Greg Secker; Philanthropist, Trader, and Businessman

Greg Secker is the founder of Learn to Trade. He answered a Q&A that appeared on the CEOCFO Magazine. Secker was asked to comment on his philosophy of not asking why, but why not. He said that it has always been his philosophy and this meant that he started things first and then thought about them later. He believes that there is no reason for not giving something a chance when we ask why not. We can then think about the specific details as we progress.

Greg Secker explained how he made the leap into financing even though he studied agriculture in school. He made money by selling and repairing computers when he was a student at the University. He was able to improve his technical skills by teaching himself how to program as time moved. He met an employee from Thomas Cook at a job fair at the University. This enabled him to get a job at the company and on the team that developed the Virtual Trading Desk.

Greg gained interest in foreign exchange trading while working on the product. He had a grasp of the complexities of trading. He had written the functions that were making the trades. Secker got the idea of giving talks on foreign exchange trading after attending seminars by Jack Canfield and Tony Robbins. He started speaking in 2003.
