Kevin O’Leary promotes his book on video… and I promote mine

January 13 2013 by Ellen Roseman

It’s not enough to write a book. You also have to promote it on video, even if you’re not a trained TV performer.

Kobo Books invited me to its Toronto head office to interview Kevin O’Leary about his new book, The Cold Hard Truth about Men, Women and Money.

Our chat is now up on YouTube.

Here’s a photo from the Kobo blog and a description of O’Leary’s tough love approach to personal finance topics.

I recently did a couple of short videos for my book, which are posted at Wiley’s channel on YouTube.

In the first, I talk about why I wrote the book and how customers can fight back.

In the second, I talk about how to save money on your telecom services.

You can see the Toronto Star newsroom behind me. And you can find an excerpt in the Moneyville section.

    Congratulations on your new book, Ellen.

    I just got the Kindle edition and have already picked up practical tips on getting fairer treatment from a bank (Chapter 2). It’s unfortunate that long term customers can’t count on automatically getting the best rates.

    Kevin O’Leary: Is that the bald character with ape brains who’s paid by taxpayers to spread his stupidity on CBC?
