Tell us about your childhood and where you grew up?
I was born in the countryside of Ukraine. More than ten years ago my family moved to Cyprus, EU. Unlike most kids, I wouldn’t say I liked to play. As a child, I was focused on the study and learning something new. My granny used to watch American series. And this is how I heard about stock investing for the first time in my life. It was so exciting and mysterious. And I wanted to know about making money in the stock market. I remember going to the library and asking for investing books at the age of 6 years. The lady was speechless to hear such a request because of my age and because investing was still taboo in Ukraine after the USSR collapsed. Only three years later, I finally found my first investing book. I still remember that feeling. It was like the American dream for me that finally came true.
How did you get started as an entrepreneur?
In some way, my entrepreneur journey started at school when I was selling handmade bags. I started trading after the crisis of 2008. My family lost money on real estate projects. We tried to sell our property, and decreased prices, but no one wanted to buy. That situation made me look for another type of investment where we could have complete control over funds regardless of the economic situation and have good liquidity of funds. After research, I realized stock and commodity trading is the best way to reach my goals. I started self-study and made all the mistakes a beginner trader can make. At some point, I was almost ready to give up. But I was lucky to get another turning point in my life. Larry Williams and his studies helped me understand what I was doing wrong. And finally, I got success. A few years later, my friends asked if I could manage their accounts. And it became the beginning of my business. Clients recommended me to their friends, and the business grew very fast. Running a business is an evolutional process. I am moving to the next level by incorporating a hedge fund and CTA in the USA.
What is one business lesson you would tell a startup founder?
Keep moving on no matter what. Failure can easily distract you from your most important goals and plan. The only way to stay focused is to control your emotions. It sounds like a cliché and easy to do, but when you run a real business and deal with unexpected situations, it is not that easy task. But it is what you need to survive and prosper. “I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to the success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.” John D. Rockefeller
