I didn't know how I was going to be rich. . . . I didn't know how I was going to make my money.I just knew that there'd be opportunities that would present themselves."Growing up in Harlem, he acquired the entrepreneurial skills he would need to capitalize on those opportunities when they did arise.The attitude that he adopted in Harlem took him far: "You have to have this swagger.You have to have the best clothes, the best cars, the best girls, the best jewelry, and you have to make money to get those things, so everyone's always trying to get money."Instead of hanging out on a stoop in Harlem, as he once did, he now hangs out at his plush office in downtown Manhattan and gets paid handsomely for being there."How could I knock this hustle?"he asks.As Damon recounts, personal tragedy also shaped his rise to the top.A turning point occurred after his mother died: Only a teenager, he lost his sense of security and knew he had to take care of himself.Obliterated by the loss, he became fearless.At the same time, he tried to follow the Golden Rule by treating others as he wanted them to treat him.In his words, "The experiences I had made me the man I am today.Those experiences are the things that I sell, so it's just like to me life now is a constant test.You're tested every day to see if you're going to do the right thing or the wrong thing, and I know for sure what goes around always comes around."For someone who was the class clown and to his high-school peers probably the most unlikely to succeed, Damon has come a long wayâ€"without formally studying music, fashion, business, film, or any of the other enterprises with which he has been engaged.
