Power Fact: Before publishing his first book, Stephen King was ready to give up his writing career.

He has since gone on to sell over 350 million copies of his books, most of which have been made into major motion pictures.

Had the chance to meet Daymond John, founder of FUBU, at the Babson Entrepreneurship Forum a few weeks ago. He was such a great guy and gave a really inspirational and insightful talk. Hope to achieve his level of success one day!
