I interviewed a very successful trend follower last Friday in his New York City office. This man to some may seem young (he is in his mid-thirties), but his firm has been producing great returns for nearly 10 years. He got his start in Europe appealing primarily to non-US investors, but now reaches thousands of clients across the globe. Today he manages well north of $1 billion USD in client capital.
No one would have left this meeting without a deep appreciation for this man’s aggressive nature. He doesn’t wait for people to give him permission. He is 100% entrepreneur through and through aiming to make “it” happen. Some think the key to success is some secret formula, but the real key is to just get started. Just do it.
