The Success Story of Mr Roman

The main owner of Millhouse LLC (a private investment company) and Chelsea Football Club (an English Premier League football team) is beyond words a very successful business man. It can’t be over-emphasized that he has successfully carved a niche for himself when it comes to making it big in the business sphere around the world.

Born on the 24th of October, 1966, Roman Arkadyevich Abramovich started his life in Saratov, Russian SFSR, USSR with the zeal to be successful. According to Forbes, he now has an estimated net worth of $9.1 billion as of this very year 2015 making him one of the richest persons in the world. If we want to take time out and convert this to Nigerian currency, don’t you think we will be getting too busy? I’ll just implore us to read further about this successful entrepreneur.

Abramovich, a Russian businessman, investor and a politician started his multi-billion-dollar business during his army service. He has worked as a street trader and also as a mechanic at a local factory. He even ventured into agriculture (pig farms) at a time. He currently leads an ostentatious lifestyle much like a modern-day Roman emperor. The Russian oligarch is widely regarded as the owner of the famous Football club “Chelsea,” however Chelsea is just a tip of the iceberg. This means He is into many other investments. Besides real estate and sports, Abramovich is known for his taste for all the finer things in life. He is an avid collector, whose collections vary from modern art to sport cars.

His wealth encompasses a very wide range of investments among which are several properties that are entirely bigger than Chelsea Football club as a whole. Interesting thing is that, they are in different parts of the world including Russia, Britain and France.

Mr Abramovich owns one of the most successful football club in English Premier League, “Chelsea”, which he bought for $233 million in 2003. His passion for football and high profile club transfers has already made him very famous in European club football. He is also associated with Russian national team and PFC CSKA Moscow.

He has private islands, private jets and super-yachts with submarines. It would interest you to know that his guests are requested to come without any luggage, for he has customized each room on his yacht for each of his close friends and family! Yes! He is that successful. Besides, he is known as a major force in European football due to his association with Chelsea, PFC CSKA Moscow, Russian National team, it is also reported that his son Arkady is now eyeing “FC Copenhagen” a top Danish football club and domestic league champion. For someone who leads the pack with his extravagant lifestyle, Abramovich is equally paranoid about his security. His cars and yachts all are designed with high-security features, including bulletproof glasses and shields to deter hungry shutterbugs.

Abramovich became the first owner of a private Airbus A340, largest personal plane ever built. His plane is reported to have a gym, turkish bath, conference rooms, jacuzzi, bar and a restaurant.

Eclipse, his proud possession, and also the world’s largest yacht, even has a missile defense system. With an entourage of bodyguards, Abramovich is known as one of the most secured persons on earth. Like many other Russian oligarchs, he also lives an expat life in London.

Mr. Abramovich is a true style icon and his choices of cars prove it. He has several flagship models of Mercedes which goes with his luxurious personality. Two best customized models from his collection are Maybach 62 and a CLK GTR in which he is often spotted. Mercedes is Roman Abramovich’s favorite brand.

Abramovich is world’s greatest spender on luxury yachts, and had been linked to many high profile yachts in past. He currently owns 5 super yachts, and has given them a nickname, “Abramovich’s Navy.

ARTnews, the world’s oldest fine arts magazine, has named Roman Abramovich as one of the world’s top 10 art collectors based on intelligence gathered from auction houses, art dealers, curators and other experts. He has purchased a whole island for $400 million in St. Petersburg, Russia just to maintain his vast art collection. Although mystery shrouds over what really composes his art collection, he is known to be one of the most lavish spenders when it comes to collecting masterpieces. His collection boasts of rare creations of artists like Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon and others.

Speaking of business, Abramovich plans to transform the 18th century warehouses situated on the New Holland Island into a cultural and commercial centre. This is definitely a strategy to make more money even with his already huge success story. This speaks of his non-readiness to retire at the current stage of his wealth. Entrepreneurial spirit never dies in a true entrepreneur! One or two lessons can be learnt from this great business leader. It is not just about his wide range of wealth, rather, it is about his thirst for more even when challenges and down-times of business set in. Dare to achieve more even when you feel you have arrived!
