It is an ongoing struggle to generate alpha in this down market…but that doesn't mean the chance to profit is over.

At TradeTech West 2008, taking place September 15-17, 2008 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, CA, Christopher Gardner will show you how to find success, even when odds are stacked about you.

Christopher Gardner is the head of his own successful brokerage firm, but just 20 years ago, Gardner was homeless, carried all his possessions on his back and lived-on occasion-in a bathroom at a Bay Area Rapid Transit station in Oakland, California.

A true testament to the perseverance it takes to make it from "rags-to-riches", Gardner tells his story of overcoming obstacles, "breaking cycles", and the motivation it takes to make your own success.

Listen as he recounts his fears of failure, exhaustion of pursuit, and great appreciation to those that helped him. Gardner's storytelling captures his audience completely, and his humor lights up the room.
