After reading Barbara Corcoran’s “Shark Tales“, I continued my Shark Tank series with Robert Herjavec’s “Driven”.
Robert is a self-made millionaire, son of Croatian immigrants to Canada, and he built a multi million dollar internet security business.
He shares his journey, from working as a debt collector, to working at a men’s clothes shop, to working as a waiter, until starting his own business. There are many lessons from working those “less entrepreneurial” jobs.
Among the tips he shares are some on pitching ideas, dressing well, working for free (sometimes), seizing opportunity, learning from failure, thoughts about money, and many others.
In 50 very readable chapters, Robert writes in an easy to follow fashion. You’ll get through this book in no time.
As I did with Barbara’s book, I grabbed some good ideas from “Driven”.
Continuing this series, I will next review Kevin O’Leary’s “Cold Hard Truth On Men, Women & Money”.
