Kevin O’Leary – Take Prisoners and Come Home

Kevin O'Leary

“Here’s how I think of my money – as soldiers – I send them out to war everyday. I want them to take prisoners and come home, so there’s more of them.”

– Kevin O’Leary

Anyone who has seen Shark Tank knows that Kevin O’Leary is ruthless when it comes to matters concerning money. A strategic investor and media personality, he’s worn a number of hats and has a hand in everything from television hosting to winemaking, but none of his accomplishments have been without a clear mind about where to send his soldiers.

He fights to the top, prioritizes financial success, and celebrates capitalism (on the wealth disparity in North America, he said, “It’s fantastic and this is a great thing because it inspires everybody, gets them motivation to look up to the one percent and say, ‘I want to become one of those people, I’m going to fight hard to get up to the top.’”).

Many of us aren’t yet at the top, either by choice or by unwillingness to send those soldiers out each and every day, but sometimes it’s important to be reminded that business is a battlefield, and you have to be as ruthless as Kevin O’Leary to be where he is.
