Biography, Books and Success
If it takes knowledge to build an empire, Eker has truly learned the hard way how wealth can be lost in a matter of years when one is not smart about his or her investments. After becoming a millionaire at a young age with his own chain of retail fitness stores, Eker lost all his money, company, and career achievements reportedly due to mismanagement. Not one to give up, Eker decided to further study the torturous relationship between wealthy people and money.
With his new-found expertise in hand, Eker then went on to write the number 1 Wall Street Journal’s business-book and New York Times bestseller, “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind“. The book, focused on how your own mental attitude can welcome wealth, has been thoroughly studied and the theories within have deemed him an expert on this topic.
One of Eker’s theories regarding success first introduced the world to the concept of “financial blueprints”, that is, your own predisposed views on money and how to use it. Eker’s theory also encompassed how you can change your “financial blueprint” in order to turn your financial life into a financial paradise.
Although his early career as a businessman was quite prosperous and eventful, his company, Peak Potentials Training, was sold in 2011 to Success Resources, an event-planning company.
Perhaps more than his achievements as a businessman and CEO, Eker’s work as an author and public speaker have pushed him into the spotlight, with the Wall Street Journal even praising his live seminars and written work.
Now that we have introduced Eker’s work as a public speaker, we can further discuss some of his live and online seminars. Eker offers 5 different online seminars, allowing you to learn how to increase your chances to succeed even without leaving your sofa! These web seminars offer real-life advice on an array of different topics, from “Zero To MultiMillionaire”, which is heavily focused on financial advice, to “Life Makeover System”, focusing on bringing happiness and joy back into your life.
Even more enticing and inspiring than his web seminars, you can also find live events hosted by Eker throughout the year. These events go into further detail about each financial mistake you may be making, how to fix it, and how to implement real change in your life.
With a curious attitude towards life, a thirst for knowledge, and an unstoppable desire to share his message with the world, T. Harv Eker is so much more than just an author, businessman, and public speaker. T. Harv Eker is simply put, a raging success.
As stated from his website, T. Harv Eker went from zero to millionaire in only 2.5 years. There is no official information about his net worth. However, his seminar business is very successful and run in many countries around the world which can easily generate for him tens of millions.
