His early life

Daymond grew up with three siblings and he received his first break from music producer, Sean Puffy Combs. Sean gave him his first big break as he helped him design clothing for Biggie Smalls who rapped about Daymond in one of his songs called The Ten Crack Commandments. This song became very popular and it increased sales of FUBU Clothing. As a result, Daymond earned $100 million through sales of apparel between 1996 and 1999.

Within three years, FUBU had generated over $350 million in sales. In 2008, Daymond launched his first brand venture: The Shark Group Ltd., which served as a holding company for all of his companies and products under an umbrella known as The Shark Brand. By 2012, The Shark Group’s net worth had exceeded $250 million.
His investment, business and entrepreneurship ventures
His investments in consumer-goods startups have earned him more than $6 million since 2009, with his first investment in DrinkWater. Daymond has also been known to buy and sell quite a few cars from time to time. All totaled, he paid more than $100,000 for all of them combined back in 2016. In 2012, he and his partner took a trip to Dubai where they toured several high-end car dealerships before buying a pair of Rolls Royce Wraiths (one orange, one black) for about $600,000.

His successes & achievements
Daymond John’s net worth and awards are proof that hard work pays off. Born in New York City, Daymond moved to Queens at a young age and graduated from Manhattan Center High School before continuing his education at Ohio University. He worked as a salesman for Perry Ellis for five years before launching FUBU with two friends (including J. Alexander Martin) in 1992. The success of their initial line of clothing led to appearances on Oprah, Forbes lists and countless magazine covers. As of 2017, FUBU had sold over $6 billion in clothing worldwide and Daymond has stated that he is worth $250 million—and growing!
Assets & Property
Known for his role as an investor on Shark Tank, Daymond John is worth a decent amount of money. And, let’s be honest, he has been successful in his own right. It’s hard to pin down exactly how much he’s worth because his fortune is partly held in private companies and investment funds that aren’t publicly traded or required to report their revenue or profits. Additionally, business terms such as revenue can make it difficult to calculate net worth; after all, what constitutes revenue? But one thing we do know is that he did have a net worth of around $200 million back in 2015.
Major Sources of Income
The primary source of Daymond John’s wealth is his fashion and merchandising business FUBU. The company was originally started in 1992 by Daymond and four of his close friends. They had just $40 to their name, but in 10 years, FUBU had generated more than $6 billion in sales and employed nearly 8,000 people at its peak. Today, Daymond still serves as a creative director for FUBU while also being an active Shark on ABC’s popular show Shark Tank. He also has a number of partnerships with other major companies including: Twitter/Pocket, Ally Bank and Tullu Vodka among others.
