Greg Secker is an extremely successful entrepreneur and philanthropist who shares his expertise with others as a master trader with speaking engagements both nationally and internationally. Among his very significant accomplishments include the founding of the Knowledge to Action Group in 2003.
The Knowledge to Action Group includes Smart Chart Software, Capital Index, Learn to Trade, and The Greg Secker Foundation. These companies and organizations work cooperatively together to educate people in how to improve their lives by excelling in trading.
Mr. Secker recently sat down for an interview with Inspirery, answering questions relevant to his career successes and decisions he’s made along the way.
As a skilled trader, he noted that he observed people struggling to begin trading with ease. With some people not able to obtain the right education due to cost, he wanted to provide tools to those individuals to be able to trade, particularly in foreign transactions, at low risk.
He went on to expand a bit further on how he makes his money, developing programs like Learn to Trade and his foundation. Leaving the corporate world at age 27, he initially began to teach family and friends about trading in the Forex market.
He admitted that, in spite of the fact that the time it took to become profitable was short (three to six months), there were times when he did indeed want to give up. When he felt this way, he took a look back and made assessments of the steps he had taken thus far along the way, figuring out where things may have went wrong. From this self-evaluation, Learn to Trade was founded. Their webinars and workshops went on to educate people to go through similar situations Mr. Secker did without having to encounter similar trial and error situations.
Greg Secker started in business at Thomas Cook Financial services, moving to create a new business, The Virtual Trading Desk. Shortly thereafter, he became Vice President of Mellon Financial Corporation. With having learned a great deal of trading in national and international trading, he went out on his own and founded Learn to Trade in just three months.
