"Adversity is your greatest competitive advantage," reads a quote on Vinh's website.
While he's now earning up to $15,000 an hour on the global speakers circuit, it could've been very different.
Vinh's family escaped the Viet Cong on treacherous waters and arrived in Australia as Vietnamese refugees.
The family struggled to make ends meet in the Northern suburbs of Adelaide, selling whatever they could to survive.
After hearing his mum pleading for money to put him through school, Vinh began looking for ways to make fast money. He bought and sold goods to school mates, and paid bullies to keep debtors in check.
Against the odds, he got within six months of completing an accounting degree before a "life saving" conversation with a firm partner led to Vinh dropping out to pursue magic.
That conversation set Vinh on a path to greatness, as a magician, online business owner and keynote speaker sought after worldwide.
This is a fascinating and inspirational story with important insights for personal development, business, performance and life.
