‘Tis the Season to Turn Profits Into Passion
The number of books touting the idea of turning your passion into profits grows by the day. Visit the business section of your local bookstore and you’ll find at least one.
Here’s the pitch … “Find your passion, become an expert, and sell what you know to others.”
Don’t take this the wrong way. That’s how I built my trading education business. But most people will never do it. No matter what anyone says, it’s not easy to build a business.
Turn the Tables on Passion to Profits
I have a different take. One that I hope you’ll consider because it’s literally changing the world. Here it is…
Become a self-sufficient, profitable trader. Then take some of your profits and use them to make a difference.
I’m not saying forget ‘passion to profits.’ But you have an opportunity sitting right in front of you. Stoke your passion for trading. As you become more successful, give back. Turn the tables and turn profits into passion. It’s truly life-changing.
Why Charity Is My Passion
I love charity and giving back! If somebody had told me about it earlier, I wouldn’t have wasted years with the wrong priorities.
Some of us traders make so much money. Sadly, many don’t give back.
For me, it’s my passion. I’ll never stop trying to get more people involved. The more people involved, the more it spreads. And it’s not about how much you donate. If we all donated a few dollars to our favorite charities, the world would be a better place.
I meet so many amazing people doing charity work. It’s incredible to see how much our donations help.
2021 Charity Roundup
Here’s a quick rundown of what we accomplished this year…
- I personally donated over $1 million in trading profits to charity. (That’s two years in a row … I’m stoked!)
- Karmagawa’s third anniversary was on June 23. So far we’ve donated more than $6 million to 80 different charities.
- Karmagawa funded its first 3D-printed school in Madagascar. If the process scales we’ll be able to build schools faster, cheaper, and more sustainably. Big props to Thinking Huts for their innovative design.
- Finally, Karmagawa completed 23 new schools this year!
We just opened our 94th school…

Here’s another thing I’m proud of…
Is This the Hot Trading Trend for 2022?
Several top students are stepping up to the plate. Former student Mason donated $250,000 to The Barstool Fund last Christmas. He challenged me to join him. I didn’t hesitate, donating $100,000 right away.
Merry Christmas! I'm proud to support @stoolpresidente & the great #barstoolfund to help small businesses in these tough times with a donation of $100,000 from my charity @karmagawa & thanks to my student @mrileytrades for challenging me, please retweet, let's get more donations! pic.twitter.com/FSJAUizfW2

That’s the power of teaching a skill that can bring great wealth combined with social media sharing.
And it’s not only Mason…
Kyle Discovers the Joy of Giving
This year Kyle got inspired to use some of his newfound wealth in a meaningful way. In the past year, he’s donated to a variety of charities, including $10,000 to Libby Lou’s Safe Haven on his mom’s behalf.
Please congratulate my hardworking https://t.co/occ8wKDW7U student @traderkylec on not only passing the $2 million trading profit milestone, but because he’s now using his newfound wealth to give back to charity too, we need more traders doing this…and he likes using big checks! pic.twitter.com/yHOvLQv6Q0

Kyle also treated his grandparents. His grandfather had always dreamed of flying on a jet so Kyle made it happen. He described it as “an experience of a lifetime for the whole family.”
I am SO proud of so many of my newest https://t.co/occ8wKDW7U students like @traderkylec who not only have made millions, but now they're also treating their family & donating to charity too! Please retweet & congratulate Kyle & check out https://t.co/BDIdIRjAQm his new chatroom! pic.twitter.com/MsSlI2SYPC

Kyle enjoys living well and he loves that trading allows him to travel. Now he’s motivated to do more with his money. I couldn’t be more proud.
Jack’s Big Birthday Surprise
Growing up, Jack’s parents sacrificed a lot for him. As he puts it, “They worked their butts off for me. I’ve always appreciated that.”
His parents always did their best to make him happy. Jack wasn’t able to express how grateful he was — until now.
For his birthday this year, Jack turned the tables. He decided to spend some of his $8.6 million in profits on his parents.
Jack said surprising his parents with $100,000 cash on his 23rd birthday was the proudest day of his entire life.
Again, I couldn’t be more proud. Jack lives a humble life even though he’s made millions.
Jack and Kyle also give back to the trading community. Along with Mari, Jack and Kyle are mentors in Breakouts and Breakdowns. If you want to learn from two impressive young traders, I highly recommend it.
Before you go off to spend holiday time with your family…
Help Us Make the World a Better Place
I’m blown away by traders like Mason, Jack, and Kyle who generously give back. And I’m proud of everything Karmagawa is doing to make the world a better place.
Now I want to take it further…
We share everything on social media. Sadly, that brings out haters. It’s mind-boggling when haters criticize charity donations, but it happens. It used to bother me. Not anymore and here’s why…
Sharing on social media has led to followers funding another 20 schools. I’m SO grateful for the generosity of our followers. Thank you!
If you want to help us make the world a better place…
