Chad M Stubbs – President and CEO
My name is Chad Stubbs and I am an entrepreneur. Over the years I have started a number of businesses some were successful on a small scale, some grew to become multi-million dollar enterprises. My first experience with trading in the stock market was in 1997. For me, this was a very different business environment and constituted a new and unique set of challenges. My successes were often followed by equal or greater failures.
After several years of struggling through trial and error, I decided if I was going to master trading, I was going to need help from an expert. As I studied the practices of successful traders, I began to see that there is a way to trade profitably, on a consistent basis, no matter what the market is doing.
After gaining the necessary knowledge and mastering the required skills like patience and discipline, I found I could trade with confidence. This opened a whole new world of opportunity for me and, as I saw the wealth potential in trading, I wanted to share what I had learned with others who were still struggling. That’s when I decided to use my entrepreneurial skills to build a business designed to help those who wanted to learn a proven system for trading.
This new business was launched in the year 2000. Since then I have helped thousands of novices and frustrated traders learn my systematic approach to trading and begin to see that it actually is possible to treat trading like a business. Every trader begins as an entrepreneur hoping to make a fortune in the market. Unfortunately, most never do. That is why it is always such a thrill each time I read another student’s story of success after learning and using my system.
If you are an entrepreneur in the market, or want to be, but don’t know how to make trading work for you, there is a good chance I can help. I encourage you to find out. When we look at the crazy, shaky world we live in, we realize how important it is for each of us to be able to take care of ourselves and our family, now and throughout our retirement years. I invite you to join forces with me and see what we can do together.
Brian McGill – Chief Financial Officer
I have worked in the field of finance for over thirty years now. Early on, I had the opportunity to work as a Financial Controller for several large, publicly traded companies. Unfortunately, as time went on, I became increasingly disgruntled from working with these companies due to the internal politics and lack of opportunity to advance within them.
I found myself pigeon-holed in accounting which stifled my desires to explore other disciplines within the business. It felt like the price I was paying for job security was too high, so I decided to go into the small business arena where I could have more control over my own destiny, win or lose. In this setting, I did experience both wins and losses, but my life became much more fulfilling and meaningful.
I have been working with Chad for the past seven years and I am pleased to be able to report that they are the most enjoyable and fruitful years of my life. I have finally found what I was looking for. We are not only helping people with this business, but we are also having fun doing it.
Barry Crowther –Member Relations and Client Support
Over the years I have been a life and health insurance agent, a real estate agent and I finally specialized in estate planning. With this background and experience, I went to work for the largest financial consulting firm in the state at that time and became their first vice president and senior financial consultant.
At this point in my life, I find working with Chad Stubbs to be both rewarding and fulfilling. It gives me an opportunity to help our clients resolve their financial (trade related) problems. We work together to turn things around in their lives and help them find the road to financial freedom and independence. Helping others solve their problems and find success in their lives helps me see these same results in my own life. If you need help, please know there is someone here for you.
