Roger Hamilton | World Wide Wealth ...
Roger and the XL Group are driven by the concept of World Wide Wealth: Empowering social enterprise and global change by increasing our collective ability to create and contribute wealth.
Born in Hong Kong and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge University, he became an entrepreneur soon after completing his studies, experiencing many failures before achieving success. He now owns and runs businesses in publishing, property, financing, franchising, event management, resort management, training, coaching, technology, membership, retail and education. For the last seven years he has traveled the world, conducting events and workshops to over 500,000 entrepreneurs in 18 countries.
Roger believes that we learn from our mistakes, and he has made plenty of them. He has made and lost millions on numerous occasions. In fact, he calculates that he lost over $130 million in mistakes in the first ten years of his entrepreneurial career. He views this education as being a lot more valuable (and expensive) than his university education, and he is now reaping the rewards from it.
He became a self-made millionaire in his late 20s and achieved financial freedom by the age of 30. He has lived in the UK, US and moved to Singapore to launch his first Asian business during the 1997 Asian Crisis. He now specialises in building new businesses in Asia as a serial entrepreneur, so speaks from experience in his wealth consulting. Roger currently lives with his family on the Indonesian island of Bali.
