Today I’m looking into an investment system by Bryan Perry called 9-Month Millionaire, which he claims helped his readers turn $5,000 into $1,044,071 in about 9 months in 2021.
Now, in 2022, Bryan Perry states that the first 100 people who join his group of “beta-testers” will get the chance to do it again over the next 12 months. And according to Perry, it’s an “easy, predictable strategy” that virtually anyone can follow, so you don’t need much experience.
It’s a bold claim. In fact, I don’t think I’ve come across a presentation that claims to help everyday investors make this much money in such a short space of time.
Still, that doesn’t automatically mean it’s a scam, and Bryan Perry claims to have already done this twice (once in 2020 and again in 2021). So I wanted to learn more, and in this post, I’ll show you everything I found to help you make a more informed choice.
Who Is Bryan Perry?
Bryan Perry is an investment guru that specializes in dividend income and options trading, and he runs a site called Bryan Perry Investing (bryanperryinvesting.com).
Through that site, which is owned by Eagle Products, LLC, Bryan Perry publishes weekly investment-related blog posts and sells five different advisory services.
One service is called Cash Machine, which I recently reviewed. Another is called Quick Income Trader, which is the advisory you need to join to access Perry’s 9-Month Millionaire system. And he runs three others; Breakout Profit Alerts, Premium Income, and Hi-Tech Trader.
Each advisory focuses on different types of investments and investment strategies, but for the most part, Bryan Perry’s advisories center around high-yield investing.
Perry’s profile states that he combines his knowledge of dividend-paying investments and fundamental research to find high-yield stocks that can also deliver capital gains.
Aside from sharing investment tips, the 9-Month Millionaire presentation states that Bryan Perry spent “30 years as a high-end trader on Wall Street.”
And his profile on Bryan Perry Investing states that he spent more than two decades as a financial advisor to Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, and Paine Webber. It also claims that Perry is “frequently quoted” by Forbes, MarketWatch, and Business Week.
Lastly, during my research of Perry’s Cash Machine service, I came across a book he wrote in 2007 called “The 25% Cash Machine: Double Digit Income Investing.”
So, based on my research, Bryan Perry appears to be a real investment expert. That doesn’t mean his investment picks will make you rich, though. So let’s take a look at what the 9-Month Millionaire system is and how it works to get a better idea of whether or not it’s worth it.
What Is 9-Month Millionaire?
9-Month Millionaire is a system Bryan Perry created to help subscribers of Quick Income Trader turn $5,000 into one million dollars or more within nine months.
When I first heard that, I’ll admit I was skeptical. Because, in most cases, anything promising to help you make large sums of money within a short time is a get-rich-quick scam.
However, according to Bryan Perry, he’s already done it (twice).
As you can see from the following screenshots, the first time he claims to have turned $5k into a million was in 2020, and the second was in 2021:

Of course, just because Bryan Perry shows a screenshot of some trades in a presentation doesn’t prove his story. And I have no way of verifying whether it’s true or not, either.
But those are the 10-11 trades Bryan Perry claims turned $5k into over $1 million two years in a row. And he walks through each of the 2021 trades in more detail in the presentation, which helps clarify how his strategy works.
For example, the first 2021 trade was Virgin Galactic (SPCE) which he claims was opened on January 6. And according to Perry, it was closed 16 days later for a 73% gain.
And Perry says that the money from that trade made was rolled into the next trade, and so on, which is how the account went from $5,000 to $1,044,071 (by compounding).
Still, that represents a roughly 20,781% gain in nine months, which isn’t good; it’s unheard of. So, assuming it’s true, I wonder how sustainable that method would be over the long term since no trading expert on the planet consistently makes that much each year.
To help put things into perspective, according to Reuters, hedge funds made 10-12% on average in 2021, which is about the average long-term gain of the S&P 500.
That said, as I mentioned earlier, the percentage increase from $5,000 to $1,044,071 (20,781%) takes into account reinvesting the gains each trade made, which makes a big difference.
Still, whichever way you cut it, turning $5k into a million dollars in less than a year is well beyond average, so I don’t think that’s what Bryan Perry would be seeing year in, year out. And that was later confirmed by the following section of the presentation:
“During this presentation, you’ve witnessed how accurate each trade is. Almost every trade is a winner, with only two losses in 2021… and my system’s been making mountains of money for the past three years at the annualized rate of 330.2%.”
Based on the above statement Bryan Perry makes, the service has seen an annualized gain of 330.2% over the past three years. It’s unclear if that’s taking all the winning and losing trades into account, but it’s at least more believable than five-figure percentages.
In any case, to recap, the 9-Month Millionaire system is a trading system run by Bryan Perry that aims to help subscribers (AKA beta-testers) make a million dollars in nine months.
And according to Perry, he’s boiled the entire system down into a report called the 9-Month Millionaire Blueprint, which is a bonus you get for joining Quick Income Trader for $995.
I’ll explain what Quick Income Trader is shortly, but for now, let’s take a closer look at how the 9-Month Millionaire system works.

How Does the 9-Month Millionaire System Work?
The general idea behind the 9-Month Millionaire system is to sign up to Quick Income Trader, access the 9-Month Millionaire Blueprint, and follow Perry’s recommendations.
According to Bryan Perry, you don’t need a lot of prior experience to get started; all you need is a brokerage account with $5,000 in it, some funds to cover the trading fees, a device with an internet connection, and a copy of Perry’s “blueprint.”
From there, the idea is to follow the trade recommendations and learn from the resources you receive from Bryan Perry in the hopes of making money as a trader.
What sort of stocks does Bryan perry recommend?
According to the presentation, the 9-Month Millionaire system does not involve penny stocks, futures, “risky small caps,” or cryptocurrency.
Perry also says that his focus in 2021 was on tech stocks, particularly those in the 5G, EV, and AI space. And he worked on reducing the average time in each investment to 19 days. In other words, he focused on short-term tech stocks and compounding the gains.
And, from what I can gather, this is the approach he’s taking in 2022, too.
I also think his strategy might involve options.
Why? For one thing, Bryan Perry is an expert in options trading based on his website, and several of his advisory services involve trading options.
Also, while there are different strategies, options can help traders see higher returns in less time due to the leverage aspect. And using some form of leverage would be the only way I could see Perry could have made the gains he claims to have made.
For instance, one of the example trades Bryan Perry shares (see above) involved Macy’s (M) shares and showed a 100% gain. And when you cross-check that with what he states in the presentation, that gain was made in 16 days (from March 3 to March 19, 2021).
And since Macy’s stock didn’t rally 100% during that time, the most likely way Perry achieved a 100% gain would’ve been with some form of leverage (i.e., options).
To be clear, I don’t know for sure that Bryan Perry’s 9-Month Millionaire system involves options, but it makes sense, all things considered.
On the plus side, options can be a great way to increase your gains or earn income, depending on your strategy. However, on the other hand, options can be riskier and more complicated than trading regular shares.
Bryan Perry points out that the system is easy to follow, though. He even goes as far as to suggest that it’s as easy as ordering a pizza online.
“If you can order a pizza with toppings online, you can follow my trading instructions.”
That might be true, but there’s no substitute for learning how to trade yourself. Because if all you do is rely on someone else, you’re less likely to become a successful, independent trader.
That said, Bryan Perry does provide resources aimed at helping you become a successful trader. And you can access those, along with the 9-Month Millionaire Blueprint, as a subscriber of Quick Income Trader. So let’s take a look at what this service is about and how it works.
What Is Quick Income Trader?
According to Bryan Perry, Quick Income Trader is the name of the 9-Month Millionaire beta-testing program. It’s also the service you need to join if you want to try the 9-Month Millionaire system, which Perry claims has helped others turn $5k into over $1 million.
Quick Income Trader is about more than just 9-Month Millionaire, though. According to the Bryan Perry Investing website, it’s a “proven system for generating regular cash payments every month by selling out-of-the-money call options on a select group of market-leading stocks.”
What does “selling out-of-the-money call options” mean?
A call option gives you the right to buy or sell the underlying asset, like shares, at an agreed date and time. When you buy a call option, you’re hoping the underlying stock price will go up before the contract expires.
However, when you sell a call option, you’re selling that contract to someone else. And in doing so, you can generate immediate income through the option contract’s premium (the price the other person pays to buy a call option). And if the underlying share price stays the same or drops, you get to keep that premium, so it can be a way to generate income.
There’s a lot more to it than that, but that’s the gist of how it works. And there’s a helpful article on Business Insider if you want to learn more about selling call options.
As far as an “out-of-the-money” call option goes… out of the money (OTM) means that the underlying asset is trading below the strike price of the call option.
For example, if the call option has a strike price of $10 (meaning you can buy the underlying shares at $10 if you exercise the contract), and the stock is trading at $9, it would be OTM.
You don’t really need to know all of this before joining Bryan Perry’s service; I just thought I’d give you a quick overview since his service involves selling call options.
As you might have guessed, there’s a lot to learn about options in general. So it’s a good thing the service comes with some training, which I’ll elaborate on in the next section.
What Do You Get If You Join Quick Income Trader?
Everything you need to learn and follow Bryan Perry’s strategy is included in a subscription to Quick Income Trader, which costs $995 for 12 months’ access.
The main benefits include the 9-Month Millionaire Blueprint, weekly trade recommendations, and “alerts” that keep you updated on Bryan Perry’s recommendations.
Aside from that, there are some bonus resources aimed at helping you learn how to trade and get more out of the service, including guides, videos, and a six-monthly conference call.
Here’s a quick breakdown to show you what’s included:
- A Lifelong “Pension Plan:” This is another strategy Bryan Perry uses within Quick Income Trader that focuses on selling (AKA writing) covered call options, the strategy we touched on earlier. This strategy is designed to help you generate income with options and, in and of itself, it is a legitimate method of earning income in a relatively conservative manner. As part of this strategy, subscribers receive a report titled “Lifelong Income: The ‘One-Hour Pension Plan.'”
- Quick Income Trader Video Series: This is a video series on how Bryan Perry’s 9-Month Millionaire system works that also includes the “theory and secrets” behind the system.
- Conference calls: Every six months or so, Bryan says he conducts a live conference call where he shares his latest insights and outlook on the market.
As mentioned, the cost to join Quick Income Trader is $995 for 12 months. However, there are two other options; one costs $1,695 for two years, and the other is $275 each quarter.
Can you get a refund?
According to the Bryan Perry Investing website, there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee on this service. Here’s how the website words it:
“You MUST be 100% thrilled with your earnings and your new life within your first 30 days with Quick Income Trader, or I insist on rushing you back every penny you paid to join.”
Is 9-Month Millionaire a Scam?
I don’t believe the 9-Month Millionaire system, or Quick Income Trader, is a scam.
Why? For one thing, Bryan Perry seems like a real investment expert. He has 30 years of experience in finance and, according to the website, has a good track record.
Second, Eagle Products, LLC, the company behind all of this, is a real company that sells a host of advisory services from some of the most well-known finance experts in the space. For example, Bob Carlson, Jim Woods, and Mark Skousen.
And third, there’s a refund policy in place. So even if the service turns out to be not what you were expecting, the website says you can get a refund during your first 30 days.
In the end, I chose not to join the service, so I don’t know from personal experience how well it has performed. However, based on what I’ve seen, I don’t think it’s a scam.
Although I do think it’d be wise to take some of the marketing with a grain of salt because, in my opinion, there are some bold claims in the presentation. The idea of making a million dollars in nine months may sound exciting, but it just doesn’t seem very realistic to me.
I’m not saying Bryan Perry is making the whole thing up. I guess I’m just a bit skeptical when it comes to this sort of thing, and I personally wouldn’t join ANY service expecting to see anywhere near that sort of return within nine years, let alone nine months.
Another thing worth mentioning is that even if Bryan Perry did turn $5,000 into $1,044,071 in 2021, that doesn’t guarantee the service will see a positive return in the future. And, as with any service, there’s even a chance you could lose money when speculating in the market.
Bryan Perry’s 9-Month Millionaire system is laid out in a “blueprint” you get with a subscription to Quick Income Trader, a $995 per year trading service.
As part of the service, you receive training, trade recommendations, and other resources aimed at helping you generate income and capital gains in the months ahead.
On the one hand, it could be worth checking out if you want to learn more about Bryan Perry’s 9-Month Millionaire strategy, which he claims helped him turn $5k into just over $1 million. And if you want to learn how to earn income with options from an expert in this field.
On the other hand, I want to re-emphasize that there’s no guarantee the service will help you make $1 million in nine months, or at all. And in my opinion, that’s not a very realistic goal.
Of course, anything is possible. But if you join on the basis of making big money in a short time period, and that doesn’t happen, it could lead to disappointment.
