This week’s Misfit Entrepreneur is Robb Reinhold. Robb is the founder of Maverick Trading, a unique firm that provides capital to traders to help them succeed essentially staking them.
Robb has been trading the markets since 1997 and has devoted the last 15 years to the intricate fields of psychology, neuroscience, and behavior modification. He knows what it takes to succeed in one of the toughest games in the world.
Many of you know that I have owned a trading education business, 12 Minute Trading for almost 20 years and there is no doubt learning how to be a disciplined trader in the markets has helped me as an entrepreneur. And it all begins between your ears. I’ve asked Robb on today, not just to talk about building his trading business, but to share the lessons learned from trading that translate directly to entrepreneurial success.
Rob started his journey in sixth grade when he was inspired by a great teacher. He was taught about what it means to have your money work for you. But then he was in a car accident at 16. This led to a settlement which he took and invested in stocks. He almost doubled his money and was hooked. He then gave his earnings back as the market turned. It was the early stages of online trading and he found a company called Maverick Trading where he could learn and grow as a trader. As he became more successful and understood the business, it made sense to buy it, so he did becoming the owner and president.
