In this talk, John Paul DeJoria inspires individuals to stop imagining and start doing. There’s strength in masses, but the masses are made up of individuals. Don’t wait for the masses to take action, be confident in your own power and act on it. Adjust your mindset to know you have the ability to be the change in the world.
John Paul DeJoria, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board, John Paul Mitchell Systems and The Patrón Spirits Company, is a first-generation American turned entrepreneur, philanthropist and pillar of the business community. He has struggled against the odds not only to achieve success, but to share his success with others, always living his motto: “Success unshared is failure.”
In 2011, John Paul signed Bill Gates and Warren Buffet’s “The Giving Pledge” as a formal promise to continue giving back. The same year, he established JP’s Peace, Love & Happiness Foundation as a hub for his charitable investments, which support the core values of his companies: sustainability, social responsibility and animal-friendliness.
