Greg Secker is an English entrepreneur, master trader, philanthropist, and international speaker. However, he claims his most important role is as a father.
Greg founded the Action Group in 2003, that consists of numerous companies focused on teaching trading and providing trading software. He also founded the Greg Secker Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to improving the overall quality life of people around the world.
So how did Greg’s journey begin? He claims he had both the boredom and the opportunity. After gaining experience trading in the United States, he returned to England and traded from home, and eventually decided he wanted to help others by teaching them how to trade.
Interestingly enough, although Greg Secker says no two days look the same for him anymore, he does most of his work from home. He’ll even participate in important board and business meetings from home. On the other hand, he may spend a lot of time traveling to give various talks.
Like most entrepreneurs, Greg is fascinated by how the power is shifting from television and major broadcasters to the viewer. Now that the masses are armed with technology, they can do their research and choose for themselves what brands to go with, instead of having commercials make their decisions.
Another interesting thing about Greg is that he credits working at a local bar in his youth for some of his success today. He claims that dealing with difficult customers has made him more effective when it comes to dealing with people in the business world.
If you’d like to arm yourself with even more of Greg’s knowledge, he recommends reading Tim Ferris’ Tools of Titans. In this book, Tim interviews various entrepreneurs and tells you their secrets and strategies for finding success.
One of the things Greg is most proud of is the Greg Secker foundation. The non-profit organization focuses on providing education, life skills, and youth leadership to those in need. The foundation has created programs like The Christmas Basket Brigade and the Young Leaders’ Festival.
