John Paul DeJornia - Shark Tank Investor
|Jon Paul and Wife Eloise DeJornia|
New Shark Tank Shark Season 5
Having a rough childhood after being sent to a foster home because his mom could no longer afford to take care of him, John Paul soon became a gang member in L.A. Fortunately his Math Teacher was able to chance his entire direction when he said "DeJornia would never succeed at anything in life". That single moment did change John Paul's life when he became more determined than ever To Succeed regardless of where he was at that time. He couldn't change the past, but was determined he would control his future which has now landed John Paul on the Biggest Business Reality TV Show in US History.
Getting into the Hair Care Industry first began for DeJornia when he was hired at Redkin Laboratories. Already showing the entrepreneur spirit, John Paul was abruptly fired over a disagreement with the company's business strategy.
In 1980 John Paul formed a partnership with Paul Mitchell using a $700 loan and started the John Paul Mitchel Systems. Today Paul Mitchell has annual sales in excess of $900 million around the world and has made DeJornia a billionaire a few times over. John Paul's Net worth has been estimated at over $4 billion with hundreds of millions already given away to dozens of charity organizations. John Paul clearly is a big in philanthropy with a Very Big Heart when it comes to helping others.
In addition to the Paul Mitchell Success, John Paul also is the majority owner of Patron Spirits Company that makes an Ultra-Premium Tequila, A Founding Partner for the House Of Blues Nightclub Chain, Touchstone Natural Gas, Diamond Audio and even has his own Harley Davidson Dealership to name a few.
John Paul DeJornia Interview with Barbara Corcoran
This interview was done a few years ago but still gives you a very good idea into John Paul's background and what he has done to become one of the most successful people in the world. A quote at the beginning of the interview is definitely worth writing down and making it apart of your being.
DeJornia said "Successful people do all the things unsuccessful people don't want to do".
Think about that for a moment and more importantly REMEMBER THIS when you are procrastinating completing a task or making that important phone call. Rejection is very much a part of Success that must be overcome before anyone becomes truly successful.
