I'm not sure if it's the years of being involved in team sports, or working summer camps that did it, but my ultimate goal in life is to help others. I know it sounds cheesy, but ask any of my friends, it's just the way I am. Anyway, like many of you I've had dreams of being a millionaire since I was a young child, but I also told myself that once I make my money I want to help others make it as well. I now feel like I'm getting the opportunity to do this with the help of my trading mentor and good friend Jason. Recently I've been given the chance to run a live trading room that acts as a support system for new and seasoned traders. It's cool because I've been getting a lot of positive feedback saying that I'm keeping them from making as many errors as well as helping them with their trading psychology. We're also making a ton on money in the room which is a plus as well. Because this room has been going so well I was also recently asked to become a contributor to an insider trading group called the "6 Figure Syndicate." At first I expected just to post my trading ideas or other cool stuff that I may see in the market. But to my surprise I've actually been involved in some pretty good conversations with a few of the members. And being the trading nerd that I am, I love it.
Now back to the original reason I started writing this post (which actually slipped my mind as I started thinking of other reasons). The question was why do I love trading so much? Well aside from the fact that I get to be my own boss and make my own work schedule. I get excited because trading can be done from anywhere. Currently I'm in South Carolina which is a good 10+ hours from where I call home. This is a trip that I take every year with the Track & Field team that I coach. In the past I would have to beg in order to get off from work, miss a week's paycheck then have to hustle for more hours the following week in order to stay even with the bills and what not. This year I simply packed up my home office and took it on the road with me. Yes I have to adjust the time that I run the live room do to our teams practice schedule but other than that I'm able to carry on my trading business as if nothing happened. Oh and I get a beautiful view of the beach each morning.
Thinking into the future, the freedom to work from any location could potentially be very helpful because if my wife-to-be ever gets a job offer where she is forced to relocate, I would have no problem packing up right with her and allowing her to follow her dreams.
Alright back to the beach traders I'll talk to you later in the week.
