Description

Robert Herjavec has lived the classic “rags to riches” story, from having $20 in his pocket to starting up technology companies worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Now the star of television’s Dragons’ Den and Shark Tank, this son of Croatian immigrants earned his incredible wealth by overcoming the odds with hard work and determination. On television, Herjavec bankrolls the best inventions and shoots down the best of intentions. Now, he’s sharing his hard-won wisdom in one of the most inspirational business books of recent times.

In Driven, Herjavec shares the secrets that took him from his job waiting tables to growing his nascent technology company into a world-class conglomerate, The Herjavec Group. Herjavec’s principles are as valuable in the living room as they are in the boardroom. Anyone can succeed, on their own terms, by following his sage but simple advice—if they’re willing to take chances, to take control of their own future and to stay true to their own visions.

    From Dzhsksnsizbsj
    One of the things I love about watching Robert on the den until this season and still in shark tank is for his intelligent, insightful and precise point of view when querying pitchers. He's not a loose canon trying to feed his ego like others and doesn't speak just to hear his own voice. This book gives excellent insight on how he has reached all of his goals with excellent advice on how to do the same. A must read for any business junkie or entrepreneur.

    Simple, clear messages on what makes an entrepreneur successful. No guarantees but definitely a positive and motivational read. Spoken from someone who succeeded and understands what it took to get him where he is today.
