THE INSIGHT OF RAGS TO RICHES | ROMAN ABRAMOVICH



Ever thought why Hotels and Resorts have Concierge Services in the Lobby? Today we are going to read about a man and would try to dig into his life and his journey from Rags to Riches.

"The goal is to win. It's not about making money. I have many much less risky ways of making money than this (buying Chelsea football club). I don't want to throw my money away, but it's really about having fun and that means success and trophies." ~ Roman Abramovich

Abramovich is the largest shareholder of Evraz, Russia's second-biggest steelmaker. He owns stakes in Norilsk Nickel, the world's largest producer of refined nickel, and London's Chelsea Football Club. He built his fortune from dividends and sales of privatized assets acquired from the former Soviet Union, including Sibneft and Aeroflot.

'Shy would be a word to describe him.' There have been many others: ruthless, generous, audacious, calculating, visionary. But shy? A strange adjective to describe one of the world's richest and most powerful men - the Russian oligarch who dared to seize English football by the throat.

Then again, no one can quite be sure what to expect on meeting Abramovich for the first time. So little is known of his past, or of his views on business, politics or sport, that guesswork and speculation have fleshed out the man.

Like his fellow billionaire Bill Gates, Abramovich is unexpectedly slight. His recent visit to a clinic in Austria was not, as reported, to cope with stress but to shed a couple of kilos in weight. He has receding brown hair, his customary designer stubble and azure-blue eyes. More comfortable in jumpers and jeans, today he is wearing a dark grey suit with thin pinstripes, his blue shirt open at the collar and tieless. Despite his estimated wealth of £10.8bn, the second highest personal fortune in Britain, he sports a chunky Eighties-style digital watch. It doesn't look expensive.

There are so many of us who would keep on thinking about the kind of life he must be spending. But just think about the kind of discipline he must be having in his life, so that he can manage so much of things at once. Let me share a secret with you about how these visionary personalities usually get to work on multiple3 things at once.

They are often surrounded by people and organization that are ready to assist them under whatsoever conditions and even if the deadlines are unrealistic. Now getting such team members are rare but how about hiring a team that does something like this for you. Here is my answer to the first line of this article and that is a Concierge Service. Hotels have concierge services because mostly the kind of consumer that opts for a five star hotel is often having concierge services at their home and offices, but why? Is it a luxury?

A concierge will offer you services even in the middle of night. It lets you work, and let you not worry about the unproductive tasks. Running errands? Making bookings, hunting for the best offers and the last minute meetings along with the client pickups from the airport and hotels. A man like Abramovich would never spend his time in such things and hence it is advised to every man and women on this planet that one should be utilizing time very effectively. One should know where to invest time, and where not to. Organize well, with Premiere Concierge.
