My Controversial Maxim Video And How To Short Sell Penny Stocks

Yesterday, I was featured in this Maxim Magazine article and, although it’s controversial, I have fulfilled my childhood dream of finally being in that legendary publication!

I’m kidding about it being a childhood dream of mine — that was to drive a Lamborghini like this and/or a Ferrari like this and now I’ve spent a little over $500,000 buying them both and so they sit in my driveway: Continue reading

5 Lessons From My Steve Harvey Show Interview

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the video from the appearance I made on the Steve Harvey show, along with my students Michael, who’s now up to $1.6 million in trading profits thanks to my teachings, and Ivan, who has made a solid six figures, watch it here now. I’m honored to have been invited to appear, and I’m humbled to think that the clip Steve showed of my home and my lifestyle in LA might inspire others to experience the kind of success Michael, Ivan and I – along with plenty of other Millionaire Challenge students – have experienced.

My Larry King Interview (Amazing 25-Minute Video)


What an INCREDIBLE honor it was to be interviewed by the legend himself, Larry King…I hope you enjoy the video below and come away with a better sense of who I am and my goal in life…to create more millionaire trading challenge students and get more people changing their lives/growing their account exponentially instead of the standard thought that 20%/year is best case scenario.

Larry: My guest is Timothy Sykes, the multimillionaire stock trader and entrepreneur. Timothy invested his $12,000 Bar Mitzvah money, which is about $11,500 more than I got, in penny stocks, making his first million in his college dorm. In addition to coaching students online and in seminars, his high-roller lifestyle on social media has attracted hundreds of thousands of followers.

12 Free Educational Videos To Celebrate Memorial Day

I always celebrate Memorial Day as you can see in blog posts like these “How To Truly Celebrate Memorial Day & Enjoy Our Freedom (Also Links To My 30 Best Video Lessons)” and “10 Lessons To Truly Honor Memorial Day” since we are so fortunate to live in a world where the poorest person can rise up to become the richest, most powerful and influential person due to their own hard work and ambition all because our brave servicemen and service women have been willing to devote their lives to afford us our freedom. We don’t think about this enough and that’s sad.

All those who serve our great country should be congratulated far more often and I’m proud to teach hundreds of you guys as trading challenge students since you are severely underpaid for your efforts and the risks that you take! Continue reading

My Reaction To My New Businessweek Feature Article

Yesterday, Businessweek featured me in a longggggg article titled “How to Make Millions by Marketing Yourself as a ‘Douche Bag’” that’s apparently a milestone of sorts since this classy publication has NEVER used the word douchebag in an article title before…seriously.

As you watch the video below (or HERE) outlining my reaction to this article, you’ll see I disagree with a lot of what’s said, but then again it’s not that surprising given the world’s take on penny stocks and me, the rich guy who goes around telling everyone how great it is to trade these penny stocks and to embrace/learn to profit from the predictable manipulation that exists (ie short selling pump & dumps or even buying sketchy companies that are in play and riding the momentum higher for quick profits.

I think the article’s best/most accurate passage is here: Continue reading
