Today marked the day that I was preparing for, for the past two months. For those new to this site, this past November I was contacted by Expert Trader Jason Stapleton and asked to run a Live Ratio based trading room for his company.  I accepted this offer and the plan was to start off the year with a bang so we decided to offer the public a free two week trial in the room. Originally, we meant to close the room after the first 200 people signed up. Unfortunately (or fortunately I should say) we forgot to put that cap on the room and ended up with over 2,000 people signed up.  Therefore Jason decided to turn this into a bigger event then what is was originally suppose to be. Instead of just offering two free weeks, we added a "Trading As Your Business" presentation by Jason himself, along with a special guest speaker that will becoming in this and next Friday to talk about trading psychology.  Needless to say I was pretty excited.  When I entered the room today it was the biggest audience that I have ever spoken to. I usually don't get nervous about much, but I felt that way this morning. I think it may have been more of a combination of lack of sleep and too much coffee but that all ended within the first five minutes of speaking. We had a great group in the room and every one of them asked intelligent question which was great since I was expecting there to be at least one "smart guy." You know, that guy that attends something just to haggle the presenter.  Anyway, the opportunity was great and I received many positive comments during and after the presentation. I look forward to working with those other traders tomorrow and for the rest of the week and

Hey Nuno, thanks for the comment, thanks for the good luck wishes and I'm glad that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. This is a crazy career path we're in but Jason provided us with all of the tools needed to succeed. Now it's up to us to either do or die. Scary though knowing that only 10-20% make it.

Akil, Kudos to you on an excellent job in the live room. The art of explaining to people who haven't had the benefit of taking Jason's Pro Trader Course is a difficult one for sure, but you have a talent for it. It sure is fun to be in a in a live room environment again and getting a ratio refresher. Never hurts to keep on learning every chance you get.
Also your web site is awesome. I especially love the daily quote of the day, as well as following your posts on your trading trials, tribulations and ultimate success as they closely mirror my own path.

Thanks Ted, Taking Jason's Pro Trader class seems like a blessing in disguise now. I remember asking for advice at the time because it cost so much compared to what I was making and what I had saved up, but after a few days in the course I felt as if it was worth every penny already. I'm glad you love the site and if you would ever like to contribute a story of your own please let me know. I'd be glad to post it for you

Akil, thank you for sharing your knowledge on your forex trading. I attend your webinar but unfortunately the audio was not very reliable. I just wish that the webinar can be recorded for later viewing.

Hey Amiazmel thanks for the kind words. Sorry about the audio, try sending a message to Darren if you come to another session and maybe he can help you get some assistance. When we do events and training's we usually record them, but since this is just a "live room" we don't have it recorded.
