Daymond John’s net worth of $350 million was not acquired by chance. He started FUBU, a clothing firm that would eventually produce $6 billion in revenue globally, after cultivating an entrepreneurial spirit via his full-time work in high school.
He didn’t have a lot of money or expertise when he started his business. He did, however, have his mother’s backing, who taught him to sew when he originally came up with the concept for a clothing line for young men. Not only that, but John’s mother agreed to let him utilise their entire house to expand the company.
