Dallas-based SUCCESS Magazine unveiled its magazine redesign with its October 2015 issue already on the newsstands. This month, readers can swim with the big fish as six renowned Sharks, Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Griener and Robert Herjavec, from ABC’s Shark Tank grace the magazine cover.  SUCCESS takes their readers inside the minds of the celebrity investors who offer advice on how to overcome obstacles on your path to greatness and provide a guide to learn how to survive the treacherous waters of success.

“I’ve had my best success on the heels of rejection”, says Barbara Corcoran to SUCCESS magazine, and how fitting is that for the successful Billionaire Real Estate Mogul who has definitely seen failure but has been a regular participate on Shark Tank since its premier show on August 9, 2009.

The Sharks will become a recurring feature on the magazine’s monthly audio CD beginning in October as they form a partnership with the successful business magazine. They will write a monthly column that showcases the Shark Tank businesses in which they have invested.   What happens after the startup leaves the show and the Sharks make their investments? The October issue offers readers “Swimming Lessons,” updates on several of the most popular Shark Tank businesses and success stories. Learn the key lessons they shared with their companies that helped them go from barely scraping by to becoming multimillion-dollar business operations.

With this exclusive SUCCESS content, the Sharks give readers insight and key lessons from their entrepreneurial experiences, revealing what is possible when they apply their passions, imaginations and efforts.

“Money is never the answer to the problem-it’s the byproduct of finding a solution”, says Daymond John in the interview with SUCCESS magazine for their October 2015 cover story

Sharks Reveal the Surprising Upside to Obstacles

In this issue three Sharks reveal how they overcame having dyslexia and converted what could be seen as a weakness into a strength for business.  Read about a study by Julie Logan of Cass Business School in London and MIT that uncovers findings as to why dyslexia is far more common among entrepreneurs—an estimated 35% of all U.S. entrepreneurs— than the rest of the general public. The surprising study shows these Sharks are not alone in their endeavor to turn a learning impediment into an asset.

“You get a lot of chances in life. Even if you fail in one, you’ve got to keep going”, philosophical words from the “Shark with retractable teeth”, and this writers favorite of all these tough business predators, Robert Herjavec, tells SUCCESS magazine.
