As a 19-year-old professional rugby player in Australia, Anthony Amos could not have imagined the empire he was about to build. The Hydro Dog dog-cleaning business he started two years later rapidly became a popular national franchise, firmly establishing Amos as a start-up legend. Now living in the U.S., the self-made millionaire is set to re-launch his business publication, How to Catch a Shark.
In How to Catch a Shark, Amos shares his unique experience of “catching” the well-known Shark Tank investor Kevin Harrington. From the author’s story of moving his family to the U.S. to his fascination with Swim with the Sharks without Being Eaten Alive author Harvay Mackay, Amos reels readers in with his do-it-yourself adventure on identifying and catching the high-powered executives that run the business world. The how-to guide analyzes the different types of investors and includes step-by-step strategies to gain buy-in from these key individuals. Especially important for budding entrepreneurs, How to Catch a Shark provides expert coaching on communicating value propositions and leveraging connections that get results.
Amos’ work is more than a guide for networking best practices. On the importance of the book, he comments, “Catching a shark is like putting a rocket on your back and flying to the moon. The right shark will expedite your growth and direction with their connections and vision. It’s about positioning your business in an elevated place.”
100% of the revenues from the book sales of How to Catch a Shark will be donated to the Bathe to Save Tour, an initiative Amos launched to raise awareness for animal rescues. Amos and his family are currently touring the country on the Bathe to Save National Tour, covering 50 states in 18 months in an effort to raise $1 million and improve the lives of over 25,000 dogs.
How to Catch a Shark is a definitive volume for up-and-coming executives seeking to take their business to the next level. The book is available on Amazon, and more information can be found at www.howtocatchashark.com.
