Who needs Har­vard or Whar­ton? For the real se­crets of fi­nan­cial suc­cess, just lis­ten up at par­ties, restau­rants and even bar­ber­shops.

HHe’s a mul­ti­mil­lion­aire and a star in­vestor on the hit show Shark

Tank. Yet Robert Her­javec ad­mits: “I’m not a very smart guy.” His fam­ily emigrated from Croa­tia to Canada when he was eight, and he didn’t go to fancy schools. “But I learnt from ev­ery­body around me,” he says. “When I was a waiter, I learnt from the bus­boy how to quickly clear ta­bles. I paid at­ten­tion to the busi­ness­men’s lunch con­ver­sa­tions. I’ve al­ways been a scav­enger for ed­u­ca­tion.” Robert went on to make an es­ti­mated US$100 mil­lion as a tech en­trepreneur, and he’s proof that you don’t have to be text­book smart to be suc­cess­ful.

As he puts it: “The world is full of ed­u­ca­tion if you choose to open your eyes and ears to it.”

You’re about to meet five guys who did just that. They over­heard snip­pets of wis­dom and used them to be­come more suc­cess­ful. This sim­ple strat­egy can work for you, too.

Are you lis­ten­ing?
