I know what it takes to sacrifice for success. It’s what’s helped drive me to earn over $5.5 million in trading profits.*
And I love my life. I’ve traveled to over 100 countries. I can donate my trading profits to causes that are important to me, like helping children in Yemen… Now, I’m proud to announce my latest fundraisers for Lebanon and Mauritius…
But the idea of making goals a reality is threatening to some.
(*Please note: My results, along with the results of my top students, are far from typical. Individual results will vary. Most traders lose money. My top students and I have the benefit of many years of hard work and dedication. Trading is inherently risky. Do your due diligence and never risk more than you can afford to lose.)

Sacrifice for Success: What It Takes to Become a Successful Trader
There’s a reason the Trading Challenge isn’t for everyone…
Becoming a consistent, smart trader requires a lot of work. Most people don’t want to work.
You’ve gotta be willing to put in the time and effort.
YOU choose your dedication level, for me now it's choosing quality over quantity in my students, I don't want the most people with a BS get-rich-quick mindset nor do I want anyone dependent on my alerts. I LOVE teaching an actual process/rules because self-sufficiency is the key!
Becoming a self-sufficient trader doesn’t happen by accident.
But she’s learning to be a self-sufficient trader and how to lose. And Amy’s willing to sacrifice for success…
Lessons from a Break-Even Student
HUGE congrats to Amy for breaking even.
Amy continued to lose money for almost a year straight … going down to almost –$2,500.
Note how long it took her to lose almost $2,500.
Then, in April 2020, something clicked for her. Her investment in her education started to pay off. Within roughly three months, she made back those losses and is now slightly in the green.*
It took her a year to lose $2,500 … and she made it back in three months. That’s the exponential growth that can come along with full dedication.
But what’s even more impressive about Amy? She’s learning to trade while studying for her bar exam and working a full-time job.
I love this tweet from one of my most dedicated https://t.co/EcfUM6l2S3 students for SO MANY REASONS: 1.) she understands you must learn to lose small & manage risk 2.) she's busy as hell while in school/working & learning to trade too 3.) her profit chart is a solid cup & handle https://t.co/ZV7nW8n7na
My Top Students Started Just Like Amy…
I now have several millionaire students.* They all started in the Challenge, and they all have a few things in common…
In addition to my confirmed millionaire students, I have several six-figure students.* They’re all ready to take advantage of what the market sends their way.
Sacrifice for Success and PREPARE
My top students recognize the value of pursuing an education.
There are still a ton of people who think I’m a scam or that penny stocks are a scam.
But after I talked to him, he agreed to give my strategy a try. Now, he’s not only a millionaire, but he’s an active participant in the Trading Challenge chat room community.* He pays it forward by giving webinars. I’d say he’s a believer now.
I don’t have a problem with people doubting me, because I know they’ll see I’m authentic pretty fast. But I do have a problem with people who are close-minded and unwilling to learn.
That’s because they have the right mindset. They see me as training wheels, not some guru who will tell them exactly what to trade and when.
These students get it … Put in the work, follow the rules, and understand how penny stocks work. Now they’re nailing plays. I don’t think that’s a coincidence.
Also, she has the right mindset of sacrificing time/$ at first to learn a skill that she'll have for life. She's even responding to all comments like a champ, successful trading is NOT just about $, ALL my top https://t.co/EcfUM6l2S3 students are dedicated/self-sufficient too! https://t.co/ZV7nW8n7na
In comparison, I’ve made over $5.5 million, and I’ve been trading longer than him.* He’s a better penny stock trader than me! It’s an honor to be the teacher whose student exceeds him. I want more of that.
Trading Is a Marathon, Not a Sprint
Don’t expect your trading journey to be smooth sailing right from the start.
Even if you’re accepted into the Trading Challenge … even if you take the time to learn…
You’ll still take some losses. Every trader does.
Are you willing to lose a little in the name of learning … and to take the time to develop a strategy and process you can repeat to find consistency?
Are you willing to sacrifice your time to learn a skill you can use for the rest of your life?
My student Kyle Williams didn’t make money at first. In fact, he lost a lot in his first two years. But once he got serious about developing a strategy and understanding how penny stocks work, things started to change.
No two trading journeys are the same. But you need to put time and effort into your trading career if you want to find consistency.
It all comes back to how much you sacrifice. The more work you put in, the faster things will start to make sense. For many, that’s when they start to see positive results.
Once things start to click, it can start to feel like the trades come to you…
Remember to wait for the best trades to come to you, you do NOT have to trade every second, every minute, every hour, or even every day! My best $3k+ profit yesterday was on my $RLFTF dip buy after its intraday crash after the big runup that I didn't want to chase, patience pays!
But it’s not linear.
How to Sacrifice for Success — Intelligently
Everyone learns at a different pace, and there will be ups and downs.
Some things you can’t control, like how hot the market is or which sector is hot.
But instead of feeling FOMO, change your thought process. Instead of saying, “I’m missing all the best trades right now…”
Ask yourself, “What can I learn right now to prepare for the next hot market?”
My students who are killing it in the current volatile market have been working and studying for years. Now, they’re having their moment.
Regardless of the amount of time you put in, expect to lose a little no matter what. It’s part of the game.
Traders like Amy who understand how to cut losses quickly have an advantage. Anecdotally, they tend to ‘get it’ faster. They don’t have to go through a massive, traumatic loss to understand what I’m teaching.
As a trader, you’ve got two accounts — your monetary account and your knowledge account.
Take the time to build up your knowledge account first. That’s especially important at the beginning of your trading journey. It’s your foundation. While your trading account might not grow much — if at all — you’re still investing in your future.
It’s also important to stay vigilant. Unfortunately, you’re bound to come up against a lot of haters, frauds, and scammers along the way…
Why You Must Be Vigilant
Everyone wants to be a day trader now … There are plenty of fake gurus who are all too willing to take advantage of newbies.
So be careful about who you choose to surround yourself with and who you decide to learn from. I’m one of the few real penny stock teachers.
And I’ll never slide into your DMs to ask for money or tell you about an ‘amazing’ investment opportunity. It’s not how I work. Be wary of anyone who does that.
I want to help my students become self-sufficient. I’m willing to put in the work to teach you. What you do with that knowledge and what you’re willing to sacrifice for success is up to you.
Be willing to put in the work.
If you fall for a get-rich-quick scheme or don’t understand the truth about promoted stocks, you risk blowing up your account. When you learn to be self-sufficient, you don’t have to worry about someone else’s motivation.
