As a CEO, and financial educator, Tom Sosnoff has encountered his fair share of difficulties and obstacles. However, as he recalls in his talk, true financial literacy isn't possible without taking a few risks.

Tom Sosnoff is the founder and co-CEO of dough, Inc., which includes tastytrade, the fastest growing online financial network, and dough, a financial technology content aggregator.

Tom is a recognized online brokerage innovator and sought-after financial educator. Tom founded thinkorswim in 1999 (selling it to TD Ameritrade for $600 million in 2009), and tastytrade in 2011.

Leveraging over 20 years of experience as a market maker for the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) Tom pursued a vision to educate retail investors in options trading and to build a superior software platform at a brokerage firm that specialized in options. His efforts ultimately changed the way these instruments were traded by individual investors.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
