Simon Chua became a multi-millionaire through his petrochemical trading business in Singapore. He later sold the company for a huge sum in 2010. Ironically - the buying company was the first company he ever worked for.

When I first met Simon, I saw him speaking at my church and I only knew him as Simon the meek, nice pastor.

Little did I know that this guy just kills it in the board-room and is one of the most intense people I have ever met, The guy runs on lithium. He’s 52 years old but he’s more physically fit than I am. We recently played a game of basketball in the pouring rain and the man went hard.

Simon is now an investor and pastor based in Singapore. He is also a serial giver and when he gives - the amounts are huge.
