Bi’Jah Felicia
Leonard magazine

Journalist : What inspired you to develop your idea?

My primary reason for starting this business was to inspire my 13-year-old daughter, Bi’Jah “BB” to become her own young entrepreneur.

Journalist : How have your priorities changed from when you first started?

Well personal I feel my priorities has always been in order before I graduated high school. I always knew what I wanted to do, and I did what was needed to be done to reach my goals.

Journalist :  Knowing what you know now, is there anything you would have done differently when you had first start?

Being a Black woman, and a business owner for those who are becoming a 1st time Entrepreneur, my advice would be you must realize that to run a successful business it takes time, patients, motivation, and plenty of drive. You can’t think everything will happen like you want It to in the begging, it takes time and to have a good business you must have customer skills. But my advice to any one starting out, always pay attention, listen, watch and if you have a good mentor like I had which is my father (R.I,P) he taught me well and I valued everything I learn from him and appreciated his knowledge and wisdom.

Journalist :  How did you decide where to establish your company?

Well, me and my daughter Bi’Jah have lived in Hemet, Ca since she been a baby. Now 13 years old I figure starting a home base business would be a great idea. One day I decided to see if you may be ready to start this journey with me, so came up with our name first which is Minecraft Creations. Once we did all that it was then time for me to make it happen.  So, we are a non- profit business that has been thieving since January 2022. Our business is a craft type of business that specialize in custom make baskets, personalize items, shirts, hats, and many more things for any occasion.

Journalist :  What challenges did you have to overcome at the beginning of your journey?

Ways to market our business has been using platforms that are able to reach a larger customer base. And being we live in such a mid-size type of community it seems to be hard at times, but I do my best to utilize social media sites such as, Facebook, Flea markets, Pop up tents, Instagram has been my only way to advertise our business. So, I’m praying that me and my daughter are able to be notice by a larger audience and gain the publicity we need to grow our business, so by us being able to have this interview with Leonardo Magazine, I truly know it will gain more advertisement for our business

Journalist :  What is unique about your business?

One, we want our customers to know that we are very sincere about the work we do, and our main objective is to satisfy our customers. Every job we do we put in a lot of creativeness, a lot of hard work and dedication and having a creative mind frame is a must because you do have to think out the box most of the time.

Journalist :  What advice would you give to someone who is trying to become an entrepreneur?

Never give up on your Dreams or yourself, always know you must Believe in yourself 1st and that you’re your biggest fan when it comes to your success. Once you plant that seed you will then start to grow.

Journalist :  How do you define success?

Being to reach your goals in life, to build a legacy for yourself and being able to share the fruits of your labor with those you love. Seeing all your hard work pay off and of course and enjoying life.

Journalist :  What have you enjoyed most about starting your own business company?

1st and foremost being able to be my own boss truly gives you a sense of Power, a feeling that many women that don’t work for themselves couldn’t ever understand. And being able to teach my daughter life skills and what being your own boss consist of especially being a woman running her own business it is such a stepping stone.

Trading Alphas are Building Alpha Traders Worldwide

Stability of finances. It is the common goal that every country, company, and individual strives for.

All people benefit from stability. Feeling comfortable and at peace is key to living a beautiful life. Businesses and individuals are supposedly able to solve all problems through financial stability. To reach this stage, a variety of approaches are taken. Many people who get into the best academic institutions rely on academics to establish financial stability. It is not uncommon for young people to start their own businesses. Those who seek shortcuts are also out there.

Even with an excellent degree and a quality education, financial security is not guaranteed. The crippling student loan debt only makes matters worse. They must be repaid by someone. The next step is to start a business. Businesses can provide amazing monetary benefits once they are established. Success isn’t guaranteed, and getting there takes time. Taking shortcuts is what the shortcutters do. It is true that they achieve successful outcomes, but what they achieve is not sustainable. This is a temporary situation.

There is a need to change mindsets since these common approaches are not efficient or guarantee results. Financial literacy is more important than financial stability; people need to set the right goals. To build a successful and financially stable future, this is one of the most important elements. One’s financial state improves the more they know about the finance landscape.

To achieve financial stability, investing is a smart move. Without the right knowledge, it is nearly impossible to navigate its complex terrain. Adham Bader’s Trading Alphas can help in this situation. This platform provides aspiring traders with the tools and knowledge to move around stock market trading successfully, showcasing many different strategies and options. Trading Alphas was founded by Adham Bader, who was unable to find such resources on the internet when he began trading stocks. He began training on his first paper when he was 15 years old. He was preparing himself for the real world when kids his age were doing Algebra.

When he began stock market trading, he was utterly disappointed to find no ‘reliable’ resources on the internet. Where there is a solution for everything on the internet, there were no such resources for aspiring stock market trading. Adding to the challenges were the rising cases of fraud and fake platforms. Many people lost their money because of these frauds. Adham wished to save other aspiring traders from being trapped in such a situation. This was when he founded Trading Alphas.

By establishing a community of like-minded people committed to financial literacy, the platform aims to build a network of like-minded individuals. It is essential for them to have thorough knowledge, experience, and understanding of how the stock market works before they enter this field. Expert traders offer live trading, one-on-one coaching, and a community that assists them every step of the way through the platform’s masterclass courses, coaching, and live trading.

Given how fake platforms and fraudulent individuals have conned people in the past, it has become a challenge for aspiring traders to trust any platform. Members can connect with experts the moment they sign up, so they are never left behind.

Trading Alphas has been serving the community of stock market traders for quite some time now, which has helped them acquire an elite status as the ‘educators of the stock market.’ They have also been featured in the media for the effort they are putting in to help increase people’s financial literacy. There is a lot that comes into financial literacy, but as Adham is an expert in stock market trading, they are contributing to people’s financial knowledge in a way they know best!

Successful Investor and Avid Educator, The Story of Simon Lerner



Simon Lerner

Learning how to trade stocks effectively is a hard task. For Simon Lerner, it took about 18 months to get to a consistent point where his winnings were larger than his losings. Now, he has made multiple seven figures by trading on the stock market. However, before all his success, he was on the path to becoming an engineer. While attending college, he found his engineering classes to be less than interesting. So, he switched his major to Business.

In the side, he was listening to business podcasts, learning how to trade in the stock market, and experimenting with various side hustles. He soon realized that he was learning more on his own and from the podcasts that he was listening to, than from his college classes.

After having a conversation with his economics professor, he decided to drop out of college. The conversation was about stocks. Simon had asked his professor for investing advice only to find that his professor doesn’t invest in stocks because his wife thinks it is a form of gambling. Simon realized that he was learning from someone without experience in the stock market, who has never started a business before, and who only makes $50,000 a year.

So, he dropped out of college, but he still decided to pursue an education—the unconventional way. He spent his money on tutors, books, events, seminars, and anything else that he found to be helpful. As he learned more and more, he applied what he learned to the stock market. Unfortunately, he lost around $15,000 in the stock market. But, as any entrepreneur knows, failure is a necessary step to success. After about 18 months of work, Simon had gotten to the point where his investing and trading began to be profitable.

He soon made over 7 figures in the stock market and decided to start a business—NetCon—to teach others how to do the same. NetCon brings in world-class speakers to share their business expertise at in-person events. NetCon also runs an online trading community where they provide educational resources for those aspiring to learn how to trade the stock market.

Unlike other trading communities, Simon realized the many problems in just having people copy the trades of another. So, instead, NetCon follows the old adage: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” In other words, NetCon teaches its trading community how to trade, not what to trade. As a result, users gain valuable skills that can help them become financially independent.

Over the next few years, Simon hopes to continue educating others on the topics of stocks, real estate, and everything surrounding financial literacy. The end goal being to “help people reduce their learning curve.” One of the more important points we can learn from Simon Lerner’s journey is that it is important to only take advice from people who already have, or have already achieved what you desire to accomplish.

Simon explains: “If you went to the gym, would you take advice from a person who is 300lb overweight on how to get a six-pack? No. In theory, the person may know what needs to be done to obtain a six-pack, but he has never had one. He is not a practitioner and therefore I would not take advice from him. The same applies to other areas of life—business, relationships, etc.”
