Tell us about yourself?
I was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio where I ended up attending Ohio University on a baseball scholarship. After that, I got into educating individual traders on investing in the Foreign Exchange, Stock/Options, Crypto markets. I love learning about the different investment avenues out there, and I seek to learn from others who have had success. I am very into maintaining physical and mental health.
What makes you different than other professionals in your field?
I focus on how to be very time efficient. That allows my customers to focus on their everyday lives, with all the things that go on from health, kids, work, etc. I believe that time is very important to everyone and I want to make sure that I give my customers peace of mind that one of if not the biggest investment in their lives is in great hands with my team and me.
What was the most important part of your professional journey?
Learn to write and plan things out. It has taught me to understand how to get to a destination a lot easier. Also, when you get derailed (because you will always have challenges), at least you have a road map on how to get back on track. When we fail to plan we indeed plan to fail. I think that comes in all aspects from what thoughts you have, to tasks needed to complete, to goals that need to be achieved. I believe accountability nowadays is something that I notice is lacking when my life starts to get chaotic.
What are the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made?
The best purchases would be investments in myself. From the food I eat, to the books I read, to the investments I make. I think the transition of goal setting allowed me to realize that the bad purchases that I was making on material things were no longer needed to make myself feel good, and I had to look internally for that.
What takes up too much of your time?
When I plan, nothing takes up too much of my time. When I don’t plan then everything feels like it takes too much time. It’s the stress we create on ourselves that gets us down the most.
What three pieces of advice would you give to college students/new startup business owners who want to become entrepreneurs?
- Take care of your health. Watch what you eat because it will affect how you think and move.
- Don’t live for anyone else’s dream.
- Be humble; this life can take turns quickly. Just because things are good now doesn’t mean that they can’t change on you. Vice versa, if you have challenges now and they change, remember how you felt being down.
