In America, anything is possible. (All naysayers should consider the life of Farrah Gray.)
At the age of 14, Farrah Gray became a self-made millionaire, despite being raised in the impoverished South Side of Chicago. And in less than a decade, his entrepreneurial talents have allowed him to oversee a $30 million asset management company, become a syndicated columnist with the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), publish two best-selling books and receive an Honorary Doctorate degree of Humane Letters from Allen University.
At the age of 21, Farrah Gray was named as one of the most influential Black men in America by the National Urban League’s Urban Influence Magazine. And in March 2008, after a decade of entrepreneurial success, Farrah Gray was featured as a member of “O” – The Oprah Magazine‘s Dream Team of Financial Experts.
If Farrah Gray can succeed, why can’t we?
On December 27, 2007, Farrah Gray published his second book, Get Real, Get Rich: Conquer the 7 Lies Blocking You from Success, under the Dutton imprint. Upon review of Get Real, Get Rich, Farrah Gray managed to squeeze some time out of his busy schedule and settle down for an interview with Clayton Perry — reflecting on race, “lie-abilities,” and the keys to success.
