New York Times bestselling 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 readers to Rise & 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 bestselling 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.

An exhortation to work, work, work for what you want This is the second Daymond John book I’ve read and I readily admit to liking the man’s style.

Common Sense: who listens to that? Wrap it in a new buzz word, and more people will pay attention This book reminds me of “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield, who exhorts us to overcome *Resistance*, a blanket term for sloth, inertia, rationalization, procrastination, and whatever fears prevent us from accomplishing our goals. 

Bugs says:

A quick and easy read that’s more inspirational than anything, with a definite focus on work ethic & goal setting and management There’s no big secret or earthshaking new way of accomplishing anything in this book, but it is an easy read and it is inspirational. Mostly the book focuses on the importance of hard work, doing what it takes, and goal setting and achievement. One thing I like is that it is very easy to just read a chapter at a time for a bit of inspiration here and there. In the book, Daymon John has interviewed several successful people that he knows and he distills what has made them accomplish so much…
