Kevin O’Leary (aka “Mr. Wonderful”), Shark Tank Host

Today, my guest is Kevin O’Leary (aka “Mr. Wonderful”), the Co-Host of Shark TankEntrepreneur and Investor.  In 1993, he launched The Learning Company, which developed software that helped kids with reading and math. Six years later, he sold it to Mattel for 3.7 billion dollars, one of the largest tech deals in Canadian history. As an “Eco-preneur,” Kevin specializes in investments that make money–and are environmentally friendly. In 2003, he co-founded Storage Now, Canada’s leading developer of climate controlled storage facilities; in 2007, it was acquired by In Storage REIT, for $110 million dollars. He is also the co-host for Discovery Channel‘s Project Earth, which explores ways to reverse global warming. His 2012 book The Cold Hard Truth About Men, Women and Money is a candid take on finance, and #1 Globe and Mail bestseller. A shrewd investor, Kevin is on the investment committee of Hamilton Trust, and on the strategic advisory board of Genstar Capital, a $1.5-billion private equity firm. He is also the host of the podcast “Ask Mr. Wonderful.”
