Life On Your Terms With Timothy Sykes


I am out of my mind excited to share today’s guest because I had the pleasure of interviewing Timothy Sykes, stock trader, author, teacher, and philanthropist. He is most known for turning $12,000 of his Bar Mitzvah money into almost 5 million dollars. Yes, you read that right! Even though Tim is insanely gifted in business, the big reason I wanted to talk with him today is because of his love for charity. Timothy inspires me to give bigger and to play bigger, and I can’t wait for you to hear this episode.
