Hey Mr. Herjavec – Can I Buy A Copy Of Your Book?

One of my favorite TV personalities is Robert Herjavec. His rags to riches story is truly amazing but that’s not what makes him one of my favorites. Lots of people have gained great money & great wealth that came from very little. Well not exactly “lots” considering most people never get rich but there are enough examples. So what makes this guy unique? I think it’s his heart, kindness, and caring nature. That sounds slightly corny, let me explain dear readers…

So for those of you who don’t know Robert he came to Canada from Croatia with his family at the tender age of 10 years old on a boat with $20 to his name. Today he’s worth many hundreds of millions of dollars. His first company BRAK Systems was sold to ATT for a cool $100 million! Not bad for an immigrant who knew nothing, started with nothing, and didn’t have the money for a decent dinner, right?

The next company he was associated with sold for $225 million and now he owns “The Herjavec Group” (creative name Robert!). I heard about him when I first watched this neat TV show called Shark Tank on ABC. A professor of mine was raving about it so I checked it out, super awesome show (now being filmed for Season 2, yayy!). He’s also on Dragon’s Den which has become one of my top 5 favorites as well.

He recently appeared on Q TV promoting his new book, Driven:

Now what’s sad is I can’t buy a copy of the book. It’s only in Canada. We had a similar problem when shipping our holiday corporate gift baskets food to other countries. Not to mention Hollywood films that are worldwide can’t be complimented with our fun gift baskets because of shipping issues as well. Don’t even get me started on sending candle gift baskets in the mail.

But hey Robert, if you ever read this:

You have a lot of fans in the United States. Please publish it over here and let us read about your story. I’m sure many others like myself are dying to read it. Best of luck with your future ventures on Shark Tank & Dragon’s Den sir!

    Thanks for taking the time to write this post. It took me a while to get to grips with the general sentiment of the post but finally I did and I agree with you. I just wanted to know however, whether you really agree or whether you are writing this to cause some controversy?
