Here, the FUBU founder and star of ABC's Shark Tank shows that, far from being a liability, broke can actually be your greatest competitive advantage as an entrepreneur. Why? Because starting a business from broke forces you to think more creatively. It forces you to use your resources more efficiently. It forces you to connect with your customers more authentically and market your ideas more imaginatively.

The first four chapters are incredibly hard to listen to. It's author drones on about his experiences and then adds his book title at the end of the story. It's not informative at all. His point could've been summed up in a blog post. Dull read.

First, you'll learn the essence of what leadership is and the essential traits of a leader. The second half of the book focuses on how to lead yourself first, grow in your influence, and master the growth cycle to always become a better and more effective leader. The final chapter will blow you away as you will learn how to actually recreate and duplicate yourself into new leaders that carry on your vision for the future and leave a true legacy you can be proud of!

There's nothing here you can't learn from a social media post. There's no depth or references. Poor read.

We all have heard of the phrase "money can't buy happiness", but what we don't realize is a lot of us are under the control of the media and advertising industry, and have been fed the idea that having more materialistic possessions can help you experience a much happier and more fulfilling life. This obsession with having fancy clothes, nice cars, or bigger houses has distracted many people from being kind, friendly, and respectful to each other. The materialistic mindset has also caused a large number of people to get into serious debt.
