People overestimate what they can do in a month, and
underestimate what they can do in a year.

Innovation is incredibly important as an entrepreneur. You
need to do something in the sense of building a better mousetrap.

Innovation comes from problem solving, not from looking
at what the competitors are doing.

Rance Masheck, President and Founder of iVest+ (part of Market Gear), the company behind MarketGear, is bringing trading to the masses and show how everyday traders can prepare and respond to market volatility. With unprecedented levels of market volatility, many investors are seeking ways to secure their financial futures in the “new normal.” Market Gear is  a new DIY trading platform that was designed by leading educators with these investors in mind, offering a reimagined trading experience that uniquely combines portable technology, powerful insights, and highly-visual tools for continuous trading improvement. iVest+, an innovator in trading platforms for educators and retail investors, announced today its new pricing for its retail product Market Gear, the only stock and options trading platform for independent investors that packages powerful data and insights into easy-to-use tools and visuals for continuous improvement and optimal success. “For years, self-directed traders have been forced to choose between two unacceptable options. Either sacrifice key insights and information for a platform that offers ease-of-use, or choose a data-rich and cumbersome platform that is better suited for only the most seasoned professionals,” said Rance. Market Gear is also available as the first provider of Benzinga’s “on-the-go” Real-Time News and Live Squawk tools.

Don Bunnell – Founder of the Swank Guide

When you are building a small business that is not necessarily
impact based or mission driven, you are serving your family,
you are serving yourself, and you may be serving your
community. That has impact too.
