Podcast: Success Made Simple – On Stock Trading and Alternative Investing

Jerremy Alexander Newsome is on a mission to enrich lives with mentally liberating education. Since the age of seven, he has been fascinated with investing and growth and even convinced his father to match his investment deposit for some Apple stock back in 1995, which would be worth $14,000,000. His passion for helping others enrich their lives through investing led him to found Real Life Trading in 2014. This starting point has allowed him to assist and enrich tens of thousands of lives while also growing the company organically to a seven-figure business.
