Despite having earned the award of “Mathematics Professor of the Year” twice at a local 2-year institution, Dr. Carlton Calhoun shifted his focus towards enabling financial education for all those who strived to learn. He believed that, since passion does not always pay bills, it is very important to know how to manage finances so that instead of keeping the savings idle, one can multiply it by utilizing their skills.
While every child is encouraged to perform well at school, Carlton’s family was one step further. Even though for the majority of the population, graduation referred to high school, for him and his family, it referred to college. Thus, since Carlton was a child, he had dedicated his time and efforts to acquiring education and valuable skills. And as he was a fast learner, he went as far as one could go in terms of education and ended up earning a Ph.D. Thus, with his capabilities, and knowledge, Carlton was now all set to make his way into practical life.
When in 2001, Carlton started his first business of web designing, he struggled to sustain it just like most new entrepreneurs. However, as he stayed dedicated to his work, he ended up scaling his business to 6+ figures by 2012. Moreover, in 2014, he also helped start a credit repair business that eventually hit multiple 7 figures within the first year. Thus, even though Carlton’s business shone, he knew it was time for a change. As a result, 5 years later when he was exposed to the world of trading and investing by his mentor and business partner, he discovered the potential existing in the financial markets and how with the correct skills, anyone could multiply their income. That being so, since that day, Carlton set to work towards a new journey, where he aimed to empower others with the skills and mindset that they need to experience success in every area of their lives.
Carlton believes that it is very important to earn money from the neck up, and not the neck down. And since our educational system does not equip our community with practical financial education, people end up wasting potential opportunities. Thus, to overcome this issue, Carlton now aims to help people learn how to multiply their money through trading, investing, and e-commerce so that their paradigms about money can be transformed.
