When Robert Herjavec was seven years old, his family relocated to Nova Scotia in Canada,  eventually settling in Toronto. On matriculation from high school, Herjavec enrolled at the University of Toronto, from where he graduated with a double degree in political science and English literature. Herjavec started his career as an assistant film director, working on numerous productions, but before he established himself as a successful businessman, Herjavec was a waiter, as well as a retailer among many other jobs. He then worked for such companies as Logiquest, before he established his own company in 1996, BRAK Systems, integrating security software, and which he eventually sold in 2000 to AT&T Canada for 30 million dollars

Robert then founded The Herjavec Group in 2004, bigger and better than BRAK whereby it has become the largest IT security provider in Canada. Over the years, the company has expanded to employ 150 personnel, while sales have risen from 400,000 dollars to 125 million dollars

In addition to collecting its own revenue, however, Herjavec Group has also purchased such profitable companies as Metacomm, SecurityLinq, Sensible Security and Zentra Technologies, considerably enhancing Herjavec’s status in the Canadian business community. All add steadily to Robert’s net worth.

Quotes

#Quote
1A goal without a timeline is simply a dream.
2[to a Shark Tank contestant that refused to move production out of the US, in 2012] Look, America's the land of opportunity. It welcomes all. It's tough, it's tough when people lose their jobs but it's a global economy. I think Americans can compete on a world-class scale anywhere. So whether you make it here or you make it there, you build a successful business, it's not about "Made in America" because we're all immigrants. We would've never had the opportunity to come here if everybody thought that way. And again, I'm trying not to be disrespectful because my dad was a factory worker. You know, when we came here, he worked in a factory and swept floors, for a guy who was proud from the country that... [tries to hold back tears] You know, I just remember my dad came here and worked in a factory... People made fun of him because he wasn't American, and they called him all kinds of names, and- and- and it hurt him, *deeply*... You know, my dad passed away last year, and... I just- I always asked him what he was most proud of, and the first factory job - not when he made some money, not when he got promoted - that factory job where he swept floors... that made him proud.
3Don't ever be enamored by what something sells for. It's more important what you get to keep in your pocket.
4A good entrepreneur never takes 'no' for an answer, but a smart businessman knows when to move on.
