Member News – Mohit Jain – new member to EONJ

I recently joined EO. I was really impressed by the EO test drive and the Mock forum.

I founded my business Math Genie in 2008. We are an after school enrichment program specializing in Mental Math & Reading/Writing.

The idea for the business came when I was visiting India and I saw a small child to do complex Mental Math. We started with a single location with 3 students. It has now grown to  4 locations with over 1000 students who have gone through our program. Our long term plan is to grow organically and possibly go Nationwide at the appropriate time.

Prior to starting Math Genie I had many jobs and businesses. I have worked as a day trader on the stock market. I have worked for a Diamond trading company and sold diamonds in Asia and Europe. I have worked as an IT consultant for Goldman Sachs and flipped distressed houses.

I grew up in India and got a degree in Accounting. I have lived in Mumbai, Antwerp, Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok before coming to the US.

My wife Naina is the Co-Founder of Math Genie. Both of us are passionate about Children’s learning. She manages the training and curriculum while I manage the marketing and business development. Together we love to travel and try to visit a new destination every year. We live in East Brunswick, NJ

A Different Way to Borrow Money

By Susan McGlory Michel

Many people do not realize that they can use their investment securities as collateral to borrow money at very competitive rates.  If you are looking to start or expand a business, purchase a new car or boat, pay for a child’s education or even pay for unexpected healthcare expenses and you own investment securities, such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds or ETFs, you may want to consider setting up a line of credit or taking a loan against the value of some of your investment securities, especially if these are securities that you desire to hold as long term investments.  Security based lines of credit are not margin loans and cannot be used to purchase additional investment securities, but they can be used for most other types of expenses.  These loans typically allow you, the borrower, to borrow up to 70% of the market value of the pledged stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds.  Click here to read more.

Kraig Kalashian (KKAD)- New member story.

In order to understand my background, I think it’s important to understand my parents.   My parents are first generation Americans whose parents immigrated to the US in the beginning of the 20th Century.  My parents grew up in the post-depression 1930’s and the survival skills they learned growing up have always been a part of my life.   I grew up in a middle class Long Island suburb and have always lived within 60 miles of my childhood home.
