Book Club: The Power of Broke by Daymond John with Daniel Paisner

This book was on my must read list for awhile. The Power of Broke is about mindset. Daymond describes it as “substance over flash, creativity over certainty, and taking a chance over playing it safe.” He says that no matter how much money you have, that it will never be enough to buy the passion, ingenuity, and determination it takes to have success in business. We can look at life and see that not always the most rich person is the most successful in every aspect of their life. The Power of Broke states that there is an education you can get from a school and read about and then there is an education you can get from experience. Daymond shows that you have to not be afraid to fail . You will learn your most important lessons when you pockets are empty.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who has thought of starting their own business. This book will encourage you and inspire you to get started.

Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families.

The book really is more about the couples then the children crime but the book really focus on Paul. it honestly took me some time get to the main point but all in all its a page turner.haven’t seen the movie yet but can’t wait to see how it adds up to the book.
