Who is Daymond John?

Daymond John - The Power of BrokeIn addition to appearing on Shark Tank, Daymond is also a best selling author and one of the most successful African American entrepreneurs.  

Daymond was not very good at school. As a matter of fact, he was dyslexic.

His first venture was starting a clothing company for men in his mother's house. His mother taught him how to sew and was a huge supporter of his business.

Today, his clothing company brand is worth $6 billion.

His book, The Power of Broke is a must have for your personal development library. Click Here to Get His Book.

25 Daymond John Quotes

One of the biggest reasons I love Daymond John is because he started from humble beginnings and didn't let his limitations stop him. His dyslexia didn't stop him from reading at night, or writing books.

Daymond also has practical advice for home business owners to build their own personal brand. According to John, so many online websites look the same and sell the same that their customers can't find them.

Here are 25 Daymond John quotes that will help give you the foundation to achieve success.
