CEO and Stock Trader Simon Lerner Empowers Traders to Choose the Best Investments in the Market

Everyone wants to make an investment, but not everybody is equipped to analyze trends and predict how the market will perform in a given period. Investment opportunities are abundant, but choosing which will yield the most promising long-term returns necessitates a certain skill. CEO, stock trader, investor, and real estate developer Simon Lerner stays on top of his game by studying investment opportunities daily, and his success today was made possible because of his unique discernment when it comes to trading. Despite his success, the 22-year-old trader is making time to empower others to identify the best investment opportunities in the market today. 

Simon is the CEO of NetCon, an online trading community that helps students and aspiring investors become profitable traders in the long run. NetCon leverages real-time tips, tactics, and growth by using a tested and proven system. The data gathered using this system is shared with other traders within the community Simon has built. The NetCon Group is the mother company of several other sub-companies focusing on various niches. These sub-companies include the NetCon Trading Academy, NetCon Events, and the NetCon Apparel. 

In the past few years, Simon surprised everyone when he hosted four large networking conferences for entrepreneurs in several key locations: Long Island, the Hamptons, New York, and Los Angeles. He has invited influential individuals to these conferences, including Jason Capital, Dan Fleyshman, John Mallot, Jeff Sekinger, Ravi Abuvala, and Sean Mike Kelly. He was only 18 when he started organizing these conferences.

At his very young age, the Russian-born and raised investor has accomplished a great deal of feats over the past few years, including making multiple six-figure trades and investments in the stock market. He developed a trading community with more than 1,000 members, many of whom he helped transition from their day jobs to full-time trading. Simon acquired eight real estate properties and has five under construction. His most prized achievement, by far, is having more than enough finances to be able to make his mother retire, who raised him as a single mother.

Simon moved to the United States to pursue higher education when he was only 13 years old. When he was 15, he started selling video game items online, and strangers would pay him online for internet goods and services. It became a turning point in his will as he realized he had a gift in entrepreneurship. He attended college in New York and pursued a degree in engineering, but he later realized that he wanted a degree in Business. While attending his classes, however, he also realized that he was learning more by listening to podcasts than from his teachers. 

Simon dropped out of college and started investing heavily in his own trading education by paying to be mentored, attending seminars, reading books, and studying courses. He had a rough start with trading after losing $15,000, but he soon found his footing and competitive edge. Today, Simon is an inspiration to multiple people in the business world. And what is admirable is that he shares everything he knows with others so they can achieve their dreams. 

“With the growth of my personal brand and sharing my entrepreneurial journey on social media, I’ve had incredible opportunities to speak at many events in different countries and share my story and experience with people around the world,” he shared. 

With Simon at the helm, NetCon has evolved into a progressive organization allowing people to build meaningful and lasting relationships. Simon showed everyone that it is possible to build wealth without a college degree, but with the proper education, through the online courses and conferences, he attended. At the end of the day, it was his determination to succeed that helped him realize all his dreams.
