Conquering All Odds, Forest Hamilton Has Become A Leader in Sales, Service, and Inspiration
Beaumont, TX – December 13, 2011 – When Forest Hamilton was born into his father’s hands in a small house in the mountains of Washington State, no one could have guessed the impact he would have on the world around him.
Raised without running water or electricity into his teens, Hamilton was taught from an early age to persevere no matter what the circumstances. As a child, Forest visited his family in Texas every summer. “My uncle Lester was a true inspiration to me. He taught me that everything in life has a process. If you follow a failure process you will consistently get failure. If you follow a success process you will consistently have success. The only question is, how big can you dream?”
In 1999, Lester Henderson was diagnosed with terminal cancer and asked his nephew to move in with the family and work at his company, Universal Coin and Bullion. The company has since become one of the world’s largest gold, silver, and rare coin firms, winning the coveted NLG Investment Book of the Year award an unprecedented four times. Universal Coin and Bullion specializes in United States investment grade gold coins and also deals in the other precious metals groups while leading the field in consumer protection advocacy. “Our goal is to help people protect, diversify and grow their assets using our award winning strategies,” said Hamilton.
Within a year Hamilton was the top sales associate at the firm and then went on to become a manager three years later. In the past 13 years, he has become an integral part of nearly every department while assisting in the management of over 180,000 happy clients. He is now a sought-after speaker and co-author of the best-selling book “Pushing To The Front” with Brian Tracy. He was recently awarded the 2011 Thought Leader of the Year Award by the National Academy of Best-Selling Authors in Hollywood, California. Hamilton attributes his successes to his passion for serving his clients more than anything else. “I love my work because I love my clients and I truly believe in what I do,” explained Hamilton.
