Jason, what’s an interestingly weird fact about yourself?
I’m very ticklish.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
I started when I got back from working overseas out of the marines, but realized it’s not what I wanted to do.
Became a confident trader and trainer in it.
Worked as a sniper, hostage rescue, etc. did it all.
No doubt the training from the military helped improve my skill set, especially with risk taking and delayed gratification.
How did you become a successful trader?
Had a huge failure at the beginning of trading, spent 10’s of thousands in trainings and educations but kept plugging away at it.
Seeked out mentorship from someone very successful in the market.
I loves the trading side the most.
