Some men might be embarrassed to tell you they know how to sew. Not Daymond John (and neither should you!). Instead, Daymond John took what he knew and ran with it, creating a business empire from nothing. From his website:
“His first foray into the apparel market came when he wanted a tie-top hat he had seen in a popular music video but could not find one for a good price. With the sewing skills he had learned from his mother, Daymond started making the hats for himself and his friends. Realizing he was on to something, Daymond made a sizeable order of the tie-top hats, sold them on the streets of Queens one day, and made $800 in just a few hours.”
From there he joined with some friends and created his own fashion line, FUBU. He then parlayed his initial business acumen, and is now known as a successful entrepreneur, investor, author, and television personality.
Daymond John appears in the hit reality TV show Shark Tank. Shark Tank describes itself as a show where several self-made tycoons “give budding entrepreneurs the chance to make their dreams come true and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires.” Survival of the fittest, indeed.
