How Chris Cole Is Making An Impact In Other Individuals’ Lives!



Chris Cole, a 37-year-old financial trader from Augusta, Georgia walked a different path than others in his industry. Born into poverty and surrounded by drugs and violence during his formative years, Chris found his way without the typical connections, mentors, and formal training of many of his peers. “I overcame these obstacles by realizing that God created me for a purpose,” Chris explains. “ My breath was all the motivation I needed to go after anything my mind could perceive. I focused on controlling the things that I had control over and disregarding any other distractions that stood in the way of me getting there.” 


Building Success


With those obstacles cleared and distractions avoided, Chris began establishing himself as one of the preeminent financial traders in the industry. He made more than $10 million for himself and his clients by shorting Bitcoin futures in 2018, and has been named one of the top retail traders in the world by Futures Truth magazine. Chris also became the first Black listing director of a publicly traded company and the owner of the first Black owned forex and cryptocurrency trading exchange. “I can do whatever I put my mind to,” he explains. “God wouldn’t even allow me to think it if it was impossible.” 


Extending a Hand


Reflecting on the difficulty of his own self-made path, Chris set out to remedy that ailment for other aspiring entrepreneurs. As current president of Bridging Wealth Opportunities (BWO), Chris serves as a teacher and mentor to those looking to enter the industry who, like him, weren’t born on Wall Street. “The focus is educating students on building generational wealth and creating technology and platforms to help grow wealth while simultaneously educating them,” he explains. To date, Chris has mentored over 100 students on their way to becoming full time traders, with more than $50 million in trading capital secured. “My business helps others by exposing them to and educating them on information that typically can only be found in the private and privileged sectors of life,” he adds. “It also teaches the empowering mindset that allows us to tap into our infinite potential and habits of execution.”


Continued Work


As giving back and paving the way for future generations becomes an increasing goal for Chris, his focus remains on ways that he can continue to utilize methods that are working but also grow his impact and ability to lend a hand. “I will continue to grow and succeed by the testimonials of the community and students,” Chris explains honestly. “My favorite saying is ‘You can’t argue with results.’ It’s not easy but nothing worthwhile is. Those who are ready for a change and ready to put in the work will find me and my company at the right time.”
