Here, the FUBU founder and star of ABC's Shark Tank shows that, far from being a liability, broke can actually be your greatest competitive advantage as an entrepreneur. Why? Because starting a business from broke forces you to think more creatively. It forces you to use your resources more efficiently. It forces you to connect with your customers more authentically and market your ideas more imaginatively.

I have enjoyed many books by many great authors, but I would have to say this is one of the best. Often times books will show you how to get a great success but only a few of them tell you how to do it from nothing.
Daymond shares his real life story of struggling and provides a blueprint, and the understanding, for you to get to where you desire to go.
This power of broke is what has fueled me for the years of being in entrepreneur, and now I understand why I act the way I act.
This is definitely a must read book for every entrepreneur.
