From Prison To Financial Freedom: The Journey of Reshaping Your Identity


I’ll get right to it – I’m SO fired up to share the inspiring story of Leon Howard (aka “Wallstreet Trapper”) with you all. After falling into the prison system for 10 long years at a young age, Trap easily could have given up. He could have thrown in the towel and believed that the world had left him behind. Instead, he chose to educate himself and apply the things he learned (both in the books and on the streets) to his newfound career: the stock market, investing, and educating the masses about money. 

During our conversation, Trap also shares the biggest lessons he’s learned about building wealth, key steps to achieving financial freedom, how going to prison saved his life, and so much more. 

No matter if you’re looking for expert investing tips or just want to feel inspired today, I know you’ll love this episode. And now, please help me welcome the one-and-only, Wallstreet Trapper, to The School of Greatness!

“I only use money for 3 things: access, information, and assets.” @Wallstreet504  

Known for “educating the culture on how to build wealth one share at a time,” New Orleans native Leon Howard, popularly known as Wallstreet Trapper, has been dominating wealth building through the stock market for years. Growing up in New Orleans, Leon is no stranger to the streets and the pitfalls that come with it. During his 10 year prison bid he learned about the stock market and since then has been applying and teaching it to everyone willing to learn.

Through his company, From the Trap to Wallstreet, Leon provides a plethora of resources ranging from courses, ebooks, and a private members only group where he simplifies wealth creation and normalizes generational wealth for the black community through investing in the stock market. Today he has a community of over 800,000 Trappers that he teaches about investing and wealth building.
