Rise and Grind by Daymond John
I was feeling a little beat up when I started this book; so glad I dug in anyway! The day-in and day-out effort seems unappreciated sometimes, like it’s all for naught! In this book, I was reminded of the power of rising every day and grinding it out with purpose, efficiency, and focus.
Great to hear the daily routines and background stories of so many successful people that Daymond has been able to meet, work with, and interview including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kyle Maynard, Lola Alvarez (a Mom with a mission), Carlos Santana, Jake Kassan and Kramer LaPlante (those cool watches), Joel Osteen, and other amazing people. Daymond includes his thoughts and take-aways from his personal experiences, and from the impact these people, and others, have made on his life and career. I enjoyed his live presentation to our group, loved having my picture taken with him, and really enjoyed reading the book. Recommended! – CMW
