Still thinking it’s impossible to become a self-made millionaire at a very early age? Well, today’s guest is here to confirm that making your dreams come true can become a reality if you are persistent with your goals. Samuel Leach started making a lot of money when he was in college. He created a trading training that led him to start teaching other students ways in trading. Samuel Leach is the perfect example of why getting out of your comfort zone and being uncomfortable can be the key to success. He’s done it all, from teaching millennials to improve their financial skills and building his own international trading company, to becoming a Forbes Contributor in personal finance and a speaker at TED Talks. 

Samuel Leach discovered a gold mine while he was in college: He realized everyone needs financial education, and because the educational system doesn’t care about this matter, he decided to do it himself. Inspired by his underprivileged background, Samuel decided he would change his parents’ lives and help others educate themselves in financial circumstances. After 8 years of founding Samuel and Co. Sam and his team had taught over 3,000 people from 63 countries how they can build wealth, through earning a second income from trading or learning how to become a full-time trader through different programs. 

In this episode, we talk to Sam about stock trading, keeping your trade goals realistic and avoid greediness to make a positive impact on your finances. Learn how to keep your feet on the ground and stop caring about money, to actually earning some. Leach wants everyone to know good mental health is really important when you have this job: There are many ways to fall into temptations like gambling, luxury items and even getting into drugs when you have that much money. Join us as we talk to this genius and walk through a day in the life of a trader.
