Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of The Power of Broke and "Shark" on ABC's hit show Shark Tank explores how grit, persistence, and good old-fashioned hard work are the backbone of every successful business and individual, and inspires listeners to Rise and Grind their way the top.

Daymond John knows what it means to push yourself hard - and he also knows how spectacularly a killer work ethic can pay off. As a young man, he founded a modest line of clothing on a $40 budget by hand-sewing hats between his shifts at Red Lobster. Today, his brand FUBU has over $6 billion in sales.

Convenient though it might be to believe that you can shortcut your way to the top, says John, the truth is that if you want to get and stay ahead, you need to put in the work. You need to out-think, out-hustle, and out-perform everyone around you. You've got to rise and grind every day.

In the anticipated follow-up to the best-selling The Power of Broke, Daymond takes an up close look at the hard-charging routines and winning secrets of individuals who have risen to the challenges in their lives and grinded their way to the very tops of their fields. Along the way, he also reveals how grit and persistence both helped him overcome the obstacles he has faced in life and ultimately fueled his success.

Wake up call

I’ve heard these lessons before but Rise And Grind really hit home for me. I’ve been looking forward to the release and when it finally was available I immediately listened from start to finish. Then listened again. Its a great helps to me already.

Worth a listen

Where does Rise and Grind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Rise and Grind is among the better motivational books that I've listened to in terms of message. I like Sway, but his reading style was frustrating, at times, as his words didn't flow with the content as it should have. I understand why Damon chose to have an alternate narrator, but he may have chosen the wrong person this time. When in doubt, call Morgan Freeman.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The most memorable anecdotes were from Carlos Santana and Wendy Williams. Tyler the Creator was also and interesting insight.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were no tears, but there may have been a chuckle or two, here and there.

G.R.I.N.D

Would you consider the audio edition of Rise and Grind to be better than the print version?

Although nothing can beat a good printed book, this audible edition was great!

What did you like best about this story?

I love the fact that DJ interviewed so many talented and successful people. Lots of great advice and tips on how we can all make the most out of our days.

Have you listened to any of Daymond John and Sway Calloway ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to any other Daymond John audible.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I finished this book in 2 days thanks to audible. I devoured it and will continue to listen to it again and again.

Any additional comments?

I love all of DJ books but this one is by far my favorite. I don't just Rise and Grind, I AM Rise and Grind! I had already decided to make 2018 the "year of the grind" and with DJ as a mentor, I know I will crush 2018 and make it my best yet! Thanks so much Daymond!

something fresh

I wasn't sure i would learn anything new about the people featured in the book, but i did. i thoroughly enjoyed the book. It is filled with gems. John compassionately delivered the hard message about doing what you have to do. i especially appreciated the epilogue where he reveals how getting cancer reactivated ans renewed his focus for what he does and why. i will definitely listen to this again.

Understanding the "Grind," to Success

This was a good book. It's written for everyone. I especially liked the "Power Facts" and "Grind Checklists" after each guest interview. I've never read a book that really offers such details about what's it takes to be successful.

Not a big fan of the narrator.

another must have

I review a lot if these kinds of books, but this is a top 10 for me. I think anyone and everyone who feels disadvantaged should read or listen to this book and realize they are in control of their lives!

Work hard

Work hard and grind when you don’t want to. Boom summed up. Pretty basic and I had bigger expectations.
