Best known as the co-founder of hair care company Paul Mitchell Systems and high-end tequila Patrón Spirits Company, John Paul DeJoria is as well known for his philanthropic work as he is for his entrepreneurial endeavors.
JP is currently in his early 70's and his a net worth is well over $3 billion but at two separate times in his life, he was homeless and living out of his car. The one-time door-to-door shampoo and encyclopedia salesman partnered with Paul Mitchell in 1980 and the two turned $700 into what would become John Paul Mitchell Systems, one of the most profitable hair care companies in the world.
When he’s not running one of his multi-million dollar corporations, DeJoria is busy diffusing landmines with Brad Pitt, helping the homeless and working to save animals and the environment with organizations such as Sea Shepherd, which recently unveiled the new M/V John Paul DeJoria, a 110-foot Island-class speed patrol boat.
