Mark Larson had a successful career as a real estate agent, then made the transition to the financial markets in 1997. Starting with little money, he focused on education first and did not chase the bullish tech markets or get crushed by the dot-com crash of 2000. As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, he tells his students to take the time to develop self-discipline and skills before investing.

Mark believes that the “buy and hold” strategy is no longer a viable form of investing. He stresses the need for a defined risk management strategy and the right education to be consistently profitable in the markets.

Mark attributes his success to having the right mentors as well as education. He has written five books on the stock markets and has shared the stage with such notable figures as General Colin Powell, Zig Ziglar, Joe Montana and First Lady Laura Bush.
