Wilbert Wynnberg is a Singaporean entrepreneur, bestselling author and founder of Think Act Prosper. His quintessential rags-to-riches success story of sacrifice, hard work, and perseverance, together with his unique and charismatic way of delivering his message to his audience, has allowed Wynnberg to touch the lives of people all over the world, appear on TV, and be featured on news publications such as Forbes, USA Today, Yahoo! Finance, and many more.
However, during his childhood and adolescence, Wynnberg was a vastly different person. He grew up in an abusive, low-income household, and under the influence of his environment and bad company, he walked down the wrong path for many years. He joined a gang in his teens, dropped out of school, became an alcoholic, and was a gambling addict who experienced 5 to 6-figure daily swings at his peak. Fortunately, he was able to pull himself out of his self-professed “degen phase” and put his life back in order. As someone who knows how difficult it is to put themselves back on the right track and commit to it without distraction, Wynnberg has been living with a renewed purpose of helping as many people as he can.
In 2015, Wynnberg committed himself to building a legacy of helping others excel in their business, income, and life, using his own story to inspire and motivate others to pursue their personal excellence and live a life worth being proud of.
Two years later in 2017, Wynnberg survived a near-fatal skydiving accident. It led him to reflect on the regrets he would be leaving behind if he had died then. This motivated him to take action on the things he had been wanting to do but had been putting off, such as writing and publishing his own book. Months later, his first book, Think Act Prosper was published. In the same year, he obtained his United States Parachute Association (USPA) ‘A’ license, and successfully completed over 50 solo jumps. Subsequently, Think Act Prosper expanded to become a movement, comprising an annual business conference and magazine featuring the world’s best thought leaders and business experts like Brian Tracy, Kerri Kasem, Evan Carmichael, Elena Cardone, David Meltzer, Kim Perell, and many more.
A huge advocate of education, Wynnberg has been active in helping children living in Southeast Asian countries. To lead by example, he went on to pursue an MBA degree at Murdoch University in 2019, which he completed a year later.
