RagingBull | Member Spotlight

This month we are shining the spotlight RagingBull as the June Member Social sponsor.

This was their first time hosting a Member Social and what a great night and turnout for their event. They had a whisky tasting table and a cigar table from our friends at Federal.

Founded by experienced traders Jeff Bishop and Jason Bond, Raging Bull first began helping investors as early as 1997, and was one of the first financial websites on the Internet.

Raging Bull now brings together the combined trading experience of many self-made millionaire stock traders, each of whom who put their money to work every day in the markets by actively trading stocks, ETFs, options, small-cap, and biotech stocks. Through its website at RagingBull.com, the company provides both new and experienced traders alike from all walks of life with stock ideas, analysis and opinion, and practical training and coaching programs to get started trading stocks and with ways to become a better, more profitable trader. Raging Bull’s experts have featured in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Huffington Post, Seeking Alpha, The Street, and other major media outlets and news channels.

In addition to Raging Bull, Jeff & Jason founded the RagingBull.com Foundation to donate trading profits from its community of active traders.

To date the foundation has made over $300,000 in donations and pledged to donate over $1 million in trading profits to charity in 2019.

Thank you RagingBull for hosting such a wonderful evening!

Isiah Thomas With Cheurlin Champagne

Thomas, who has evolved from player to coach to entrepreneur, sees dozens of business proposals come across his desk each month.

“We get 15 to 20 a month, and 15 to 20 of them are just bad.”

But, when the one from Cheurlin landed on his desk Thomas was intrigued.

Cheurlin sought a partner to help them get their product into the USA, and, admits Thomas, “I like to do the things that everyone says cannot be done, and many people said this could not be done.”

Known for his business savvy and philanthropic endeavors as much as his storied athletic career, Isiah and his wife Lynn wanted a healthier, great tasting champagne without the added sugar.

Isiah is quick to point out, “it had to be reasonably priced and it definitely couldn’t come with a headache the next day.

It took years but that’s exactly what we found in Cheurlin Champagne.”

In France, Thomas Cheurlin dreamed of taking his family’s champagne to the U.S., where he would introduce American consumers to “grower champagnes,” environmentally-friendly champagne production, and the superior taste harvested from Cheurlin grapes.

The recent partnership between Isiah Thomas and Thomas Cheurlin may seem unlikely, but when you see these two men together, you find great similarities. Both men share a devotion to honesty and hard work, a commitment to excellence and collaboration, a passion for giving back, and a love of great champagne.

After forming their alliance, ISIAH Imports was born and Cheurlin Champagnes was introduced to the United States.

It was an honor to host Isiah, to celebrate his newly developed partnership and introduce Cheurlin Champagne to the Seacoast.
