American businessman, founder and chairman of Forever Living Products.
... has dedicated much of his life to helping people get what they want. For more than 40 years (2021), he has overseen and guided the company with a steady hand. After graduating from Arizona State University with a degree in business, he started companies around the world.
Rex was CEO of the Forever Group. He had to have an understanding of direct sales, agriculture and processing, real estate, and recreation, as well as the ability to support charitable organizations.
He and his wife had three children and now have 12 grandchildren. He has achieved significant success in a number of areas, one of the most notable of which is the award he received for his work to save rainforests in the southwestern US.
When Rex was working as a missionary in the Samoan Islands, on the South Pacific coast, the writings of Robert Louis Stevenson, who spent the last years of his life there, captured his imagination. He developed such a deep respect for the Samoan people and their land that decades later he established the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum and the Heritage Foundation, whose mission is to restore Stevenson's 1890s home in Apia, Samoa.
Today, the museum is a top attraction for tourists, local visitors and school children.

He has achieved outstanding results and has received high honors for his exceptional business success, contributions and dedication to the university.
This is how Rex described himself:
A hard-working, intelligent, dedicated man who has achieved everything on his own. He loves people, especially product marketers. Success, I believe, is a willingness to dream, to work hard, to constantly strive to do good and serve, to build a team, and to have no doubts."
Three of his many famous sayings are quoted below. These were perhaps the most important.
Do more than others say is necessary, be bolder than others say is safe, dream bigger than others say is reasonable, and expect more than others say is possible!
