International investor, Chairman, co-Founder

Graeme Carling is a true business success story. From humble upbringings with little interest in the traditional education system offered by school, Graeme found himself in the World of work from an early age. Those early experiences ignited a spark in Graeme who would go on to work his way into well-paid managerial positions, but it was never enough.

Graeme always wanted to work for himself, and in spite of him initial three failed forays into business ownership, he was always destined for entrepreneurialism. With three failed businesses under his belt, Graeme found himself at a pretty low ebb, licking his wounds. It was at this time Graeme happened to catch the end of an Oprah Winfrey show with Rich Dad Poor Dad author, Robert Kiyosaki, which led to him committing to his own financial education. He even roped in his new girlfriend (and eventual wife) Leanne, by gifting her a copy of Kim Kiyosaki’s book, Rich Woman.

After a while, with their first child together on the way, Graeme and Leanne quit their jobs, on the same day, with modest savings in the bank to survive for the next six months, and set about building their empire together.

Graeme and Leanne would spend the next 15 years, working, learning, and travelling together, as they built a business portfolio spanning multiple sectors and international locations, worth millions of pounds. With vision, commitment, and relentless effort, they’ve taken their place amongst the entrepreneurial success stories, though to them…it was never in doubt.
