Hi, I am Markus Heitkoetter. I live in Austin, TX, and I am a multi-millionaire. In 2002, I left my job as a director at IBM and moved all the way from Munich in Germany to Austin, TX to become a trader. These days, I am trading stocks and options, I am investing in real estate and I’m running a business. In this podcast, I let you peek “behind the scenes” and share my ups and downs, my successes and my failure, my struggles and victories… in short: everything! Enjoy the ride!
