Alan Graham with John Paul DeJoria, former encyclopedia salesman, and co-founder of Paul Mitchell

After experiencing a childhood of poverty and his own encounters with homelessness in early adulthood, John Paul DeJoria is recognized as one of the greatest entrepreneurs and philanthropists in our country. He also exemplifies what Alan Graham likes to refer to as the Heart-Over-Pocket or H/P Ratio. From an early job as a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman to his role as co-founder of the Paul Mitchell line of hair products and also Patron tequila, John Paul lives by a key mantra – “Success unshared is total failure.”
