinley
• Electronic Dance Music (EDM) DJ, Producer, and Music Executive – Steve Aoki
All of them have made a meaningful mark on their respective industries and they all have something in common. They each started with limited resources, but instead of letting that stop them, they used it as a catalyst to get creative, think outside of the box, and let passion fuel their success.
I hope you enjoy the official trailer for my new book, The Power of Broke, and stay tuned for more exclusive content to come!
