"Never Giving Up"

Billionaire John Paul DeJoria had a tough childhood, working his first job at age 9, bouncing into a foster home and then getting caught up in a Los Angeles street gang. A high school teacher even told him he was “least likely to succeed.” So it was devastating to be homeless at age 22 and 35. “Rent was overdue, and you know, a couple weeks later I was out there hustling, getting a job, picking up Coke bottles along the way, cashing them in, two cents for a little one, five cents for big one. And we ended up on the street for a few days there.”
