In my travels I've met several billionaires; interestingly, two were not yet that successful but later became so; none would remember me, but I certainly remember them. In my first career, I was a geologist, and I met all three billionaires while I was in the oil and gas business. What is interesting to me is that two of them were not yet billionaires when I met them. The first encounter was with Australian businessman Robert Holmes a' Court, whose company Bell Resources had bought the East Coast (Westport, Connecticut) international E&P company called Weeks Petroleum back in 1983. But since Weeks Petroleum was in the middle of buying the public company I worked for, Energy Minerals Corporation (Denver, Colorado), I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Holmes a' Court. In fact, since I was the Chief Geologist at Energy Minerals, and a triple board meeting was scheduled, I was asked to lead a field trip along the edges of the Denver Basin to give the Aussies and the Weeks Petroleum people an introduction to some of the oil and gas plays Energy Minerals was involved with at the time. This turned into quite an affair, with all of us packed on a bus and driving up and down the Front Range, stopping to look at outcrops that told the story of oil in the Denver Basin. I briefly spoke with the big guy on that trip, but later I saw how things worked in his world.
