Jim Rogers Discusses How He Was Able to Make His Fortune By Age 40

May 20, 2013 | About:

Jim Rogers grew up poor and he did not like it. This provided him with the focus that drove him to try and achieve complete financial freedom as quickly as possible.

When you do what you love and spend all of your time and focus on it great success is possible.

What set Rogers apart (according to him) from other investors is that he refused to follow the crowd. He focused on independent thinking.

One of his greatest investments was spotting the beginning of the bull market in commodities in 1998. He still doesn't think people understand the commodities boom.

In the extended interview below Jim discusses investing, what has made him successful and why others fail.
