For more than 30 years, Kevin Harrington has empowered entrepreneurs and innovative business leaders to turn dreams into mind-boggling reality.
An original “shark” on the hit TV show Shark Tank, the creator of the infomercial, pioneer of the As Seen on TV brand, and co-founding board member of the Entrepreneur’s Organization—Kevin Harrington has pushed past all the questions and excuses to repeatedly enjoy 100X success.
His legendary work behind-the-scenes of business ventures has produced well over $5 billion in global sales, the launch of more than 500 products, and the making dozens of millionaires.
Twenty of his companies have each topped $100 million in revenue.
Kevin understands the unique pressures you face as an entrepreneur and innovative business leader, as well as the restless spirit within that keeps you striving to be, do, and have more.
From an early age, Kevin sensed a passion for business.
As a boy growing up in a blue-collar Ohio family, he started selling newspapers on the street at the age of nine and launched his first business at fifteen—sealing driveways in the hot summer sun.
He soon graduated to selling high-end baby high chairs door-to-door but didn’t experience breakthrough success until he met an experienced guide.
This guide began teaching him the secrets of selling success and introduced him to resources from Napoleon Hill and Zig Ziglar.
As Kevin soaked up their wisdom, his personal and business growth began to skyrocket. By his first year in college, he had built his first million-dollar enterprise.
Kevin then began selling franchises and working with entrepreneurs. He created small business centers—one-stop shops where entrepreneurs could find support and be empowered to succeed. Through his entrepreneurial experiences, Kevin realized his talent for turning underutilized assets into growth opportunities.
While watching late-night television, he realized nothing was being broadcast on the Discovery Channel after normal broadcast hours. He seized the opportunity to launch what later came to be called the infomercial. Before long, he had helped make “but wait, there’s more” part of our cultural history.
He’s launched massively successful products like The Food Saver, Ginsu Knives, The Great Wok of China, The Flying Lure, and many more. He has worked with amazing celebrities like Billie Mays, Tony Little, Jack Lalanne, and George Foreman to name a few. Kevin then built on that success to help pioneer the As Seen on TV brand.
After empowering others to achieve success, he recognized the shifting marketplace trends and began to intentionally build his personal brand.
His platform-building efforts earned him a seat as an original “shark” on the hit TV show Shark Tank , where he continued to live out his passion—empowering entrepreneurs to greatness.
As a business shark, Kevin knows how to disrupt the marketplace and orchestrate a killer investment deal, bring the best resources to the table and build thriving businesses from scratch. But his people-first, win-win perspective is at the heart of everything.
Like his sales mentor, Zig Ziglar said, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
Kevin’s been called The Entrepreneur’s Entrepreneur and the Entrepreneur Answer Man, because he knows the challenges unique to start-ups and has a special passion for helping entrepreneurs succeed.
