I woke up at 04.00 a.m. to fish – unbelievable. To be honest I hate to wake up so early, but I love my husband 🙂 I realized that trading has one common thing with fishing – you have to be patient and wait to catch something significant!
Wish you all profitable week and good fishing :)
Inna Rosputnia – The Wall Street Queen Who Turned $10K Into $3,000,000 In Just A Few Years
Women in trading continue to be the shining light in the current market. There are many examples of female traders’ success stories but we did not have to dig deep to find the truly inspirational female business leader. Inna Rosputnia(Lady F) has overcome great odds and serve as a beacon for all those to follow.
Her example provides a high degree of hardship and success. “Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them“, so rightly stated by William Shakespeare.
Inna Rosputnia is one of the most successful female traders. Nominated to Women in Finance Awards in 2016, known as a trader, who turned $10k into $3,000,000 in a few years of trading and run one of the most fast growing investment companies, she was named “Wall Street Queen” by one of the bankers during the Women Economic Forum.
“When I was a child, nothing could have predicted my future career in finance. The only thing that connected my growing up in small Ukrainian village and Wall Street was watching American TV series with my granny. There were always some stories about investing, stocks, oil etc., and I dreamed of understanding and getting into this world.” – says Inna Rosputnia.
She was working as model and TV host but became closer to her true purpose only in 2007. Inna kept thinking about what she would like to do next; meanwhile she was working at Alfa Insurance IC.(a part of Alfa Group Consortium – one of Russia’s largest privately owned investment groups, with interests in oil and gas, commercial and investment banking, asset management, insurance, retail trade, telecommunications, water utilities and special situation investments). Finally, Inna began trading futures, commodities, and stocks in 2009.
“When I first started I was broke and in debts. I didn’t have the right to fail and I was always moving forward no matter what and no matter how difficult it was. When you can’t make a step back, you do your best, you open all your inner resources to proceed and to reach your goal. At most difficult times, when I was feeling like giving up, I looked back on how far I have reached already and how many people were depending on me. My family was always my pushing power, giving me support and inspiration.” – Inna tells.
Inna has also been active as a philanthropist since 2013 when she began providing funds to help women in Africa to attend universities and start own business. In 2016, Inna joined Cherie Blair Foundation for women to contribute to women empowerment and promote gender equity, human rights, and transparency. Inna has a special mission to engage women into trading and investing, educate them and empower.
Being a woman trader, who started from zero, and became millionaire she understands when it comes to financing and investing, women have special needs. Her work with Cherie Blair Foundation inspired Inna to wrote a book ‘Basic instinct of Woman Trader‘. In this book, Inna shares secrets about how to change mindset to succeed in trading and investing, and how to be profitable in trading. Her book is aimed to empower women, as she told her own story there.
“To reach any goal you need to make the first step – don’t wait for the right time (It will never come), do it now. Taking action is the way to success and common feature of all successful people. Just trust your inner voice, believe in yourself and keep moving forward!” – wrote Inna in her letter to readers.
Clad to share my new interview at 1000+ Stories, specially focused to empower women traders.
Reason for starting? When I first decide to start trading and investing, I could not find the guidanc or understanding of how it all works. And it was really difficult to find a good trader to manage my assets, a trader who is good with money and down to earth, focused on me, on my goals and not selling me general “working for all and suitable for all” investment decisions. It was the motivation to start Lady F Wealth Management – the place and the company I was looking for few years ago. I have a special mission to engage women in the investing world and to make our services transparent and global. Everyone, regardless of country of origin can access our services online and get customized investment advice or mentorship.
How do you define success? For me success is to fulfil myself, to do a job that makes me happy and inspires new projects. It’s a feeling that is burning inside of me every morning when I wake up. It’s being happy with what I do and having time to enjoy life with my family and the people I love. Our main goal is to make difference in the world by giving people access to professional services in investing and trading. We want to make investing easy and easy to understand for ordinary people and to empower and engage women in investing and trading.
Biggest success: My biggest success is building a strong family and keeping balance between my business and personal life. I was nominated for the Women in Finance Awards last year and It was a great honour for me to be among the 30 most successful women in the Finance field. I achieved this thanks to my family and their support.
What is your top challenge and how you have addressed it? I think challenge is good as it makes us smarter. It motivates me to make better decisions and to find new opportunities. It always opens new doors. Many people want to make investments and build their wealth, but very often they do not know how to do that and they are afraid of being scamed or making the wrong choice. I think this gives us a chance to build a service and customer experience that changes the way people think about investments and the way people invest. Lady F Wealth Management is the evolution in trading, investments and wealth management.
Who is your most important role model? My role models are women who change the world, who make the biggest contributions to making a difference, strong women who have overcome fears and obstacles – unstoppable women.
