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.

The first paragraph of Rise and Grind advises the reader to spend time wisely because time is the only thing that you cannot get back. Thankfully, the time that you take to read the book will be time well-spent.
Rise and Grind is motivation that actually works. It gives powerful advice on how to maximize your time by making the best use of every moment. The foundation of the book is advice that Daymond John received from his mother - his mother displayed a giant can opener that read THINK BIG and also taught him that time will pass anyway, so he might as well use his time productively.
The book is filled with old school advice that you would get from your mother or grandmother who had to work two or three jobs to make ends meet. My takeaways from the book: Have a killer work ethic and maximize your time. According to Daymond, the thing that all the entrepreneurs that are featured in the book do well is that they know how to both work hard and work smart. -Janet Autherine
