Not everyone is exceptionally skilled at a particular subject in school or sure about the career they want to pursue in their life. Jack Kellogg was one such person who was confused about what he wanted to do with his life but wanted to gain financial freedom nevertheless.
As a teenager, he started working at the LAZ Parking in valet. He was sure from a young age that he wanted to be self-employed in the future and started exploring different entrepreneurial ventures where he could invest the money he saved working as a valet attendant. In 2017, he made a new year’s resolution to learn about day trading and invest $10k in it. He wanted to become the best at something that was very challenging and stock trading filled this criterion.
Then began his journey of long hours of continuous studying, researching, and learning about different trading patterns. He knew that success didn’t come easily in this field and was willing to put in the huge effort required to be among the 10% traders who are successful. Fortunately, he met a childhood friend who was familiar with this field. He got Kellogg up to speed on some basics and then suggested Timothy Sykes’s Millionaire Challenge trading program for further guidance. Kellogg watched all his video lessons and felt prepared to start trading full-time in 2018 which was a year of learning from his mistakes. 2019 was a good year for him as he made over $150k in profits. But his hard work truly paid off in the hot 2020 stock market. He hit $1M in profits this year which was a significant milestone in his journey. Moreover, in February 2021 he made $2.5M, his best month to date, and then another $2M with March, April, May, June 2021 combined.
After achieving his trading goals, he wanted to use his experience and wealth to help others around him. He helped his girlfriend, Mariana, become a millionaire day trader at the age of 20. He also helped many others cross seven-figures which included his friends David and Ben. Moreover, he gifted his parents $100k cash to thank them for their constant support throughout his life. He also built a school in his name with the Bali Children’s project as a way to give back to the community.
Therefore, Kellogg was able to beat the odds and remove all doubts in people’s minds by successfully turning $30k into $8M by trading. This proves you don’t necessarily have to be a genius to survive in the market but it takes a lot of experimenting and learning to reach where Jack Kellogg is today.
