Active Investing StrategiesI have received numerous questions over the years about active investing versus passive investing strategies, and how one can trade in the stock market and make money.

Disclosure: Active investing is not a get rich quick scheme. Not everyone will see success with short-term trading in the stock market, this is very different from investing for the long-term, and you can lose money. I recommend doing further research on your own, as there are risks involved with stock trading. If you are interested in long-term investing, I recommend reading this.

I had the opportunity to interview Teri Ijeoma about active investing, who explains how this may be a possibility for you. If you are looking for a new career or even just a side hustle, this may be something that you want to look into.

Teri is extremely successful in her field, and teaches regular people like you and me how to make $1,000 a day with stocks.

When Teri started trading stocks nine years ago, she initially saw it as an opportunity to simply supplement her income.

However she was so successful with this side hustle that in 2017, she decided to quit her job as an assistant principal of an elementary school to travel the world and begin trading full-time.

While traveling, Teri was constantly asked to show others how she was successfully trading in the stock market, so she started an online school called Trade and Travel.

Teri received her Bachelors degree in Management Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and her Masters in Media and Communications from Dallas Theological Seminary. She was named 2018 Entrepreneur of the Year by National Black MBA Association, and was the Grand Champion of Teachable’s 2019 Creator Challenge.

Check out the interview below for more information on how to get started with active investing.

Questions about active investing strategies answered include:

  • How does trading in the stock market work?
  • What is the difference between active and passive investing?
  • What are active strategies? Is active or passive investing better?
  • How many hours does active investing take to get started?
  • Is active investing real? Is it too good to be true?

And more!

How to get started with active investing strategies.

active investor - Teri

Tell me your story. What do you do? 

I teach people how to actively invest in the stock market to pay off their debt, afford to travel, and supplement their income.

That was my story. I worked in education for 10 years. In my last year, I was an assistant principal of an elementary school, and one of my best friends passed away. In that moment, I realized that life was too short. The work had been getting really stressful and I realized that I needed an exit strategy.

I had been investing as a hobby and a side hustle for years, and so I decided to start practicing with more intention to see if I could use investing to replace my income. All I needed was $300 a day to replace my income.

I took some classes to better educate myself and began seeing my trades become more and more consistent. I worked my way up from a losing portfolio to consistently gaining $300 or more a day. I was able to quit my job and start traveling around the world trading stocks.

I traveled and lived in over 7 countries just through trading, and eventually people started asking me to teach them how to trade. That’s when my Trade and Travel online course was born. 

Did you know much about trading before you started? How did you get started?

I first learned about investing in high school. I did a summer program my junior year at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. They took us to visit the Chicago Stock Exchange and that was my first exposure to the markets. I was so impressed.

And then in my senior year of high school, Google made their initial public offering and I really wanted to buy stocks. Yet no one in my community knew anything about investing to advise me or join me in that venture. I didn’t start trading myself until I was in college.

I ended up going to MIT for college and interned on Wall Street with Morgan Stanley. While I didn’t want to work in finance after graduating, I learned enough to start investing as a side hustle.

What do you like about trading and active investing?

I love that trading stocks is a skillset that you can use for the rest of your life. I also love that trading is flexible. I can do it whenever I want and from wherever I want.

I was able to make over $20,000 on the beach in Greece, and over $60,000 on a tour bus in South Africa. The income has been great for me, but the flexibility—to me, that is priceless.

Can you tell us what goes into trading in the stock market? How does it work?

Trading is actually pretty simple, and I truly believe that anyone can do it.

First, you have to open a brokerage account that allows you to trade stocks. One of my favorites is called TradeStation, but you can use any online broker. Then, through your brokerage account you begin buying and selling stocks (shares of a company) as often as you want.

I think of it the same way that I did when I owned a candy stand in high school. I would go to Costco and get blow pops for $.10 a piece and then sell them at school for $.25.

Now I buy shares at $100 and sell them at $250. It’s the same concept. Trading is just a negotiation between buyers and sellers. It’s important to figure out your strategy and stick with it to see good returns.

Do you need a lot of money to get started with active investing strategies?

You don’t need a lot of money to get started. In most professional brokerage accounts, they have a minimum amount required to fund the account to get started.

TradeStation has allowed my Trade and Travel students to open an account with $500 and then access a simulator where they can practice with fake money while they are learning. That money just sits in their account like a bank account until they are ready to use it.

Once the students are ready to start trading with real money though, I suggest getting started with at least $2,000.

I teach my students to try to make 1% of their cash amount per day. So the goal with $2,000 would be $20 a day or $100 a week. 

What’s the difference between what you do and long-term investing for retirement?

What I do is called active investing.

Active investing allows you to make income from stocks in real time. You can use the money right away for paying off debt, traveling, and other goals.

With a retirement account, you are looking at it more like a savings account. You can’t really use the money you are earning until you are ready to retire.

You’re investing for the future with retirement accounts, while active trading is investing in the here and now, for the present.

The key is that as an active investor I am reading stock charts to learn when to buy and sell a stock. I can see from stock formations when the big banks are buying and selling, which allows me to buy stocks when prices are low and sell stock when the stock prices are too high.

When I sell the stocks, I realize that profit into my account and can then transfer it into my checking account for other uses. 

Through active trading, I’ve been able to pay off my student loans, take my family on vacation, and replace (and exceed) my former income. There’s nothing wrong with a retirement account, and I think it’s wise to still have one. But I enjoy active trading because it gives me the flexibility to decide to use my money now.

How many hours does active investing take?

When a person is first learning, it will take more time because they aren’t as familiar with the stocks, plus they are still learning the market.

I suggest that they spend a max of four hours a day—two hours at the beginning of the market day, one hour when the market closes, and another hour at the end of the day to review your stocks and check for the next day. 

Once you get more experience, you can easily spent just 30 to 45 minutes trading each day.

How long does it take someone to start making money with active investing? 

This varies, of course, but with my students the goal is to start taking trades within the first two weeks of taking the class. Then we improve upon their skills as they continue in the course.

It takes about 60 – 120 days to fully learn my trading system.

Each student is a little different. I have some that jump in, devour the information and start making gains right away.

I have one VIP student that made over $5,000 and recovered the cost that she paid for the course plus more,  in less than 60 days. I have one that was able to quit his job after 6 months to trade full-time. Then I have others that take a year or more to get it down pack. I suggest that my students practice trading for about a year and see consistent returns before deciding to trade full time.

What financial goals are you currently working towards?

My most recent goal was to make six figures in a day trading. I recently met that goal, so now I am focused on helping my students meet their financial goals.

My new goal is to help 1,000 students to make $1,000 in a day. That’s a million dollars a day that I know can be used to help change lives around the world. 

If you were starting back at ground zero, what would you do differently from the beginning?

I wish that I had started investing earlier. Google had their initial public offering into the stock market my senior year of high school. I still remember that the stock started at $83 but I couldn’t afford it.

Now Google is over $1,100!

If I had gotten started earlier, that could have changed the trajectory of my life. I also wish that I had been able to invest during the Great Recession of 2008. I wish that I had taken advantage of the opportunities to get into stocks at the lows.

But I’ve learned that many times missed opportunities can come back around—like we are experiencing lately. 

Can you talk about how this isn’t a get rich quick scheme? I’m sure many people may be thinking that this is too good to be true.

Learning how to trade isn’t hard,  yet it takes time and patience. It’s a skill set like learning a new language.

Trading is not something where you can just put in a little money today and then become a millionaire tomorrow.

The best traders make small consistent gains every day. Those small consistent gains are what add up to reach bigger goals. But it takes lots of practice with reading charts, risk management, and discipline to get into the right trades at the right time.

Can you tell me more about your course?  Can you share some success stories from students who have taken your course?

My full VIP Trade and Travel course has seven classes in it.

It starts with intro to the stock market for my novice investors, and then we move into risk management, technical analysis (reading charts), and my seven-step trading plan.

It’s important that novice investors learn to pick good companies, learn a risk management plan to protect themselves, and learn to read charts to get into trades at the right price. Once they master that, we also go into some more advanced strategies like shorting, which is making money when the stock market is going down, and options.

As far as success stories, I’ve had so many. I now have over 1,200 students in the Trade and Travel course and students are making it into the $1,000 In A Day Club every day.

One of my favorite students, Annette, was able to retire from her job as a Registered Nurse and take care of her two nephews after her sister passed away because of learning how to trade stocks in my course. She needed more income and free time to care for the kids, even to take her kids to school in the morning. Now she has been able to make over $2,600 in 20 minutes actively investing and is well over her monthly RN salary trading stocks. I love that I have allowed her to gain back quality time with her family. I remember literally screaming along with her on our coaching call when she told me the news.

    This is a bad product to push. Nobody continually makes money day trading. This might deserve an unsubscribe. Hope you were paid well for this guest post.

    1. shawn

      I have to agree with Paul. Not a post I would put on my blog. I would love to see how her students have performed with the recent market correction? This post is a sellout and should be removed. Just my opinion. Not something I thought I would see on

      1. I actually wasn’t paid anything for this guest post – it is a question that I am asked very often about so I decided to talk about it on Making Sense of Cents.

        I’m curious to learn why you are so against active investing?

      1. A person cannot say that trading for living is not possible if he/she didn’t try it. But trading requires much more knowledge and much more effort than most of the jobs. I have been trading for almost ten years before I stopped losing money. Currently, I am trading a small account and I also have small gains but they are consistent and that’s what matters. I will continue investing time and money and I’m sure it will pay off in next 2-3 years.

        No one ever said it’s easy! It’s not a get-rick-quick scheme and person who expects to get rich in few months should quit immediately.

        Try searching for Adam H.Grimes, Ed Seykota, Linda Raschke etc. You will see that it’s possible.

        Michelle, thanks for this great post and thanks for starting this topic. I think that saving money is just one small part of personal finance. Trading/Investing is the way to make your savings work for you.

      2. Joe Cagara

        A friendly advice from a professional investor with 20+ yrs of experience and whose income is 100 % derived from investments (both passive and active) and trading. No courses to sell, no blogs to maintain.

        Remove this post from your blog – at best your reputation will suffer, at worst you can get some people in serious trouble by influencing them to a) buy an expensive course and then b) lose a lot more by day trading and I don’t just mean money.
        Also, your question reveals that you have very little knowledge about this subject which makes me think that you included this post without giving it much thought about what exactly the author claims. Trading is very different from investing and day trading is not investing – it is exactly that – day trading, not active investing.
        And while trading for a living is possible, day trading for a living while possible is extremely improbable over long periods of time and comes with a host of problems that could destroy you as a person. Day trading is also a very fertile ground for charlatans and scam artists selling courses and promising easy riches and yes, making 1000’s daily while sitting on the beach.
        Here is a post from James Altucher that nicely sums up why not to day trade.
        The list is not exhaustive by any means but it is a good start for someone contemplating day trading for a living.

        Best of luck,
        Joe Cagara

        1. Joe – I don’t know how/why my question would reveal that I know little about the subject. I was simply asking for people’s opinions because I like to know their opinion. This is a personal finance website where I like to discuss people’s opinions.

        2. David

          Here, here. Well said Joe.

        3. Don

          Great points Joe. I have tried all of that and studied many systems, including options trading and using “technical analysis” and lost plenty of money. In the long-term, it is hard to get ahead, plus you have to pay slippage on taxable accounts which includes capital gains and trading commissions.

          There are very few profitable day traders. Even the ones that are profitable deal with a lot of stress. This lady never reveals anything about her strategy and I recently read a few of her interviews/guest posts on other sites.

          I tried watching some of her videos too. It was painful to watch to be honest.

          If it was that easy– why sell an expensive course?

        4. Tamy

          Just come right on out & say it.Because she is BLACK woman giving financial advice. Now forget the fact she went to MIT. and throughout the entire post it was reiterated that it was no get rich quick scheme.What it really came down to was really teaching you how to trade. Not once did it indicate that promises of high returns would be guaranteed. And if you been doing this for 20 years & still working I wouldn’t want you advising me.. and for the other lady that’s been trading & losing money well sounds like you could use this information. But I get it she is Black.
          Thank you for this wealth of information I will be passing it along to my family & friends.

          1. Nicole

            Thank you Tamy. Whether people want to admit it or not, that’s the underlying reason for such swift and harsh dismissal. Saying that you’ll stop patronizing a blog because of one post speaks volumes.

      3. shawn

        Michelle –
        I love investing and I think besides purchasing real estate/being a landlord it’s one of the best ways to grow your wealth. Owning a stock that pays you a dividend and you don’t have to deal with tenants or maintenance issues can sometimes be better than being a landlord 🙂 I have been actively trading/investing for 20+ years.I think everyone needs to be involved in the market.
        I enjoy your blog, just not this post. I think your readers could have been served better with a different stock investing side hustle than a $5000 “VIP course which claims to show you Everything you need to know to receive consistent paychecks from the stock market!”  Thanks for your response and sorry if I assumed you were paid to promote this post.

    3. Joesup Buttafucco

      Unless you see her track record…real statements (not a spreadsheet), but real statements from a broker (Schwab, for example), then it is all a big lie. Actually it’s complete fraud if you don’t see true Trading Account Statements from a Broker. And the worst part, it’s so shameful how these people can ripoff unknowing suckers who actually believe these lies and pay for fake “courses”. Shame on them.

      1. Don

        Very true. I remember the case with “Joey”. I grew up in Long Island.

  2. David

    I second the above criticism. As a fan of your site since 2016, I’m surprised and disappointed for the first time at one of your guest Q/A posts, and shocked at your implicit promotion of this product.

    Here is one of my favorite bits of delusion from this interview: “I teach my students to try to make 1% of their cash amount per day. So the goal with $2,000 would be $20 a day or $100 a week.” If you follow her guidance and, starting with $2,000, learn how to compound at a modest 1% a day (anyone can do that, right?) after 6 years of daily 1% growth, for 253 trading days a year, you will have made… $89,987,621,017.59!!

    More money than Warren Buffett in 6 years?! Whoa baby, what a course! Sign me up and take my money now, because that is the greatest ROI in the history of mankind.

    Put simply, this article (and her course) not only fails to add value to the lives of your readers – a few of whom are bound to be the unfortunate souls unwittingly duped into giving away their money to a charlatan – but it’s a particularly dangerous product to hawk during times of massive unemployment and global economic uncertainty, where panic and fear are causing many well intentioned people to gamble desperately.

    Please take this post down. And if you won’t do that, at least qualify it with the sobering data about how many retail investors lose their shirts day trading.

    1. David

      *correction to my above post. It will take 7* years of 1% fault growth to make $90B – not 6 years as I incorrectly stated. You’d only have a pauperish $7.2B if you follow her program for 6 years.

      1. Candace Koney

        I don’t understand all the negativity in these comments. I have been in the course since October of 2019. I understand the principles and follow the rules laid out in the course. This course is fantastic! I have lost small amounts on some trades, especially in the beginning. But tbh most of my trades are successful! I hope people look further into the course.

    2. Teri Ijeoma

      Hi David, thank you for your feedback. I can understand your skepticism during an uncertain time. Most of the course actually teaches new investors how to have risk management so that they don’t lose money. It’s been such a lifesaver for new investors that didn’t know how to put in stop loss orders in their accounts, or were getting into trades at the wrong time. Many of the students sent great feedback recently because the course protected them from losing when the market initially fell from the coronavirus. Some even made money when the market was falling from shorting and options.

      Here is a free webinar that shows more about my actual trading strategy: I think this will help answer some of your questions about how I aspire for 1% average returns. We don’t always reach our goals, and my students and I don’t trade everyday. Yet it’s small goal that is often attainable within our margin accounts.

  4. James Ross III

    Well I can tell you that Teri’s course is real. I enrolled in her VIP course in July 2019. I quit my 16 year corporate job from a fortune 50 company after 6 months. Please don’t bash what others are doing and calling them fraudulent based on your fears or past experiences. If you have detailed questions about my personal experience with Teri’s course DM me on IG: the_wallstreet_banker

  5. Will

    Woww. The comments on this thread lack alot of research. I truly wish some of you at least checked out the one of a kind benefits the Invest With Teri course comes with. I’ll give you 3, that made me buy the course.
    1.) A 1200 student FB group for trade and travel students. When I joined last April 2019 there were only 400. (None of us can fail on a trade with a support group that won’t let you trade prematurely. Books are cool but leave you to figure out how to secure your money ALONE. So, Yes good luck trading this in this volatile market with a $500 book.

    2.) Tradestation linked with Teri, we pay no monthly fees commission fees. If I bought a book I’d have to pay $150-$200 amonth just to use TRADESTATION. Trade and Travel sets your brokerage account uo to where you keep all of your profits without having to pay the fee. Thanks Teri this move you did for us newbies with Tradestation puts us in the game in itself is worth alot more than 2K for the course. Some of my friends (pro traders) joined just to get the Tradestation free a Trade and Travel student perk.

    3.) Tradestation has a sweet margin account set up. They allow us Trade and Travel students to day trade with 4 times the money we put in. Example. $2000 in your brokerage, margin account gives us $8000 to trade with. If I was a baller (which I wasn’t when I joined the course.) and I decided to enter with $25K Tradestation would give me $100K margin to trade with.

    This is we students hit 1K a day. The process was scary because I was worker minded. My mindset almost stopped me from joining the course. Don’t let fees scare you from blessings. My course is paid in full and I never would have known how to trade successfully if it wasn’t for Trade and Travel. So before you let your anxiety of fees scare you from actually blessing your portfolio check out what our group is doing. We are making money and none of us are getting let behind. Join the cheap courses if you want. See if that book will be there for you while you’re trading with your hard earned money. Shout out to my trade and travel family I couldn’t have made it this far without my fellow students, and Teri, keep on keeping on. God bless you for giving us tools to succeed for not just a month, but a LIFETIME!!

    As a father of 5 kids I can tell you her course is real and forever lifechanging. When I started last year my portfolio was just $500. As of now 10K… (Margin account power for 10K is 40K.)

    I am a proud 1K/Day student. Whether some believe me or not isn’t going to stop our accounts from growing using her strategies. Heres a link that will give you peace of mind and show you how we do it.

  6. David

    Hi Teri – To be clear, I’m not just skeptical – I am vehemently opposed to what you are teaching people to do with their money. And your response makes me even more terrified for your victims, er, I mean, students.

    Please, for the love of your fellow man, do not tell these pitiable, confused people to buy on margin. Do not tell them that 1% daily gains are sustainable for any meaningful time period (this would be an ~1,100% gain annualized).

    Please DO tell them how shorts, by definition, have limited upside, but infinite downside. Please do tell them they will never successfully time the market over the long term, and that even God can’t beat dollar cost averaging (Google Nick Magguilli).

    And if they somehow do luck into making any money, please do make sure they understand the negative tax implications of short term capital gains for security sales inside of an unqualified account. And make sure they understand that stop loss orders are completely irrelevant when you’re long the market, where there is infinite upside and limited downside.

    Here’s somebody worth listening to about trading on margin: “It is crazy in my view to borrow money on securities. It’s insane to risk what you have and need for something you don’t really need… My partner Charlie says there is only three ways a smart person can go broke: liquor, ladies and leverage. Now the truth is — the first two he just added because they started with L — it’s leverage.” – Warren Buffett

  7. Smallivy

    Michelle, I’ve been investing, speculating and/or trading stocks for the last 35 years, since I was 12. I’ve been through the 1987 crash, the early 1990s bear, the mid to late 1990s bull, the 1999 dot com crash, the 2000 to 2003 bear, the 2003 to 2008 bull, the housing crunch of 2008 to 2009, the bull from 2009 until this last spring then the government shutdown depression we’re in. I’ve been long and short. I’ve bought and sold large caps, small caps, mid caps, index funds, ETFs, SPiDeRs, DIAmonds, warrants, individual stocks, bonds, closed and open mutual funds, MLPs, puts, calls, penny stocks, and physical gold, silver, and platinum. I know what a spread, straddle, and strangle are. I’ve been the first investor in a start-up company and needed to get lawyer approval to sell shares to satisfy securities laws. I’ve done charting and can recognize an uptrend, downtrend, drawing lines, breakout, floor, ceiling, cup and handle, and head and shoulders are. I can make OHLC and candlestick charts by hand. I know not only what a beta is, but an alpha and a delta as well. And I’ve studied the Black and Scholes option pricing model. I’ve written 2 books on investing and money management. And I know the full name for Merrill Lynch ( Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner, and Smith).

    But I could not tell you if a given stock will be higher or lower in an hour. Or a day. Or a week. Or a month. Or a year. Short term trading is no different than flipping a coin. When you include fees and taxes, which are higher or day traders than they are for investors since you’re getting short term gains, there is zero chance of making money longterm. Just like playing the slots, some people “get lucky” and walk away with more than they started every given weekend, but anyone who plays everyday will lose everything over time. A 97% payout means you’ll lose at a 3% over time. There is a reason the casinos can give away free steak dinners.

  8. Max

    I’m not sure this is a scam like the other comments said, but I admit I too am skeptical. I’ve had friends who’ve tried day trading for years tell me they don’t recommend it due to the competition. I’ve heard it takes years and reading many books to get good at it

    I don’t see why people aren’t better off just investing in index funds while putting in much less time and effort than day trading

  9. Cheri

    I tried day trading for a few years. I was lured in by the guru’s claiming how easy it was and being the stubborn person that I am, I felt like I just needed to study more and I’d figure it out and get my money back. I was wrong.

    I bought books, watched webinars, joined online trading groups, spent hours and hours studying charts, etc., etc. I learned that there are a good number of people out there that are ok traders, but make their real money selling courses to “teach” other people how to do it. I’ve also seen shady behavior like the guru saying I just bought x number of shares of x company to get their followers to buy the stock, only for the guru to sell when the price is driven higher by all of their followers. I’ve been in trading rooms that are no longer running, probably because they were scams and didn’t actually show statements of their profits and losses for the day, but instead spreadsheets or other forms that could be manipulated.

    I’m not saying a person can’t make money day trading, but I would say the chances are very slim. IF you do decide to look into doing it, I’d say start with a pretend account and see how you do. You have to have good self-control to cut your losses and little things like a reliable internet connection and plenty of money to lose because you will lose money. One bad trade can wipe out gains quickly.

    I’m glad to see there were plenty of others who feel the same way as I do about day trading and spoke up. While making $20 a day might sound easy, with all the fees you have to pay to buy and sell, and so many other variables, it’s much harder than you think.

    I agree that there are a lot of immoral people just after your money in all facets of life. From my experience with Teri I do not feel she fits into that category. Her course is very detailed and takes time to learn and lots of practice and patience prior to trading live. She states this in her interviews and within the course. I have also read a lot and talked with numerous traders but the few I know making a great living off of trading practice the same strategies that Teri teaches. You also must understand that a person must stay dedicated and consistent. It took Teri 10 years to master trading. It’s about probability and risk management and your trading style. Teri goes over this throught the course numerous times. Teri and her team are very supportive and absolutely wants all her students to succeed, but we know that won’t happen simply because people will be people and it takes a certain commitment and consistency that not all people will succeed at. So I will not blame Teri if one does not find success in trading. Look in the mirror first. Teri provides a very easy to understand and detailed plan on how to become a successful trader but in the end it’s up to us to see it through.

    Sorry, I agree with many others here. These day trading pitches by folks tend to be BS. Be skeptical of the person asking for $$$ so they can teach you how to make $$$$$. If these people were really that good, we would never hear from them because they’d be retired. I generally associate these pitches as scams.

    Since when is trading stocks a scam? If you’re not about it – move on. I’ve been doing it for 20 years… pretty easy if you have guidance and a set of rules to follow.

    Hello. I just came across this article. I have actually been researching day trading and I am in the due diligence phase right now. I am startled by ALL the negative comments. What she is promoting is neither immoral nor unethical and let us not forget, YOU have the right to NOT patronize her business. I for one shall be purchasing her VIP course right away! One can only surmise that if the proposal was presented by an opposite gender/ethnicity, that it would be welcomed with opened arms.
