Title: The Power of Broke in Building Your Business

The Lesson: Trying to run a business without any money can be very frustrating, but the experience and wisdom that comes from maneuvering the entrepreneurial world without financing can give you a very special advantage.  In this episode of the School of Greatness podcast, Daymond John talks about the valuable perspective that comes from being broke – or in other words, how hustle is the best way to the top.

Notable Excerpt: “I’m not glamorizing not having resources in your life, because we all want to be able to take care of our family … but if you’re going to be [in that situation], tap into that hunger instead of complaining or feeling sorry for yourself.”

The Guest: John is an entrepreneurial advisor on the hit television show Shark Tank and the author of “The Power of Broke – a book on “how empty pockets, a tight budget, and a hunger for success can become your greatest competitive advantage”.

The Host: After spending years of his young life and athletic career struggling with his own emotional wellbeing, a crippling injury left Lewis Howes without an identity and without any work. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, however, Howes recreated himself as a multi-million dollar media producer, motivational speaker, bestselling author, and podcast host. The ex-football player now spends his days chatting with the most inspirational icons of our generation on his School of Greatness podcast.

Podcast: The School of Greatness podcast is available for download on Soundcloud and iTunes. You can also watch footage of the interviews on Howes’s YouTube channel.

Books: Howes is the author of the New York Times bestselling book “The School of Greatness”: an in-depth collection of lessons and wisdom that he has gathered from interviewing hundreds of the world’s greatest role models and thinkers. Howes’s latest book, “The Mask of Masculinity”, is based on his experience with the dangerous stereotypes and expectations that are placed on men in modern society.
