In 2011, Tim Grittani was a 20-something Midwestern insurance agent who’d just joined the Trading Challenge. He understood the opportunity in penny stocks right away, but didn’t yet have discipline — and he blew up his account. That’s when Grittani dug in, tracking his data to learn from his mistakes. One year later, he made his first million. As of 2022, he’s made over $13.5 million in trading profits!
