John Paul DeJoria on 20/20 Tonight!

In these troubled times, Barbara Walters shares advice for viewers worth listening to from four self-made, out-of-the-box creators and thinkers who made it big the old fashioned way – by creating products that people want. They didn’t make money by shuffling other people’s money around, which has been the focus of the Occupy Wall Street movement. They are four unique and surprisingly different billionaires who tell their stories of how they made it and now how they give back. They impart their wisdom and tips that can put viewers on the road to huge success, too:

  • John Paul DeJoria, a once homeless visionary who built two iconic companies Paul Mitchell hair care and Patron Spirits tequila
  • Lynn Tilton, who specializes in buying companies and breathing new life into them
  • Guy Laliberte, creator of Cirque du Soleil
  • Tony Hsieh, CEOof billion dollar business Zappos.

Laliberte, who went from street performer to billionaire circus ring leader, also gives “20/20″ a first look at his new Michael Jackson extravaganza.

“Billionaire Secrets: What They Know That Can Change Your Life” airs on “20/20″ on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

David Sloan is executive producer.
