The thriving foreign exchange (forex) market presents an exciting opportunity for courageous traders and entrepreneurs to grow their wealth beyond their wildest dreams. Building a successful career in forex is no walk in the park, and requires a degree of comfort with taking risks that few people naturally possess. Fortunately, as acclaimed forex trader and entrepreneur Krissy Jones explains, the skills and mindset you need to succeed in the industry can be learned and developed.
Reaching the Pinnacle of Forex Success
Krissy Jones is a classic forex success story. A trader and entrepreneur with years of experience in the industry, she has gone on to create three of the most exciting companies in forex: Fair Forex, The Forex Library, and Options Trading. Fair Forex is a regulated forex brokerage with a reputation for trustworthiness and for charging some of the lowest spreads, commissions, and fees on the market. The Forex Library is a forex news and education site dedicated to keeping readers educated, informed, and up-to-date on the forex market.
Now a chairperson for all three companies, Jones is proud of the work she’s accomplished in the industry. With significant experience in trading equities and forex, she creates valuable content for The Forex Library. Her role as chairperson allows her to spend more time on her philanthropic pursuits, from volunteering at humanitarian organizations and events such as the LA Food Bank to sponsoring families in poverty. According to Jones, she owes her current successes to her singular strength of character, which has allowed her to overcome considerable adversity.
Preparing the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs for Success
Over the course of her career, Jones has built six companies from the ground up. She’s familiar with the rollercoaster of setbacks and successes that entrepreneurs deal with. True entrepreneurs know that it takes several failures and learning from those failures to prevail and overcome adversity. Jones has reached this point in her entrepreneurial journey. She has gained a wealth of knowledge that she can now use to help others in their journey. “I want to inspire and help aspiring entrepreneurs be successful by avoiding some of the mistakes many of us just starting out fall into,” Jones explains.
Jones encourages new entrepreneurs to be prepared for anything and expect the unexpected. “Don’t let yourself get discouraged; ups-and-downs are a natural part of building a business, and mistakes are a critical part of growth. You can turn every misstep into a step forward by choosing to learn and grow from it,” she says. Jones claims that her experiences have shaped her into the person she’s become; it made her stronger, wiser, more confident, and resilient.
Putting in the Work to Improve the Community
Jones claims that one of the greatest things about reaching success is being able to give back to the community and the world at large. This is why she volunteers at the LA Food Bank every chance she gets; she can make a direct positive impact on her community. She also sponsors families in poverty, providing a direct source of support for those that need it most. She finds these methods of giving back to be among the most fulfilling. “I can make an impact with my own two hands, see the positive change with my own two eyes,” she explains.
Jones decided to give back in a big way this Christmas. Her family held a “sober October” in which they practiced strict frugality, foregoing outside food and drink or any kind of expensive recreational activities. With the money they saved, Jones contacted the Department of Public Social Services and asked to adopt 20 families for Thanksgiving and Christmas. She’s spent the holiday season gathering supplies, preparing boxes of food, and ordering presents for these families, many of whom are homeless or living in poverty. Jones decided to permanently adopt a woman and her son, supporting them in a variety of ways.
The Real Benefits of Success
According to Jones, the real benefits of success are not the money or even the security that it brings. It’s not the Ferrari she drives, though she does consider that a pleasant bonus. To her, true success is having the freedom to spend time with your family, give back to your community, and make an impact on the world around you. Her work in the forex industry has afforded her the ability to do just that; to live life the way she wants. “My motto has always been work hard, play hard, and give back. I’d say it’s worked out very well so far,” says Jones.
