I thought I may take a break before reading another personal growth book but I have since decided that the message in this recommendation of the month, was worth reading and sharing.
Today I want to introduce you to Daymond John’s The Power of Broke book. This book is timely in that it profiles various creatives, entrepreneurs, entertainers, and authors who embody a can do mindset.
The power of broke is looking up at the sky, wondering what you’ve got to do to catch a break, and saying, “God, why am I doing this?” It’s living with the constant fear that you’ve gone crazy for putting it all on the line—but putting it out there anyway.
This book reminds me of Robert Kiyosaki’s rich dad. His rich dad said if you pay yourself first, you are forced to use your creativity to find a way to pay your other financial obligations.
Daymond John is a shark from Shark Tank, founder of FUBU and a global entrepreneur. You can view the book trailer here:
I am a believer of reading a sample to ensure the book is something which would apply to my life and circumstances. Daymond John’s website offers a free chapter of the book along with a free guide on his shark points. If you think this book may not be for you read the full title – The Power of Broke: How Empty Pockets, Tight Budget, and a Hunger for Success Can Become Your Greatest Competitive Advantage. The title grabs your attention and makes it relevant to today’s current events.
The book is available through your local library, bookstores and ebook provider. Download the sample chapter and resources then sit back with a glass of wine or cup of coffee. Enjoy spending time with the mentors within the pages of this book.
