Dapper Dan’s book full of entrepreneurial lessons, but this quote from the intro on how “value” is determined by the person doing the purchasing, and “advice” always contains an element of truth, is perfect:
The secret to what I do, is to capture what you think you look good in. But I also had a slogan: “Everything in your mind might not look good on your behind.”
I highly recommend Dapper Dan: Made in Harlem for anyone who is a fan of how grit, culture, and creativity can change a person’s life. This is not a normal life/business story by miles.
