Secret Academy Episode - Rizwan Memon
About:

Like many others, Rizwan Memon looked up to his father for inspiration and guidance, and his father always encouraged him to do everything to the best of his ability. He comes from a long line of entrepreneurs so from a young age, he was focused on putting his money towards stock trading instead of buying the trendiest clothes that most young people are concerned with. Rizwan put 100% of his energy into learning everything there was to learn about trading in the stock market, and all of his hard work paid off when he was able to start his own consulting business. His business, Riz International, offers stock market and investment mentoring, personal financial consulting, and business management consulting.
