Teri Ijeoma began her professional career working in education and non-profits. When she started trading stocks nine years ago, she initially saw it as an opportunity to supplement her income. However, she was so successful with this side hustle that in 2017, she decided to quit her job, travel the world, and begin trading full-time.
While traveling, Teri was constantly asked to show others how she was successfully trading in the stock market. She set up and taught her first class in Thailand, her second in Vietnam, and had a fully-fledged curriculum created by the time she returned to the States. Now Teri offers an online curriculum that shares her investing strategies with people all over the world. She partners with organizations and companies to train and empower individuals to achieve financial freedom and build wealth through investing. In addition to this week’s podcast, you can learn more about Teri in our Personal Finance Spotlight: Teacher Turned Investor!
