    385: $1000 a Day Trading Stocks From Home?

    Is trading stocks a legit way to make money from home? Or is it just another get-rich-quick-scheme?
    Admittedly, I’ve always kind of looked at stock trading as a glorified form of gambling. And to be sure, there are risks involved.
    In this episode, Teri Ijeoma does a good job of convincing me there really is an art and a science to it -- and that it is a winnable game.
    Teri is a former assistant principal at an elementary school, who turned her stock trading side hustle into a full-time income.
    To replace her day job salary, the MIT grad set herself a goal of making $300 a day.
    By trading stocks before school started and during her lunch break, she was hitting that goal in about a year.
    Today, Teri’s on a Million Dollar a Day mission -- that is, to help 1,000 people start making $1,000 a day trading stocks through her online course.
    Tune in to hear:
    Teri’s trading criteria Her advice for new traders Why small players like you and me may have an advantage over billion-dollar hedge funds and Wall Street quants Where and how you can get started trading today

    It’s a business model I’m excited about right now, and Andrew is proof that if you provide value through email, people are willing to pay for it.
    Tune in to hear why Andrew decided to start a newsletter and an online directory, how he’s grown his audience to more than 19,000 subscribers and 500 paying directory members in 3 years, and how he’s turned this into a profitable business.
