Greg Secker is the founder of Knowledge to Action Group, which holds a number of companies, including Learn to Trade, The Greg Secker Foundation, Capital Index, and Smart Chart Software. All these companies have one thing in common- they offer some form of training and education on trading. Through the education provided, Greg Secker hopes to improve the lives of people in one way or the other. These companies tell you a lot about Secker. He is a master trader, a philanthropist and an international speaker, just to mention a few hats that he wears.
In a recent interview with Inspirey, Greg Secker got the opportunity to narrate how he got into the trading business. He told Inspirey that he got in the business to help people get into the trading market with ease. He had noted that most people, who had no education of financial trading, had so many struggles getting started in trading. Besides, the learning tools available were so expensive. Therefore, he decided to come up with a tool that would help people learn the art of trading at a lower cost.
During the interview, Secker also mentioned how he got into trading. He remembers being in the corporate world and making a decent pay but was never satisfied. Instead, he wanted to be helping people learn how to make money. So, when he was still in the corporate world, he started an online trading platform, Learn to Trade, which he operated from his apartment. Within six months, the platform was paying him as much as he was earning from his corporate employer. And, by reinvesting the money he got from Learn to Trade, he was soon running a profitable business, which enabled him to leave his job at the young age of 27.
He also remembers making so many mistakes when he was starting out. However, every mistake was essential to building his business. It was through his mistakes that webinars and seminars were set up to teach people to avoid the same mistakes that he himself did.
