"Self-learning is the art of trading. I have experienced the highs and lows of a risk-taking lifestyle, which has taken me out of a hand to mouth existence as a pizza delivery guy to a dream life globally.
I am Javed Khan, founder of JKMT, and my interest in finance management grew and I knew that it is key to success. I started building my trading portfolio whilst working full-time at Dominos after dropping out of college. Dropping out of college was a very spontaneous decision that I took. I am grateful that because of my hard work and passion I am doing extremely well in life. I am the oldest son in a working-class family, and I supported my siblings with their chosen academic courses. I chose to drop out and put my time and efforts towards something I enjoyed, knowing that I can also reap the rewards of it too. However, I still encourage a good education. I was desperate to make money so I could help my family and others, and when the money started to roll in, I promised myself to help others by allocating % of my total income every year to those in need. I do this by directly helping people and bypassing the middlemen to ensure that the money gets put to good use. I view my success as a blessing that I want to share.
My father and his friends fly out to Bangladesh and go around different villages to hand out supplies. I dedicate 4% of my total income for this work - so for instance, when I made £352k in 2017, 4% was just above £14,000. I have also made a commitment to feed 100 families every year in third world countries. Currently, during the Covid-19 pandemic, I have offered additional support in the UK and abroad.
I feel extremely happy when I learn that my contribution has made positive impacts on someone's life, such as an individual was able to send their child to university and pay the school fees, a woman was able to stay home and take care of her disabled child."
