We had the good fortune of connecting with Juan Reyes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Juan, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success is definitely the impact I have on others and myself. When I first started seeing real progress, and success coming my way I knew I would get caught up with how fast I was growing and still are. I took a moment and realized that when I was struggling, trying to find my passion I had my family, friends, and other people support me all the way through. I then continued to work towards my goals and also helping others during that process. Behind my success and brand, there is a lot of hard work, dedication, and commitment.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
At the age of 16, I always enjoyed reading tons of books about business, money, and work ethic. I would read a book every single day until I finished and moved on to the next book. These books would educate me & teach me things school wouldn’t. Throughout my process of reading these books, The Stock Market immediately caught my eye. I studied, researched daily about what it was and how I could get started. After I did my research for the rest of my time being 16, I asked my parents If I could get started and Invest under their name when I turned 17. I started investing at a young age and went through many Ups & Downs. The starting process wasn’t easy, but with my work ethic and dedication, I had the feeling this was the beginning of something extraordinary, my journey. I started to “Day Trade” and got really good at it to the point where I was making thousands on top of thousands every week. I kept going at it for months and motivated me to reach beyond the sky. I didn’t go off buying fancy clothes or rewarding myself but instead reinvested every dollar to make even more and putting it towards my long term investments. As of today I do multiple forms of trading like day & option trading and more.

A big part of my journey and current success has a lot to do with reading these books every single day. I’ve always had these feelings in me at a young age that I would be different than everyone else and I still have these constant feelings as of today. My future success, and the people I will help and have an impact on, is something I get excited about every day waking up. It took me a long time to get to where I am today with all the long days and late nights working towards my passion and craft, although I am still going at it, It will definitely be worth it at the end of the day. I want to let whoever is reading this know, although you might be young, or even older, you have to trust your gut at first instinct because you could have the biggest impact on the people around you and the world. Your work will never go unnoticed, as I like to tell myself every day, with the man of above and your faith anything is possible.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would definitely recommend, going to hang out at the River Oaks Area, as it has one of the most beautiful sceneries In Houston. Many things to do like shopping, walking around enjoying nature, and overall the scenery is great.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Without the help of my parents, my inspiration & role models throughout my whole success this wouldn’t have been possible without them.
