Who We Are
I want to tell you a story about two people and how different their lives are today. To do that, I want to go back to 2008-09 and the massive collapse of the stock market which occurred.
Person #1: Sold all stock and bond assets during the financial crisis of 2008. Never went into the stock market again.
Person #2: Held on through the 2008-09 crisis – took some hits – but continued investing and began learning new ways to get better returns on capital.
Now in 2022:
Person #1 is in her 70s and works two jobs in order to make ends meet. She has NO life savings and lives week to week, paycheck to paycheck. And social security isn’t exactly getting it done for her.
Person #2 is in his 70s and is retired, living in Boise, Idaho. He travels regularly to see his sons and family. He finally bought that candy-apple red Corvette he’d always dreamed about and jokes about the day he’ll go on that African safari.
How do I know these people and their stories?
Because Person #1 is my mother and Person #2 is my father.
My mother would not listen to me when I told her NOT to exit the stock market in 2008. My father did.
When I started Traders Reserve in 2010, both of my parents were my reason why.
So I could help people overcome their fears of investing (like my mother’s), and to help them go beyond the basics of long-term stocks and funds (like my father).
That’s the driving force behind everything we do at Traders Reserve.
When you join this family of investors and traders, you’ll find people who have the same hopes, dreams, fears and worries as you do. You’ll also find a welcoming group of people who want to help YOU overcome and achieve, just as they have.
