Founder and Your Fearless Cap’n
COO & Veteran Trader
This is my second stint with TEN. From 2003 to 2007. More recently 2017-present.
Worked with Jon and Pete Najarian for about 10 years helping with the initial start-up that evolved into optionMONSTER education service and tradeMONSTER brokerage. Provided trader and analyst support. Researched trade idea generation. Helped manage live customer events, supported retail trading clients for financial education services.
Graduated with a finance degree at the University of Utah.
The best part of the job is the network of people we get to interact with every day and of course Prestons energy he brings each day.
Football guy like Preston. Played college football for Dixie Junior College for one year. Like to play basketball and love to watch pretty much anything sports-related.
I have a twin sister. Favorite pro teams are Dallas Cowboys, LA Dodgers, and Utah Jazz.
Mentor & Trading Buddy
Originally from Colorado, Maggie has lived all over the United States. As a child and through her college years she was a completive swimmer with backstroke as her specialty. After college, she took up Martial Arts and was a member of the USA/AAU team. Maggie met her husband at an international Karate tournament. They took up Ballroom Dancing and once again entered the competitive world specializing in American and International Latin styles. These days she tramps the forests truffle hunting with her dogs, does Tai Chi, cooking classes, gardening, raises heritage chickens, and paints.
Always a saver, she used stockbrokers and financial managers to direct and manage her accounts. Over a period of 40 years, she had watched her portfolio gain and then have significant loss percentages during market downturns. In early October 2008, she suggested her broker move her positions to cash. His reply, “Just stay tight. The market always recovers.” It does but losing almost 50% takes a long time to make up. She was pissed and decided to take matters into her own hands spending the following six months studying and practicing trading on her own. Her returns since have been excellent through all Market turns and climates.
Shortly after the 2008-2009 crash, she met Preston James. It was just after Weekly Options became available and Maggie was naturally curious did a search and Preston’s name came up. She thought his Money Trade concept was brilliant and to this day still trades a variation of the original idea. Currently a consultant with Traders Edge, she hosts a weekly webinar call Maggie’s Mastermind Project. Hundreds of people attend each week to hear her trading insights and market analysis. Now in her 70’s she devotes her time to teaching and mentoring students throughout the USA and as far away as Asia, Africa, and Australia. She jokes, “The only continent without one of her students is Antarctica.”
Mentor & Veteran Trader
Brandon started working with Trader’s Edge just over four years ago. Having been ‘born-and-raised’ in the Trader’s Edge family he started learning options trading through the mentorship program. Brandon fell in love with trading as it blended his creativity and logical side together. Eventually, he became a mentor himself and draws a lot of happiness helping people decipher the crazy world of options trading into something that is second nature for them. His favorite thing about trading (and mentoring) is the freedom of location. The world is too small not to explore and you can do so anywhere there is Wi-Fi. A little known fun fact about Brandon: he used to be in musical theatre for quite a few years and is pretty good at tap dancing. Just don’t ask him to dig up pictures! The only copies available are with his mom who refuses to throw them out.
