Just 29, Dr. Farrah Gray is already a 23-year veteran of the business world. Raised in the impoverished south side of Chicago, Dr. Gray defied the odds and became a millionaire by age 14. He was the youngest person to have an office on Wall Street and the youngest to receive an honorary doctorate. Now, at 29, he is an inspiration to millions and an international bestselling author. Dr. Gray’s books, "Reallionaire," "Get Real Get Rich" and "The Truth Shall Make You Rich," have been translated into Russian, Korean, Indonesian and Vietnamese languages with book sales in Africa, Australia and Europe and in Central and South American countries.
Dr. Gray has also been named as one of the CNN’s African-American First History Makers and as one of the 20 Modern Black History Makers in the 20th anniversary issue of "Upscale" magazine. Chair of the Farrah Gray Foundation and spokesman for the National Coalition for Homeless, as well as the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, he has been invited to the White House eight times with President Clinton, President Bush and most recently, with President Barack Obama.
He was also featured as one of the Dream Team Financial Experts for “O” (Oprah Winfrey's magazine) in the March 2008 issue. He is also a syndicated columnist with the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) federation of 200 weekly newspapers, which reaches more than 15 million readers. As an AOL Money Coach, Dr. Gray gives advice to millions of AOL subscribers daily on leadership, personal development, diversity, strategic planning, creativity, business development and financial management.
