“I worked re­ally hard to gain the trust from my par­ents to in­vest real money in my port­fo­lio.” Bran­don Fleisher, stu­dent and in­vest­ing whiz me the thrill.”

Not too long af­ter, Fleisher started spend­ing en­tire days comb­ing through com­pa­nies’ fi­nan­cial re­ports and study­ing bal­ance sheets.

It took about two years of bal­anc­ing school work­load and his pas­sion for run­ning a vir­tual port­fo­lio be­fore he got the chance to in­vest real money. Fas­ci­nated by his suc­cess and skills in the mar­kets, Fleisher’s par­ents gave him money to setup an ac­count with a bro­ker.

“I worked re­ally hard to gain the trust from my par­ents to in­vest the real money in my port­fo­lio,” he said, ex­plain­ing that he was mak­ing big prof­its in the fake money trade, where he in­vested in Net­flix and Tesla.

He has since broad­ened his net­work of in­vestors, and his com­pany, The Fi­nan­cial Bulls, is now op­er­ated with him as CEO and other peo­ple his age of­fer­ing fi­nan­cial ad­vice.

So what’s the se­cret to his suc­cess? Fleisher said it’s sim­ple: Find com­pa­nies that are grow­ing and prof­itable and have the pa­tience to stay in- vested for a good while.

It also helps if you’re a bit of a whiz kid too.

“I re­ally do like in­vest­ing. I don’t re­ally see it as a bur­den,” he said. “When I am do­ing in­vest­ments, it’s not as if I need to take a break at any point at all.”
