Fashion Industry News: Daymond John and The Power of Broke



Daymond John, founder of FUBU, star of Shark Tank and original Samsung C&T America success story, has released his new book, The Power of Broke: How Empty Pockets, a Tight Budget and a Hunger for Success Can Become Your Greatest Competitive Advantage. In his book he outlines his personal story from growing up in Queens, to launching FUBU, to Shark Tank. He gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at his success and how starting from nothing can be an asset rather than a liability.

 In a recent Forbes article by Dan Schawbel, John discussed his path to leadership and how he built FUBU from nothing. The article with John covers the importance of building a team, LL Cool J and John’s advice for future leaders. Read the whole article here.

 At Samsung, we are proud to be part of John’s team, having supported FUBU’s massive fashion business growth from virtually a startup company to sales of $200 million within 5 years.
