I grew up in a small steel town outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. When it was time for me to start work, I busted my butt as a forklift operator at my local Home Depot for 60 hours a week.
It would have been all too easy to spend the rest of my life on someone else's terms, on someone else's time, and to pad someone else's bank account.
But I wanted to get out. I wanted to take control, to have something more.
So… I taught myself how to trade. I ran away with it.
By the time the 1990s rolled around, I'd co-founded one of the world's leading financial education companies; I helped more than 300,000 people master the art and science of trading.
A few years later, I cashed in and sold my company to some Wall Street fat cats. But I wasn't done teaching people how they could build wealth – wasn't done by a long shot.
