Teri Ijeoma is a millionaire, stock investor, and entrepreneur who teaches others how to invest in stocks. Despite her odd approach to becoming a stock investor, she has managed to carve herself a meaningful and distinct path.
She became interested in stocks during her senior year of high school. She interned at Morgan Stanley after graduating from college, where she gained experience in the financial markets. She eventually worked in consulting before deciding to explore another path, which led to a post in education, she told Side Hustle Pro.
Her childhood and familial history had an impact on this. The goal is to collaborate with Teach for America, a non-profit organization whose objective is to help provide equal access to education. She was in charge of arranging operations for the organization’s corps members’ courses and workshops, and she finally became an assistant principle at a newly opened school.
She began trading stocks as a side hustle while working in education. It once brought in $300 a day, which influenced her choice to leave her teaching job and focus only on stock trading.
She is now the founder of Trade and Travel, where she teaches people how to trade and achieve financial independence while fulfilling their goals. Her desire to teach others about trading and travel across the world inspired the creation of the company.
Ijeoma pursued both education and stock trading. However, the unexpected death of a close friend in 2017 caused her to reconsider how she lived. She realized after some thought that she had always wanted to go throughout the world.
After quitting her regular job, she realized she needed extra money to fund her trips and maintain herself. She decided to quit after calculating that she could make $300 per day in the stock market.
Prior to that, she spent time educating herself and participating in numerous programs and courses; she accomplished her goal in six months. In 2017, she embarked on a tour of Asia and Oceania after resigning.
She launched a stock trading school for $1,000 per person, then raised the price after polishing her curriculum and introducing comprehensive content. According to Forbes, she was named Creator Of The Year by the e-learning platform Teachable in 2020 after grossing more than $10 million. Trade and Travel claims to make more than $10 million each year on its website.
Ijeoma was reared in Dallas, Texas, by a single mother and her grandmother. Education was emphasized as the surest path to success in her estimation. This sparked her interest in physics, but after graduating from high school and being accepted to MIT, she decided to pursue business management.
