Overview

From Poverty To Power Moves by Dashawn Taylor

“Success is in the jaws of defeat” That is the quote Dashawn Taylor lives by. Since a young child, Dashawn has always been considered to be a driven person. Even while growing up in his hometown of Trenton, New Jersey, Dashawn used his street smarts, book smarts and drive to make the right decisions on the road to success. At the age of 11, Dashawn started his first business. He sold his bus tickets to his classmates every day for 2 years. He used the money to buy records and studio equipment to start his first rap group. Hip-Hip music influenced Dashawn throughout his life. And soon after graduating college at Rutgers University, Dashawn founded Real-hiphop.com with his partner Kyle Newsome. In 2003, Real-Hiphop.com broke online records by reaching over 5 million unique users per month. Because of the success of the online magazine a print version of the website was launched. In November of 2004, Real-Hiphop.com::The Magazine was founded. Real-Hiphop.com has opened many doors for Dashawn. In fact, in his new book “From Poverty To Power Moves”, Dashawn tells of his road to success and gives the new generation of entrepreneurs tips on how to be successful.

Very good reading. I brought mines on friday when I met him he signed it for me. I finish it next day. I loved the love the whole family had for each other you do not see that to much now. His mother is a trip boy that is not your baby.I am going to lend my grandson my copy to show him you can be anything you want. All you have to do is stay in school be be focus and do not let anyone tell you want you can not do. I highly recommend this book the young men around need to read it.

This book basically takes you from Dashawn's early childhood years to his becoming of the powerful man we know today.. What I thought was different about this book from other stories I have witnessed was that it didn't carry that 'usual' plot, you know the young man growing up with very little parenting, getting caught up in the drug game or other 'traps' our young people face today. This book directly pointed to the fact that there was so much love in the family and and so much respect for one another. Not only a was there a strong presence of a loving mother and father who carfeully instilled core values into their children but there were also four boys who would ride to the end for one another. That's definitely something I'd like to see more of. Families united. As you read 'From Poverty to Power Moves' you will get the feeling that you know Dashawn personally just as I did. He really opens up about himself and isn't afraid to say 'this is where I came from' and now I look forward to the next book or endeavor Dashawn will take on.. The book immediatly grabs you from the very beginning and continues to reel you in all the way to end. Dashawn even drops jewels with his 10 commandments which I know for sure I will be abiding by from now on. The book proves regardless of whatever situation you grow up in you can still acheive great things if you put your mind to it. Thank you Dashawn.

I would reccommend this book to anyone. I read it and passed it on to young men that I knew and it proved to make a positive change in their lives.The author shows that you don't have to let your situation overtake you.

this was a excellent read. dashawn walked me through his life and explained what makes him the man he is today. the bright spot for me was the family unity, no matter what happened his brothers had his back, but when the brothers couldn't help mom and dad were always there for backup. His mom sacrificed her wants to make sure her boys had what they needed and were brought up right. she expected great things out of her boys and they knew it. Their father also knew the boys were destine for greatness and even made them dress the part. 'From poverty to power moves' definitely describes the book, dashawn came from nothing to becoming a successful business man all with his family's love and support, and with the THE TEN HUSTLE COMMANDMENTS he's letting us in on the secret to his success. DEFINITELY check out this book.

After meeting Dashawn and purchasing his book, it has been an inspirational move. I read your book and it's filled with emotion,humor, and real-life struggles that most people haven't made it through. You have,and that's encouraging. This book is very 'uplifting' to those who read it. Much Love, Lia

I read this book in a day after meeting the author at a book signing. I was amazed at how poised he was and how warm he was with a room that held up and coming hiphop artists, college alumni, party goers, and other average book readers...His story is indeed an upward move from a path that may have lead him towards a life geared towards failure, but through detailed events and accounts of positive nurturing and community intervention his story proves to be an inspiration to many. I'd recommend this book to individuals that are inspired by life and how art imitates life. It will make you laugh at yourself through his childhood adventures and may allow you to get in the heads of many teens by dipping into his point of view...
