Timothy Sykes, self-made billionaire by the age of 21, though has an obvious eye for the stock market, discusses what truly gives life meaning in his eyes- charity, and sharing. Self-made millionaire by the age of 21, Timothy is an American penny stock trader who is now focused on philanthropy through his foundation, the Timothy Sykes Foundation, which provides education to underprivileged children around the world.

Words of wisdom, Thank you Mr. Sykes.

Projekt 9 says:

The description says billionaire… Tim is only a millionaire for anyone watching. That was a typo by the uploader. Still impressive to be a millionaire and all that he does! I've read his book and Tim is DEFINITELY legit and has an awesome story! If you've not read his book "An American Hedge Fund" you definitely should! 🙂

Human says:

Great topic! Well done.

Cameron S says:

I know how important this speech was you. Out of all the topics you could have chosen to speak about, you chose tell these kids the truth behind the fast cars and the cash and show them what really drives you to work harder than anyone I have ever met. Hopefully this speech is part of a cultural change. Where young people start studying hard and working hard with the desire to build their own school instead of buying a fast car. I believe you will be one day be the most impactful philanthropist of all time. Unconventional most likely, but most impactful most definitely. Thank you for everything Tim, you really are making the world a better place!

I was down town in Seattle where Paul Allen was singing “I am Billionaire”. Paul was so happy singing like a bird. Paul was singing at the Westlake Square. Paul was so happy; he was glowing. Paul gives a lot.

Aaron Smith says:

Does his charity support his penny stock subscribers who lost all their money trying to follow his picks, only to realize he was on the other side of the trades?

Roman says:

Load of rubbish he was never millionaire by 21

Laftiko Laf Tah Fx says:
