It's easy to be sexy at the age of 26, but what makes Farrah Gray extra attractive is the stack of accomplishments he has achieved at such a young age.

Gray is already a 20-year veteran of the business world. He began his entrepreneurial, personal and civic development at six years old selling home-made body lotion and his own hand-painted rocks as book-ends door-to-door.

Raised in the impoverished south side of Chicago, 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 26, he is an inspiration to millions and an international bestselling author. Gray’s books, "Reallionaire," "Get Real Get Rich" and "The Truth Shall Make You Rich," have been translated into Russian, German, French, Polish, Korean, Indonesian and Vietnamese languages with book sales in Africa, Australia and Europe and in Central and South American countries.

Gray is the CEO of Farrah Gray Publishing (FGP) which is distributed by HCI Books, which published the world famous #1 New York Times, USA Today and Guinness Book of World Records; best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Chicken Soup for the Soul has sold more than 112 million copies, with titles translated into more than 40 languages and total retail sales of Chicken Soup for the Soul branded merchandise have topped $1.3 billion.

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 has also been featured as one of the Dream Team Financial Experts for “O” (Oprah Winfrey's magazine). 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.

Gray's books and his journey to succeed against the odds have become required reading and part of classroom study from elementary school to entrepreneurship departments on college and university campuses such as Harvard University and Princeton.
