Kevin O'Leary: If you want to get rich, start working 25 hours a day, 7 days a week

Everybody seems to be striving for work-life balance. But if you want to be an entrepreneur, especially one who’s rich and successful, that’s not an option — you have to be prepared to work very hard, says financial expert and star of ABC’s “Shark Tank” Kevin O’Leary.

“If I have to give one piece of advice to someone who’s thinking about starting a business, I tell them this: Forget about balance,” O’Leary tells CNBC’s Make It. “You’re going to work 25 hours a day, seven days a week, forever.

“That’s what it takes to be successful.”

You’re going to be competing with tons of determined people who “want to kick your ass. It’s a job 24-7,” he continues.

“Get over it, and get ready for it.”

O’Leary isn’t the only money mogul to recommend a rigorous work schedule. Self-made millionaire Grant Cardone has said that while most people work 9 to 5, he works 95 hours per week, and if you ever want to be a millionaire, you need to do the same.

For his part, O’Leary is an expert at hustle and hard work. He typically wakes up at around 4:30 a.m. and juggles his many ventures, from managing his “Shark Tank” investments to lecturing at universities to running a number of his own businesses.

When it comes to investing in other entrepreneurs, he doles hundreds of thousands of dollars on “Shark Tank” each season, but only when he’s convinced they’ll work extremely hard to be successful.

“The biggest myth of being an entrepreneur is that you’re going to get rich overnight,” O’Leary says. “It practically never happens. Most people slog it out for years, and sometimes even decades.”

Still, O’Leary also says that when it comes to entrepreneurship, money shouldn’t be the motivating factor. What should keep you going through those long weeks and rough patches is the pursuit of personal freedom. And that’s what you should focus on.

“It’s a long, hard journey, but it’s worth it,” O’Leary says. “It’s not about the greed of money, it’s about the pursuit of personal freedom. If you’re successful as an entrepreneur, you will set yourself free, and that’s worth fighting for.”

Sustainability entrepreneur helps Asia business combat climate change

When Stephanie Dickson landed her dream job straight out of college, she thought she had it made.

She had fantasized her whole life about working in fashion and, suddenly, she had a job that allowed her to do that, organizing some of the industry’s biggest events across Asia.

But then one day the veil fell, and Dickson realized the job she had dreamed of was not what it seemed.

“I got my dream job,” Dickson told CNBC Make It. “But about three and a half years in, I just became really disconnected with the work I was doing.”

It was then 2015, and climate change was gaining increasing attention on the international stage. To Dickson’s surprise, she found there was one industry lurking at the center of the issue: Her own.

In fact, alongside commonly cited culprits like the energy, transport and agriculture sectors, the fashion industry is today considered one of the world’s largest polluters.

“I felt completely blindsided,” said Dickson, whose disillusionment led her to start watching documentaries and reading up on the issue. “I’d been working in this industry and I had no idea what actually was going on.”

Women Mean Business: Entrepreneur Devika Wood on standing up to sexual harassment

U.K.-based health care firm Vida Care has raised millions since 2016. “When I started to raise investment, I was put in sexually compromised positions by some shareholders, and sexual harassment. I was told that if I took somebody’s money, that I could take it, if I did something in return. And sadly, this happens far too often,” Devika Wood, co-founder of Vida, told an audience last week. Her comments during The Telegraph’s “Women Mean Business” event in London drew audible gasps from the crowd

Women Mean Business: Entrepreneur Devika Wood on standing up to sexual harassment

U.K.-based health care firm Vida Care has raised millions since 2016. On the way to establishing the business however, its co-founder was put in positions that she wasn’t comfortable with — and now she wants to make sure that others don’t have to go through what she did.

“When I started to raise investment, I was put in sexually compromised positions by some shareholders, and sexual harassment. I was told that if I took somebody’s money, that I could take it, if I did something in return. And sadly, this happens far too often,” Devika Wood, co-founder of Vida, told an audience last week. Her comments during The Telegraph’s “Women Mean Business” event in London drew audible gasps from the crowd.

“I have a load of female founders, friends, who are on the same journey as me who have been through the exact same situation. And sometimes we just don’t know who to go to and who to talk to about it — because we don’t have an option.”

Wood recalled that the majority of money raised for Vida had come from men — which she was thankful for, yet added that she would’ve liked more female investors involved, as she felt like she’d “have a better voice to be heard.”

Sports entrepreneur Michael Rubin sees ‘nothing but growth opportunity in China’

On Rubin’s most recent visit to China, where he’ll soon be launching Fanatics, a sports merchandise retailer and CNBC Disruptor 50 company, he said the excitement around basketball was something “you had to see … to believe.” “We had 45 million people watch our pre-season basketball game,” Rubin said. “That’s like half of a Super Bowl rating. That’s how rabid the basketball fans are in China. So, for me, I think we have nothing but growth opportunity in China.”

For Fanatics, a $4.5 billion direct-to-consumer manufacturer and retailer of licensed sports merchandise like jerseys, that opportunity could be in the billions of dollars, Rubin, who serves as Fanatics’ executive chairman, told Cramer.

The billionaire LA Times owner calls social media the 'cancer of our time'

Platforms such as Facebook’s News Feed have revolutionized how people consume media and how news organizations deliver content. But they have also been criticized for spreading so-called fake news and misinformation.

Soon-Shiong, a former surgeon turned entrepreneur, told “Squawk Alley” that “I say it’s the cancer of our time and social media is a form of metastasis of news. We need to change that.”

He described Facebook as a “advertising facing” organization, and therefore people cannot differentiate from “fake news,” “real news” or “opinion news.”

Soon-Shiong, born in South Africa and currently living in Los Angeles, is not the only high-level entrepreneur to publicly criticize social media.

Late last year, ex-Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya said on CNBC that social media is creating a society that confuses “popularity” with “truth.”

Soon-Shiong took control of the LA Times for $500 million in June. He joins the ranks of billionaires Marc Benioff and Jeff Bezos, who have also purchased media companies.

Benioff just bought Time magazine for $190 million in cash from Meredith Corp. Bezos owns The Washington Post.

Budsies toy entrepreneur mixed love of children and art on Shark Tank

This Shark Tank entrepreneur will turn your artwork into a plush toy 10:43 AM ET Fri, 21 Sept 2018 | 01:14

They say life imitates art, which is why Budsies has no problem making a name for itself in the toy industry. This South Florida-based company lets customers turn their original artwork into a plush toy.

Alex Furmansky, Founder and CEO of Budsies, pitched the heartwarming concept to the panel on “Shark Tank,”

He told the sharks: “Children have the most amazing minds. Their imagination inspires them to create the most fantastic artwork. So, rather than let their artwork take over our fridge, or get lost in piles in attics or basements gone forever — how can we treasure it?” he asked.

“Imagine if we could magically transform your child’s artwork into something real? Something tangible. Something…huggable,” he added.

On the show, Furmansky asked for $100,000 in exchange for a 5 percent stake in his company. While the outcome wasn’t exactly what they were expecting, Furmansky walked away feeling confident in his decision.

Furmansky said the awareness and recognition of his product, thanks to being on “Shark Tank”, is unparalleled. Being on the show has helped his business secure everything from partnerships to even a great office lease. His landlord is even proud to have a “Shark Tank” company in his complex.

The future of Budsies looks exceptionally bright, as the company has been on a high growth trajectory for the last 5 years with plans to expand. “At this point, we’ve produced nearly 70,000 unique designs and established ourselves as the #1 custom plush company worldwide,” Furmansky said.

Above all, Furmansky said that he’s most proud of his incredible team in Boynton Beach, Florida.

“Everyone is sharp, hungry for growth, and aligned with our mission.” He added: “In fact, we are wrapping up our 2018 Budsies Pals Program…where over 50 strong children facing tough struggles will receive free Budsies to bring them strength and comfort.”

Don’t miss Furmansky pitch Budsies on “Shark Tank” tonight at 9P ET on CNBC.

Kicking a common habit could help boost your career, says Estonia’s youngest-ever inventor

If you want to have a successful career, it can be tempting to try to be all things to all people. But, instead, you should know where to draw the line and be unashamed about saying no.

That’s according to Karoli Hindricks, who, with a resume of accolades including serial entrepreneur, European Parliament speaker and MTV’s youngest-ever CEO, is a success story by any standards.

However, it’s a lesson she learned the hard way: When Hindricks founded her first business at 16 — a line of reflective accessories for pedestrians — she became Estonia’s youngest-ever inventor and found herself suddenly in high demand.

“With my first business, I became so famous so fast,” said Hindricks, whose young success saw her invited to speak at countless schools and entrepreneur forums.

“I ended up spending more time talking about my business than running it,” Hindricks told CNBC Make It.

Speaking at this month’s London Fashion Week, the fashion designer told CNBC’s Tania Bryer that “it’s not easy” juggling it all, but she enjoys her job and works hard for it.

“Everybody says, ‘Do you ever freak out?’ ‘Yeah, absolutely,'” Beckham said Sunday. “We all do. When you’re a working mum, you feel torn, you feel guilty, but I just do the best that I can do. My kids and (soccer star husband) David will always come first.

“But it is no different for me to how it is for other working women — that’s why we need to support each other, first and foremost.”

Beckham said that “there can never be too much support” when it comes to building a business while looking after a family. She added that she had “no time” for those who criticize women who seek to tackle the work-life balance in their own way.

Nicolette Wilson-Clarke is a master coach and founder of Embodied Entrepreneur who helps creative executives reach their full potential by not letting insecurities get in the way of what they want to achieve.

“My role really as a master coach is to ask powerful questions to get to the core of the issue,” Wilson-Clarke said, adding that she tries to empower her clients and aid them on their entrepreneurial journeys by helping them stay focused, powerful and balanced — in both mind and body.

She asks important life questions, and observes the responses, to identify what obstacles impede each individual’s progress. This, she explained, allows her to cut straight to the point and remove any feelings of discomfort that the client may have.

Wilson-Clarke walks CNBC Make It through what it takes on a psychological level to succeed.

10 lessons that took an entrepreneur from a trailer park to multimillionaire status before 30

1. Learn to embrace loneliness

Long hours, regular knock backs and often isolated working can make the journey of an entrepreneur a lonely one. But while it’s important to take time out to socialize and look beyond your business, it’s also critical to embrace loneliness in the short term for results in the long term.

“Turning down plans, staying in on the weekends, etc. are often essential in reaching your goals as an entrepreneur, and those sacrifices may lead to extremely isolated periods of time, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel,” he noted. “The low points always lead to higher ones.”

2. Friends and family are sometimes a great ally, but often your worst enemy

Though they typically want the best for you, advice from friends and family can end up limiting you if they don’t share your mindset.

“The reason the one percent is the one percent is because they think and operate differently to the 99 percent,” said Adams. “Take advice and guidance from family and friends with a grain of salt, but always follow your gut, even if it strays off the given path your family has for you — it will pay off in the end.”

3. Everyone is on the same journey

It’s easy to look at those we consider successful and think they have it all figured out. But, in reality, everyone faces similar challenges when it comes to their careers, finances and relationships.

To avoid getting bogged down with the pressure of other people’s achievements, “compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today,” said Adams, quoting one of his favorite books, Jordan Peterson’s “12 Rules For Life.”

4. Ask for help

Don’t be afraid to reach out to others for guidance, especially when they have particular expertise you lack. That’s especially important for technical matters, like taxes, which can create a huge headache for businesses if handled incorrectly, said Adams.
