Apiary Summits offer something unique. Attendee’s of the Orlando Apiary Summit received a $1000 funded account to manage during the 3-days event. Moreover, they were able to keep 60% of any profits. Summits are an important part of the Trader Development process because it gives people a sense of reality. What’s possible and what’s not – you get to see real folks, making real money, in real life. It’s a tremendous boost to your motivation.
And in terms of success, this Apiary Summit was a huge hit. 82 traders with laptops en toe, converged on a simple conference room in Orlando, Florida where they managed a collective portfolio of $82,000. These traders represent all walks of life from an ice cream maker in Chicago to a young entrepreneur from Mexico to a NASA engineer from Florida. It is truly a unique gathering of traders!
But as impressive as the group is, it’s even more impressive to see what they were able to accomplish. You may think from reading the annual report of your favorite mutual fund that numbers like 12-15% annual return is acceptable performance. Which to most of the world it is. Nobody walks away from numbers like that.
However, by the end of trading on the third day of the conference the portfolio had grown to $84, 788 – a 3.28% return. You read that correct – in just 3-days this rag-tag team of traders yielded a 3.28% return! Take that Fidelity.
The feedback we get from the gathering of traders is overwhelmingly great. It’s educational, it’s experiential, it motivational – and by the numbers – it’s successful! The next Apiary Summit is scheduled for September 19-21 in Salt Lake City. We hope to trade with you then!
