Philanthropy has gone hand-in-hand with hair care product entrepreneur's rise to the top. He will reveal why success unshared is failure at a special METal event hosted by Nextist broadcaster Ken Rutkowski on July 1.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 29, 2017 / John Paul DeJoria’s name is synonymous with Paul Mitchell Systems, the hair care company he co-founded, and the Patron Spirit Company, which makes world’s leading brand of 8premium tequila. But the entrepreneur, whose net worth is estimated to be well over $3 billion, has twice been homeless and forced to live out of his car. Those experiences spawned a strong desire to help others, making John Paul DeJoria’s name as well-known for philanthropy as business prowess.

In a rags to riches story that has been punctuated with good deeds, John Paul DeJoria is a passionate advocate of giving something back. In fact, giving is his style - literally. Paul Mitchell Systems’ hashtag is #givingisourstyle. JP’s personal motto is: “Success unshared is failure.” He believes doing good is key to finding - and keeping - good fortune.
