My guest today is serial entrepreneur, billionaire, and philanthropist John Paul DeJoria, who is best known as a co-founder of the Paul Mitchell line of hair products and The Patrón Spirits Company. Today, he’s one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world, with billions in profits. But he wasn’t always a fabulously wealthy businessman. Once upon a time, he was literally sleeping in his car and selling shampoo bottles door-to-door.
John Paul knows what it takes to build a successful business from the ground-up. He knows what it means to have a billion-dollar mindset, overcome the fear of rejection, and make wise investments that will allow you to grow the kind of business you’ve only dreamed of.
In 2011, John Paul signed the “Giving Pledge” created by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffet. Today, the commitment includes more than 200 of the world’s wealthiest individuals who will “give the majority of their wealth to address some of society’s most pressing problems.” John’s using the wealth that he’s earned to give back in a big way.
We had an incredible conversation about how John Paul came from nothing and how he was able to create multiple globally successful businesses by facing rejection head-on. This conversation was so inspiring to me, and I think it will inspire you too. Let’s get started!
