Multi-Millionaire Cryptocurrency Entrepreneur Reveals All-Hustle, Failure and Success

Published

on

From humble beginnings to building a thriving trading career and diversifying into other businesses- Nenad continues to conquer every industry he sets his eyes on. A serial entrepreneur, angel investor, philanthropist, trader- he continues to inspire millions and create millionaires in his industry.

Who else do you know that not only has made millions but has helped others become successful? He is also the CEO of Advance Crypto Academy– the #1 Online Platform in North America that has 16,000 members that have access to the most updated information on crypto and forex.

Today we sit down with Neno to discuss how he continues to build an empire and achieve success at the young age of 25:

Neno- thank you for your time, how did this all start?

I had big dreams as a young kid. Immigrating at the age of 2 from Serbia while there was a war during 1992 forced my parents to start life all over again in Canada. While my dad was successful back home, in Canada to make ends meet and provide for the family- he started a Construction and Renovation company servicing ultra-high net worth individuals;

I was amazed by the wealth and the appearance of the homes my dad was working on. During the night time, my mom worked a job to help my father out and ensure we had enough. While helping my dad for free and working at his shop, I began to realize the value of money.

I absolutely hated school- the social circles, the useless gossip- I despised every moment of it. I attended college but I dropped out after 2 months because I was against the traditional education system and I never understood why I should be listening to the professor when he wasn’t rich and didn’t live the lifestyle that I aspired to live. I knew I was destined for more and I took the risk and dropped out.

I googled how to be rich and came across 2 books “Rich Dad Poor Dad” along with “Think and Grow Rich” which taught me the mindset of the wealthy and opened me up to a new world.

I was always a risk-taker. I would rather take a chance and fail vs dying, knowing that I never took a chance. I am not afraid to go homeless while going after my dreams. The saying “You miss 100% of the shots you never take” is real. I am willing to die for my dreams.

How did you get into trading?

I got a full-time job in the sales and finance department in a head office of a company in Oakville selling products like computers, home furniture, and other things. The goal for me was to work and save my own money but I was starting to realize that it was difficult to do so because of my income=my expenses. I needed another way out.

“On my way to success, I always asked myself the difference between the richest man in America and the poorest man. I realized it was a fine line of knowing information followed by application. Warren Buffett knows the art of making money and applies it. He may not have the highest IQ but knowing how to apply information and knowledge has made him billions”

I made the company I was working for $2.2 million in 2 years but my salary was about $50,000 after taxes which led me to the realization of 2 things:

  1. My income was spent on covering my expenses and I could barely save anything.
  2. A 9-5 was not going to help me save enough money to get rich

“THERE WAS A TIME DURING THIS PROCESS- I REMEMBER 1 DAY WALKING INTO MY CAR AND IT FELT LIKE I HAD 1000 POUNDS ON MY SHOULDER, I WAS ABSOLUTELY DEPRESSED AND NEEDED A WAY OUT”

A friend introduced me to an MLM opportunity and I learned about the power of residual income and using other people to leverage time. The concept of working ½ the time and make more money if not equivalent to my job excited me. After not being as successful I later joined another company and started earning $1000/month but started becoming stagnant in the process.

On Instagram, I saw an individual that had the lifestyle- nice watches and I messaged him asking “What do you do ?” He met me at a mall and he showed me the power of Forex and how he made $75,000 in 3 days, I was floored and couldn’t believe it.

It was not easy to trade and I didn’t succeed for the first 3 years and had some personal problems which led me to take a break after. After starting a landscaping and shisha lounge which wasn’t fun to run- I decided to figure this forex thing out and had an epiphany. Something clicked, and I started making profits with my first big month being $12,000.

“Trading is 90% psychology and 10% analytics”

At 19, I told myself that by 23 I needed to have $1M and a supercar. One week before my 23rd birthday- I had a gold Lamborghini and $1M. For me, it was either I get rich or die trying in the process- there was no other option.

How did you get involved in Bitcoin?

In early 2017, I needed to diversify my money and a couple of people approached me asking about BTC. I decided to research the tech behind this and understand the application even further. I was introduced to one of my friend’s partners who flipped a $6,000 account to $32M. I made $1M in 9 months and I introduced my friends to it and they made money in crypto to.

I later launched Advance Crypto Academy due to the popular demand from the results my clients received. In addition- people wanted to know how I achieved success and I am very transparent with my trades. If you go on my Instagram stories- you will see tonnes of results and testimonials of people that succeed with my trades.

How do you want people to remember you?

I want those close to me to have memories of the good times they spent with me- the times I made them smile and laugh. In addition, I want to make every person around me a better person and create that spark of inspiration in others to go and follow their dreams.

You have a dream? Go out and make it happen.

Things to Consider While Calculating Premiums

Published

on

If you are looking for an insurance policy, you need to look at the factors that insurance companies take into account to calculate the price of the premium. When you pay for the policies for your home, auto or life, you get coverage for the things covered in your policy. The different factors that are based on the price of insurance are the age of the underwriter, the amount of coverage you need, the type of coverage you are looking for, the area where you live, your personal information and other similar factors.

How to Calculate Insurance Premiums?

While calculating the insurance premium. You should keep in mind the following things through which you can low down the cost of your insurance. When calculating the insurance premium, Insurance Company London considers the following factors;

Your age:

The age of the driver matters much. If you are an experienced driver you can get the insurance of the car at a very reasonable rate. But in case, if you are a young driver then you should be aware that the new drivers have to face the things that keep up the insurance premium. Because young drivers have no experience. Your age is an important factor that the insurance companies take into account to predict the number of years you are going to use the insurance premium. If you are buying health insurance, you need medical care a lot more time if you are older in age compared to the one who is younger. The premium for older people is generally higher while for the younger they are quite cheap. In addition, teenage drivers have to pay more premium prices as there are more chances to face damages because of the accidents.

The type of coverage you want:

While taking the insurance coverage, you should be conscious that what type of insurance coverage suits that meets all your needs and complete the requirements. Generally, insurance companies offer you a lot of options when you are looking for an insurance policy. If you buy basic insurance coverage, the policy you buy will be much cheaper. On the other hand, if you buy comprehensive coverage, your premium would be expensive.

The amount of coverage: your premium price is based on the amount of coverage you buy. If you buy less coverage, your premium would be cheaper. If you buy auto insurance, and your deductible is higher, you have to pay less for the premium no matter what amount of coverage you buy.

Personal information:

While picking the insurance, you need to give all the personal information to the insurer. When you are shopping for an insurance policy, Insurance company London consider the factors like driving record, your yearly claims, age, gender, marital status, hobbies, the area you are living in, lifestyle, your health, medical history of your family, smoking status, etc.

How You Can Lower Your Insurance Premiums?

Insurance agencies are about assessing and managing the risks. The higher the hazard, the higher the premiums. In any case, there are approaches to bring down your premiums.

One way is to bundle your protection. For instance, on the off chance that you have your auto, home, and life coverage strategies with one organization, you’ll likely fit the bill for a markdown.

Obviously, you can set aside cash in the event that you lessen your inclusion (e.g., increase your deductible); be that as it may, that is not constantly a decent decision. Consider your circumstance and the probability that you’ll utilize the approach before settling on any choices.

There are different approaches to save money on your premiums, as well, yet they take even more responsibility. For instance, most states charge smokers up to 50% more than non-smokers for health insurance policies. That means if you’re a smoker paying $600 a month for health insurance, you could bring that down to $400 if you quit smoking.

For example; you may qualify for lower auto insurance rates if you improve your credit score. That’s because people with lower credit scores are, statistically speaking, more likely to be in an accident.

WHY #PAY TAMPA BAY

Florida is home to the third-largest cluster of insurance and banking companies in the U.S., making it an ideal location to launch and support a fintech venture.

Published

on

#PAY TAMPA BAY | 02.20.2020 | EMBARC COLLECTIVE
#PAY TAMPA BAY has opportunities for speakers, sponsors and supporters.

On my recent trip to Las Vegas for the Money 20/20 event, I received a lot of questions about #PAY TAMPA BAY. I’m writing this blog to share my vision for this unique event.

First and foremost our technology corridor is experiencing tremendous growth with startup incubators and accelerators in all three major cities, Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater. Huge investments from business leaders and local government cooperation is expediting growth.

Tampa Bay Lightning Owner, Jeff Vinik is collaborating with Bill Gate’s Cascade Partners to revitalize the downtown business district with a new innovation hub as a keystone in the project.

Strategic Property Partner’s $3 Billion dollar Water Street Project will catalyze the city and it’s technology oriented growth for 2020 and beyond. Water Street Project Website

As a native of Tampa Bay this is exciting news to me and it provided an opportunity to showcase this growth to the financial services industry. We want to attract attention and investment to the area to aid in growth and prosperity.

Embarc Collective is a 33,000 square foot, $12 million dollar, state-of-the-art innovation hub opening in 2020. #PAY TAMPA BAY is the first official event following the grand opening. The hub will have private workspaces, a public cafe, outdoor lounge and lending library. 

“We’ve created an urban porch for this historic, brick warehouse,” Jan Barna, president of Kreher/Barna Design Studio, said in a release. “And designed an interior that reflects a microcosm of our urban environment.”

To make the massive space a little more close-knit, it will be split up to “mini-neighborhoods” which are intended to have the tenants create close connections with their neighbors.

“You have different companies in private offices that have a small shared area, so it’s a community inside of a community,” she said. “These companies get to know each other, cheer each other on, but in a much smaller community.”

As important as this infrastructure is, it’s the people and their passion that make the difference. We have found that Tampa Bay is full of passionate leaders that are highly involved in fintech.

Two of those people are Rosa Shores and Gabe Higgins, Founders of BlockSpaces. We have partnered with this blockchain innovation studio that is focused on creating value-added solutions to organizations looking to leverage emerging technology to organize and present this upcoming event at this brand new, downtown innovation hub.

There is a number of other local passionate leaders in the fintech realm here in “the other Bay Area”. Numerous financial services giants are opening their doors in the corridor to leverage our burgeoning fintech industry and perks of a warmer climate.

Today, Florida is home to the third-largest cluster of insurance and banking companies in the U.S., making it an ideal location to launch and support a fintech venture. We’re reaching out to the fintech industry in many different ways to attract attention and investment to the area.

Recently a cohort representing St. Pete’s financial services leaders joined the Greater St. Petersburg Area EDC in Times Square on October 25 during the Finovate Fall event to talk to New York-based companies about the business opportunity in the Sunshine City.

Greater St. Pete EDC President, J.P. Dubuque was joined by Intrinio, Presence, Raymond James, Dynasty Financial Partners, and the City of St. Petersburg, who shared their Florida Fintech story with the Finovate Fall delegates and members of the media.

“St. Pete is young and vibrant, it’s a happening place. It’s one of the most up-and-coming cities in the Southeast”

Shirl Penny, President & CEO, Dynasty Financial Partners.

“Financial services companies don’t need to be in New York, they can be in St. Pete, thrive, succeed and be much happier” said St. Pete EDC President.

“I think we need to pump our chest out and be proud of who and what we are, and even more so about what we’re becoming” said Tash Elwyn, President and CEO of Raymond James, Private Clients Group.

“We need to continue to do more of this, we need to tell the story, work together and we need to make sure everybody knows how special St. Pete is”.

I personally find a great challenge in this and am joining the ranks of those already working to attract attention and investment to the area. I have committed my company to organizing this event with the intention of helping to build progress, talent density and take part in the growth and transformation of this thriving technology corridor.

#PAY TAMPA BAY has opportunities for speakers, sponsors and supporters. We want to challenge companies in the financial services space to get involved and participate in this special one day event designed to bring fintech leaders to the Tampa Bay area.

If you want to support innovation and gain insight to what Tampa Bay has to offer please contact us. We’re happy to discuss your organization’s participation in this unique and inspiring event.
