In the interview published by CEOCFO Magazine, Lynn Fosse takes the reader through Greg Secker’s approach to trading, learning to trade, and philanthropy.
Greg Secker believes in the power of knowledge. He believes in the power of self-education and life-changing tools. He created his product, Learn to Trade, in order to teach people how to gain financial freedom through trading in the stock market. But he believes money isn’t everything. It’s the freedom that money gives that’s important, the ability to make choices. He also wanted to give people their time back, to empower them through their ability to generate a greater income.
He has written several books. His first is a step-by-step guide called “Financial Freedom” that teaches readers how to use two trading strategies for immediate income. He is also currently working on a book about the benefits of integrating business and philanthropy.
However, the journey to financial freedom began, oddly enough in the food and sciences school at the University of Nottingham. It was there that he learned to code as he built computers and sold them. Learning to code opened the door to the financial world when he began speaking to a representative of Thomas Cook Financial Services. He landed a job as a coder for the Virtual Trading Desk. As he was coding, he also picked up valuable information from the traders to integrate it into the computer program. Eventually he began trading himself, making incredible gains in under a year. Encouraged by success he was able to make a decent amount and retire.
Retirement didn’t last long however. Instead he created Learn to Trade and a company that creates seminars to inspire people to gain financial freedom in a variety of countries.
Greg Secker is the founder of The Greg Secker Foundation which has the product Learn to Trade. Learn to trade was created as to train people in how to trade and has expanded to South Africa, Australia, and the Philippines. It has become known as a leader in the Forex trading system which allows people to discover opportunities for profit.
He also created Global Success Summits, a company dedicated to creating international seminars with leaders and successful speakers. Greg Secker is also a philanthropist. He created a non-profit organization to improve quality of life and to improve education in partnership with youth programs. He also began a project to build 100 permanent homes for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda.
