Oliver McCann started his career in many roles – dishwasher, barman, and a string of other low paid jobs – until he trained in Buddhism. He found a new mindset for life and returned to the marketplace to work his way into private equity. He is now an investor with a portfolio of properties and property businesses spanning 76 countries. He is also a passionate art collector as well as a devoted and private family man.
Oliver McCann, author of The 1% Mindset series of self-help books, analyses the immigration crisis currently unfolding as thousands of immigrants attempt to enter Britain via the Channel Tunnel. Both the political left and political right are missing a trick, he says. By setting up internment camps in Kent, immigrants can be a resourceful workforce on low pay rather than a drain on the taxpayer.
Why is it that people give up on their self-help? Oliver McCann shows how spiritual quests often miss out a necessary tough-mindedness. He shows how ethics limit our imagination for cruelty right at the moment when economic austerity demands it. He draws on Friedrich Nietzsche to explain how the noble spirited can resume their self-help and create new values for themselves and the world.
