Larry Winget Speaker Biography

Larry Winget “The Pitbull of Personal Development” and “World's Only Irritational Speaker” is a four-time New York Times/Wall Street Journal bestselling author. He is a member of the International Speaker Hall Of Fame, has starred in his own television series and appeared in national television commercials. Larry Winget is a regular contributor on many news shows on the topics of money, personal success and business.

Larry Winget believes that most of us have made life and business way too complicated, take them way too seriously and need to lighten up, take responsibility and keep it all in perspective. No one does what Larry Winget does from the platform. No one says what he says and no one looks like he looks. Larry Winget is caustic, straight-forward, never minces words, hilarious and offers solid advice for improving your life and your business.

Larry Winget is the best-selling author of Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get A Life: A Kick-Butt Approach to a Better Life, It's Called Work for a Reason: Your Success Is Your Own Damn Fault, You're Broke Because You Want to Be, People are Idiots and I Can Prove It! and No Time for Tact. His books teach universal principles that will work for anyone, in any business, at any time, through humorous stories and anecdotes, while discussing personal accountability and simple, practical plans for anyone in financial trouble to turn their lives around.

Larry Winget starred in his own A&E reality series Big Spender and appeared on CNBC's The Millionaire Inside. Larry was also the star of his own PBS special and a frequent business contributor on MSNBC, FOX News and FOX Business. He has also appeared on The Today Show, Larry King Live, and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. Larry Winget also appeared as himself in a series of popular national Hyundai commercials.

Larry Winget is one of the most sought-after speakers working today. He travels the globe speaking to corporations, associations and organizations about his simple, yet profound approach to life and business. His trademarked style is confrontational, truthful and hilarious

An inductee into the International Speaker Hall Of Fame, Larry Winget astounds, confounds and delights audiences of all types. Edgy, cantankerous, sarcastic, opinionated and hilarious, Larry Winget is a one-of-a kind presenter whom audiences demand time and time again. Without ever mincing words—much as in his writing—Larry Winget delivers the cold, ugly truth in a way that is provocative, interesting, and funny.

Use Larry Winget to present a dynamic convention opening or closing keynote on the topics of personal or business development. Then use him to provide a break-out session for your attendees or employees on the topic of fiscal responsibility.

Larry Winget is the best combination of credible content: bestselling books, award-winning speaking performances and experience from having spoken to nearly 400 of the Fortune 500, in addition to the element of celebrity from his continuous television appearances. Not often do you find someone who can bring solid information delivered in such a refreshing, humorous manner.

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.

Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life

Larry Winget is a philosopher of success who just happens to be hilarious. He teaches universal principles that work for anyone, in any business, at any time, and does it through simple, understandable, easy-to-implement ideas and funny stories. Larry believes that most of us have made life and business way too complicated, take it way too seriously and that we need to lighten up, take responsibility, be more flexible and keep it all in perspective. Larry Winget teaches that business improves when the people in the business improve and that everything in life gets better when we get better. and that nothing gets better until we get better. His style is confrontational and he won't let you off the hook. Larry leaves you nowhere to turn but to yourself. Yet his motive is one of love and service. He sincerely wants everyone to do better, have more and know that they can do more.

It's Called Work for a Reason: Your Success is Your Own Damn Fault

Based on Larry Winget's book of the same name, he takes on every aspect of business. 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." Larry Winget's approach remains that we work for the customer as he focuses on simple principles like taking responsibility and reminds you that "success is your own damn fault." Larry talks about how WORK is the key to success: not talking about work, not having meetings about work, not writing reports about work, but WORK.

You're Broke Because You Want to Be: How to Stop Getting By and Start Getting Ahead

Over 40% of families are feeling the pressure, spending more than they earn, and risking retiring financially dependent on the government, family, or charity. Larry Winget knows—he’s been where you are now. He grew up poor, then made and lost a fortune when a business in which he’d invested went bankrupt. But he worked his way back from rock-bottom to become a multi- millionaire.

Now he gets paid to help people in financial crisis on A&E’s reality series, Big Spender. On the show, he coaches people who have jobs, maybe even high-paying jobs, but are nevertheless in debt or living hand-to-mouth. His blunt take on their situations? They’re broke because they want to be. They all say they want stability, savings, and financial freedom, but their actions too often contradict their words. Larry helps them to see the contradiction, get back on track, and out of debt, step-by-step. He can help you, too.

Whether your aim is to get out of debt, save for a house, or simply stop kidding yourself when it comes to savings (for retirement, for your kids’ college, whatever your goal) Larry encourages you through his bullying yet wise counsel, to make it happen. Larry’s motivating message: If you want to be rich, you can. But first, you have to stop being broke, and start getting ahead. And he’ll walk you through not only the necessary attitude adjustment, but the practical choices and actions that will get you there.
