Having grown up on a farm and raised by his grandmother among neighbours with similar lifestyles, he now found himself in a much poorer economic class than his neighbours. Herjavec has described a seminal memory of his, when he came home one day to complain to his mother that his classmates were making fun of him. His father who used to walk to work to save money on bus fare, came home, and when he heard what his son described, instructed his son never to complain, which became a guiding principle in Herjavec's life, one which he says sparked his sense of perseverance. As a result, Herjavec swore his family would never be taken advantage of again.
