His first proper job was as a third assistant film director, but an inconsistent schedule didn't work for him. So he started selling Logiquest company's computer equipment. He soon became the general manager at the firm.
In 1990, Herjavec left Logiquest to launch his own company, BRAK Systems, which specialized in internet security software. Ten years later, he sold his company and became the VP of Sales at Ramp Network.

The millionaire businessman then joined the panel of Dragons' Den before featuring on Shark Tank. He has also participated in the dance reality show, Dancing with the Stars (DWTS).

One of the most successful jewelry designers, Lori Greiner, is a self-made businesswoman who has created over 700 products throughout her career. According to Celebrity Net Worth, her rumored net worth is $150 million.
