Greg Secker is an entrepreneur and owner of Learn To Trade. In an interview with Inspirery.com, Secker responded to questions about how his start in business and the secret to his success. Like others in his business, he was drawn to the field of financing early in life.
He has had several positions within the field of finance. His first job was working for Thomas Cook Financial Services. There he would eventually be transferred to a new company named the Virtual Trading Desk. This was one of the very first real-time Forex trading arenas.
By the time he turned 25 he was working as the Vice President of Mellon Financial Corporation, which was then a Fortune 500 investment bank. Being employed there gave him the opportunity to learn to enrich both his customers’ accounts but his personal account as well. He told the online publication that while he enjoyed his work, his wife and children are the most important thing in his life.
In fact, spending time at home was one of the rewards of launching Learn to Trade. Greg Secker stated that he saw that many people having difficulties with learning how to trade and noted that there were not many ways to learn. He was thus inspired to create what would become Learn to Trade.
He used all of his knowledge from previous positions to make learning tools that would help anyone who used them including himself. (By the age of 27 he would be earning money at home.) Secker said that his success was due in part to the support he received from his family and friends.
They are credited with providing him with a clear outlook on life and some good ideas as well. In fact, his friends and family were also his first customers when he launched his company. Furthermore, he reported that even today the various interactions he has with those he meets at numerous public speaking gigs provide him with a lot of insight into the struggles and values of different individuals across the globe. Today Learn to Trade is said to be a popular “leader in stock trading education.”
