Michael Shulman is currently editor of investment advisory services and is the author of Made in America, Otterbourn Publishing, May, 2013 and of Sell Short (John Wiley & Sons, 2009).
Options Income Blueprint is a unique advisory service published by Traders Reserve and based on fundamental analysis with recommendations for option selling strategies and positions to generate consistent monthly income.
Made in America: Inside Stories of Success is built around four factories -- Trek Bicycles, Red Wing Shoes, the GM Flint Michigan pickup truck assembly plant and Airstream. The book pushes aside the myth of the decline in the US manufacturing - the US is still the world's largest manufacturing nation - through the success of these four factories and companies.
Mr. Shulman joined the Traders Reserve after ten years with InvestorPlace Media, his turn to financial advisory services coming after more than twenty years actively involved in the development of new technologies. He was founder and CEO of an internet company, AtYourBusiness.com, sat on the board of The NextGen I venture fund, worked as a consultant or founding employee of several technology startups, was a product manager for a Silicon Valley Start up when the country had 49 personal computer companies and did similar work in the mid-1980s for AT&T.
Mr. Shulman graduated Georgetown University with a degree in philosophy in 1977, worked in the renewable energy field for five years – same vocabulary, hope and promises as we are hearing today - before moving to the marketing of industrial and agricultural products with several New York firms. When asked if there is a thread in his career his answer is “Yes. Change, what is new. And what other people are missing, things they think are not normal - things I see as becoming a standard or success."
