In 2007, along with my hubby Jim Rogers, I left New York City behind for Singapore, since we saw Asia as the future – and we still believe this! Today, as a patron, board member, and fundraiser for numerous organisations, including United Women Singapore, Asian Civilizations Museum, and Singapore Dance Theatre, I enthusiastically support local fashion/design/jewelry/art. A graduate gemologist through the Gemological Institute of America, I’m also a former columnist for The Straits Times, and creator and host of “Pass the Power with Paige Parker” podcast, which shares Conversations of Hope with today’s thought-leaders.
At the turn of the millennium, with Jim – the ultimate adventurer – I spent three years driving around the world, gaining a Guinness World Record. This led to my best-selling memoir Don’t Call Me Mrs. Rogers, detailing the epic circumnavigation, as well as my own personal evolution, while shining light on the courageous, resourceful women I met from Azerbaijan to Zimbabwe. Today, I am a member of both the Circumnavigator’s Club and The Explorers Club.
As a Nas Academy Metapurse Crypto Creator Fellow, I adore creating empowering content on Instagram and TikTok (@iampaigeparker).
Jim and I are proud parents to daughters Bee and Hilton. A self-proclaimed Tame Tiger mom, I am an advocate for parents to encourage on their children’s strengths, not on everything! I welcome messages and comments, because I’m inspired by you.
Since I’ve been curious about successful people all my life, I started the podcast to offer Conversations of Hope with today’s thought-leaders. Join as I chat with accomplished folks, learn a bit of their back stories, how to live life fully and with passion, both professionally and personally, and gain useful nuggets of wisdom, as together, we Pass the Power on to you.
At the turn of the millennium, American-born Paige Parker and investment guru Jim Rogers spend three years—1,101 days to be exact—driving over six continents in their “sunburst yellow” coupe and trailer, ultimately setting a Guinness World Record. During the epic journey, Paige’s world view is turned upside down, eventually leading her and her family to their ideal home in Singapore.
On the road trip, she meets women from every walk of life, inspiring monks in China, boy soldiers in Angola and oppressive patriarchy in too many countries, yet she walks away with a profound faith in humankind. She now wants to pass the lessons from the road to her two daughters, to women everywhere and to all intrepid travelers.
Fitness and physical health became top-of-mind for many as Covid-19 enveloped the world.
I am grateful to have a small voice, which I use to promote causes important to me, and I hope to you.
