Kevin’s mother was a skilled investor, and taught him much of what she knew, including the lesson to always save one-third of his money.

On the advice of his stepfather, Kevin attended university instead of pursuing his initial aspirations to be a photographer. It was at school that Kevin developed his interest in business and investing. Kevin graduated from the University of Waterloo with a bachelor’s degree in 1977, and an MBA from the Ivey Business School at the University of Western Ontario in 1980.

Kevin O’Leary Media and Other Ventures: 

In September 2011, Kevin O’Leary released his first book “Cold Hard Truth: On Business, Money & Life.” He released two follow-ups in 2012 and 2013. O’Leary’s first television appearance came in 2006 as one of the five venture capitalists on the CBC show “Dragons’ Den”.

Kevin O’Leary developed an on-screen persona as a blunt, bullying investor, something encouraged by the show’s producers. O’Leary was invited to join “Share Tank”, the American version of “Dragons’ Den”, in 2009.

Kevin O’Leary remained on both shows until leaving “Dragons’ Den” in 2014. Through his appearances on the two shows, he gained the nickname “Mr. Wonderful”, both a tongue-in-cheek reference to his reputation for being mean, but also that his blunt feedback is helpful to misguided entrepreneurs appearing on the show. He has a holding company, Something Wonderful, for managing his investments on the show.

Some of his notable deals from “Shark Tank” include investments in Talbott Teas (later acquired by Jamba Juice)  and GrooveBook (later acquired by Shutterfly).
