In a !me when the rich are seen as 'the
greedy 1%', one man uses his wealth to
make the world a be"er place while en‐
couraging others to do the same.
Born into impoverished beginnings in
East Los Angeles, at !mes homeless and liv‐
ing in his car, John Paul DeJoria spent his
early adulthood in and out of motorcycle
gangs including the Satan Slaves and Hells
Angels. A$er losing his brother in a horrific
motorcycle accident, 'JP' transformed his life
and built a wildly successful line of hair care
products with Paul Mitchell. Proving his suc‐
cess wasn’t a just fluke, JP then created the
largest tequila brand in the world – Patron.
"Good Fortune" reveals the success se‐
cret of one of the world's most celebrated
entrepreneurs: giving back. A modern day
Robin Hood of sorts, JP spends his life cre‐
a!ng back‐to‐work programs for the home‐
less, figh!ng whale poachers in the Arc!c
and working on over 100 other philan‐
thropic ventures. His mo"o is “success un‐
shared is failure.”
The son of Greek immigrants, JP is a pio‐
neer of “conscious capitalism” (also known
as “the triple bo"om line” – people, planet
and profit). With colorful characters such as
Arianna Huffington, Cheech Marin, Danny
Trejo and Michelle Phillips, “Good Fortune”
tells JP's inspiring life story and shows how
he uses business to make the world a be"er
place. Narrated by Dan Aykroyd, “Good
Fortune” is an upli$ing, inspiring portrait,
full of humor and substance.
