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 enjoyed Daymond's view on how to use a lack of resources as a source to empower out of the box thinking. It's good that someone is showing that you don't need milions of dollars to start a business that could turn into an empire.

Whether or not you have children, you know that education is vital to the prosperity and future of our society. Yet our current system simply doesn't work. Parents feel increasingly powerless, and nearly half of Americans give our schools a grade of "C". Now, in his new book, Ron Paul attacks the problem head-on and provides a focused solution that centers on strong support for home schooling and the application of free market principles to the American education system.

I love how Dr. Paul first takes you through the history of education and schooling to give you insight to how we got where we are today. I'm convinced that public schools don't have our children's best interest in mind. my child will be home schooled and I look forward to using the Ron Paul Cirriculum as my guide.

Since you were old enough to hold a job, you've been hoodwinked to believe that wealth can be created by blindly trusting in the uncontrollable and unpredictable markets: the housing market, the stock market, and the job market. I call this soul-sucking, dream-stealing dogma "The Slowlane" - an impotent financial gamble that dubiously promises wealth in a wheelchair. For those who don't want a lifetime subscription to "settle-for-less", there is an alternative.

When my friends ask me what's a good book to read about business, this is the first one I tell them to read. It explains so many of the most important concepts better than just about anyone else. Must listen!!
