In high school, I didn't really "fit in"...
I was a shy kid without exceptional academic intelligence. I was usually chosen 2nd to last in team sports, and my social popularity… well, there's not much to talk about there.
But what I did have was a very unique skillset. I had a high level of financial understanding and awareness.
During class, I felt as if I knew more about business, investing and financial independence than my economics teachers. I certainly knew more than the other students.
So when one of the popular girls from high school asked me to teach her about making money online, I jumped at the opportunity.
Her name was Amy Sangster.
You might recognise her from a cheesy YouTube video back in early 2012 when she bought her first Lamborghini. She was 22 at the time, and the video went viral - gaining over 10 million views.
The first business I taught her was eBay. She absolutely nailed it. In a few months, she grew my humble import business by over 400%.
I insisted that she let me show her what I was doing in Forex Trading.
She absolutely nailed that, too. And in a few months, she was consistently outperforming my returns.
In a relatively short period of time, she quit her job at the National Australia Bank.
I knew in my heart of hearts that I had something here.
I knew that if I could teach Amy how to get these results, that I could teach anyone to do the same.
