From Clueless Newbie to Multi-Millionaire: How Seeking Mentorship Changed My Life

by | Jun 14, 2023

Listen up, Evolvers…

One of the most critical steps newbie traders can take toward success is seeking mentorship.

Without this, forget about success in the stock market…

But in these strange times we’re living in … untrustworthy stock promoters, crypto crooks, and financial scams are more rampant than ever.

I understand how difficult it must be to know who to trust if you’re just starting to learn (or trade) in this environment.

With that in mind, today I’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane. 

I’ll tell you a story about my early years in the markets, how I found the right teacher, and explain why I’m so honored to be your trading mentor.

Keep reading and I’ll show you…

How I Found the Mentorship That Changed My Life

This needs your attention…

Roughly 10 years ago, I was working as a general accountant. I was always good with numbers and conservative about saving my money.

But like many Americans, I hated my job. I longed for something more challenging and stimulating…

I’ve always had a fascination with day trading. But initially, I didn’t have the skill to profit consistently

I bought shares of random stocks for random reasons. I didn’t have a strategy or game plan. 

I ended up getting lucky and avoided blowing my account up during this period … but make no mistake, I had no idea what I was doing…

That’s when I found my mentor, Tim Sykes. After watching his “PennyStocking Framework” DVD and joining his Trading Challenge, my entire life changed…

He was a tried-and-true veteran in an industry that I desperately wanted to understand. 

By watching every video Sykes posted and transcribing each of his webinars THREE TIMES, I ingrained a few critical lessons that helped me immensely on my trading journey… 

Without the right teacher, I probably would’ve ended up destroying my account and headed back to my day job with my tail between my legs. 

And I definitely wouldn’t be the multi-millionaire trader I am today…

I was lucky to discover Sykes’ lessons when I did. But these days, it’s more challenging to find a trustworthy trading mentor…

Why I’m Honored to Be Your Mentor

There are hoards of faceless Twitter profiles claiming to be “trading gurus.” 

Be wary of the fake gurus or ‘furus.’ Don’t follow trading advice from anyone who hasn’t proven their worth.

I knew I could trust Sykes because he shares all his trades on He focuses on teaching the process instead of hyping pumps.

Now, I’m lucky enough to have the pleasure of teaching you.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again … I love to teach.

But in times like this, when I’m not trading my best, I feel a certain responsibility to note that you can’t be completely results-oriented as a trader.

You have to realize that your technical analysis could be perfect and the trade could still go against you.

My best students understand this intuitively. They trade based on their conviction and don’t get hung up on small losses, even when they come one after another.

Plus, seeing so many students grow from inexperienced newbies to winning traders is the most inspiring thing in the world to me.

Take a look at one of my top students, Jenny Smith, for example…

Two years ago, she knew literally nothing about trading stocks or options. 

Then, she discovered Tim Sykes. And through Sykes, she found Evolved Trader…

Now, her options-trading profits support her entire family. (If you wanna see exactly how Jenny did it, click right here.)

And I hope to see many more “Jennys” as we continue learning, growing, and evolving together.

Final Thoughts

I want to teach you everything I know about trading, so you don’t have to work as hard as I did. 

You could go on your trading journey alone, or you could let me help by pushing you in the right direction. 

Even with my guidance, it won’t be easy. You’ll still have a lot of hard work to do. 

But I’ll be here to help you every step of the way, just as Tim Sykes was for me.
