It’s been requested for quite some time, and here it is (I guess now is better than never?), my personal journey. I do my best to remember everything and start at the very beginning. At the end of the day, all I can really say is DO SOMETHING.
Clay’s interest in numbers has been around since he was a child. From an early age, Clay’s family noticed his entrepreneurial talent and helped nurture that. It also helped that he is competitive and wants to win.
A big moment in Clay’s life was happened he was a cart retriever at a grocery store. One time they were overwhelmed with work and one of the millionaire sons of the business offered to roll up his sleeves and help out. This opened up Clay’s eyes to the fact that you’re never too good to do the work required to grow/expand a business.
If you couldn’t tell by now, Clay has been focused on making the numbers and math work in his favor. He worked multiple jobs and started his own business to bring in extra revenue while he was in college. Instead of going out and partying like most of this classmates, Clay decided to focus on the growing the business.
It only took Clay one time to ‘fall in love’ with a penny stock and unfortunately take a 75% loss. However, this was a great learning experience for him and led him to investigate trading the market further. After putting out video charts on various tickers, he quickly became the most followed person on InvestorsHub.
As time went on, Clay decided to see who was serious about learning technical analysis and launched the website. As time went on and the site grew he hired on a friend from his church who is now known to the community as IT-Nate. Shortly after, Chezz joined the team as well.
Even after producing courses regarding the stock market and real estate, Clay’s true passion has always been the field of personal finance. That’s where the idea of www.MoneyWithClay.com came about.
The money just happens to be the scorecard of how well you are doing at this game of figuring out how the numbers work.
It’s taught me that you’re never too good to do anything if something is going to help grow your business.
I didn’t live the normal college experience because I chose to go down the path of working hard.
I thought, the stock market? That’s for dweebs! That’s for geeks! That’s boring.
I’d walk into a meeting and Don would say ‘Hey! Claytrader!’ That’s where the alias came from.
Because I did something. Just do something. I don’t know what your something is but just do it. You never know where it may lead.
My true passion is personal finance. I think the reason is that it is something everyone and anyone can do.
Make sure you have control of your life. If you don’t have control of your own life, how are you going to control trading?
