Ep. 146 — How Tela Holcomb Doubled Her 401(k) In 6 Months and “Traded” Her Way to Financial Independence
Tela Holcomb, is a self-described “mom, wife, six-figure stocks and options trader, 9 to 5 survivor, risk taker and freedom catcher.”
But she wasn’t always a stock trading wiz. It wasn’t until Tela lost her job in 2012 that she decided to dive into learning all she could about the stock market.
Today, Tela supports herself on income she earns from a combination of short-term stock trading and long-term investing and saving, as well as income earned from teaching online courses on how to trade. She joins Brown Ambition today to offer tips* for beginner investors looking to get into the market — and gets real about what it really means to trade, day trade and invest (yep! they are all different). From purchasing her first stock (Coach!) to making $12,000 in three days to losing $7,000 in the blink of an eye, Tela opens up about the good, the bad and the ugly side of the market and how you can avoid common pitfalls.
“Start with the products and services you know because it’s going to motivate to you to keep going.
