About Robert
Robert Shemin has built a life of extraordinary wealth, both material and personal, by continually beating the odds. Once considered "least likely to succeed" due to his severe learning disabilities and other seemingly insurmountable odds, he has become one of the most sought-after lecturers in the country.

A millionaire by age 32, Robert is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author with 16 titles to his name, including blockbusters "How Come That Idiot’s Rich and I’m Not" and 7 S.E.C.R.E.T.S of the Money Masters."

An Emory University Doctor of Law and Master of Business Administration, he is considered one of the world’s savviest real estate and financial market forecasters. To date he has been involved in over 1,000 real-estate transactions totaling over 100 million dollars.

As an internationally acclaimed wealth-creation expert, Robert has helped thousands of people with no investment experience or funding achieve total financial freedom. He has traversed the globe teaching the secrets of his success at sold-out events and his business-coaching clients include some of the most recognizable individuals and enterprises in the world.

For Robert, however, true wealth cannot be measured in numbers. He derives his greatest satisfaction from the work he has done to assist people in need. He has been a major donor to charitable organizations helping the less fortunate, including supporting efforts to aid the homeless and treat patients in need of critical eye operations overseas. He helped found and operate a specialized school that mentors at-risk teens and college-age youth.
In The News
Robert has been interviewed and quoted on all topics of finance ranging from real estate to branding, negotiating, entrepreneurship and investment strategy in over 300 publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, USA Today, the New York Times, the New York Post and TIME Magazine.

He is a frequent guest on national radio and television, including CNN, Fox News, CNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, National Public Radio and the BBC. He has also been featured in countless regional and local television shows and publications.
Giving Back
The journey to wealth has taught Robert many lessons. Chief among them is that the freedom and power that money gives you comes with great responsibility. Since early in his career he has endeavored to dedicate major resources towards helping those who are considered “hopeless,” much as he once was.
Brazos Abiertos Foundation
He is a major donor to the Brazos Abiertos (Open Arms) Foundation in Colombia. This Christian organization rescues street children and gives them the opportunity to develop healthy, productive lives by means of prevention, education and re-socialization.
