Exclusive Interview with Gavin Mayo
Today we’d like to introduce you to Gavin Mayo.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
Gavin Mayo has been trading stocks since he was 13 years old. It all started when I was on vacation and I saw the Rolex store for the first time. I didn’t know what this watch was but when I saw the price tag I wanted one. I could not fathom why a Rolex Yacht-Master II 18k Yellow Gold 116688 would cost over $30,000. It intrigued me and later that night I went on Instagram to look at pictures. One man came up with the same Rolex. I searched his page and saw he owned nice cars, traveled, beautiful girls. I wondered what this guy did. Saw he traded stocks and from that day forward I knew I wanted to trade stocks. I didn’t know what a stock was so I searched on YouTube. From there it was history. I was a young kid that wanted to make money. That summer I sat in my room and watched countless stock YouTubers. When I First wanted to open my stock trading account my parents said no and said I would lose my money. One of their proclaimed financial advisors said to allow me to do it and it will teach me about money. They agreed. I started trading in class and making thousands. But also losing thousands. This is what taught me how to actually trade and leave emotions out of things. Eventually honed in on the skills after injury and started my first ever stock trading company called Earn.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
The first week I ended up getting Covid and a few weeks following I fell off my electric longboard and broke a few bones. From there I had nothing else to do other than scroll on TikTok. And that’s when I came across stock creators. The next day I started my own and then grew a following. I then started my own stock trading company called luxury equities. I went from 0-100 all within 4 months. I was a 19 year old business owner and made my first million right before I turned 20. Everything happens for a reason.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I’m the founder of Earn Financial. Earn is a company helping people enhance their economic place. It is a network of accounts across all social media platforms teaching the masses about all things finance and web3. There is a free discord where people can go and learn live from other high net worth individuals.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Anyone that is just getting into entrepreneurship and thinks they can’t make it. There are not many young entrepreneurs that are self made and actually created something and hopped on trends like I did.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
When I was a D1 athlete I got injured very badly and had nothing else to do. I was in a cast and was on my phone all day. I ended up seeing a stock video on my for you page on TikTok. I thought I could make it a lot better and that’s all it took to convince me. The next day I read a bunch of books for inspiration and wrote down video ideas. For 2 weeks straight I filmed and started posting 6-8 times a day. The key to my success was not giving up and volume. Any money I made I paid to learn the TikTok algorithm. I paid a few people and groups for advice and one thing they all had in common was volume. I never missed a day where I didn’t post at least 5 pieces of content. It was a slow grind up to 10k followers. I then started going live. And from there I grew to 100k the next week. I then realized it’s easy to grow accounts and started growing a few other stock and crypto pages. I needed them to promote my first ever business luxury equities. I then spread across all platforms and started getting big on YouTube, Twitter, and Reddit. But the accounts were anon and nobody actually knew I owned them. To this day I have a 9m follower network across 10+ accounts on all platforms.
What’s next for you?
My strategy in trading was penny stocks as a 13 year old kid. Eventually I started to build capital and I moved into more value investing and long term investing. This was the time I was starting my first ever stock trading company called luxury equities. People would follow my trades every day and it was working because the market was hot. Eventually that changed and I had to change my style a bit. I was first introduced to crypto trading in beginning of 2021 and realized it’s much better returns. One different thing that sets me apart from other traders is I trade something called “shitcoins” these are low market cap coins that anyone can make. But they can can do 10000% gains in one hour. Or you could lose everything. I got good at identifying which coins would pop and which ones would go to zero. I now mainly trade puts and calls on spy and qqq along with longing and shorting the crypto market. If there are opportunity elsewhere I will trade things like ENS domain names, NFTs, soybeans, and other stocks. I wake up every day and look for setups.. I don’t believe in leverage trading at all. I always just use large amounts of my portfolio instead of the so called 5-10% of your capital. I trust myself now and am confident in my trades. Since April I haven’t lost a trade. I got quality over quantity and take anywhere from 3-10 trades per month.
