Donald trump began his career working in the construction business with his father, Fred. “My father was my mentor and I learned a tremendous amount about every aspect of the construction industry from him,” he said. After five years, young Trump moved on to work in real estate in Manhattan, where his name became synonymous with some of the most prestigious addresses.

Trump International Hotel and Tower opened in 1997. It is one of only three properties in the country to have received a double Mobil Five-Star rating for both the hotel and its restaurant, Jean-Georges. In 2008, a second Trump Hotel and Tower opened in Chicago, and was called the “hottest new hotel in North America” by Condé Nast Traveler. Trump has developed award-winning golf courses in New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Palm Beach, and internationally in the Caribbean, Scotland, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

In addition to his real estate business, Trump is the best-selling author of The Art of the Comeback, The America We Deserve, How to Get Rich, Think Like a Billionaire, Trump 101, Why We Want You to be Rich, Think Big, Never Give Up and Think Like a Champion. He and NBC Television are partners in the ownership and broadcast rights for the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA Pageants. In 2004, Trump produced and starred in the reality show, The Apprentice, which quickly became a #1 on rated show. He has also had a successful radio program on Clear Channel for several years.

Full Profile

    Chairman and President, The Trump Organization, and Star of The Apprentice, NBC

    Donald J. Trump started his business career in an office he shared with his father, Fred, in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York. He worked with his father for five years, where they were busy making deals together. Trump has stated, “My father was my mentor and I learned a tremendous amount about every aspect of the construction industry from him.” Likewise, Fred C. Trump often stated that “some of my best deals were made by my son, Donald….everything he touches turns to gold.” Trump then entered the very different world of Manhattan real estate.

    In New York City, the Trump signature is synonymous with the most prestigious of addresses. Among them are the world-renowned Fifth Avenue skyscraper, Trump Tower. Luxury residential buildings include Trump World Tower at the United Nations Plaza, Trump Park Avenue at 59th Street and Park Avenue, Trump Place on the Hudson River and Trump Palace. In 1997, Trump International Hotel & Tower opened its doors to the world, a 52-story super luxury hotel and residential building designed by the famed architect Philip Johnson. The property is one of only three in the country to have received a double Mobil Five-Star rating for both the hotel and its restaurant, Jean- Georges. In 2008, the 92-story Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago opened and was touted by Condé Nast Traveler as the “hottest new hotel in North America.” The Trump Hotel Collection has projects going up around the world and met with tremendous success.

    Trump is also known as a world-class golf course developer, with award-winning courses in New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles (Trump National Golf Clubs), Palm Beach (Trump International Golf Club), Canouan Island in the Grenadines and one in development in Aberdeen, Scotland (Trump International Golf Links) as well as Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Trump is an avid golfer and his passion is evident in the spectacular courses he has developed and continues to develop worldwide. His latest acquisitions are Trump National Golf Club/Colts Neck, N.J, and Trump National Golf Club, Washington, D.C. which fronts the Potomac River for three miles.

    As an accomplished and bestselling author, Trump has had numerous best sellers including The Art of the Deal, which is considered a business classic, The Art of the Comeback, The America We Deserve, How To Get Rich, Think Like a Billionaire, Trump 101, Why We Want You To Be Rich, Think Big, Never Give Up and Think Like a Champion.

    In a departure from his real estate acquisitions, Trump and the NBC Television Network are partners in the ownership and broadcast rights for the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA Pageants. In January of 2004, Trump joined forces with Mark Burnett Productions and NBC to produce and star in the television reality show, The Apprentice. The show quickly became #1 on television and is currently in its tenth season. Trump’s production company, Trump Productions, is based in Los Angeles. Trump also had a successful radio program on Clear Channel for several years.

    Trump is the very definition of the American success story. He has continually set new standards of excellence while expanding his interests nationally and internationally. Trump is personally involved in everything that his name represents. This commitment has made him the pre-eminent developer of quality real estate known around the world, and in all his endeavors the Trump gold standard is apparent. He is the archetypal businessman—a deal maker without peer and an ardent philanthropist.

    With a central role in NBC’s The Apprentice, Trump’s star is soaring. In his fifth book (after The Art of the Deal, he offers a cursory glance behind the scenes of the hit reality show, but the bulk of the text consists of business advice ("Be Tenacious"; "Play Golf"; "Be Optimistic, but Always Be Prepared for the Worst") with illustrative details culled from his real estate and media dealings. (The glimpses he presents of his transformation of 40 Wall Street hint at a story that might deserve a more serious book all its own.)

    There are some surprises; at times, the quintessential New Yorker sounds almost like a California New Ager as he recommends up to three hours of quiet reflection a day along with the writings of Carl Jung. But he’s soon back in recognizable form, advising readers to "screw enemies back" and explaining why various people (including former governor Mario Cuomo and talk-show host Joy Behar) are dead to him.

    Trump appears comfortable with himself, and he even makes light of potentially touchy subjects, such as his hair: "My hair is one hundred percent mine. No animals have been harmed in the creation of my hairstyle."

    Why We Want You to Be Rich: Two Men - One Message

    The world is facing many challenges and one of them is financial. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their countries, employers, or families to take care of them. Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki, both successful businessmen, are natural teachers and have joined forces to address these challenges. They believe you cannot solve money problems with money. You can only solve money problems with financial education. Trump and Kiyosaki want to teach you to be rich.

    "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime."

    They each could have written a book on the subject, but they chose instead to write a book together because of their shared passion for education and their desire to bring emphasis to the importance of financial education. In addition they have designated a portion of the profits from each book to be donated to charitable and educational organizations that also support financial education.

    Trump University′s Real Estate 101: Building Wealth With Real Estate

    For safe long-term wealth-building, there′s no better investment than real estate and if anyone is a good example of the power and wealth that real estate can build, it′s Donald Trump. Trump University′s Real Estate 101 combines the talent and knowledge of bestselling real estate author Gary Eldred with the prestige and name recognition of Trump to produce a one-of-a-kind real estate guide for novices and experienced investors alike. As the title implies, this guide is appropriate for investors at any level, but it′s far more than a basic introduction to real estate. It offers a vital understanding of the fundamentals of real estate investing, while also surveying a full range of moneymaking techniques and tactics. It offers fresh ideas for old pros, but also lets beginners explore all the possibilities of real estate and choose the tactics that will work best for them.

    Unlike other real estate guides, Trump University′s Real Estate 101 doesn′t just concentrate on a particular niche-like fixing and flipping or foreclosure investing-nor does it offer a simplistic overview of investing basics. Instead, this guide offers a complete range of wealth-building ideas, helps investors adapt their tactics to different areas or market conditions, and prepares them to earn a lifetime of extra income based on real estate.

    Gary Eldred (Gainesville, FL) is a successful real estate investor who has served on the graduate business faculty at Stanford University and the University of Illinois. He travels around the country delivering real estate seminars and is the bestselling author of Investing in Real Estate, Fourth Edition (0-471-32339-X), The Beginner′s Guide to Real Estate Investing(0-471-64711-X), and 106 Common Mistakes Homebuyers Make (and How to Avoid Them) (0-471-12658-6), all from Wiley.
