"So I’ve met several billionaires and hanged out with several billionaires and they are uniformly fucks up, they are the weirdest , most people , you will ever meet, I never wanna be a billionaire"
Tim Skyes is a leading penny stock trader, teach and entrepreneur. He became famous at a young age for turning his $12,415 in Bar Mitzvah money into over $4.4 M from trading penny stocks. He now runs one of the largest online academies for teaching others to trade and has created several millionaire students from scratch.
Tim has been featured on CNBC, FOX news, CNN, Forbes and many others and has appeared on multiple reality and television shows. He’s also well-known for his large Instagram following of over 700,000 people who follow photos of his luxury lifestyle.
In the interview, we breakdown
The entire back story of how Tim turned just shy over 12k to 4.4 million
Some of the daily tactics he uses and teaches his top students
Why some of his millionaire students have been successful thus far and the lessons we can all implement
And you won’t believe what he says when I ask him about millionaires vs. billionaires and why it is so much better to strive to be a millionaire.
We also breakdown Tim’s perspective on if money buys happiness. I really enjoyed his answer to that one as well.
This was such a fun conversation. Tim is super smart at what he does and it was great to see his mind at work here.
