Steve Suminski is the keynote instructor and CEO of Options University, a Global World Class Options Education company. He has presented stock and options trading for CNBC, Investools, Business Week, Success Magazine, and Donald Trump’s Learning Annex. He was literally one of the first people on the planet to do online trading, and is in the very highest demand as an options mentor. He doesn't believe options are for everyone, just for everyone who doesn't want to go broke in the stock market every few years. Steve has taught thousands of people worldwide the benefits of winning in all markets all the time using options. His highest value is for his office to be wherever he chooses it to be, to wear whatever he wants, and to have maximum time freedom. Steve truly wants that for others, too, because he believes that by helping others earn more in less time, they will be more free to pursue their very highest ideals and talents that they were literally born to contribute to the world.
