What's up Outliers - I'm Erik. I'm a Marine vet, options trader, real estate and angel investor. My mission is to share my experience creating wealth through investing & trading - without the BS. 

Contrary to the crap marketing you've seen, trading is not easy and success doesn't come overnight. However, I've been where you are and know what it takes to succeed as an investor and trader. While it may not be easy, it's entirely possible with the right mindset and approach.

I grew up with a low income single mom, in a high crime area (was even stabbed in the hand in high school). In 2007 I was introduced to investing by a high school teacher and spent my first few years doing a lot & accomplishing very little.

I've since spent over 30,000 hours honing my skillset. I created a "millionaire roadmap" for myself that emphasized aggressively saving, expanding my income, and becoming a better trader. I became a first generation millionaire in my late 20's as a result.

That mentor changed the trajectory of my life. From high school to grad school, Marine training to trading, I never cared what "average" people did. My focus was my own standards and objectives. The Outlier mindset was born. Finance enables me to do things I enjoy, like traveling to a new scuba diving spot, building cars and running a car club in San Diego (Forged Speed). 

Dive into the conversation on my YouTube channel ( and The Outlier Podcast ( where finance meets real life. Join the Outlier community (it's free) on Discord to surround yourself with other growth minded people pursuing extraordinary outcomes.
