Having been a born entrepreneur, the first business he ever had was reselling golf balls he found on his grandparent’s front lawn that came from the golf course across the street from their home, he was 6 years old. All the business ventures he has done have been on his own with no outside help or capital funding from anyone, making him completely self-made.

Being a firm believer of keeping it simple when investing and trading J.R. has developed a winning method with a rule-based plan which allows him to swing trade and position trade and have zero stress zero drama and zero complications.

Being a mentor to aspiring new traders who need extra help in understanding what it takes to become consistently profitable in the investment and trading business is a great joy of his. Knowing how tough it can be when learning the business J.R. tries to help brand new investors and day traders cut down their long learning curve by instilling the proper information from the first day.

Taking the capital he made from his former day trading business and parlaying that into starting a Nano hedge fund which he now runs has been a momentous undertaking. Having the hedge fund and only doing position and swing trading has given him even more free time than ever before.

J.R. loves to travel to exotic locations and takes full advantage of the freedom trading gives him. He can manage the fund from anywhere on the planet there is Wi-Fi and takes full advantage of the fact that trading can be done from anywhere in the world although it is still quite a trick executing a position from 100 feet under the surface when he is scuba diving.
