In a recent interview conducted by Lynn Fosse of CEOCFO, Greg Secker, owner of Learn To Trade, stated his philosophy has always been; I’m not a why guy, I’m a why not guy. He habitually believed in saying yes to things and figuring out the details along the way. Despite Greg studying agriculture and food sciences in school, he made a big leap to finance.
While studying at the university, he built and sold computers. The chance enabled him to learn to code and become quite geeky. While working at a job fair, Greg received an invitation for an interview by the guy working at the Thomas Cook Financial Services stand. This encounter was the beginning of his career at the Virtual Trading Desk where he converted trading strategies into a programme a computer could understand. While working on the Virtual Trading Desk, his interest in foreign exchange peaked. He saw the profits made and thus borrowed £5,000 and managed to turn it into £60,000 in just under a year. When asked how he has shared his passion and knowledge, Secker’s answered that while attending seminars of the likes of Jack Canfield and others, he was inspired to speak to people and give them a physical tool with which they could make money.
He has spoken on the National Achievers Congress, the Success Summit Congress. Greg states The Greg Secker Foundation original mission was to empower young people with the necessary life skills; leadership, entrepreneurial, health, relationships. However, now their focus is on helping rebuild a community in the Philippines destroyed by the Typhoon Haiyan.
Being on the board of Ambassadors for City Philanthropy has enabled Greg to shape, direct, and inform the City about causes going on around the U.K and try to get more entrepreneurs and business owners to participate in philanthropy. He believes everyone should have access to life-changing tools such as his book; Financial freedom through forex. Greg sees himself as a Renaissance man as he feels the way you do anything in life is the way you do everything.
