The decision to bring this blog back came yesterday while grabbing a bite to eat at a local Sheetz. I had just returned from Barne's & Nobles where I where I was on a quest to find a new book relating to business marketing. Although I didn't find a book that fit my desires, I did read a few chapters in a couple of books that gave me some good inspiration. Thinking about what I had read encouraged me to bring back this blog, but it wasn't until I finished reading "The Babylon Report" (www. freebabylonreport.com ) a few hours ago, that I knew I had to get back to writing about business. After all that's how this site started out.
Much has changed since I originally started this blog. At first my goal was to make trading my business simply by growing my account and managing others. During that time period (as my followers from day one know) I have had many trials and tribulations. Documenting these adventures has not only given me a place to vent and clear my mind, but it also gave others out there like me a chance to learn and relate. Because my story can relate to so many others out there I began to pick up a lot more followers than I expected as well as make a lot of new friends along the way. Fortunately for me, my words (and the comments left by readers such as yourself) allowed me to gain the attention of my trading mentor. The same man that showed me how to be a successful trader, gave me the opportunity to share my journey through his various networks. Between that, and the actual hard work it took to become a good trader I am rethinking my overall business plan.
I have recently been put in the position where I act as a moderator of a Live trading room. I don't want to call myself a teacher, because I believe teaching a skill such as trading is and in order be good at it I need to be at an entirely different level from where I'm at now. But I will say this, that I feel as if I'm sort of a consultant or at least a role model to many of the novice traders in the room. Being on the education side of thing is something I never expected to do, but you know what, I really enjoy it and feel like I'm getting better at it each day (Kaizen). I love the feeling of people people saying I helped them out because deep down that's what brings me joy.
I'm excited to bring this blog back because at the end of the day I've always had a business like mind and when the wheels start turning I like to share.
