Larry Winget's Speech Descriptions

    The Truth Be Told
    This is Larry′s most popular keynote address and is based on Winget′s two bestsellers, Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get A Life and It′s Called Work For A Reason. In it, Larry teaches universal principles that work for anyone, in any business, at any time. From sales to customer service, to teamwork and leadership, Winget attacks traditional business wisdom and offers simple truths in his caustic, thought-provoking, and hilarious style.

    According to Bookpage, "his no-holds barred approach to business is refreshing, and his clear sense of personal integrity is a much-needed refresher in today′s business climate." He teaches that business improves when the people in the business improve and that everything in life gets better when we get better and nothing gets better until we get better. His style is confrontational and he won′t let you off the hook.

    He leaves you nowhere to turn but to yourself. Winget′s approach remains that WORK is the key to success: not talking about work, not having meetings about work, not writing reports about work, but WORK.

    How To STOP Getting By and START Getting Ahead
    Larry has become a financial guru to many people because of his work on Big Spender, his appearances on CNBC′s The Millionaire Inside, The Today Show, Fox News and more. This dynamic keynote is based on Larry′s #1 Bestseller, You′re Broke Because You Want To Be. In this keynote, Larry teaches that your financial condition is the result of your choices.

    Larry covers how to set priorities for your life and that life is like a crime novel: if you want to find the culprit, follow the money. He tells his personal story of how he went from dirt poor to rich to bankrupt to multi-millionaire. He ties wealth building and getting out of debt to good old-fashioned hard work. He will also teach you how to develop a philosophy of money that can carry you through any situation.

    If desired, Larry can also give tactics on how to get out of debt and how to change your lifestyle so you will have more money. While a serious subject, the speech is also hilarious and Larry tells great stories of his time shooting his television series, Big Spender for A&E and relates the stories of many of the encounters he has had. This speech is also the information that will covered in Larry′s new television special that he will soon be recording and this is the presentation that Larry has presented on stage at Robert and Kim Kiyosaki′s Rich Dad event.

    • “Stress comes from knowing what is right and doing what is wrong.”
    • “When people say, ′Let me be honest with you,′ it means in the past, they haven′t been.”

    Shut up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life: A Kick-Butt Approach to a Better Life

    This is not your typical self-help book. You won′t find any motivational platitudes or cute business parables here. This is more of a “get off your butt and get to work” approach that can help you achieve more success, make more money, improve your business, and have more fun.

    Larry Winget doesn′t pull any punches here. He believes that business gets better when businesspeople get better through personal growth. And it works the same way in your personal life-husbands and wives improve each other when they improve themselves, and kids improve when their parents do. In other words, everything in life gets better when you get better, and nothing gets better until you get better.

    This book can make you better, but it will probably tick you off. Winget is direct, caustic, and controversial. You won′t like or agree with everything he has to say. Yet his advice is full of wisdom and truth that can′t easily be argued with.

    Words from Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life that prove that this book is anything but typical:

    “If you don′t have much going wrong in your life, then you don′t have much going on in your life.”

    “When you work, work! When you play, play! Don′t mix the two.”

    “What you think about, talk about, and do something about is what comes about.”

    “When it quits being fun-quit.”

    “Time management is a joke.”

    And that′s just the beginning!

    It′s Called Work for a Reason!: Your Success Is Your Own Damn Fault

    The #1 bestselling author of Shut Up, Stop Whining, & Get a Life reveals the only thing you need to know to succeed in business: YOUR SUCCESS IS YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT!

    Some authors of business books stroke your ego by reinforcing information you already know. Others give you detailed statistical analysis of the economy, or buying trends, encouraging you to get lost in the pages of boredom until you have no idea what the book is even about. Some authors exploit the hottest buzzword and beat it to death, without giving you any real idea how to do what they suggest must be done. Some say that all you have to do is love your job in order to be successful at it. The worst of the lot tell cute little parables through inane dialogues with messages so simple and trite that we should all be insulted.

    In IT′S CALLED WORK FOR A REASON, Larry Winget tells the unvarnished truth about what it takes to be successful:

    • NOT business jargon (Forget branding! Forget thinking outside the box—you′re not in a box!)
    • NOT parables (Who cares who moved your cheese—what cheese?)
    • NOT praise sandwiches (talk about cheese!)

    Just the one key ingredient to success in business: Work!

    Are you frustrated with a lack of results at work? Have you hit a wall? Are you uninspired, stuck in a rut, feeling underappreciated? Well, good news: your success is not up to your boss, your manager, your employees, or the economy. It′s up to YOU. Business is never bad, people are just bad at being in business. If that makes you mad, this book is for you. Larry Winget hacks through the bad advice given in most business books, explaining why:

    • Teamwork doesn′t work
    • We are all stealing from our companies and ourselves
    • Success is simple
    • Results are everything
    • You don′t have to love your job (but it helps!)

    You will be surprised, you will laugh, and you will discover motivation you never knew you had. Let Larry Winget shock you out of your comfort zone, and into a whole new league.
