“Build Wealth Like A Shark,” written by Kevin Harrington, Scott Keffer, and 29 leading financial advisors from the US and Canada, was officially launched on January 19, 2021, and climbed to the top of the bestsellers lists in several countries.
The book became a #1 bestseller in the USA, Canada, and Australia, and reached the top 5 bestselling books in the UK. All in all, it appeared on 47 bestseller lists, of different categories, including Finance, Investing, Economics, Personal Finance, and even the overall “Nonfiction Books”, to name a few.
The book was side by side (and mostly outselling) notable authors like Stephen Covey (“The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”), Robert Kiyosaki (“Rich Dad, Poor Dad”), Dave Ramsey, Suze Orman, Mike Michalowicz (“Profit First”), Simon Sinek (“Start With Why”), Napoleon Hill (“Think and Grow Rich”), and more.
According to USA Today, “Only 13% of Americans with at least $1 million of investable assets feel wealthy… The fear of running out of money in retirement and their reliance on their own savings—rather than Social Security and employer-funded pensions—during their golden years makes it harder for even well-positioned Americans to feel financially wealthy…”
These are people who’ve accomplished what 97% of Americans have not—they’ve successfully accumulated at least $1 million. Yet, building wealth is more than just accumulating. It’s also necessary to maintain that wealth for lifetime financial security and a lasting legacy.
The challenges of building and keeping wealth are myriad and formidable. Often cited as the biggest challenge to amassing wealth is taxes. The most successful people have historically shouldered the bulk of the tax burden. According to the Tax Foundation, in 1980, the top 10% of income earners in the U.S. paid 49% of all taxes. In the latest data, the percentage of taxes paid by top income earners has skyrocketed to 69%, an increase of over 40%!
However, there are also numerous strategies to preserve, protect, and pass on wealth. In this book, Build Wealth Like A Shark, readers will hear from the original Shark on ABC TV’s Shark Tank, Kevin Harrington, international business growth coach, Scott Keffer, and 29 other leading authorities who share sound strategies, practical tips, and real-world stories on how to Build Wealth Like A Shark. The co-authors were carefully selected by Harrington and Keffer.
Readers discover the biggest financial and tax obstacles to building and keeping wealth; the principle of “true wealth”; the seven major financial blind spots; how to avoid one of the worst retirement-income strategies; the three reasons never to invest in real estate; and how to avoid financial divorce disasters, among others.
Besides gaining fame on Shark Tank, Kevin Harrington is the creator of the As Seen on TV brand, a co-founding board member of the Entrepreneur’s Organization. His behind-the-scenes work in 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.
Scott Keffer, CEO of Scott Keffer International, is an international business growth coach, best-selling author, and keynote speaker. As an authority on business growth and marketing, Keffer has been interviewed on radio and TV and has spoken at most major financial industry conferences. Keffer, known as The Million Dollar Mentor, has been called an “industry transformer” for his innovative systems and processes. Through his speaking engagements, training, and coaching, Keffer has trained tens of thousands of financial planners, investment advisors, and wealth managers from across the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
“Seeing the book’s success is heartwarming,” said Keffer, “I know this book has data that can help so many people build and keep wealth, and in a turbulent time like this, it is vital.”
