These Preteen Siblings Started a Business to Teach Both Kids and Adults How to Trade Stocks

The road to financial freedom started early for siblings Kali & Spirit Rahman.

Their company, Stock Up Kids, was created to help teach kids and even adults how to trade stocks. 

“It’s kind of cool knowing you do something really well that some adults don’t know how to do,” said 13-year-old Kali.

Stock Up Kids was created by the siblings in an effort to get noticed and fulfill their dreams of being noticed by the Ellen DeGeneres show’s crew.

At ages 7 and 9, Swing Trading became the way and they started paper trading on a system created by one of their mentors that did not require actual money. 

“We started with companies that we already knew like Nike, Microsoft, McDonald’s, and stuff like that, and we just used Yahoo finance which is a free website,” said Kali.

“Well, at first, it was because we were 7 and 9, and it was a little complicated, but as we started practicing and doing more of it, we learned more, and it got easier,” added Spirit.

Now, the brother & sister trade with real money and teach other children & adults all that they’ve learned over the years through Stock Up Kids. The topics include financial literacy & stock trading.

As entrepreneurs themselves, their parents, Gary and Calli, know the difficulties that come with running a business and are bursting with pride at the success of their children.

“We’re very proud of them in the way that they carry themselves and share the information,” said Calli. “They really want to give back.”
