Star of ABC’s Shark Tank

Daymond John

Daymond John is a wealthy entrepreneur who benefitted from what he calls the "Power of Broke."

In some parts of the world he is best known for the hip hop clothing line he started when he was 23 in a house in Queens, N.Y., and expanded internationally. It is named FUBU -- For Us By Us.

But to millions who may never have worn FUBU apparel, the Council's Friday, January 22, speaker is better known as one of the panelists on the ABC's Shark Tank, the business pitch reality TV show featuring Dallas Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban.

John's practice of the "Power of Broke" began when he was selling home-sewn T-shirts from his house. He had no funding and an extraordinarily small budget. But he saw his market, persuaded three friends to join his efforts and converted part of his mother's home into a FUBU factory. FUBU became a fantastic success, launching John into a career that has included entrepreneurial awards, magazine covers and television stardom.

All that success emanates from the "Power of Broke." As he explains, "broke" is an entrepreneur's competitive advantage, forcing the business person to be creative while remaining "laser-focused" on business goals. Working efficiently and remaining connected with consumers add strength to the "power of broke."

In addition to his famous clothing line, John is also known as a branding expert, author, consultant and motivational speaker.
